This is the second of three jobs I have completed for fraternity brothers. This brother had his original laminate countertops removed and a shiny new granite one installed. Laminate countertops are a 1/4″ thicker than granite. If there is a backsplash involved you will see the gap between the tile and countertop. And that is what happened here. I devised a solution by adding decorative 3/4″ tall tile in front of the tile. This saved the original tile backsplash and added a little flair to the kitchen.
