Inspirational Bathrooms- Black is the New White

I do like black accents in a room, I feel it can sharpen up a scheme but I have been pondering recently on going the whole hog and having a completely black bathroom – the worst that can happen is I hate it and have to repaint.  Worth the risk I think for a bit of drama.  Have any of you gone for this look, I’d love to know what your thoughts are on actually living with it?

Black bathroom inspiration that I’ve been lusting over!

My bathroom has just been refitted with a plain white traditional suite and plain oak flooring which I have limed to lighten it.  I’ve painted a corner cupboard in turquoise to give some impact and chosen some ‘stuff’ from my stash to accessorize it so all it needs now is the black, dare I? I spend quite a lot of time standing in the doorway squinting and trying to visualize the look I want and then looking through Pinterest and blogs to see images that appeal to me.

Black Tiled Bathroom

Image source: 1

Love these black metro tiles, they make a very striking feature, but as tiling is not one of my skills I’ve decided to stick with white and then I can change the look of my bathroom easily with a lick of paint and without the expense.  What do you think then, shall I go for it…?

    Hi Be cautious- as a teenager we inherited a black bathroom suite-not a practical choice for the family bathroom, showing every speck of dust, make-up,hair etc -nightmare !

      Well, the bathroom has actually been painted already and it seems you might be right- eeek! Even when you wipe the walls with a cloth the mark shows up just from that! We’ll do an update post once we’ve started using it properly and let you know how we get on!
