Vanity backsplash - how much?
I am meeting with a contractor next week to discuss redoing my hall bath. I've got a general idea of the elements and finishes I want, although I am trying to remain as open and flexible as possible, e.g., counter material. There will be plenty of decisions to be made and I'd like to have some basic questions answered as much in advance as possible.
Here's a pic of my current vanity. I plan to replace it with one the same size; I will stay with one sink. The current counter is cultured marble and so is the backsplash. That's one material that won't be making a return visit. :)
I think I want to keep a 4" backsplash, either in the counter material or a run of tile. I'm flexible. I really don't want the backsplash to go any higher than that.
Finally my question: Do I need the backsplash on the shorter wall? With one sink in the middle, it doesn't get wet over there. Since the vanity will be snug into that corner, would there possibly be wall unevenness or gaps that might need to be covered?
