Bathroom sink backsplash ideas?
 
Hey everyone,

I recently remodeled our bathroom and I left the backsplash just drywall...now it's time to put something there. Here is a pic, any ideas? I don't have too much room between the sink and the mirror.

I think you can buy solid surface (like corian) backsplashes at the big box lumber stores in the section where they sell one piece vanity tops.

I would go with a white subway tile. I think if you go with a solid piece you will lose the look of a backslash and it will look dull

Looks like you got semigloss paint on there. That will stand up to the occasional splash. Looks right the way it is.

small glass mosaic tile would be my suggestion

Thx everyone for the replies. I actually picked up some subway tile from my sister for free so maybe I'll go that route.

Small glass tile would be my suggestion too, if something really must be done as I think that paint will handle the occasional splash just fine - although I think that sink shape lends to more than necessary splashes. PS. Where did you get that sink and at what price? The closest one I could find is this bathroom sink but it doesn't quite have the shape of your and the hole is not at the center like yours. Do you have a link of where I can find it online? Thanks for the help.

mfox11,
I bought the vanity top at Lowes for $160, here's the link:
