Black and white is a clean look for a bathroom that can be interpreted any way you like – dial up the white for an effect that’s subtle and fresh, or make it daringly theatrical with brass accents and brave use of ebony paint.
The beauty of a black and white bathroom is more than just the visual impact of monochromatic design – it’s a colour palette that you can pull off in just about any style of home, and it will never date. It’s a failsafe option that’s easy to bring to life in your own individual way, allowing you to amp up the drama without fear of clashing colours. Keep the look classic, or go properly bold with graphic tiles or a lavish splash of dark paint on walls and ceiling – if you dare!
The dynamic contrast of dark grout between glossy white tiles is a clever design device that demonstrates the versatility of this palette, and packs a modern punch. Graphic patterned floor tiles are a bold statement, proving that black and white is anything but boring – pair these with a wall-mounted vanity for full visual effect. The clean lines and minimalist design of the vanity unit
make room for the drama, and a bold, black freestanding bath brings just that. Introducing luxe brass accents through tapware
adds warmth and glamour to the room, while indoor plants
breath life and a little sanctuary style.
Introducing shades of grey softens the starkness, while still colouring between the lines of a monochrome palette. Try adding subtle textured mosaic tiles
or Moroccan-inspired patterned flooring in shades of grey. Channel the magic of monochrome into fixtures and fittings like matt black tapware, towel rails
or a framed mirror
