If you have a striking piece of stone this is a great way to show it off. You definitely get the WOW factor when you see a beautiful slab of stone vertically in the kitchen.
It is generally more expensive than a tile backsplash (depending on the price of the tile).
Full Height Backsplashes are great for cleaning too....no grout lines!
Here are five gorgeous kitchens with Full Height Backsplashes...
This first kitchen has Soapstone countertops and a Soapstone sink. The beauty of the Soapstone really shines though in the large splash piece behind the range.

The cabinets are clad in hammered silver. Isn't it unique and beautiful? The floor, countertops and full height backsplash are Calacatta marble.

Minimal upper cabinets and a unique hood allow the Calacatta marble to shine in this beautiful modern kitchen.

This last kitchen used the same granite on the island and two large pieces behind the range and the sink. They used tile for the backsplash everywhere else. The perimeter countertops are stainless steel. Great way to mix materials.
