A black and white bathroom offers an air of timeless luxury in the home, allowing the creation of many different design styles, from modern and contemporary looks to more traditional or transitional styled interiors. Each of these styles includes several distinct features that single it out from the rest, creating a strong and dramatic aesthetic in the home.

The following examples show just how many different styles can be achieved using a palette of predominately black and white to create a sense of drama and luxury in your next bathroom renovation.

Art Deco Bathroom Design

The Art Deco interior design style lends itself extremely well to a black and white palette, making use of dramatic touches and sleek, glossy surfaces to create a wonderfully timeless and elegant look. This style rose to popularity in the 1920’s and has since continued to feature in luxury interior designs all over the world, creating a look that is truly timeless. Glossy and reflective surfaces are key to creating the perfect Art Deco design scheme, paired with structured geometric patterns and ornately styled furnishings such as crystal chandeliers, detailed furniture and natural marble surfaces.

Glossy surfaces surround the luxurious freestanding bathtub to create the opulent vibe that has become synonymous with the trending Art Deco design style.

Contemporary Bathroom Design

A contemporary scheme makes use of modern design elements that are paired with a dramatic touch to create a more personalised look. This could mean a bold colour choice that has been carried throughout the entire design scheme to create a contrast between a bold monochrome backdrop or a strong eclectic pattern that is used to create a sense of movement and energy in the space.

The high energy vibe of the space is grounded with a modern black painted ceiling in perfect contrast with the crisp white wall tiles used to balance the design’s strong features.

Minimalist Bathroom Design

Minimalist interior design schemes eliminate clutter and ornate details to emphasise pure blocks of colour and structural lines. A minimalist design scheme is especially suited to modern and contemporary architecturally designed homes, drawing attention to the building’s structural design and elegance while creating a clean and crisp aesthetic. 

Using a minimalist design scheme in the bathroom creates a sleek and clean look, pulling your focus onto the various materials and finishes used rather than making decorative accessories and feature the key focus.

The floating vanity is built using a bold black engineered stone that clads the vanity top and oversized drawer beneath. The entire unit sits in front of a frosted glass window that creates a delightfully soothing stream of diffused light in the bathroom interior.

Modern Bathroom Design

Modern bathroom design again uses clean and crisp lines to create a soothing and clutter-free experience in the bathroom, cleverly concealing storage to keep necessities close at hand but neatly tucked away out of sight. A modern scheme however, often includes more textures and materials than a minimalist design, carefully drawing the eye to different areas of the space to create a visual journey. You will notice more organic textures and patterns used in modern bathroom design schemes, such as the discreet patterns shown on the floor tiles in the below example. 

Our Richmond bathroom renovation boasts a modern design scheme, using high gloss floor tiles in more of a charcoal tone rather than a deep black as a means of softening the bold character of the space. A laundry area is also included, featuring a washer and dryer as well as ample bench space to allow for a multi-purpose design.
