Around 12 years ago I had natural slate backsplash 4 by 4 tile installed in my kitchen. The counters were cheap Laminate with a 4 inch vertical lip of backsplash. At the time I left that laminate in place.
I am now having Silestone quartz counters installed. The quartz is thicker than the laminate. I have two options regarding the replacement of the cheap laminate backsplash. I can replace with same quartz or I have slate tile leftover from 12 yrs ago. Problem is that the slate tiles would have to be cut a good 1/2 inch AND it's the bottom row. Has anyone ever seen a bottom row of backsplash that isn't full size? Slate is my preference but concerned about short bottom row. Thoughts?
