I’ve shared my love of black and white many times on this blog. Every time I see a space decorated in a black and white palette, I’m in awe over how versatile and dynamic it can be. It is very timeless, so the investment is long-lasting. Plus, you can transform the palette in whatever creative direction you desire, from rustic to contemporary to glamorous and everything in between. It’s even gender neutral.
All of these things make black and white a fantastic choose for bathrooms. Since bathrooms have a lot of elements that can be laborious or costly to change (tile, flooring, cabinetry, a tub or shower), going with this palette can ensure that you won’t have to worry about these things becoming outdated. Your investment will last for a long time. You can easily change smaller accents around it when you get bored without having to worry about the larger ones clashing with anything new.
On top of it all, black and white bathrooms are incredibly chic. If you want to capture some high style, it’s hard to go wrong with this classic combo. Here are 10 chic black and white bathrooms to inspire you.
