When we moved to our home, there was a wonderful granite countertop already installed in our kitchen. Its primarily hunter green with swirls of brown and gold with specks of cranberry red. We also had 4" back and side trims of the game granite.
We finally decided to install a backsplash (with no side splash) and pulled out the back and side trims. The back of the granite was installed flush against the back but the sides have a gap of 1/2"!!! Hence the dilemma. Obviously we need the 4" trim or caulking on the sides
The design of the new back splash (1/2" square desert cream travertine installed diagonally with a border/deco listello running through about 4" above the lower end) does not allow us to install the 4" granite trim on the backsplash.
So the question is,
1. Should we just caulk the sides and live with it?
2. Should we install the 4" green granite back on the sides with the cream on the back?
3. Should we install a 4" trim of the same desert cream we are using on the back splash?
Since we are not professionals, and this is the first time we are doing this, I would really appreciate all opinions.
