How to Pull Off a Black Bathroom (That Doesn't Look Like It Belongs in a Nightclub)
You've been in a white, spa-like bathroom over and over. Try not to misunderstand us: It's dazzling. However, it's not your choice for a bathroom that feels like an extravagance escape.
The dark bathroom is a sensational jump into somewhat manly, yet firmly rich, design. "Everyone likes a fresh white, spa-like bathroom, however only one out of every odd bathroom must be a spa," says interior designer Susan Ferrier of McAlpine House, whose has joined black bathroom design into her past undertakings. "Dark bathrooms are so sensational, which implies you're candidly moved. You don't have that dramatization in an all-white bathroom."
However, designers concur that executing an intense dark bathroom requests more idea than a can of dark paint. Take, for instance, the splendidly finished dark bathroom beneath in decorator Kate Rheinstein Brodsky's home, designed by James Shearron and Richard Bories, authors of the architecture firm Bories & Shearron.
Part of what makes a dark bathroom so sensational is the balance of dark surfaces with different tints, so fuse a couple of features of hues (like bright white) that are strikingly perceptible against the dark. (Furthermore, an all-dark bathroom can summon a feeling of claustrophobia.)
In the dark bathroom Shearron and Bories designed, that reflectivity was meshed into the design with a Urban Archaeology sink with glass and metal legs, fittings by Waterworks and dark glass cupboards with metal trim.
