White bathrooms are popular for their hotel-like cleanliness, but if you like things on the more dramatic side, then a dark bathroom could be perfect for you.
Dark bathrooms are bold and classic in their own way. They are perfect for a masculine space, but can also be gender neutral or even feminine with the right accents. I especially love a dark palette for a small powder bath, as it’s the perfect spot to create a big statement. Dark colors are always unexpected, so if you want to push the boundaries while still maintaining a timeless appeal, then this could be the perfect strategy for you.
The following ten bathrooms use contrast and classic elements to create dramatic looks. Everything from the contemporary to the glamorous is possible with a deep palette.
Black subway tiles turn the classic look on its head, while bronze accents add a nice contrasting touch to it.
