Can a ceiling height tile backsplash only be in an alcove?
We're redoing our bathroom and trying to come up with a few ideas for tiling. I love the look of the full tile backsplash right to the ceiling, but I'm wondering if it would be possible to do with our layout. The vanity with countertop is 72" wide and sits against 2 walls, not 3. Just up against an exterior wall on the left hand side.
Is there a written rule that says a counter to ceiling tile backsplash can only be used in an alcove? I don't like the idea of tiling the entire wall behind the bathroom door, it seems like a waste of money for something you'll almost never see. Can the wall tile just cover the 72" vanity or is that a huge no-no?
