Our shelf was designed to be centered between a window and the stove ventilation hood. The client specified the height and I constructed a simple 2×4 and pine support shelf to hold the shelf unit at the proper height while I leveled the shelf and marked the mounting holes in in the wall flange on the wall tiles.

Note – Under shelf lighting will be added later.

Tip: Mark the center of the wall space and the center of the shelf as reference marks. Also place a level on the pipes and ensure the vertical pipes are plumb prior to marking the holes.

Mark all of the holes with a marker and use a masonry bit in my drill and pre-drilled 16 mounting holes through my tiles. I used a 1/8” glass/ceramic bit to start all of the holes and then a ¼” bit to enlarge the holes.  Use a larger drill bit than the shank of your fasteners to avoid cracking tiles.
