Bathroom In Black

Carolyn Purnell Oct 14, 2014 Bathroom Color Home Share Pin It Email Share Email Share Email (Image credit: My Paradissi) Black bedrooms, inky kitchen cabinets, and dark living rooms have all been fodder for discussion here on AT, but lately, I feel like I’ve seen a spate of black walls popping up in bathrooms. What’s your take on this bold choice? On the one hand, black walls in bathrooms can be unbelievably elegant and beautiful, as the bathroom in the Sag Harbour cottage above (designed by ASH NYC) shows. And if you’re the sort of person to take long, relaxing baths, the dark walls could feel cozy, intimate, and restful. I had a black bedroom for years, and the color made it feel like a retreat from the world. On the other hand, bathrooms are not all about relaxation. In the morning, when you’re getting ready, you probably want some light to jog you into being, and when you’re trying to put on makeup, get a close shave, or perform other grooming tasks, it can be helpful to have a brighter space. It would make a difference if the bathroom in question had windows, of course, or lots of white tile or other white accents, but generally speaking, dark walls don’t offer a light and bright atmosphere. So what do you think? Are black bathrooms a good idea, a bad idea, or good only in certain circumstances? Share Email

Bathroom In Black

Black and white is a quite popular color scheme. You can deny the power of this contrasting combination. Bathrooms are perfect rooms for experimenting with this scheme. Mostly that’s because of the fact that mostly all bathroom appliances are white. Besides, black and white decor is timeless and works with every style there is. You can design a modern, a traditional, an eclectic and even a rustic bathroom in these colors. The tile manufacturers are also helping designing beautiful tiles collections that could help to make a bathroom looks bold and creative. That’s why you won’t even need a fancy bathtub or some luxurious light fixtures to make a statement in your bathroom. I hope you’ll find some interesting ideas for yourself in this gallery.
