Bathroom Inspiration - Black Fixtures & Fittings

Black bathroom fixtures and decor accessories offer elegance, sophistication and drama to any bathroom.

In a modern, black and white bathroom, black fixtures look so crisp, and they won’t show water spots and fingerprints like shinier finishes will. It can be hard to decide how much or little black to use — so I’ve done a little inspiration searching for you. Enjoy!

Room size

Dark colours do make rooms seem smaller. For the small black and white bathroom, black fixtures are preferable to black walls. White walls, and white shower curtains, will contrast pleasingly with the black fixtures while making your bathroom feel airy. Large mirrors also make the room feel bigger. But for very small bathroom, black fixtures are not practical.

Cleaning

Black fixtures will need to be cleaned more frequently, as they show water drops, soap scum, and dust. Fixtures may not be practical if you have a large family…unless the kids are going to help clean!
