Black and white is a stunning colour combination that can make a real statement. The mix of black and white can fit a variety of styles. This combination can create a sophisticated, elegant, modern or traditional look in any space. If you are about to undertake a bathroom makeover, there are a variety of ways that you can incorporate black and white in this space.


The materials and colours that you use on your bathroom floor can set the tone for the entire space. If you are going with a black and white theme, you can easily incorporate it in your flooring. Large ceramic square tiles can be laid in a checker board fashion, creating a retro look in this space. For a sophisticated, high-end look, cover the floor in white marble or black granite. For an interesting and eye-catching look, an artistic pattern can be created out of white tile in the centre of an all black tile floor.


Fixtures are another way to incorporate these colours into your bathroom. Achieve a country look by installing a whitewashed wooden vanity with curved legs and slatted doors. For a contemporary design, install a black lacquered vanity with straight legs. Other fixtures that can be installed in these colours include the toilet, tub and sink.

Tile Work

Ceramic, glass, marble or granite tiles are commonly used for various bathroom surfaces, as they are easy to clean and stand up to constant water exposure. Perhaps you are using tile for your vanity countertop, on the walls or in the shower. However you are using tile work, it is easy to select tiles that fit in to the black and white theme. Use subway tiles on the walls in either or both colours for a trendy look. On the interior of your shower, use black and white mosaic tiles to create an interesting look. On your countertop, black and white ceramic tiles cut in a hexagonal shape offer a modern look.


If you are on a budget or are not up to taking on an entire bathroom remodel, yet you still desire a new look for this space, perhaps the easiest and most affordable way to do so is with accessories. A shower curtain drastically change the look of the room. A spa feeling can be set with a white waffle-weave curtain. Try a black and white toile print for a French Provincial inspired room.

Crisp white towels placed on a black shelf are also eye-catching.

Place black shag throw rugs on the floors to add warmth to the space.

Black and white geometric prints can be framed and hung on the walls as artwork.

Other accessories that you can add include a toothbrush and soap holder, baskets and even a dustbin in the selected colours.
