To clear things up: I am not referring to a full backsplash, just the typical 4-6" granite backsplash that extends from the counter.
I personally never liked it, but I do want to do things that will have a positive effect on resale.
The townhouses in this complex all have it by default.
I do plan on doing tile eventually as a backsplash on half of the counters. The other half does not have cabinets above it, just wall and a window, so it'll remain just painted wall.
What do you all think?
