It is common for one’s kitchen to have a 6-inch backsplash with a full backsplash. When buying a new house, it is normal that your new kitchen will be included backsplash of your choice in either 6 inches or upgrade to the full-size backsplash.


The main objective of the backsplash in your bathroom is to protect your wall from the water. You don’t want water getting into the wall because it can cause mold infestation. It is also common to equip your wall with backsplash behind the sink to block the water spills. The common question is how tall to make the backsplash behind your bathroom vanity, sink, or bathtub? The minimum height is 4 inches tall. That’s the starting height that most contractors will recommend. It’s not too tall, and it will provide sufficient protection for your walls against moisture. And as a bonus, it is also as a visual piece that adds aesthetic value to your bathroom; it’s stunning, it’s beautiful, it’s decorative.

Backsplashes are very much subjective. There’s no right or wrong answer when it comes to backsplashes. However, as a general rule, it is advisable to always have a contrast; at least two or three shades of difference for the countertops. Another thing to consider when incorporating a backsplash in your design is the granite top. It is essential that your new backsplash will match with your granite to continue the visual flow of the room. When shopping for the backsplash, it is recommended that you put it next to the granite so you will have a good idea of how the final output will look like.
