Say hello to your new favourite bathroom: The Black Bathroom design.
Black has always been a scary, avoid at all costs colour up until late 2018. Now when you scroll through the dreamy bathrooms of Instagram it’s all you see. It’s the perfect scandi design. Simple, striking and doesn’t have to be scary. Here’s all the reasons why you need a black bathroom…
Why not add black bathroom fixtures?
We all know the saying ‘go big or go home?’ – apply this when revamping your bathroom. If you have already chosen black as your primary bathroom colour or, decided to make a statement with black bathroom fixtures, we have some great tips on how to use this daring colour without going OTT.
You can’t deny that this black bathroom doesn’t scream luxury, elegance, dreamy and 100 other words that basically mean, it’s stunning. Imagine for a second that you took away all the black features. Have you done that? – yes, it would still look great but not half as striking without black fixtures. Our point is that you can create a whole different look by featuring black fixtures into the design of your bathroom. Simple features will give your bathroom a sophisticated feel. From Black shower doors to black taps down to the smaller accessories such as black towel rings.
Alternatively, you can give a traditional bathroom design, a modern twist with black fittings. Inspired by this new trend, Milano has introduced its Elizabeth range, which combines traditional bath and basin fittings with black features. This range has been made with traditionalists in mind.
If you’re looking to renovate or revamp and you need a black bathroom in your life, then we are here to ease the stress. You can achieve the same dreamy bathroom with our range of black bathroom products we have listed below….
Try a black feature wall?
If you’re not really feeling black bathroom features, there are plenty of other ways you can include black into your bathroom design. By introducing a feature wall, you’re creating a bathroom that will make an impact. Add a lick of paint to a wall of your choice and say hello to a brand-new looking bathroom! It’s easy, affordable and reversible if you change our mind. Make sure you don’t lose the size of your room with too much black. As we all know, darker tones can be known to make a room look smaller. Avoid this by simply adding large mirrors that will reflect light around the room! – mirrors will create the illusion of space and add extra detail to your bathroom.

Include black tiles for texture?
Tiles are available in just about every shape, size and colour you can think of. Black tiles can look super classy when combined with the right colours. Mixing black tiles with gold fixtures will leave your bathroom looking modern, fresh and unique. We are seeing more and more white/black grout tiled bathroom designs, and yet again, we have fallen head over heels for this look.
Black grout works exceptionally well when matched with a black featured bathroom. Whereas, white grout used with black tiles is more of a dramatic design (but who doesn’t love a bit of daring décor). Stone tile is a great choice for bathroom floors and walls. When properly maintained, they can be durable and water resistant. The texture of black stone will add plenty of character to your bathroom.
A Black & White Bathroom is always a good idea
If colours could be soulmates black and white would be a match made in heaven. Monochrome, has stayed mega-popular in the bathroom colour decor world and it’s no wonder when they complement each other effortlessly. Black absorbs light and white reflects it – it’s a perfect balance! Using black and white means your possibilities are endless! Mosaic wall? – you can do it. Checkered tiles? – you can do it. A mix of white and black bathroom furniture – you can do it! Pair white vanity units, with matt black fittings to created effortless modern chic.
Opt for a more traditional feel with white tiles and black grout. This will create a beautiful canvas for you to build on. Or alternatively, create the ultimate modern bathroom décor by using contrast such as black tiles and white walls.
Black and white bathrooms are a timeless colour scheme, so you won’t have to worry about re decorating any time soon.
