The granite countertops I'm considering for future kitchen plans are 3cm in thickness, it is my understanding they are mounted flat onto the tops of the cabinets, as I presume my existing laminate ones are.
My current backsplash area is prepped and ready for tile.
Can I go ahead and tile the backsplash accounting for enough room for the future countertops/caulking so that my newly installed drywall is protected from grease/water/stains?
The countertop installers acted like this isn't as uncommon as I thought it'd be. They said occasionally they can use 2cm countertops or cut a bit of the tiling off if need-be.
