The normal space is 18" for the backsplash between lower and upper kitchen cabinets. Within this space, you can choose to use the 4.5" h backsplash in the same material your counter is in. It can be very dramatic to use the entire 18" to create a design statement using decorative tile inlay for the entire backsplash. With you 9 1/2 foot height of ceiling, you certainly have the ability to instal the taller upper cabinets, but the backslash distance stays the same! Enjoy your remodel!
