Unusual question

I am preparing to replace an old 4x4 single row tile kitchen backsplash with a full to cabinet height 4x12 subway tile backsplash. Here’s my dilemma. I have to cabinets that house the refrigerator and the wall oven and when the original tile was set they continued the single row out along the cabinet wall, covering the wood. We’ve just installed granite countertops and don’t know how to deal with that 4” row of damaged wood. Do I put and single row of 4x22 along the cabinet wall to just cover the damaged area or do I tile up the 18” that the new backsplash will be. Either option seems wrong, but there is too much damage to the wood to try and refinish that strip and be able to get it to match. See photos. Would appreciate any advice I can get.[ATTACH]

Welcome to the forum, Andrea.

Two, maybe three options here.

1. Tile part or all of the cabinet face. Not ideal, and not really the correct substrate for tile.

2. Refinish the cabinet, but I can't see how much cabinet we're talking about.

3. Have a cabinet make fix you up with a skin for that cabinet with something to finish off the exposed edge. I'm not sure if that's feasible, but I bet if you show the picture to a cabinet maker he can tell you what's possible.

Go the easy route. 1 row of tile on the wood or enough to cover damage.

To me, it would look odd to have tile on the back wall/splash and granite on the sides. I would tile the back wall all the way up and 1 row on the sides. Possibly 1 row with a row of bullnose or pencil rail on the sides. Something to hide the edge of the tile.
