Black and white bathrooms are a great way to maintain stylistic simplicity, and they also allow you to experiment with any design movement or reflect any era without worrying too much about color matching.

Starting with the walls, if you're interested in a more romantic Victorian or colonial era bathroom, consider adding wallpaper in a toile or ticking style. This will create great visual interest in an otherwise straightforward design. For added visual punch, you can also add wall tiles in a thin strip of black or white, placed near eye level, stretching around the bathroom.

Color Unity

When it comes to the sink and tub, you can't go wrong with stark, porcelain white, especially if a more traditional look suits your style. If you lean more modern, a black toilet or tub is certainly an option. And for a vintage look, consider a classic claw foot tub as a centerpiece.

Accessories are a great opportunity to add pops of color to a black and white bathroom. Shower curtains, bath and hand towels, art, rugs and more can all liven up a black and white design with some bold colors and patterns.
