Kitchen 'Sidesplash' - Yes or No (with pics)

So we had our old laminate countertops/backsplash ripped out and installed new Formica 180FX. They make a pretty good fake granite. So now we need a new tile backsplash. Here's some pics:

Plan was to put tile everywhere the old laminate backsplash was installed, but now I'm wondering about the sidesplash. Found this post that says to use paint. Well now that complicates things!

And then I was watching HGTV and saw this modern sidesplash.

So maybe the problem with the sidesplash at the Kitchen Clarity blog is just that it's outdated?

Any opinions on what to do with the sidesplash would be appreciated!

Thanks,

Matt
