I just got a new vanity with a counter top that I am having a hard time finding splashes for. It's a very nice counter top as is and looks really good just nestled in the corner without any splash at all. I'd really like to just keep it as is.
I guess what I really want to know is what is the point of a splash? Is it to keep water from going down behind the vanity? There's caulk to prevent that. Is it to keep water from damaging the drywall around the sink? If so, aren't there waterproofing treatments that I could apply to the wall around the sink to keep such damage from occurring?
What are my options here as far as not using a splash and what are the implications of not using them?
