Granite Back Splash: Trend?

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  Some say the granite backsplash is outdated.

The Money Pit Answer

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.
