I'm about to embark on fitting a new gas hob into the new worktop and
have turned my thoughts towards the splashback behind the hood which we
are intending to use stainless steel for. The hob is kind of in a
corner (ish) - that is, the wall to the right of the hob juts out about

What I would ideally like to do is have the stainless steel splashback
coming around the corner (i.e. # in the diagram). The way I see it is
these are the options:
1) Two seperate sheets of stainless steel - one at the back and one at
the side. How would I go about joining these though?
2) Have one sheet of steel fabricated with a fold to fit into the corner
- anyone any ideas how much something like that would cost? What type
of business would I need to look for to do it?
Presumably 2 would give the neater finish, but I suspect it will be more
expensive and may be difficult to get spot on as our walls tend to be
anything but purpendicular.
If we went for 1, I thought a cheap option would be to buy a wide
standard splashback (i.e. 750mm x 1000mm) and cut the two splashbacks
from it (i.e. 1 at 600mm wide and 1 at 250mm wide) - how hard is
stainless steel sheet to cut with - can it be done with a jigsaw?
Any help appreciated.
