Put granite straight to the wall or with a 3-4" backsplash?
June 22, 2014 in Design Dilemma
We are having granite installed in our kitchen. Our current countertop goes up the wall about 3". Most pictures I've seen have the granite just touching the wall and then tile is used as a backsplash. My concern is if the granite doesn't go up the wall a few inches (instead just stops at the wall) do I risk water damage to the wall (especially behind the sink)? From the pictures I've seen, it looks like there's just a bit of caulk between the tile backsplash and where it meets the granite. Appreciate any input!
