Backsplash before countertop installation?

May 20, 2010

I'm curious to know if anyone has done their backsplash while they were waiting for countertop installation. I'm going to have about a week from when cabinets are installed till counters are installed. To me, it would only make sense to do the backsplash. But, I know there is always the risk that the countertop won't add the amount of height they say. Or that this will make it more difficult to install the counters, potentially damaging the backsplash. What would you do? Wait for counters or tile before they arrive?
