Black and White Bathroom Décor: A Summary

Your bathroom is supposed to feel chic and rejuvenating. It’s a space meant for spending time on yourself. A space so ritualistic should look the part. There are endless ways to incorporate black and white décor into your bathroom, but we’re going to walk you through the top trends according to your unique style.

The Classic Combo: Pro Tips

ElephantStock's interior design expert Elimar Lobo Sáenz explains the black and white trend:

“Black-and-white interiors will always be in style, and this dynamic duo can help you create a space that is full of possibilities. Add a splash of grey and dark charcoal to soften the appearance of your black and white color palette. This foolproof combination will make your space look instantly chic and contemporary. For another modern idea, add a piece of wall art that incorporates geometric shapes.”

Elegant Black and White Bathroom Décor

If your style is sleek and elegant, stick to a minimalist color palette and theme. Explore finishes like quartz and stainless steel. Cool tones will look sophisticated and stunning. Paint your walls in an off-white color to make your space feel large and clean. Hang a piece of wall art that incorporates black and white in a soft and subtle way. If you want to add a pop of color, consider an organic green. Live greenery and houseplants can purify your air and make your bathroom feel like a spa. For a finishing touch, transfer your soaps and beauty products into label-less containers that blend in with the environment.

Modern Black and White Bathroom Décor

Looking to create a wholly modern aesthetic? Start with a black and white base and experiment with dark woods and concrete finishes. Play with an almost industrial look by hanging contemporary shelves rather than cabinetry. Accessorize with ceramic pots and perfectly imperfect details. Display your cosmetics casually on the countertop for an effortlessly stylish look. Hang a piece of wall art that has a patent quality or chalkboard theme for a cheeky, contemporary take.

Vintage Black and White Bathroom Décor

Not only is the black and white pairing modern, but it can also look timeless. If you want to add a vintage touch to your space, black and white can be a classic option. Mix black and white with warmer tones like beige and tan for a more traditional look. You can also use gold finishes for a vintage style that’s coming back in a big way. Display antique perfume bottles and makeup compacts as your star accessories. Use a diffuser to perfume the air with the warm scent of vanilla bean. Finally, choose plush towels to give yourself an ultra-luxe experience.

Bathroom Wall Art Ideas

If you’re designing your bathroom on a budget, consider adding a piece of black and white wall art. Artwork can give your bathroom a brand-new look without breaking the bank. Even if you can only afford to add a single print to your space, this simple technique can instantly change the look of your entire bathroom.

Take some advice from our décor expert, Elimar Lobo Sáenz. She explains the impact wall art can make on your bathroom space:

“First and foremost, the bathroom is a sacred space to be with yourself. Aesthetically, it can play a huge role in setting the tone for the rest of your interior. Adding a large canvas print or piece of art is an ideal way to tie the whole room together. Plus, wall art is a great way to add a touch of personality! Don’t forget, never underestimate the power of a well-curated gallery-wall in your bathroom!”

Colors to Pair with Black and White

There are endless color pairings for black and white, that’s what makes this duo so popular! These two colors can work with practically any accent shade. It’s up to you whether you want to keep a colorless, monochromatic space, or you want to add a splash of saturation. The next step is to decide whether you prefer a pastel or vibrant accent color. Typical bathroom colors include seafoam and sage, but you can also opt for something less expected. A foolproof color combo is black, white, and red. A rich, ruby red will give your space a stunning look that will never go out of style.
