Backsplash options that are tolerant of wall imperfections?
We have installed almost all our cabinets. The flooring and countertops are installed soon. Time to think about the backsplash. I want my backsplash to go up to the wall cabinets. I have a run that is very long at 17+ feet. We didn't touch the framing of this wall in our remodel and it is not straight. We are talking about 1/2 inch humps within 4' range.
Would large tiles (e.g. 18"x18") be more tolerant of the imperfections than smaller tiles, or is it the other way around?
Has anyone seen or thought of using vinyl (floor) tiles or even vinyl sheets on backsplash? Is there any reason not to use them? I would not put them behind a stove, but other than that, they should work well on a non-flat wall, right?
I do suspect that vinyl backsplash will not look right above stone (quartz for us) countertop, but I cannot find any pictures.
Any input? Thank you!
