White has been the staple color for bathroom designs for many years. That trend is phasing out and darker colors are in. Darker colors can be used in a number of ways in bathrooms, such as in tiles with metallic and matte tones. Dark colors like black may seem like a huge deviation from the clean minimalistic look of white, but interior designers say there are several reasons why darker colors make a strong statement in the bathroom.
Black accents marble. Many marble countertops used on bathroom vanities have hints of black or gray striations in them. Black or grey tile will highlight the darker hints in the marble.
Black creates a clean look. White isn’t the only color that give a space a clean look, black can achieve the same effect as white, while helping spaces look cleaner. White shows everything on it, while black can hide dust, dirt better than white.
Darker colors create depth and mood. Black allows spaces to achieve depth and character more successfully than white.
Darker colors make spaces feel more welcoming. Light colors expand spaces while darker spaces feel smaller and more “cozy”. Many homeowners want to achieve a more welcoming feeling by using darker colors in smaller spaces. Darker shades in large spaces can help make them feel more “homey” than lighter spaces.
Black is unique. The use of black makes interior spaces unique and striking in appearance. They stand out from the rest and ensure the space is interesting and memorable.
