Bathroom Vanity Backsplash or Not?

Having a vanity backsplash in your bathroom is a good idea. The bathroom vanity backsplash would help you protect your bathroom walls from soap stains and water damage.

Most bathroom walls get damaged easily because of the amount of water they take in. In no time, the walls would begin to get moldy and damp, which damages the wall faster than you can imagine. But you can prevent it with a backsplash.

A backsplash in your bathroom would also make cleaning easier. There are tonnes of reasons why you should have a backsplash.

If you’re considering having a bathroom vanity backsplash or not, well, it is advisable to have one.

There are different backsplash ideas you can try out and see which suits your needs most. Take note that most alternatives might not work as efficiently as others.

What are some Ideas that Substitute for Backsplash?

Deciding to have a bathroom vanity backsplash or not is a straightforward decision to make. However, choosing the best type of backsplash you’d like to have is where the problem lies. Here are some DIY ideas that substitute for a backsplash:

High-Quality Glossy Paint

For your bathroom vanity backsplash, you can use a high-quality glossy paint that is water resistant. Using this type of paint is so easy because it doesn’t require much to get it done. Anybody can do it, as long as you know how to rub a brush on a wall.

When you use this type of paint as your backsplash, it makes cleaning easier. Apart from that, the wall doesn’t absorb water like it would have without the paint on the wall.

However, the shortcoming of this backsplash is when water always sits too frequently on the wall. The paint begins to damage, and water starts to penetrate.


Another DIY backsplash idea you can try at home is by using caulk on your wall. Caulk is a material generally known for sealing seams or joints in the various structures. Caulk can be used to fill the lower part of the wall.

However, caulking might be efficient for the moment in dealing with your water damaging problems. Although in caulking, the upper part of the wall is left vulnerable to soap stains and water damage.

On top of it all, there may be seepage through the caulking. So, you shouldn’t expect coating your bathroom vanity backsplash with caulk to last for an extended period. From time to time, you may need to repaint the wall with caulk to keep the bathroom vanity backsplash looking good always.


Tiles, on the other hand, is one of our favorite. It is one of the most effective ways of protecting your wall from soap stains and water damage. Just make sure you seal the edges or seams of the tiles correctly with a tile sealant.

In conclusion, you should have a bathroom vanity backsplash. The reason is that it helps protect your wall from water damage and soap stains. And when getting a bathroom vanity backsplash, we recommend you make use of tiles, as it’s the best.

The last few days here have been sunny, and almost warm. High 50s/low 60s. During my lunch break I’ve been sitting outside (in a light jacket;) to enjoy the sunshine. I didn’t realize how much I have truly MISSED warmer weather! I’m a summer girl at heart, and I can’t wait for the heat! It definitely makes me want to take a beach vacation. But since I don’t have any plans for that anytime soon, I need to bring the beach to ME. Wayfair has some great beach themed products that will bring a piece of that sunshiney beach to you! Keep reading to see my favorite picks from them.I absolutely love virgin piña coladas, so I attempted to make one at home! It was definitely a trial and error process, but I know they’ll keep getting better and better as I make them now 😉 
Ingredients include:frozen pineapple chunkscrushed icecoconut milk or coconut waterheavy whipping cream(what I wish I would have gotten also: pineapple juice)

I first blended some coconut water and frozen pineapple together

Then I added a little bit of whipping cream and crushed ice

Taste test and see if you want to add more of anything (I love a strong pineapple flavor so I added more)

And there you go! It came out a little thicker than I liked, so next time I’m definitely getting some pineapple juice so I can add it to thin it out a bit. The taste was yummy though!! Takes me right back to the beaches in Mexico…

Below are some cute beach inspired products from Wayfair that’ll bring the beach to your home! I love the top left glasses, they remind me of pineapples. And the glasses on the bottom right remind me of sparkling sand. Get me somewhere warm already!


Sometimes in life, it’s okay to be fake. Like when you want to wear fur, but get faux fur instead. Or if you want to wear leather, but you wear pleather instead. I love wearing these two things together, because they are both trends I never EVER would have worn five years ago. Oh, how the times change! Some time my intention is to wear “mickey mouse supreme” as part of a fancy dress/cosplay on a boys weekender however it fits perfectly and is legitimately a nice looking top so I will probably wear it day to day too!
The faux leather detail top from Choies looks great paired with the Turquoise Cleo Fringe Necklace from Urban Peach Boutique! Urban Peach Boutique has some way cute accessories, so make sure to stop by their cute site!
