AS you know not all walls are straight. Add a back splash. Not only does a back splash keep water & fluids away from the wall. They also hide the irregularities. A back splash for countertops are normally 1”x3”. But to follow a crooked wall, try a 1/2”x3” strip to follow the wall to hide the gaps, then add another 1/2”x3” strip in front of it for the thickness, and caulk , these will bend easier than using a 1”x3” back splash…or… You could cut and glue filler strips for the backwall and then caulk. I’d put in the back splash then put the tiles above it. If you talk to your customer, notify them that the walls not straight, I’m sure they’ll agree to use a back splash.
