What thickness is a granite backsplash?
It seems that some decisions are made without even thinking, and some I agonize over, changing my mind every 10 minutes. The backsplash is one of those.
We've made some changes that I'm not sure I'm going to like, but it's done now. We've eliminated the double oven cabinet and put the 27" oven in a base cabinet and the microwave in a upper. That will give us more counter space, but it also changes my backsplash ideas.
Originally I had planned to put granite behind the cooktop only, and beadboard beside it. While I think I would really like beadboard, I don't know that it would look right, or help sell when the time comes.
My kitchen cabinets will be similar to this color. The vent hood cabinet will go to the ceiling, but the others will have a soffit above, probably painted white. I haven't picked a granite or floor tile yet, but I think they will be similar to this photo also, or a little lighter. My walls will be lighter too, and I have a galley style, no cabinets on the end, and no island.
My appliances are white, except my dishwasher. It is stainless because we thought it would look better with the dark cabinets, but I despise it. It never looks good, even after cleaning it, it has smears. So I'm sticking with white appliances. I'd like to have a lighter backsplash than the above kitchen, but what has me stymied is what to do behind the cooktop. I had tile behind it before, and it was a royal pain to clean. Stainless would be easy to clean, but I'm afraid it would always look bad between cleanings, like my dishwasher.
Would that granite look good behind the cooktop, or is it too busy? What is the thickness of granite when used on the backsplash, and is it usually flush with tile used beside it?
