This article explores our favourite black bathroom ideas and includes top tips for how to create a statement in your space. Modern yet minimalist, black bathroom design is perfect for anyone looking to break away from traditional bathroom colours and offers a more striking finish.

Why Choose a Black Bathroom?

Black is a popular, modern colour for bathrooms and with an array of black finishes there are more ways than ever to incorporate black into your bathroom design. Black used to be the colour to avoid in bathrooms as it was thought to give the appearance of a dark and dreary space, which is the opposite of what bathrooms should be. This guide will explore how to incorporate black into your bathroom to ensure it becomes a striking feature rather than a dull, dark finish.

Black Features

The use of matt black bathroom taps can provide a lovely contrast with white tiles and sanitaryware. White and neutral colours can make black stand out and add character to your space.

Black Bathroom Taps

Black basin taps perfectly complement white vanity units and countertop basins to give an elegant monochrome aesthetic.

Black Accessories & Towel Rails

When it comes to designing bathrooms, the finishing touches really do complete the look. Bathroom accessories and towel rails shouldn't just be essential items, but an opportunity to add more character and style to your space. Why not try a matt black heated towel rail or bathroom radiator to add an extra edge?

Monochrome Bathrooms

A classic monochrome theme includes white walls and floors with black assets and accessories. The trick for monochrome is to get the perfect balance between black and white tones and balancing it with some light woods or shades of grey to give your bathroom more character. Monochrome is especially great for small bathrooms, as the white will open up the space and black assets will add depth.

Black Feature Wall

If you're cautious about black making your bathroom appear too dark and closed up, a black tiled feature wall may be the perfect option to incorporate black into your bathroom without it taking over the space. Darker tones in bathrooms can be balanced with white sanitaryware along with large mirrors, to bounce more light around the room which is especially advantageous for small bathrooms.

Brushed Black

For something a little different, opt for a brushed black finish for an alternative take on a black bathroom design. If you prefer a slightly more understated finish, brushed black is the perfect balance between matt black and polished finishes such as chrome. Brushed black can be easier to clean than matt black finishes, and adds a reflective surface for your bathroom which will create a lighter and brighter space.
