I am ready to install a granite countertop. Should I include a 4 inch backsplash or go with tile? Some say the granite backsplash is outdated.
I dont think you can go wrong with either granite or tile as the backsplash. And, I would also not get too caught up on what's trendy in this respect. The one thing you should be prepared for is maintenance — granite is NOT maintenance free. The finishes can stain and need to be repolished professionally every few years.
