Black In Bathroom

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

No one wants a bathroom full of mold, but before you can get rid of or even prevent bathroom mold, first you have to understand why you have it in the first place and where else bathroom mold might be hiding. Mold spores are everywhere. It’s not uncommon for you to live with mold for long periods of time without realizing it. Mold is a type of fungi and fungi covers about a fourth of the Earth’s biomass. What does this mean to you? Well, mold can grow pretty much anywhere and everywhere when conditions are right. Dark moist places like your bathroom are a big target for mold growth.

Andre Rothblatt Architecture 3. Architect Andre Rothblatt and Ragnar Boresen at The Sink Factory maxed out the idea of pairing black with metallics, using ready-made copper pipes to create steampunk style in this San Francisco bathroom. A hammered copper sink basin picks up on the pipes, while black tile and a Victorian-style wallpaper complete the look. See more of this steampunk bathroom
