The incorporation of black in the bathroom is one that can work beautifully. It gives you the opportunity to create a room that has the perfect blend between being dramatic yet elegant at the same time. It is also a rather unconventional choice, and when you can make something unusual work well you have mastered one of the arts of interior design.
Nevertheless, this isn’t to say that using black as a dominant bathroom colour is easy. You need to be aware of how and when to use it – which you will be once you finish reading this post.
There are two instances whereby black can be a tragedy rather than a triumph. The first is in a bathroom that is very small in size. Black will only enclose the space more and make it look tiny. The second is when the bathroom is under-lit. If you don’t have substantial lighting then you are going to end up with a dark and dingy bathroom.
A way to ensure your bathroom does not end up looking cramp as a result of using black is to be mindful of how you are going to incorporate the colour. If you don’t have a large bathroom then why not consider only painting one or two of the walls black? This will make the space look a lot bigger rather than running the risk of enclosing the area. You shouldn’t just think about painting the walls black either. What about opting for a black tiled floor?
