When you sit down with your USAKITCHEN.COM kitchen designer, one of the decisions you’ll consider is which type of kitchen backsplash to install in your dream kitchen: standard or full? granite, quartz or tile? After looking through pictures of our own customer kitchens, we’ve found that full granite – quartz backsplash or tile appear to be more popular than standard backsplashes.
A standard kitchen backsplash measures 4 inches from the countertop surface and it’s usually made from a 4-inch high strip of whatever slab material you choose (quartz, granite). A full backsplash continues up the wall as high as you like, typically to the bottom of the upper-cabinet frame.
A full kitchen backsplash has a very clean look and creates a uniform transition from cabinet to cabinet and everything (literally) in between. Homeowners often use full backsplashes to add eye-catching pop or accent to their kitchen space, using fancy tile work or bold accent colors that add depth and dimension to the finished product.
Bottom line: It’s your own style and preference that should drive whether or not your kitchen boasts a standard or full backsplash..
