Need advice on height of kitchen sideways outlets in full height backs

Our project will have Cambria Portrush (white with blue veins & gold flecks) kitchen countertops with full height backsplash (from countertop to bottom of upper cabinets).

Wall outlets above the countertop will be installed sideways. What is the best and most appropriate distance from the countertop to the bottom of the outlet plate so as to maximize the backsplash design without having the outlet to close to the countertop for proper functionality / outlet usage & as well as a balanced look.

Thank you,
