Black is all the rage when it comes to contemporary modern home design. From trims, window frames, doors and even our bathrooms, the color black has captured our imagination with endless design ideas.
Here are a few interesting ideas to tell your general contractor to incorporate into your bathroom project:
Light Things Up
Black evokes drama and mystery. Without the correct lighting, it might just be borderline scary. To not create stark shadows, use bulbs with a warm glow. Overhead lights and wall sconces can give off ample lighting, but retain the drama you want.
Play With Finishes
Black can appear flat and lifeless, especially when you use one single kind of tile for the entire bathroom. Use a variety of finishes to add visual interest. Why don’t you try a matte floor tile and a glossy finish for the shower wall?
If you don’t like to go all-black, why don’t you try adding black fixtures? It adds a chic take on the urban/industrial look.
Texture and Details
Following the industrial look, adding texture to a bathroom ties up this black ensemble. Try black mosaic tiles with black fixtures paired with natural wood finishes for cabinetry and some woven accessories like mats, hampers and rattan baskets.
Add in the Metals
Pewter, gunmetal and copper are just some a few metal tones you may use with this black bathroom trend. Gold finishes on faucets and handles, soap dishes, wall sconces and waste cans add the right kind of warmth to offset the coldness.
