Classic and Versatile: A Bathroom in Black and White

The bathroom as we know it today is much more than just a place for hygiene. The 4 tiled walls have long been transformed into a decorative oasis of well-being. If you like contrasts and classics, you can opt for a black and white bathroom. A design that is colorless and timeless, and definitely one of the trends for 2022. A black and white bathroom brings sensuality, a cozy atmosphere and a special lifestyle to the bathroom.

But what do you need to consider when designing a black and white bathroom? What are the benefits of a high-contrast bathroom? And how do you keep it from looking dull and dark?

Black or white Base?

If you are considering a black and white bathroom, it is important to know the effect of each base color. Black tiles with white bathroom elements - this combination is timelessly elegant. Tiles work well with white bathroom fixtures such as towel rails or mirrors. White high gloss furniture against a black wall, for example, looks particularly stylish. It also adds warmth and coziness to dark rooms.

Black bathroom furniture in front of plain white walls create exciting contrasts. In addition, black accents appear clear and tidy. Black bathroom furniture and black fittings are perfect if you want to furnish your bathroom in a minimalist way . A special eye-catcher is, for example, a black ceramic washbasin, which looks good on a white background even in a small bathroom.

Speaking of which, small bathrooms should be kept light and accented with dark tones, as too much black can be overwhelming. If you have a more opulent bathroom, you can go all out with dark tiles. Dark bathroom furniture and larger bathroom items, such as a dark shower curtain, can also make a large bathroom look stylish rather than cramped. Keep in mind, however, that black tiles require more maintenance because limescale stains are easier to see.

But whether black with white or white with black - which combination you choose is absolutely a matter of taste!

Black and white is changeable

At first glance, a black-and-white bathroom may seem a bit colorless and drab. But far from it: this two-tone style for the wet room can do more than you think. Because the two non-colors, black and white, provide the perfect foundation for color accents.

Paired with splashes of color such as trendy green or a warm shade of pink, colored textiles like towels really come into their own. And the best part? You can change the accent color at any time! Just swap out the green towels or the pink rug for a new color and a whole new atmosphere is created.

Black is back: Matt black is the new chrome!

Black, in particular, is the absolute trend in the bathroom in 2022. This applies to sanitary ceramics such as sinks, bathtubs and toilets, as well as bathroom fittings and furniture. Many models are available with a matte black finish

You have the choice between straightforward types and series with a playful design language. This also applies to accessories such as soap dispensers, toothbrush holders, towel rails and the like. Striking elements such as black handle strips with a frame look are also characteristic of the industrial design.

Black and white metal furniture brings clarity and calm

If you like things clean and serene, a black and white bathroom is for you. Black metal and steel can easily be combined with the basic color white in the form of bathroom fixtures and bathroom accessories. Small details are enough to give the style of the bathroom a new direction. In addition to smaller elements, black bathroom metal furniture, for example, is a real eye-catcher in a plain white bathroom.


Industrial look in Black or White

The black mirror CALEO by Metallbude combines industrial design with minimalism and a little scandinavian vibe. With its rounded edges, the black mirror sets a clear accent in the room while still looking subtle and soft. For a reverse combination, the wall mirror is also available in white if your bathroom walls are painted in black. The black metal towel holder DELAYA or the towel rack ESTINIA go well together. The two towel rails are also available in white. They come with handy S-shaped hooks for hanging various bathroom essentials. This creates a tidy and calm atmosphere. The simple, angular shapes of the black or white metal bars provide space for towels on the sink, in front of the shower or over the bathtub. The stylish toilet roll holder TUALI and shower tray SHEA, combined with black or white faucets from the same range, complete the industrial look.


Black and White Combination

Metal furniture in the contrasting bathroom creates clear structures. You can also enhance the classic black and white look by combining it with natural materials such as wood. Wood adds a cozy touch to the clean look. Warm wood tones such as light beech or spruce work well, as do reddish chestnut or maple. Small freestanding shelves or metal vanity units with wood make the black-and-white look homey.

Silver and gold elements, on the other hand, add a touch of class. Think vases, wall sconces, or even toothbrush holders or bathroom fixtures in gold or silver. Glamorous gold and silver work well with black and white, but remember: less is more!

If gold and silver are too flashy for you, try copper, which is more subtle but just as rich. Stainless steel is also a perfect complement to a black and white interior and can be easily integrated into the bathroom - for example, in the form of stainless steel bathroom fixtures or stainless steel bathroom accessories.

Whether the bathroom is small or large, there is a black and white look for every bathroom. Black accents on white create clean lines, while white elements on black bring elegance and warmth to your bathroom. Both combinations are trendy this year and will turn your bathroom into a haven of well-being. Find the right products for your black and white bathroom at Metallbude.
