Tiling kitchen backsplash
Hello! We are using 12x12 granite tiles with 1/16th spacers for our kitchen backsplash and I just have a few questions. If walking into the the kitchen, the back wall is 124 inches long, the wall to left of this one is 56 inches and the one to the right of this is 36 inches (to the end of where the old backsplash was but 25.5 to the end of the counter). My questions are:
1)Should we start on the back wall from the far left, using a full tile and then use a partial tile on the far end of the wall (which will end up being fairly tiny) or, should we start at the centre point of the back wall, somewhere around the 62 inch mark and end up with two tiny tiles on either end?
2)On the two side walls, should the tile be a full tile minus the tiny amount on the back wall so as to give the impression of a wrapped around full tile or, should we just start off again with a full tile?
3)My stove is placed at the end of the counter and has drywall right next to it. The previous backsplash was carried right around from the back wall and went past the stove by about 12 inches. If we do the same, it will at least hide the damaged drywall (caused by removing the old backsplash). If we don't, we could tile to the end of the counter but will have to fix up the wall. Not sure which will look better.
