What's The Best Backsplash For Granite?

A granite backsplash can put the finishing touch on your granite countertops.


Not only does the backsplash hide the transition line of the wall and the counter, but it offers protection from liquids getting to the wall as well.


Although a 4 inch tall strip of granite kitchen backsplash set on top of your  counters is common practice, other splash choices are available.


Here are the latest granite splash ideas and why you may need a full height granite backsplash.

Tile can be ceramic or natural stone. Granite tile backsplash usually covers the entire space between the counter and the cabinets.


Sometimes tile is used along with granite, with the tile starting just above the 4 inch high strip of granite. This can also get expensive.


Stainless steel is another material found on backsplashes. It's usually located behind a cooking surface for protecting the wall from grease splatter.


Backsplash for granite counters serves a functional role, but your choice of material for the splash is more an issue of aesthetics than anything else. A backsplash made from granite in your kitchen or bath can be both functional and visually appealing.

If you're staying with a granite splash, you can vary the height of it.


Full height granite splash that covers all the space between the countertops and the bottom of the cabinets, can have a dramatic impact on your kitchen.


Keep in mind, full height backsplash can add a lot of cost because it increases the square footage of stone in your project.


You can also introduce other materials that work well as backsplash and compliment marble and granite countertops. Tile backsplash is often used with stone countertops.
