Bathroom backsplashes can make a big difference in the feel of your home. Installing a bathroom backsplash behind your sink or tub faucet can create a beautiful and practical addition to your décor. It will help water bead on the wall instead of getting absorbed. Common types of bathroom backsplash are made from granite, brick, glass orceramic tiles, composite materials or painted decorative wall coverings. Tiles are a popular and extremely durable bathroom backsplash material. A bathroom tile backsplash repels splashing water from the sink, resists mildew and might be installed in an innumerable amount of styles and colors. The most common tile for a backsplash bathroom update is ceramic tile, which comes in a multitude of shapes and styles: tiny geometric mosaic tiles, small hexagonal tiles, rectangular “subway” styles, small square terra-cotta styles and large 12-inch (30.5-cm) tiles.
Glazed tiles are best for the bathroom backsplash. These tiles will resist water and are easy to clean and maintain. A granite bathroom backsplash of exotic granite tiles exudes a sophisticated, glossy sheen. Granite is manufactured in a variety of colors and styles but can be expensive and requires skilled installation. Composite granite and composite marble tiles are less expensive and look very similar to original granite.
