Black Bathroom Floor

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.

We used matte black pennyrounds from Nemo tile (the style code is m890) in our bathroom with Polyblend sanded grout in Charcoal, which really does read as black to my eye. It took a bit of hunting to find it locally, but Tec makes sanded black caulk (Raven) that matched the grout pretty perfectly. (Grout is for between the tiles, and caulk is for joints — like where tiles meet at a corner or where your tile meets the tub.) Including the tile underlayment and all of the “ingredients,” the whole floor cost about $350.

People wonder about the maintenance of a black floor? Shoot… with my house of testosterone, I’d give anything for a black tiled/grouted floor. As it is, we have white with very light gray grout (er, USED to be light gray; came with the house) and it’s not a pretty situation anymore. Talk about difficult to keep clean… and I clean the bejesus out of it. BOO. Your tiny bathroom is definitely an inspiration!

Black – A regular favourite on many bathroom designers’ radars, black fixtures are a bold choice, yet still subtle and sophisticated when teamed with the right mix of materials. As in fashion, black tapware goes with pretty much everything and will inject a smart, graphic look into any style of space.

The caulk line looks a little grayish here, but that’s really just the photo. After four years, the color hasn’t faded at all — it still looks rich and black. Several people have asked me whether using products like talcum powder in the bathroom would be an issue with black grout. That’s not something I ever use, but I do wear loose face powder every day that I brush on with wild abandon…and I’ve never noticed it showing up in the grout. I have dropped bits of broken pressed powder onto the floor, though, and that does definitely require some clean-up, but nothing that a regular sponge and warm water can’t take care of. (Note: I did use a sealant after grouting. Not sure if that actually makes a difference, but it can’t hurt.)

The other thing that comes up a lot is the question of whether dust and water spots show on the tile. In short: No. Nothing shows on this tile. Even if I were a total pig and didn’t regularly clean my bathroom, I could go for a really, really long time before the floor looked dirty. Like…months. At least. I’m not going to try it to find out, but seriously, this is NOT a nightmare floor. I think that’s probably because the tiles are tiny/visually busy and because they’re matte. If I had 2×3′ polished black marble tiles, I might be singing a different tune!
