The walls behind the bathroom sink take a lot of abuse from water, soap and toothpaste splatters. Adding a tile backsplash helps protect the wall from water damage and also makes it a lot easier to clean. Besides the utilitarian benefits of adding a tile backsplash there is also the benefit of adding value to your bathroom. Wall tiles in bathrooms don't should not be just confined to the sink area.
