chic bathtub backsplashes to stand out cover

A bathtub is a part of the wall or all the walls by the tub covered with some material, and it used to be a very common feature in bathroom design and not it’s making a huge comeback. This is a great idea for many reasons: it’s a creative feature that helps to highlight the bathtub, make it stand out in the bathroom – it’s great for those who love having a bath. It also has some practical use: the covered wall or walls are protected from foam and water splashes, which is essential for such wall covers as wallpaper, wood and other not very water-resistant ones. Let’s have a look at some ideas to rock this unique decor feature in your space.

Bathtub Niches With Backsplashes

Some bathrooms feature comfortable niches for bathtubs or showers and making a backsplash in such a niche you usually cover all the three walls. Such a backsplash allows to protect the walls and maybe a window from splashes, and you can go for wallpaper or chalkboard over the tub. Clad the backsplash with matching tiles similar to those that are used in the whole space and clad the bathtub, too. Another idea is to rock something very bold and different, and you may also go for tiles only on the backsplash covering the rest of the walls with wood or something else. Try various contrasting materials for the backsplash, for example, marble, stone or even wood-looking tiles.

Bathtubs With Backsplashes

In case you don’t have a niche, you needn’t cover much with your backsplash. Cover only one wall, by which your bathtub is standing, and don’t make it too large – just for splashes. The idea is actually the same: you may go for matching or contrasting looks with your backsplash, marble, tiles and stone can be super different or the same as on the floor, for example, this way you’ll make your bathroom look bigger. For a more unified look, you may cover the bathtub with the same. Get inspired and save your walls!
