Bathroom Vanity Backsplash Ideas

We do not sell backsplashes as a stand alone item.

Have you noticed that all of our bathroom vanities are listed as no backsplash included, though some of the images of our vanities clearly shows a backsplash?

We want to provide clarification and alternatives.

When we first started in 2005, many of the manufacturers were offering backsplashes; some were attached, some not. Though every attempt was made to properly package the backsplash for shipping, we (along with many retailers) were experiencing higher than average damage rates to them.  When we would ship out a new backsplash, it was nearly impossible that it would arrive intact. And I promise you, we tried everything. A long, narrow piece of stone just doesn’t mix well with any of the freight carriers.

Because this inevitably ended in a poor experience for our clients, and us, the manufacturers themselves stopped offering backsplashes as an option.  We currently offer a limited selection of vanities with a backsplash, but if it is damaged, we will not replace it as it’s nearly impossible to do so.

Here’s the good news: you’ve got options. Often times, opting for a vanity without a backsplash leads to a more individual, unique design. Simply speaking, your bathroom isn’t going to look like anyone else’s with the same vanity installed.

Here are a few ideas for creating a backsplash to fit with your bathroom project.

Glass Tile: Use it by itself or carry it up the entire wall


Floor to Midwall Tile: Carry the floor tile to

mid-wall and border with the same or an accent tile.


Stone Tile: in the same manner that glass tile is applied,

install stone tile alone as a backsplash


Stonewall: Higher cost/square foot, but certainly makes a statement.


Subway Tile is always en vogue. Simple and streamlined, it can be modernized or made traditional, depending on your style.

If you prefer matching stone, call a local stone installation company.  Many of these places will have remnants or fall offs that you can get in the same (similar) stone type.
