Return of the Black Bathroom
Tis the season to begin planning next year’s home renovation projects. If a dream bathroom renovation is on your wish list, you’re probably pouring over photos of gorgeous spaces. That means there’s a good chance you’ve noticed that black bathrooms are quietly making a return.
From walls to accents, faucets, fixtures, and sometime all of the above, black is back. Here is a look at some of the ways that you can incorporate the black bathroom trend into your next renovation.
The Ultimate Attention-Getting Toilet
Nothing makes a statement about your commitment to the black bathroom trend like adding a black commode. However, don’t add just any black toilet, when you can conserve water and enjoy a style upgrade at the same time.
Kohler’s Kathryn Comfort Height one-piece compact elongated 1.28 gpf toilet with AquaPiston® flush technology allows you to save water with every flush, while the finish in Black Black™ is a definite attention-grabber.
Show Stopping Faucet
Going black with your bathroom faucet is always a bold move, since it’s such an atypical look. However, it’s also a great medium commitment way to embrace the black bathroom trend since installing a faucet isn’t as invasive as switching out the fixtures. When you install a black faucet, it creates a striking contrast against an otherwise light-coloured bathroom.
High Profile Lighting
Whether black all over or just the hardware, black lighting fixtures make a stunning first impression in your bathroom. The look is sleek and very different.
Black patterned bathroom floor tiles are having a pretty big moment right now. Weère seeing them in magazines, on our favourite home design shows, and all across the internet. This is a very graphic, bold look, that shows best against a white wall, and paired with an unexpected pop of colour.
Wow Factor Walls
For the ultimate ode to this inky shade, try swathing your bathroom walls in black. You can successfully use black paint in a room without make the space feel oppressive. Try framing it with white molding, add some gorgeous statement lighting and definitely experiment with accessories.
Some of our favourite powder room looks incorporate a healthy dose of black. Here is a look at some spaces that do this trend well.
The black is very present in this space, but not overpowering. Painting a vanity black and adding black lighting allows you to embrace this trend without a big-ticket commitment.
Think you can’t go black in a tiny space? Think again. The black hex flooring and exotic black wall paper work together to create a sensual space that feels open and spacious.
Black toilet, black hex tile, black sink …bravo. This is a truly elegant space, especially with the tile feature wall, greenery and gold accents. Very nice.
