Although it’s a timeless combination, black and white bathroom decor is a new trend! The Kitchen Master can help you get it right for your remodel.
The graphic appeal of black and white can be a trendy and dramatic statement for a modern bathroom. By using traditional white fixtures as your room’s basic elements and complementing squeaky clean appeal with striking black, you demonstrate your good taste and boost a bathroom’s design score to “A List” status.
Using black and white is newly stylish. You can readily change the look simply by changing a few accent pieces. Soften the edginess of black and white with a bouquet of pastels, or achieve the look of modern art with bright primary hues. Alter the decor based on changing seasons, or redo the room based on your mood.
Here are some great ways to express yourself with black and white:
Take a page from the European style book. A time-tested formula for bathroom decor is sparkling white porcelain complemented by the soft grey veining of Carrara marble and polished chrome. Not only is it a luxurious look, but it’s supremely simple, easy to keep looking pristine, and never outdated! This kind of classic elegance has upscale appeal, and is perfectly suited for a master spa retreat. Add fluffy white towels and robes, handy shower scuffs, and a great piece of artwork. You’ll want to spend hours in the bath!
Go for the Gold
Take your bath design to new heights by hanging a chandelier in the center of the room! Not only does a gold-toned antique become the focal point in this bathroom, but it showcases award-winning ingenuity. Take a bathroom from purely functional to highly fanciful, no matter what your style preference. Match the chandelier to your decor and have some fun with your bath remodel, whether your favorite period is French empire, rustic American or Euro chic. In this spectacular period room the ornate black and while tile floor grounds the space, while all else is white. Achieve a totally different vibe for a modern bathroom. Expand space and double the impact with a lavish use of mirrors.
Pile on the Pattern
Enhance the impact of black and white by combining both horizontal and vertical stripes, a harlequin patterned floor, solid white cabinets and trim, solid black doors, and black/white art. It may be “overload,” but it works for small spaces. One thing is certain: You’ll never be bored with this bath design
Dark as Midnight
Dark flooring and deep-toned wood trim don’t have to feel heavy and moody. With abundant natural light from a stunning window, mirrored surfaces to bounce the light around, and a hint of white for relief, you can highlight period architecture and have a soothing private space at the same time. The addition of lighthearted accessories — the ladder back chair, woven hamper and handy towel rack are practical as well as stylish.
Shades of Style
Quirky touches like the black bare-bulb lighting and a vanity cabinet that recalls “brick and board” bookcases take this bathroom to uncharted heights. The stunning black soapstone sink is, of course, an inspired choice, and the judicious use of a black-frame mirror and black towel hooks prove that a basic white bath is never a style mistake. The “lighter than black” vanity shelving adds softness and character to the simple scheme.
