Where do I stop when tiling a backsplash when there are no cabinets above? The cabinets are on one wall and butt up to an adjacent wall. That wall continues to the sink and beyond. Currently there is a 6" backsplash that was done around the counter. The installer cut the trim on one side of the picture window and tiled over it on the other side. The upper cabinets do not turn a corner so there is blank wall next to the sink. This is a wet area. I really want this to look professional. This is partially a design question too. Drawing a mental picture: U shaped kitchen, on the left are upper cabinets, in front there are no cabinets and a huge window (70"w x 45" h), on the left are more upper cabinets.
