Backsplash Question

hough2012October 8, 2013

Our build is winding down and we're starting to plan the backsplash. We have light switches that extend past the counter/upper cab. Not sure where backsplash should end. I believe we have to extend out past the switches. Should we then take it down to the floor?

IMO it would look like a mistake. I'd have the switch moved to under the cabinet.

Move the switches. You might be able to use a double switch that fits into a single switch box rather than a double box. Then you wouldn't need to move the box (or at least not much, it's hard to tell from the photo), just patch the hole.

Thanks. I think moving the switches would be the best option and I'm trying to convince DH that it wouldn't delay things. He is very anxious to be finished and moved in.

The quick fix of not moving the switch and figuring out how to do the backsplash around it is something you will have to live with permanently. A short delay is a short delay.

Why live with something weird for years because you are getting impatient?

You could put in a switch like this, like catbuilder suggested.

I would have had the same problem and just popped the switch into the adjoining room - problem solved.
It looks like you could do the same thing.
