Run 4" soapstone backplash behind rangetop?
We are doing soapstone counter tops and are thinking of going with straight 4" back splash of the same material in lieu of introducing yet another design element for the back splash.
The thought is that we only have one run of counter along the wall that we could put a back splash, but on that wall there are two windows and the range so there is very little real estate to do something different in terms of a tile or stone or whatever because I feel it would look too chopped up.
So we are leaning towards the 4" soapstone back splash along that run with painted surface above. Behind the range top we are thinking of the 4" back splash with a SST back splash above the soapstone in that area.
We are installing a wolf range top and I have two questions:
One, is there room behind the Wolf range top to run the 4" back splash
Two, if we could do that would it look silly and should we just do all SST behind the range top?
