Chic Simplicity: A Black and White Bathroom

The black and white bathroom is a design classic that always feels fresh. The simplicity of black and white allows for endless experimentation with color and texture to make your space feel distinct and memorable.

The walls in a black and white bathroom are an interesting place to explore the use of patterned wallpaper, particularly in a bold geometric. On the other hand, you can’t go wrong with classic white subway tile and black trim. If you want to apply a contemporary twist to subway tile, reversing the look with black tile and white grout is an instant infusion of modern style.

Patterned flooring is an excellent choice in the black and white bath since the simplicity of the color scheme accentuates textures and patterns. White hexagon tiles with contrasting black dots, a basket weave style, pinwheel style, or checkerboard are some of the more popular options.

There’s something about a black and white bathroom that calls out for a clawfoot tub. While traditional white is always welcome, the black and white bathroom is also an ideal environment to try a black tub.

A standby of Victorian and Art Deco design, a black and white palette is both timeless and flexible. It can be adapted to any design style and updated over the years with accent colors and materials.
