  • Creating Modern Bathroom Drama – In a Great Way!

    Modern Bathroom Remodeling

    If you’ve been considering remodeling your modern bathroom, you may have been surprised by the dark colors, including black, navy blue,s and charcoal grays appearing in some of the most inspiring rooms. In the past, these hues have often been dismissed by the idea that they might make a room appear too small, not allow enough light, or seem too drab.

    Add huge drama and depth as an alternative to the perhaps sterile-looking all-white modern bathrooms that have become so commonplace by using or combining these shades appropriately. If you’re ready for an extraordinary modern bathroom or if you’re simply looking for ways to incorporate these colors for a modern and updated look, here are some terrific ideas.

    Tired of the All White Bathroom?

    If you've had the all white aesthetic for too long, it can get old. Easily update to a classic black and white palette without a major expense or remodeling. Changing a plain white sink out to a sleek and modern, square or circular-shaped, above-counter vessel in black can make a great addition to any sized modern bathroom; try The Lacee 2802 in Obisidian. Double the effect and add extra get-ready space by adding double sinks side by side. Then, consider changing a boring vanity countertop to a sleek black granite one.

    Pops of Color

    If you want to incorporate smaller pops of color into your modern bathroom, matte black finishes are showing up everywhere, including on mirror frames, plumbing fixtures, lighting options, and décor. Wallpaper is another terrific option, adding light touches in a subtle pattern or bold vertical stripes.

    Not Just Black and White

    Of course, black or black and white are not the only worthy options to examine. In fact, mixing pale grays and deep navy blues, especially when mixed with natural wood finishes, can create a moody, soothing, yet modern feel. Even modern bathrooms that currently have a splash of color can benefit from the boldness and style that the addition of black or charcoal gray can add. The whole trick is in balancing the additions for a harmonic effect.

    With so many exciting looks available today, there's sure to be one that fits your personality and style. Seeking professional advice can give you fresh new ideas and may help you successfully attain the look you choose.

    The black & white bath is timeless…although it’s heavily trending right now, I feel like it’s a classic look. In fact, the bath I grew up with in my childhood home, was an all-black & white bath (the other was all powder blue, including the fixtures…not quite as timeless! lol), so I’ve always been exposed to this look, and actually really love it! As a designer, over the past year or so, I have been getting this request from clients for their bathroom remodels. There is something so dramatic about the look of the all black and white room. It’s a color palette that really works in all design styles, from classic traditional, and transitional, to modern.
