How important to WAIT until granite in, b4 deciding backsplash?

13 years ago

I notice that many people decide on their backsplash after nearly everything else has been installed. My contractor is requesting I pick out backsplash tiles and determine design behind the cooktop now...long before granite, cabs, etc. in! I think a good part of the reason is efficiency (eg, not have tile guy, who is doing bathroom work, coming multiple times). So I imagine there will be a 'cost' associated with my requesting to delay deciding until key components are installed.

Worth the probable extra charges?? Or just make a decision based on what I think would look best given the cabinets and granite that have been ordered.

THANKS for your experience & advice.
