Fitting a cooker hood over tiles

Hello guys,

I recently had the kitchen walls tiled, in the area between the two wall cabinets where the hood is doing, was tilled to the top of the cabinets.

The hood will go all the way up to the ceiling. The hood back of the hood will be sitting half on the tils and half against the painted wall, but obviously there will then be a gap between the back of the hood and the wall for it to sit virtually.

Anyone got any ideas how I can get around this? I guess it will look more off with the chimney part of the hood, sitting away from the wall.

Hello guys,

Re-read through my post on Saturday morning. Please excuse my poor use of the English language.

Anyhow, to the matter in hand. What I ended up doing for lining up the top of the hood with the top of the tiles, cutting a small corner of the chimney section so it sat over the tiles and had it flush up the wall. They chimney sits about 6mm further back on the hood than it should but
as a work around it appears to have worked quite well.
