How to add a backsplash above a granite lip...
My kitchen has black granite with a 4" lip. Not my choice - the builder did it, its a 4 year old kitchen (nothing I need or want to rip out any time soon)
Anyway, I do not like having a painted backsplash AT ALL. I actually cook, and a painted surface is completely impractical. It gets dirty, does not wipe clean easily and requires repainting frequently.
I want to add simple off-white/tan subway tile, but I'm afraid it will look like an afterthought. I am not trying to achieve high-design here. I just want it to be functional and I want it to look correct.
