5 Bold Backsplash Ideas For Bathroom Sinks

If you’re looking for backsplash ideas for bathroom sinks, you have come to the right place. Now, you could go browsing the internet aimlessly, but that only makes it harder to make a decision. We’re here to help, bringing you five designs that make it an easy place to start your research.

Patterned Tiles

The first one is an example of patterned tiles. You can see that the set of tiles are nicely placed between the sink and the mirror on top of it. The placement is not just for aesthetic reasons but also because it is the one place where the splash is likely to be the most, especially if you are into throwing a handful of water on your face after a rough day.

Black Backsplash

It’s a bit of a tongue-twister, but watching it in your bathroom is going to give you the same amount of joy, if not more. This one is for those who want a classy look and love the color black. It also does not take up too much space, nothing more than it needs to anyway.

The key to making this work is to have the other elements around it, like the mirror and the vessel of the sink large. This creates a beautiful contrast in the space.

Mosaic Backsplash

Honestly, this one never goes out of style. There is something really appealing about its lack of drama. Those of you who like to keep their backsplashes utilitarian but elegant will love this.

There are no bright colors on the tile itself, but you can work around the area if you want a little pop, or you can keep it black and white too. In the picture, you will notice that the layout itself is vertical, and the tiles have a glazed finish. There’s a nice little ripple effect, but it doesn’t distract from the bigger picture.

Plain White Backsplash

What is incredible about this picture is that it was taken at a cabin that was in a state of complete decay and was brought back to life through renovation by interior designer Joanna Gaines. It follows the rules of the contemporary style of interior design, which is marked by the neutral colors you see in the picture. And plain white tiles are just the right fit here.

Fish Scale Tiles

Last but most definitely not least, if you wanted to give your backsplash some wings, this might just be the one for you. This one is the specialty of French decorator Cecile Humbert, and the tiles you are looking at are Moroccan zellige which are a vanity element in a bathroom that is otherwise dominated by the color white. They are designed after fish scales and come in shades of green and grey.
