I Am redoing my dressing table with drawers. It will have a marble top. Does it need a backsplash? There is no sink.

It does not need a backsplash, but you can add one if you want.

Thank you. I will probably install a narrow border/ backsplash about 2 inches so the wall does get stained while wiping/cleaning the top. Your thoughts!?

Think about installing the backslash with a unique design to it instead of the typical straight one.

Those are beautiful details on both of those splashes, and they will make the difference between fine and splendid!

Very nice, but I'm looking for something more modern/transitional style for a built in dressing cabinet tnot a sink splash. Thanks!

For a more contemporary look, I would not spend the money on a backsplash. Instead I would have a framed mirror, flanked by contemporary vertical sconces, either on the same wall as the mirror or on the flanking walls. I am in the middle of remodeling our powder room, using a Z Gallerie 32 x 48" Reflection mirror and two George Kovacs sconces, the double kind with white linen rectangular shades.

And, hey, I'm using a colorful graffiti wallpaper in the room! Plus I'm having an automotive painter paint my bombe chest that houses the sink. It will be a high gloss color, yet to be determined.

I do understand that you have no sink but you did say that you were considering a backsplash for your built-in vanity and I was just suggesting that you consider an unusual shape. I'm sure that it will be lovely. Good Luck!
