Find Out What's So Smart About The Material Of The Week: Smart Tiles
Is there a seam between the 'lip' and the surface of the countertop? If there is, then the 'lip' can be removed. If not, you may be able to build the wall out but that would be a lot of work because outlets and switches would have to be bumped out, as well as any trim or framing around a window, if there is one. Another idea is to build a new flat countertop with plywood and laminate. I hope this helps!
You really cannot remove the lip backsplash and have it look good. It's to thick for tile to hide. Just tile above it.
