Monochrome bathrooms continue to increase in popularity. They have a timeless quality, and their look and feel can be adapted to suit a multitude of tastes, styles and budgets. Here’s how to achieve this effortlessly cool look…

  • Relaxation zone

    The bathroom functions as a relaxation zone where you can unwind from the stresses of the day. Keeping your monochrome bathroom void of colour will allow for minimal distractions and will assist in calming the mind.



  • Bold design

    For high-impact design, you can’t go wrong with a white palette, accompanied by black accents. A black wall with a motif adds a vintage twist to the space.


  • The softer touch

    A few wooden accessories add a soft, natural touch to an otherwise utilitarian space.


  • Ultra luxe

    Make your monochrome bathroom ultra luxe with a marble countertop and dramatic black and white artwork.


  • All white

    If you’re feeling particularly brave, go for an all white bathroom. A painted black alcove adds depth to the interior.

  • Quirky features

    A freestanding bath looks great in a black and white bathroom. Ladder shelving, a dramatic chandelier and panelled walls are fun features that add interest to the room.


  • Classic cool

    Give your black and white bathroom an urban look and feel with floor-to-ceiling subway tiles. We’ve noticed a return to early 20th-century inspired spaces and the use of marble vanities and brass accessories are good examples of this trend.


  • Checkmate!

    A checkerboard floor looks great in any bathroom. Give your room a graphic punch with this classic decor feature.
