Select a common or custom backsplash height:
Standard backsplash is 4"- or 6" that covers a small area of the wall starting from the countertop.
Full backsplash will cover the area between your countertop and the bottom of the upper cabinets. A full backsplash may also extend to the ceiling.
While these options are standard, you can have a custom height backsplash if you wish.
One of the great benefits to choosing granite countertops is that you can have a backsplash made from the same slabs giving you a smooth, consistent look.
Finding the Right Fit
A 4-inch and 6- inch backsplash does not require as much material as a full backsplash, making it a more budget-friendly option
One disadvantage of a 4-inch backsplash is that it does not protect your entire wall the way that a full backsplash will. Because of this, most of your wall will still be exposed to potential kitchen hazards such as grease. One way to lessen the negative aspect of this is to install a full backsplash behind your stove while installing a 4-inch backsplash behind the countertop.
Striking appearance that will highlight the look of your countertop
Full backsplashes make cleaning easier because they have fewer grout lines (as opposed to tile backsplashes).
As can be expected, more material will come at a higher cost. However, between the beauty and durability you will get from a full backsplash, the cost can be well worth it.
