laminate countertops with built in backsplash or not

Karen

I was planning on getting laminate countertops for my kitchen remodel WITHOUT the built in/rolled backsplash ... but my kitchen designer told me that I need to get the backsplash ... because walls can be uneven, it can be difficult to line the laminate up perfectly to the wall, have to grout, the grout can crack, and water damage can occur.

Yet, I am seeing many articles and posts about people skipping the built in backsplash, because it looks so much nicer. How are they doing it?

Wondering what anyone else is hearing or doing.

Thanks
