Tub and shower surrounds play a big role not only in the look of your bathroom space, but in its function as well. These surrounds protect your walls from any water splashing on them. Not only are tub and shower surrounds responsible for protecting your walls, sink splashes are as well. These areas of your bathroom allow you to showcase your creativity while piecing together the materials to protect your walls. When designing your bath surrounds and sink splashes, take into consideration the tile you are choosing, the size of the tile, the color of the tile, and the pattern of the design that you desire.
