Height of sink faucet to backsplash height

Talk about minor details! I am ordering my sink faucet for a master bathroom. For my backsplash, I am using the standard 4" countertop material rather than tile. Would it look strange for the sink faucet to be higher than the backsplash? The faucet that I love comes in a short or tall arc. The tall arc looks a little more formal, which I like. But, I don't know about that height issue.

Thank you!

Of course it DOESN'T matter at all. Install the one you want to look at every day. ;-)

Ack, so now I am liking the low arch one a little better (so great that I can do a 180 in a span of 10 min). But, I think the high arc one will work better with my tub. question....can I mix a high arc roman tub with a low arc sink from the same "collection"?

Here they are:

They are from the same collection and will be just perfect. Can you visit a showroom and actually get your hands on them? That always seals the deal for me, as photos aren't always what they seem. I cannot tell you how many drawer handle samples I tried before my final decision.

What is it you like better about the low arc faucet? Just the looks? I have a 4" tile backsplash and my high arc faucet looks fine (to me). It never occurred to me that it would be a problem. What (I) do find a problem is trying to get my hands and arms or items I'm trying to rinse, under a low faucet. The water stream is generally closer to the back of the inside of the sink. I like that I have a lot of room under my faucet and that it reaches to the middle of the sink.

Yeah, just the looks for the particular faucet that I like. Thanks for the feedback!
