Can I put freestanding vanity against wall?
Leave it as a freestanding vanity, it will look fine against the wall. It’s meant to look like furniture and if you alter it to fit flush against the wall it will not only lose the look of a freestanding chest, but look odd and lop-sided to boot.
Does a freestanding vanity need a backsplash?
Unless you have a pedestal sink that doesn’t rest against the wall, you do need a backsplash for your bathroom vanity. The reason is practical: a bathroom backsplash protects the wall behind the sink from rot, mold and mildew. Beyond that, a backsplash can provide a lot of design appeal.
Should bathroom vanity be flush with wall?
Make sure the wall is straight and there are no gaps between the wall and vanity. Check to make sure the vanity top is level and flush to the wall. If your vanity does not come with adjustable legs, use shims under the base until vanity is level on each side.
How do you fix a gap between a wall and vanity?

Do you need a splashback behind a bathroom sink?
No, you don’t need a splashback behind your sink, but it can be a smart idea to include it in your bathroom design. The splashback serves to catch any spray from the tap as you wash your hands or brush your teeth. It protects the wallboard from being damaged by water.
How much space should be between vanity and wall?
NKBA designers recommend a 30″ clearance between the front edge of a fixture, such as a vanity or toilet, and any other fixture or wall. The building code allows for a minimum of 21″. The bathroom lavatory, or sink, should be placed far enough from a wall or shower wall that it’s comfortable to use and easy to clean.
