Backsplash on vanity . . . yes or no???
July 27, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Is there a nice way to have a blacksplash on a vanity top? It will be open on both sides so the backsplash will only be on the back. Is this a better option than not having a backsplash at all? Our wall will be tiled behind the vanity. Thanks!!!

Pictures would help a lot .... not sure without seeing your space.

Please post Pictures!!! I would just say that if the wall behind vanity is tiled I like to carry that same tile over the top of the vanity for a splash.

Thanks for the comment. Our contractors are gutting the whole bathroom next week. I will be ordering a vanity top soon. The tile on the wall will go up 4'. The vanity will be about 34" tall. I've seen tops with and w/o backsplashes. Not sure from a practical standpoint which will work better and from a design standpoint which will look nicer.

Dancetap, depends on style of room, style of vanity & personal choice. I don't often use backsplashes in bathrooms.

Practically, not of opinion backsplash makes a big difference. Design wise - without pictures vanity, tile you are using & paint colour, hard for us to say.....
