Photo Gallery: Black And White Bathrooms
High-contrast, high-impact looks.
Matte black paint on panelled walls, paired with a black clawfoot tub, is an unexpectedly elegant change from predictable, white marble bathrooms. French door-style windows add even more high-end appeal.
Black-and-white basket-weave floor tiles and extra-high baseboards look crisp against walls painted in a metallic bronze tone. A wall-mounted sink with exposed plumbing a footed wood cabinet sub in for the traditional vanity in this spectacular bathroom.
A black tub and graphic wallpaper both add a subversize hit of style to this trad bathroom and contrast the white-painted brick chimney in the corner. A classic black and white tiled floor sets the stage for vintage-style unfitted fixtures and polished chrome hardware.
Michael Penney spray-painted a vintage wall-mounted unit black to visually anchor the space. The open weave pattern keeps it airy and helps create storage in this compact bathroom. He also chose a simple polka-dot shower curtain for its quirky, Kate Spade vibe.
A black shower curtain grounds the space and provides visual contrast for the white tiles in this 2010 Princess Margaret Showhome guest bathroom. A black doorknob heralds the dramatic black curtain within.
Designers Matt Carr and Joyce Lo boosted the old-world appeal of their Victorian home’s bathroom by adding antique gold accessories to work with the black gooseneck wall sconce, hex-tiled floor and black pedestal bathtub. The result is a one-of-a-kind, vintage look.
A humble bluestone marble hex-tile floor takes on a rich note when paired with Statuario Perla marble subway tiles on walls. The honed granite slab covers the threshold for a seamless transition into the shower, and is echoed by a black shower curtain rod above.
A black window frame makes white accessories pop and the tiled windowsill becomes a clever, water-resistant shelf for everyday items and display.
With its warm, burnished finish, this copper tub is the star of this bathroom. It brings visual interest to the black and white decor and will develop a beautiful patina over time that adds to its rustic look.
A new double-hung window in this renovated bathroom was painted black to lend it character. Original black and white drawings pick up on dark accents like a hex-tile floor, battered stool and slate towel to lend this space a personal touch.
This Victorian home’s bathroom has a dramatic black statement wall and standalone tub. The glass and tile shower wall runs the full width of the room and is fully exposed (only the window is frosted for privacy). A hide rug and woven basket injects a global hit of warmth.
When the cost to reseal and refinish a vintage clawfoot tub proved too steep, H&H art director Mandy Milks sourced a modern-day model and handpainted it a rich, matte black, and plated the feet in patinated brass. A linen shower curtain and dramatic brass rod give the tub presence.
