Luxurious black and white bathroom Decoration Picture
For years, black paint on bathroom walls was frowned upon because it created too dark of a space. According to Homes & Gardens, however, black paint can be a bold choice for a bathroom that will create a striking, sophisticated look. If you are a fearless homeowner looking for a dramatic look, painting your bathroom black might just be for you.
A black and white bathroom has a certain elegance to it, a clean feel that’s crisp and uncluttered and perfect for what is probably the smallest room in your house. It’s also one of the simplest looks to pull off because it doesn’t require painting and chances are your starting point is already white. Designing a black and white bathroom that’s not generic is easy to do with a little planning, some creative vision and these tips.

Odds are you are beginning with white. White toilet, white tub, white sink–you get the idea. So bringing in some black elements is the first step. A black accent wall or some black trim is a great place to start. Just remember, if you’re painting in a bathroom, choose a paint that’s high-gloss and able to withstand a lot of moisture. You can purchase paint specially formulated for bathrooms.
If a black wall is overly dramatic, try some black stencils on your white wall. A cutout of dots or squares with contact paper can make a modern geometric design or use painter’s tape and paint stripes.
A shower curtain is an easy design element, and there are so many different black and white patterns that choosing one may be the hardest part of this project. Consider toile (a scenic print) for a Country French look or crisp black-and-white stripes or a black-and-white plaid for tailored styles.
Add storage. Choose floating shelves or a tall narrow shelf unit to hold baskets or large ceramic bowls for storing small items. Towels (black or white) folded neatly on a shelf are a design element as are black hand towels.
Appropriate accessories include large white candles (perfect for bubble baths), a white or clear vase for fresh flowers and small black-and-white prints or photographs.
