Black and white as a color scheme has a timeless elegance to it, and because of this, a black and white bathroom is unlikely to go out of style any time soon. These two colors contrast well against each other, so using them together is an easy way to create a dramatic look in your bathroom.
While white will make your space feel light, airy, and bright, black will have the opposite effect, making your bathroom feel darker and smaller. But, when used in the right way, black and white together can create an effortlessly stylish, balanced look.
Whether you want to create a sleek contemporary shower room, or something a little more traditional, these stunning bathrooms will be sure to inspire you!
