Black + White Bathrooms

November 23, 2013

If I’m a fan of anything, it’s a timeless interior. Trends come and go, but designing a space in a classic black and white palette guarantees it will feel fresh years after completion. The sophisticated yet neutral combination is worth consideration in any bathroom remodel and the options for incorporating the look are as numerous as the repeating squares in basketweave floor tile.


Bathrooms require investing in surfaces that are functional and resistant to moisture. Since it’s a space used several times a day, it makes sense when remodeling a bathroom to invest in choices that will stand the test of time. The combination of a touch of black with classic marble surfaces is a recipe for design longevity.

One contemporary approach to black and white bathroom design is to add drama with a modern tile installation, one that partners well with the black architectural touches.

In a light filled white bathroom, black painted cabinets and ebony floors ground the space and balance the drama created by a pitched ceiling and divided light windows.

 If a black and white bathroom space feels to stark, introduce color with art, accessories, or paint on the walls – cool blues and grays will always complement the permanent finishes, fixtures, and trim.
