Black and White Bathrooms; Design ideas


1. Traditional
It’s hard to beat the timeless allure of tessellated and octagon and dot tiles.  These tiles look best in period style bathrooms complete with  traditional style clawfoot bath and freestanding vanities.


Black and white checkerboard tiles on floors, traditional subway tiles on the walls with a dash of bold colour gives this ‘old style’ bathroom shop-stopper appeal.

2. Classic
Marble tiles in Black Nero Marquina and white Bianco Carrara add opulence and a timeless elegance that will look as good today as it will in years to come


Located in a cosy penthouse apartment at the Docklands (Melbourne) this bathroom oozes elegance, style and not to mention quite a bit of ‘wow’ factor.  Using large slabs of Carrara marble and a custom designed Sicis glass mosaic panel, it’s hard to imagine a more luxurious space.

Art Deco inspired, this bathroom makes quite the statement.  The vanity is from Bisazza’s Hayon Collection and combined with the black bath tub, tiles and painted black wall the results are dramatic and sophisticated.

3. Go For Pattern!
Pattern tiles are on trend right now but if applied in a black and white colour-way they will stand the test of time.

This bathroom uses a graphic Bisazza glass mosaic tile pattern on the walls creating a stand-out feature. Simple black floors and white bathware completes the stunning zone.

4. Modern
Sleek lines, bold colour and fuss-free fittings will achieve a modern interpretation to the classic black and white theme.

This bathroom uses large format black floor tiles with equally large slabs on the wall for a seamless and dramatic look.  All other features in the zone are kept simple giving an ultra modern ambience to the space.

The rectangular mosaics on this feature wall add texture and dimension to the bathroom.  Simple white bathware and chrome fittings amplify modern appeal.
