Backsplash dilemma over desk area
sagirls
November 6, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I am adding a small desk next to my cabinet and getting new granite. The desk will have a darker remnant granite.. And sits between the lower cabinet and a chair rail. The counter granite will sit flush to the tile backsplash. I will have a bulletin board framed under the shelf. Do I need a granite. backsplash because of the chair rail? The chair rail has been cut even with the desk.

Are you removing the chair rail above the desk? I would prefer to have the desk look like an extension of the kitchen. What type of backsplash will you have for the counters?

Curt, I guess that was soberg's answer to this question:
Do I need a granite backsplash because of the chair rail?

I wouldn't put the backsplash over the desk if you are putting a bulletin board there, but I think the granite countertop on the desk should match the rest of the kitchen. It will look like an afterthought if it is a different remnant piece.

Yeah I wouldn't extend the backsplash there either
