The best part about designing kids’ rooms is that you can play with as many colors and shades that you want and experiment with more than just one theme. Add to it the fact that you are not limited in any way by the constraints of the remainder of the home and its existing motif and you obviously have plenty to choose from.
One of the obvious comforts of this color scheme is the fact that you can hardly ever go wrong with it. It is a hip color combination in bathrooms that has survived centuries and has never been dubbed as ‘out of touch’ with the current trends. Elegant, expressive and at times quirky, here are 45 black and white bathrooms that should inspire you to revamp your own bathroom with ebony and ivory!
Be it a stunning chandelier, lovely sconces or dazzling pendants, lighting sets the tone and the mood. While that is true in most cases, it is especially important in rooms that use black extensively, as poor lighting can lead to too many dark corners. Most lavish home bathrooms that embrace a black and white combo have a smart blend of several layers of artificial illumination, along with adequate natural ventilation.
Sure, we’ve showcased a few va-va-voom centerpieces that make a dramatic statement. But a surprisingly large number of striking dining table centerpieces are simple, elegant and easy to reproduce. This is good news for those of us who are on a budget or who simply change our minds often and want the flexibility of switching out one centerpiece for another on a whim.

Yes, the idea is to design a fun bathroom. But it is also to ensure that it is still a safe space for your kids and that none of them end up injuring themselves just because you did not plan for certain situations well ahead. Beautiful mirrors, cool customized accessories with your kid’s name on them, a fun work of framed art maybe painted by them can all help in creating an individual look without having to turn the entire bathroom inside out.
One of the fast growing necessities of modern living structures is use of the available space to the absolute hilt. That is completely understandable considering the premium that most of us need to fork out in order to acquire a home and this trend is no longer just confined to the big cities. With cool little lofts and apartment studios becoming pretty popular a floating bathroom vanity does save up on much needed leg room.
The black and white color scheme makes everything look a lot more striking, beautiful, sleek and refined. This is one of the reasons why it is preferred by those looking to add a luxurious vibe to their bathroom. A balance between the black and white tones is essential in creating this perfect look. Too much black can bring in a sense of dullness when not done right. Apart from a balanced use of the darker tones, lighting plays a key role in truly making the black and white bathroom spectacular.
Red and yellow are the two obvious favorites when it comes to accent hues in the black and white bathroom. If you are stuck in a studio apartment or stylish urban loft with little greenery around, then potted plants are a great addition as well. Gold, brass and copper are a few of the hot metallic accents that are really taking over in 2014. These glittering additions also look ravishing as accent touches while keeping in tune with the theme of your bathroom.

Decorating any small space is about avoiding visual fragmentation. Circular tables, transparent chairs and square tables with glass tops create an airy atmosphere and ensure that the small room looks larger than it really is.
