Pretty as a Picture Frame: 5 Bathroom Backsplash Ideas

From on February 16, 2010 in Bathroom Remodel

As unappealing as it may be, a bathroom needs a backsplash just as much as a kitchen does (think toothpaste splatters and hairspray messes). Sure, a bathroom mirror works well, but HGTV’s got some neat ideas for bathroom backsplashes, and we’re always on the lookout for new twists on the same-old, same-old. bathroom backsplash painted#1 - Here, the wall behind the sink gets a coat of differently colored paint, which is then shielded by glass for an easy-to-clean surface. The light colors, shiny surfaces and simple hardware create a spa-like atmosphere. bathroom backsplash tile mosaic#2 - This tiny space has huge impact, defying water stains with a beautiful wrap-around, ceiling-height tile mosaic in dramatic dark tones. bathroom backsplash stone pebbles#3 - How apropos to use resin-encased pebbles around the basin. The designer streamlined the look by extending the pebbles to the wall behind it as well. bathroom backsplash tile#4 - This look takes the backsplash even farther by doing up an entire wall with pastel and metal-colored tiles… bathroom backsplash mirror#5 - … while this bath goes minimalist with just a tiled trim around the mirror for a pretty-as-a-picture framed effect. From travertine to glass, you can use an array of materials in small quantities or big formats to create a functional backsplash that gets lots of style points. Via HGTV
