Backsplash above cooktop & below hood

Recommended Posts

I would like to create a tile or stone backsplash covering the wall area above the kitchen cooktop and below the hood.  Please see the attached JPG picture of this kitchen area.  The backsplash will be a different material and larger of course than the backsplash used above the countertops and below the wall cabinets.  I will use a tile/stone from a Manuafacturer Catalog in the program library.

 

I haven't figured out how to apply the material to just this one small section of wall.  The program tends to want to apply the material to the entire kitchen wall.  I have looked for a solution in the self help Q&A section but can't seem to find the answer.  Your help is appreciated.

If you don't have a Custom Backsplash tool (found under the Cabinet tools) try a Soffit. It may be reshaped and covered with a material of your choice.

There are Shapes in the Library Browser.  Use a Closed box geometric shape resized to be very thin against the wall and apply the material you want to use to it.

Thank you solver & katalyst777.  I had not yet discovered the Custom Backsplash tool ... very handy!  That is what I used.  I've found that the Soffit tool also solves a variety of problems.  I will also play with the Shapes.

Thanks,
