Great and timely article for me. I am choosing a splash edge made out of my countertop for a clean look, and will have the backsplash of the range area also out of my countertop. I decided not to have tiling as a backsplash, as I want my custom painted "vista grey" cabinets and my Silestone Charcoal Soapstone countertops to be the stars. I love your picture of the curved backsplash made out of the countertop, beautiful! ( I may steal this idea). Thank you for this article!!

We took our backsplash all the way to the floor keeping the wall clean behind the trash can.
