Just a couple things to think about:
1) the "backsplash" section matching the countertop isn't really "in" anymore, but if you like it, you like it. Its a personal preference.

Just wanted to update this thread. Went the Kerdifix route. "Installed" the hooks Friday and they seem pretty solid. Hope they stay that way. Will update this if they fall off :tup2:

I'd go with cut edge against factory edge. I just finished up a subway tile shower and had similar issues. Once it was all grouted, you can't really tell the difference. Or at least someone other...
