#watashi11 This small, 36" archway leads into a walk-through butler's pantry, and then through another 36" archway into the dining room. In a home of this size (about 6,000 SF), most passages are planned to be at minimum 48" wide-- but this little passage into the dining room is meant to feel sort of like a secret "back entry" into the kitchen. So, to get that feeling, we brought the width down to a skinny 36".

#stephaniestokes The countertops in this laundry room are made of engineered stone by Cambria; the color is Cuddington, product code #0850, from the Desert Collection. We used a 1.5" Ogee round edge detail to make the material look more traditional.

#Plummer You are probably going to get different opinions on this question, but I prefer to install the tile on the wall first and then install the hood on top of the tile. (We did it that way with the hood in this photo.) Your issue of of uneven tile can complicate this, of course.
We just finished an install where the hood was placed on top of traditional ceramic tile that had been floated about 3/4" off the wall. We would have been okay except that the tile didn't run all the way up the wall: it stopped just above the working part of the hood, right at the base of the duct cover. This meant that we ended up with a 3/4" reveal between the duct cover and the wall. We solved the problem by making a 3/4" drywall "check" in the wall in the profile of the duct cover.
You could do something similar by creating a raised drywall platform in the shape of the hood that is perhaps 1/8" larger than the hood all around. This is only going to work if you have a squarish hood and a skilled drywall installer, however.
You may be better off installing the hood first and tiling up to it. Just make sure that you take a look at the back of the hood, underneath, where it touches the wall. Sometimes this part of the hood is too thin to catch a thicker tile, and you will need to find some kind of trim to make the tile look finished in this area.

Thank you.....the added drywall in the shape of the hood it probably the best idea. The tile is glass and is almost a basket weave. At $39.00 SF not counting install, I want to get it right the first time!! Thanks so much for your help!!!

#rhartwell I'm sorry, this light fixture from Uttermost was purchased some time ago and I'm told that it is no longer available. I can refer you to some new fixtures with a similar look: Quoizel's Genova line, for example, and the Vetraio Collection from Quoizel. You can also find inexpensive fixtures at Lamps Plus and Mayfair such as the Sheridan 2-light island fixture from Sheridan (see attached for photos).
