The best solutions for an aesthetic and functional bathroom splashback

We already know the decorative power of the kitchen splashback. This element, both functional and aesthetic, which protects the walls against splashing water and dirt can also be found in the bathroom to give it a certain visual interest. Available in a wide variety of materials, the bathroom splashback easily matches any decor style. In tiles, glass or mosaic, it brings a real decorative touch. Discover our best solutions for transforming the space around the sink, bathtub or shower.

As a general rule, the height of the credenza should be at least 10 cm for it to perform its protective function. And yet its pose is not at all compulsory. The splashback is very often chosen for its purely aesthetic interest, which makes it spread over a larger area or even cover the entire wall. The choice of configuration therefore depends on the desired aesthetic effect.

Configuration types

Most often the splashback is in the form of one or more rows of tiles at the level of the basin or washbasin. But it’s not uncommon to see the credenza spanning the entire wall as well. Easier to maintain than paint, integral wallcovering has the advantage of playing the role of a real accent wall. In addition, this type of configuration has the power to visually enlarge the space. For a splashback that blends in with its surroundings, go for a washstand with an integrated splashback or simply made from the same material. In laminated wood, solid surface, quartz or natural stone, the splashback or backsplash matches the vanity top for a harmonious effect.

What material for my bathroom splashback ?

  • Natural stone bathroom splashback. Natural stone, and more particularly travertine, brings a note of warmth to the bathroom. Installed as a splashback, this noble material guarantees you an atmosphere that is both authentic and elegant. However, natural stone is expensive to buy and difficult to maintain. For those who want the aesthetics of stone in their bathroom but at a lower price, imitation stone tiles are a great alternative.
  • Mosaic credenza. The small fragments, called tesserae that make up the mosaic come in a multitude of materials. Ceramic, molten glass, stone … They play on finishes and colors to bring a touch of originality to the bathroom. Thus, a mosaic of small hexagonal tiles will add a nice modern graphic touch..
  • The glass splashback. Economical and easy to clean. Its shiny appearance brings a resolutely contemporary touch to the bathroom. It is most often a decorative wall panel that is placed on the walls around the bathtub, in the shower.
  • The tiled splashback is an unbeatable classic thanks to its wide range of colors and styles. This is the type of splashback that allows the greatest freedom in decorative styles.
  • Finally, for those who want to revamp the bathroom splashback without doing major work, there are economical and easy-to-install alternatives. Adhesive tiles with chevron or mosaic patterns, imitation cement tiles stickers, all of them give a new lease of life to the damp room.
