Black and white bathroom décor can be anything you want it to be. This means it’s easy to change your design to stay on top of trends, whenever you feel like it. First of all, plants are always a good choice for a monochrome bathroom, adding a splash of green for visual interest, texture and peace of mind. For energy and depth, consider patterns for artwork or window treatments. To get really creative, paint a black geometric pattern on a white wall.
A touch of gold or silver brings instant glamour and it doesn’t have to come from tapware. Think statement pendant lights, silver-framed mirrors and antique gold accents for a retro look. No matter what your favourite colour of the moment is, chances are a dash of it will only enhance this scheme. Mix it up to your heart’s content with red towels, hot pink bath mats or yellow wall hangings.
A stylish monochrome bathroom is not usually a cluttered one, so it’s important to clean up the chaos, hide your things or display them in a decorative way. Smart storage is the way forward, especially if you’re tight on space. Consider wall-mounted cabinets and holders, storage ladders and baskets to store and display towels. Paint them black or white if you want to! Invest in shelves to keep the mess up high and save space. Hanging baskets are a great idea to keep things hidden behind a pretty surface.
Just before you jump in, it pays to ensure your decorating lasts the distance. Luckily, that’s as simple as using Dulux Easycare Bathroom+ Soft Sheen. This tough paint is moisture and steam resistant. Plus, its MouldTec formulation protects surfaces against the nasty stuff for five years.
Now, there’s no reason not to let monochrome transform your white bathroom into that luxurious retreat you deserve.
