Black and White Bathroom

Posted on May 28 2012, Bathroom Planning

Is the design classic of black and white in the bathroom a safe choice or has it been reinvented?  The bathrooms of today are far removed from the old ones with black hardboard bath panels, white curtain if you had a shower over the bath, flimsy black plastic seats on the toilets, and tired old lino or plastic on the floor.  Hands up who remembers a bathroom with something like that in it?  Mine’s up – as an army brat moving house almost every year I remember lots of bathrooms like that!
These were then replaced with the strong vibrant colours of Avocado, Burgundy, and various shades of Blue, Pink and Yellow, and several shades of Brown.  Their heyday was the 1960/70’s, and we are still ripping some of these out when we install modern replacements.
However black and white is back with a bang, in some cases, like all true design classics having never gone away – don’t all ladies have the staple in the wardrobe of the little black dress?  
The black and white bathroom has been reinvented and updated, and can look simply stunning.

If the monochrome look is not for you, and you want to be more adventurous then add a pop of colour with a feature tile area, or transform the look with some statement coloured tiles.

See what difference a gold basin and gold tiles make against the matt black of the tiles.

The gold taps with their delicate shape and colour soften the otherwise masculine look of the black basins and gloss black furniture.

The wood finish in these images with the black and brown high gloss of the ebony finish add an extra dimension against the brilliant white of the ceramics, the drawers or the muted white of the painted floor.

The rich tones of the wood are more visible in this close up.
