Black has long evoked a sense of luxury, indulgence and dramatic sophistication, and it never goes out of style. Throughout the year we’ve seen interior designers opting for bold, dark and sultry, welcoming all shades of ebony from the kitchen to the bedroom. Now black is stealing the spotlight from the traditional white bathroom we’ve adored for what feels like centuries. Feeling a little wary of this dramatic colour? We’ll guide you through the ins and outs that’ll have you embracing the dark side in no time.
For the bold and the brave, perhaps a whole bathroom makeover is in store. The monochrome traditionalist seeking a bathroom revamp will feel right at home with a statement black feature wall behind an original white vanity, and black tiles are not only arguably more practical than their white counterpart, they’re also incredibly classy too.
Sleek black marble is highly appreciated in modern interior design for its striking stylishness; for that true grandeur, pair with gold or copper bathroom amenities like tapware, sinks and mirrors.
Black also works well as a complementary accent, particularly if you want to play it safe, so consider replacing your existing faucets, shower head, radiator and other fixtures with raw black versions. Industrial-inspired elements in black are also oh-so-trendy this year thanks to their minimalist look that’s equal parts rugged and refined.
So why not take a walk on the dark side – your bathroom will thank you for it.
