When it comes to designing a space, the color palette is usually the first step, and by far the most important element. Off the bat, it sets the tone for your project, whether it be bohemian with a vintage twist, or modern with a hint of glamour. And while large spaces like living rooms and bedrooms can boast a variety of hues, smaller spaces, like the bathroom, the lack of color could actually work in your favor. Ahead, 20 black and white bathrooms so good, you won't miss a stitch of pastel or a hint of jewel tones.
Play With Contrasting Tiles
We love how this bathroom committed to white tiles paired with black grout, but didn't get stuck using a single style. The contrast between the subway tiles on the walls and hexagon tiles on the floor adds tons of visual interest, without looking too busy.
Let The Light In
Most bathrooms have a small window, but replacing it with a large window will completely change the look of your space. With tons of light shining through your new window, even the smallest bathrooms can look large. Extra credit for finding a window that complements your color palette.
Swap Your Drawer Pulls
This is by far the easiest update you can make in any room, but it's a necessary one. Swapping the drawer pulls and knobs on cabinets from the standard white to a contrasting black looks chic and custom.
To simplify your life even further, paint your existing ones with a coat of spray paint when you're feeling up for a DIY.
Create A Focal Point
We're big fans of the freestanding tub, but until now, we've only ever visualized ours in a bright white porcelain. This bathroom proves a black tub is just as Instagrammable and draws your eye in every time.
Create Beautiful Vignettes
This is by far the most creative display of tile we've seen. The use of white subway tile on the walls, contrasted by the black hexagon tile on the floor is perfection enough. But the addition of the geometric pattern on the shelf and bench is beyond words.
Try Black Tile With White Grout
We've seen white tiles with black grout incorporated a lot but this is the first time we see it in reverse. The black tiles installed in a chevron pattern with white grout on the walls feels so much more modern.
