Explore Unique Modern Bathrooms In Black And White – A bold splash of color inside a bathroom has become something very trendy in recent times, with homeowners willing to add audacious wallpaper and bright hues to give this small space a huge personality. Much like the other ‘hot trends’, this love for vivacious color might not last forever, but one color scheme that never goes out of trend is the classic duo of black and white. If you have ever stepped into a black and white bathroom, you will easily understand the timeless elegance of this combination and why it is perfect for your fashionable bathroom as well.

There are plenty of advantages to embracing a black and white color scheme, and they range from simplicity and design flexibility to having a backdrop that need not be altered frequently just to fit in with the changing trends. Giving even the tiniest of bathrooms a spacious and charming vibe, we delve today into the beautiful world of black and white bathrooms at their mesmerizing best.
Turn to Wallpaper
The perception that wallpaper in the bathroom is only useful when you want to usher in bold pattern and bright colors is pretty far off from reality. Even those wanting a stylish and sophisticated black and white backdrop for the bathroom can use wallpaper that brings plenty of pattern and personality to the limited space without actually disturbing the color scheme. Whether it is simple stripes or playful patterns inspired by the sights and sounds of nature, wallpaper in black and white is as much of a showstopper as those in striking shades.

If you’re not fond of wallpaper, then we suggest custom wall decals and murals, which can also make a big impact in the black and white bathroom, as the background itself is so very neutral in nature. It is best to use the wallpaper for all the exposed wall surfaces in really tiny bathrooms to cut down on visual fragmentation of space, while an accent wall in wallpaper makes sense in larger spaces.

Lighting It Right
No matter what color you use in the bathroom, poor lighting can give this small space a dark and dreary look. This could very well start you off on a cycle of constant redecorating and repainting without ever realizing that the real issue at hand is poor lighting. A sparkling chandelier coupled with clever ambient lighting is the ideal way forward in the black and white bathroom.
