So what would you do with this cooker surround?

    Hi all

    Recently fitted a cooker into my fireplace and need some ideas on how to go about finishing around the hob section.

    Back wall can be trued up and tiled no issue but the sides are naturally as wonkey as the rest of the house. I need something that's easily wipeable and fairly long lasting but still fits in with the cottage.

    What are your thoughts?

    Tiles,sides can still be tiled even following contour of the wall.:)

    Stainless steel, not cottagey, but practical,thin sheet, easy to keep clean & long lasting.

    Other option chop off plaster on sides to level up, then over board with Hardie board or similar & tile on that.

    Would only need to go down to about 100mm below cooker sides.

    Glass splashback, need to be custom templated and manufactured

    Available in 1,000 colours, just choose RAL number and that’s it

    Can choose to either template and fit yourself or get a glass company in to do job

    Glass panels foil backed to protect sprayed finish then simply bonded to wall with mirror adhesive

    Dry fit first and true up to some degree with plastic packers (bonded to wall) if major p issed

    Then big blobs of adhesive, pushed into final position, support with gaffa tape and a temp batten along base

    Will look fantastic :)

    Could even level up wall with cement fibre board,as I mentioned earlier, then fix glass splashback to that.

    I would go for a coloured glass splasback back and sides and then use a stainless steel L shaped trim up the front edges to hide the wobbly plaster on the front.
