One if the recent decisions I made was to have no backsplash around our sinks. We have a six inche backsplash with a pencil trim made of marble going around the tub. I had originally planned to have the same thing around our sinks. But after some difficulty making it look right around the tub I decided to nix the ones around the sinks. There are some very awkward angles in our bathroom and I prefer not to make them stand out even more with awkward tiling. I just really strived for clean lines in the reno so I killed the ones around the sink.
The only thing is, my mother and several other people almost recoiled in horror upon hearing this news. Reasoning with me that the wall would get ruined and wet. But I disagree. It's a bathroom sink, not a kitchen sink. I don't do anything splashy in my bathroom sink. I don't even wash my face there, I do it in the shower. Plus I thought that not having a back splash would make it look more modern. It would make the sink appear more like a piece of furniture than a sink.
Then I began to search for images. It was hard. If there wasn't a trued back splash then the wall behind the sink was tiled. I began to feel anxious. I managed to find a few examples however...
So my question to you is, am I wrong?
