For a soft take on a black and white bathroom, give grey a go. Paint your walls in a soft grey like Polished Pebble and add white metro tiles with contrasting grey grout. Add more contrast with a stylish black-framed mirror and a small black plant pot or two, housing some green, leafy foliage. The result will be a minimalist Scandi-style bathroom that is effortlessly chic and oh-so-soothing.

- Use mirrors to give the illusion of space
Mirrors create the illusion of depth and help to bounce light around the room, making your bathroom appear both bigger and brighter. This is particularly effective in small bathrooms with limited natural light.

The beauty of a monochrome scheme is that virtually any colour can be added and it will work. Try a pop of royal blue or forest green for a touch of luxury, bright yellow or red for added fun, or pastel shades of pink for a chic and feminine touch.
- Keep it coherent with black and white accents
While just about any colour can be introduced into a black and white décor scheme, there’s something both simple and stylish about keeping things coherent with black and white accents. Think monochrome towels, plant pots, soap dispensers and photo frames for a striking monochrome bathroom.
- Bring the outdoors in with plants
No modern bathroom is complete without the addition of some houseplants. Certain types of plant work best in humidity, so be sure to do your research before investing in a leafy friend.
