Do you need a backsplash on a bathroom vanity?

A backsplash is needed in almost any space that is categorized as a “wet space” in your home. A wet space is a room that is exposed to water or stains and is tiled in order for easy maintenance. Just like your kitchen, maybe even more so, you would need a backsplash to catch any water droplets or soap stains to avoid mold or bubbles in your plaster walls. Thus, if your bathroom vanity sports a sink or a faucet, you will be better off by protecting your walls against water damage with a backsplash. And why not add a bit of fun to your bathroom anyways?

How to install a bathroom backsplash?

Installing a bathroom backsplash is basically the same as installing a kitchen backsplash. Making sure everything is sealed and caulked is the biggest priority to avoid any water leakage. You should always start by making sure your walls are even and smooth, so your tiles will adhere without a problem. Once you have that covered, you should lay out your design before application to ensure that your design fits exactly the way you imagined onto your wall space. Make sure to account for any outlets and light switches.

Next, mix and apply your adhesive to the wall, some tile types may require you to work in batches or back butter instead of applying the mortar directly to the wall, so make sure to check in with your tile manufacturer for the best installation method. Once the tiles are on the wall, let the tiles set for 24 hours, and then apply your grout lines by feeding the slots with the rubber float at a 45-degree angle as you apply, covering any seams in the application. Scrape away any excess grout, then let it set. Once the grout is hard enough, clean the surface of any leftover grout with a damp sponge. Finally, make sure to caulk any edges of the tiles to seal in the backsplash. And Voila!

Tile Types

The materiality of the tiles is important, but you should also consider what type of tile you are going for. From an Arabesque tile in a traditional bathroom to a sharp subway tile in a contemporary space, you can really go any direction with a white backsplash. You should also keep in mind the size of your tiling. The smaller you go, you more you will be able to create a pattern that reads like one, yet if you have a unique tile shape or texture, going for a larger size will flaunt it better. To keep you from being overwhelmed, we gathered a few inspirations for you to choose from!
