NY Good Questions: What Type of Backsplash Should I Get?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Dear AT,

We are almost done with our kitchen renovation and would like AT reader suggestions on what we should do with the backsplash.

As you can see in the picture we have the backsplash installed on the back wall but there is a wall on the right which is currently painted.

Should we tile that too? Should the tile reach the door frame or stop at the countertop?…

(Note: Include a pic of your problem and your question gets posted first.

Email questions and pics with QUESTIONS in subject line to:


If no tile, then should we put in a slab of caesarstone along the edge like we have in the other picture?

But then do we have to do that on both sides (along the left edge bordering the cabinet) to maintain symmetry?

Thanks! Vidula
