Side splash or not? Opinions please...
I have been wrestling with "to side splash or not" for several days now and really just wanted to hear advice from others. I don't feel I have a good eye for these things...
I have attached a picture of my current vanity.
The mosaic tile I will use is this:
I have narrowed it down to 3 options:
1. 7.5 inch backsplash only (no side splash). I picked 7.5 inches because that height just clears the top of the faucet.
2. ~5 inch backsplash and side splash.
3. ~11 inch backsplash and side splash.
Due to location of outlet on the side wall I can either tile up to outlet or completely cover outlet.
If I don't do a side splash, I will have to use caulking to seal the gap on the side wall.
Please, suggestions are appreciated. I have a feeling that it probably doesn't matter too much either or, but just wanted some opinions. In the beginning, I was deadset on having the backsplash clear the height of the faucet (option 1), because I think it looks wierd if the height of the backsplash is lower than the top of the faucet. I then started thinking about a side splash but the outlet gets in the way. If I go option 2, I was thinking to get a wide frame mirror so that the bottom of the mirror is still above the faucet.
This is driving me nuts!! Help please! Pictures would be great too!
