Should I install chimney range hood before ceramic tile or after?

The best result would be to install the fixture after the tiles are installed and grouted.

Hi Gisele,

The tile should be completely installed, grouted and sealed due to the moisture and grease. Preferably have your installer use epoxy grout. It is essentially one step grout and sealer and extremely hard wearing but it is tricky to work with.... not for the inexperienced tiler.
