27 White Bathrooms with Black Accents That Radiate Elegance and Refinement

White Bathroom with Black Accents

The combination of a white bathroom with black accents never fails to create a striking appeal that transcends both time and trends. Whether you have a modern, farmhouse, traditional, or any other kind of bathroom theme, pairing white with black is a foolproof way to design a stylish space. 

Since white is typically used to create a relaxing environment in the bathroom, opt for this shade when selecting the finishes for your walls and ceilings. Aside from plain wall tiles, other possible options include subway tiles, marble stone tiles, and shiplap, as well as wallpaper for dry areas.

Black, on the other hand, can be incorporated into smaller details such as mirror frames, tapware, shower fixtures and frames, hardware, and décor. Floor tiles with black patterned designs are also a favorite among homeowners because they instantly bring character to a white space.

In bathrooms where the walls and floors are both white, black is usually used for the furniture. Vanity and linen cabinets in black ad a touch of drama and color to a space without breaking the airiness of the interior. 

Take your pick from these 27 white bathrooms with black accents and get inspired to take the next step in elevating the elegance of your bathroom interior.
