I recently installed a new exhaust hood in my kitchen. As the new one is slightly larger than the old one, it was necessary for me to remove a row of tiles and mortar below for it to properly fit. Here is a picture of the exhaust vent from below, showing where the tiles are removed:
I'm looking for a way to cover this up in a cosmestically nice way that doesn't necessarily have to include tiles. I have the following ideas in mind
- Removing the remaining mortar and make a new layer such that it is smooth or
- Removing the remaining mortar and use an acrylic plate to cover it up
Do you have any other suggestions that could look nice?
