Laying out Stainless walls - Fri, 04/19/13 5:32 PM
Hi all I'm about to put up the backsplash but I'm in a doubt as what the best way to lay it out, the sheet is 10X4 and the whole wall is 6'2" X 6'2", also my hood is 5 feet long,
I was thinking about going horizontally but I don't know.
Any opinions from the builders here?

My hood is 8 foot but i went stud to stud.  No stainless behind the hood just open wall.
The sheet starts at the fender top and goes up.  I cut two small pieces to fill the gap from the fender top down on the floor in front and behind fender.

Suggest you run your seams vertically, keep any seams away as much as possible from high splash exposure areas.  Cover the seam with a molding that can be removed, screws versus rivets.  Makes it easy to keep that area and what's behind it very clean.
