Surely there is nothing more exciting than the prospect of renovating your bathroom or kitchen! You may have been dreaming for months or even years about your oasis that you are about to create. You've spent hours studying different styles and the latest trends. The question is, should you pay attention to the latest trends?


Although we each have our own style, it is important to study the new trends. When it comes to bathroom renovations, good design of your bathroom layout is of great importance. Design and trends go hand in hand. Because your bathroom and kitchen are some of the most important rooms when selling your property, it's worth paying attention to design as well as the latest bathroom trends.


Black bathrooms have become quite the fashionable trend in the last few years. In fact, black never went out of fashion! Black sanitary ware offers you a timeless, classic look that’s an excellent choice when renovating or upgrading your bathroom. 


Whether you are considering a Scandinavian style black bathroom, looking for the old classic look with a touch of black, modern black bathroom, luxury, or contemporary styled black bathrooms, decorating with black bathroom accessories will turn a dull-looking bathroom into a sanctuary where you can truly unwind. 
Having done a bit of homework myself, I have noticed that there are beautiful examples of black being used in every possible style of bathroom.


Let’s have a look at the top 5 Bathroom styles dressed in a bit of black:


Traditional Black Bathroom

If it is comfort and functionality that you’re after, then traditional is your style. These are the type of bathrooms where polished wood, the use of glass, tile, and marble are all integral parts of this design. You are most likely to be a bit conservative in your styling approach and might just add some slight hints of black to modernize the look. A few black-framed prints add some interest to a traditional, functional bathroom.

Just changing to black bathroom accessories can add that bit of drama that you need to update your bathroom. To keep it classic, you can always opt for a tile with a black and white checkerboard design.

 

A very simple change to a black toilet paper holder or a black soap dish or even a black towel rail could be the slight statement in the bathroom that takes this room from being a dull-looking bathroom into a chic room. 

 

Contemporary Black Bathroom

If you feel that the traditional bathroom style is a bit “safe” for you, then the next option will most likely be the contemporary style black bathroom. These bathrooms are more up-to-date and elegant spaces. You will find clean lines, geometric patterns in black and white, and hard angles. It works well especially in smaller bathrooms because of the sleek and simple style. In this small bathroom, there are a few striking black bathroom accessories that draw attention to this bathroom.

The elegant black taps, matt black hand shower, as well as the round black shower head, add to the simple yet elegant style of this contemporary bathroom.

 

Modern Black Bathroom

If you are into the architecture and structure of key pieces, then the modern style black bathroom is the one for you. Crisp, clean white colours with subtle neutrals and a hint of black.

 

The only colour pops are in the form of accessories such as plants and bath towels. Accessories include seamless storage, electronic showers, double basins, soft-close toilets, and freestanding furniture.

 

This black freestanding bath mixer immediately takes this bathroom up to the next level of luxury. This bathroom offers loads of storage with the floorstanding vanity that is practical as well as pleasing to the eye. 

 

 

Beach Style Black Bathroom

Well, you might be thinking who on earth does a beach-style black bathroom if you don’t own your own coastal retreat?

 

The fact that the colour navy is associated with a feeling of calmness gives anyone enough reason to escape from their job, kids, or the hassles of daily life and step into their own beach paradise!

 

The accent wall made from wood paneling creates a coastal feeling. Matt black taps work very well with this style of bathroom.

 

The sandstone coloured countertop basins add to the beach look with the earthy colour. 

When crafting a black bathroom, it is often the finishing touches that bring everything together.

 

Eclectic Style Black Bathroom

By uniting a variety of styles in a single space, from vintage to carefully chosen furniture, art and décor elements, design movements and decorating styles, you will most likely love the eclectic style black bathroom.

 

You love being unique and interesting and making bold choices. By combining contemporary and traditional design styles, you will achieve a great eclectic mix in your bathroom.

 

This beautiful one-piece black freestanding bath immediately sets the tone for this eclectic style bathroom. Whether you choose between a matt black or black/white freestanding bath, the impact of this bold choice is big, but not overwhelming.

 

You can even pair the black bath with some metallic-coloured taps like gold or bronze to give an extremely chic and luxurious look. Throw in a black toilet that matches the style of your bath and you will have the perfect all-rounder of black ceramics. 

 

 

Now that you know what to consider before starting the renovation for your trendy new black bathroom, you can start shopping all things black and become the master of the black bathroom trend!
