I have put up my wainscoat back splash, my question is this, based on the pic of my kitchen peninsula, do I continue the backsplash to the end of the peninsula? keeping in mind that if so, it would end partially under my wall pantry which does not have a lower cabinet. Would that look weird? Or should I stop the back splash where it is currently under the regular kitchen cabinet? I need opinions please, thank you in advance.This message has been edited.

How about a third option? Since the pantry shelving goes to the perpendicular wall why not take the wainscotting to the end of the open shelves and down to the floor?
If you don't opt for that, I think I'd leave it as is. I'm not a designer, and don't play one on TV.
I pretty much agree with Sparky.
However that dark stain on the wainscoat wood is going to soak up a lot of reflected light. I'd make sure you have enough task lighting in the kitchen area to compensate.
Thats a great suggestion... I will consider it, thank you
If you don't already have it add some under cabinet lighting between the sink and the pantry. Go for LED lights, the bulbs last forever and it uses very little power.
Any advice given here is general in nature and is not necessarily valid for your given area. If in doubt check with your local codes enforcement department for what is required when doing electrical, plumbing or structural work on your house. Permits may or may not be required in your area and home owners may not be able to DIY some tasks. I have no way of knowing if you have the skills needed to complete the tasks you are asking about, when in doubt seek professional assistance.
I am not an employee of HGTV, nor is anyone else that posts here.
My advice may be worth exactly what you pay me for it. :-) For the record I did not stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
Thanks Sparky. I am considering LED lighting. I recently watched a DIY episode where the host used LED tape lighting. I am itching to try it!!
LED's are the BEST!
The prices on the bulbs are gradually coming down, and we have been changing out many of our light fixture bulbs with LED bulbs. Amazing amount of light for the small amount of energy used, and luckily they are easily dimmed with a standard dimming switch!
Since a backsplash is meant to protect the wall from food preparation and a bar isn't really used that way, I'd end it where you have in the photo.
