For many people who are considering redecorating their bathroom, black is one of the last colours that they will think of; pale pastel shades, and blues and greens are far more traditional colours.
However, black is actually a great colour for a bathroom and with ranges of black coloured washroom accessories becoming more and more common, there is no excuse for black bathrooms not to be considered.
Black bathrooms are effortlessly chic looking, without looking at all pretentious. They are also modern looking, without the risk of becoming unfashionable, because black is a timeless colour. Even if you do not want to have an entirely black bathroom, black and white monochrome bathrooms can still look particularly impressive compared to traditionally pastel shaded rooms.
One of the main worries for those who decide to have black bathroom fittings put in is that the bathroom may end up seeming too dark as a result. Since bathrooms often have windows that are smaller than the windows in other rooms, distorted windows to stop people seeing in, or no windows at all, the lack of natural light is a worry to some people, and they fear that dark fixtures will exacerbate the problem.
However, this need not be an issue if you consider this whilst designing your new bathroom. Simple steps such a classy gold taps or fixtures; big, well lit mirrors or coloured bathroom accessories should be considered when designing the bathroom, to ensure that the room will not appear too dark.
