Foregoing the Granite Backsplash
Based on our preferences and good advice on GW, we are going to forgo the standard 4" granite backsplash in our kitchen remodel. We aren't sure what kind of backsplash we want, so we are going to paint and live with it for a while. However, when we do ultimately put in a backsplash, we would mostly likely do it along the two long walls of the L-shape (i.e., behind the sink and cooktop). My question is whether it will look OK to not do any sort of backsplash behind the angled cabinet next to the refrigerator.
Also, we are planning to do a vanity with matching granite in the powder room adjacent to the kitchen. Should we skip the backsplash and sidesplash there? We are worried that kids washing their hands in there without a backsplash will ruin the walls, and we definitely do not plan to put tile or any other type of backsplash in the powder room.
