I there, I think it looks great!! could you cut a piece on an angle and place it next to the counter, I think that may tie it in better, and you wouldn’t have to do the wall again!

Good luck!!

No joke, DH and I were house hunting yesterday and saw a home with a brand new kitchen that had the same issue with the backsplash sticking out to be the same length as the cabinet but didn’t match with the countertop. We stared at it for 10 minutes trying to figure out what to do lol. I would shorten it. The OCD in us would forever be bothered by this…

For me it would bother me just as much to have a little bit hanging over or as much as there is now. Could you possibly make the last row’s last tile a longer one to come to the bottom of where the counter top is? I know the gap between the counter and it would be a bit bigger than the other grout lines but it might fill the space.

Honestly, I would bring the line straight up from the edge of the counter to under the cabinets.

yeah, i would cut a triange piece and put it on the bottom, from the counter to the corner of the tile. Just half a tile. Would make it look a little cleaner,

Sunshine23:  Well I had to read your thread to see what a “Backsplash Emergency” was LOL!! I don’t think it looks terrible, but I definitely think it would look better lined up with the countertop. Can’t wait til I can get subway tile!!

I would have it end with the counter top.  Looks ending at the counter would tuck it in right under the side of the cabinet from the picture.

I have seen this a lot more recently – and to me, it totally sticks out when you have the backsplash longer than the cupboards – like this:

4484 50th St S, Fargo, ND 58104

For yours, I agree with other PP’s – just cut an angle going down and it’ll look great!

I would line the tile up with the countertop.

I would honestly do something like this directly under the cabinet so the backsplash was more over the counter itself.

I played with Paint to see what it would look like if you just added more to the bottom:

I like the angle piece at the bottom the best!
