Trend Alert: Black Bathroom Details

We have seen a huge resurgence in the popularity of black bathroom details in recent years, and it is easy to see why. Incorporating black into your bathroom can add a touch of elegance, sophistication and interest. Here we take a look at exactly why black bathroom details are so fashionable and how you can embrace this trend into your own space.

Taps

If you are not redecorating or renovating your bathroom, then the easiest way to get in on this trend is to opt for black taps. These are both a practical and stylish choice, as water marks and fingerprints don’t show up as much on black taps. Investing in black taps is also a good way of trying out the colour in a subtle way, before committing to a more statement piece. We have a great range of black taps available here, including waterfall taps, basin mono mixers and bath fillers.

Showers

Another way to incorporate some of this colour into your bathroom is by choosing a black shower, shower screen or tray. These pieces will make a big impact and the bold colour will draw the eye. There is also the added bonus that you will spend less time polishing these fixtures than their chrome counterparts. Our Sorrento Black Shower and Shower Panel ooze sophistication and will make you feel like you are in a luxury boutique hotel.

Baths

If you would like to be bold and go for a statement piece in your bathroom, then what better way to do this than with an opulent black free-standing bath? Our Bay 1700mm Acrylic Black FreeStanding Bath would be a sleek and sophisticated focal point for any modern bathroom. Paired with stunning freestanding taps it would be the perfect place for a relaxing soak.

Tiles

People can sometimes feel that black tiles make a room feel moody, dark and small. However, the key is to keep the black in balance with other lighter colours to create a more spacious effect. You could go for classic monochrome metro tiles, marble-effect tiles or a patterned tile containing both shades. If you want to stay away from white, you could add a pop of colour to complement your black interior through colourful accessories. Bright mustard, fuchsia pink and cornflower blue all work really well with a black colour palette.

Final Take!

Adding black accents to your bathroom needn’t be a daunting task. With a little thought and planning you can bring this trend into your bathroom without making the space feel dark. Use the shade sparingly, to highlight features and add depth to a white or grey colour palette and you will have nailed the trend.
