A backsplash, as the name suggests, is something in the back that lets water splash against it. It’s a terrific way to spice up bathroom/kitchen décor. If you would like to do only a little remodeling, then do just a backsplash. If you do a total remodeling, then the backsplash can be as major or as minor a part of the décor as you wish.
Here is a bathroom remodeling project that we are working on in Seattle. It’s almost finished! The new backsplash is already installed on the wall, from the sink all the way to the ceiling, illuminated by the LED lighting on the mirror. Here again, you can have as much or as little backsplash as you desire.
The backsplash in the AFTER photo above is composed of various shades of warm grays to coordinate with the bathtub/shower tiled walls. It is made of small, narrow, rectangular staggered tiles of different sizes that come on 12” x 12” sheets. Depending on the design, that kind of tile can be installed horizontally or vertically. Made of glass, the tile has a sheen to it.
A very different, lovely backsplash tile is a metallic type. We have used this one in a kitchen remodel, where it beautifully set off a glass jar of limes, giving a distinctive, contrasting, rustic look:
A golden backsplash can even give you a dramatic, golden bathroom! This wonderful photo shows the lengths to which you can go in remodeling:
