Black Bathroom Ideas

Looking to give your bathroom a makeover? Black is a great go-to colour for any bathroom renovation especially if you’re bored of plain white ceramic!

Whether you’re looking to introduce one or two blackstatement pieces in your bathroom or you’re thinking of going all out to createa complete contemporary black finish, we’ve got plenty of inspiration to getyour project started.  


Basins and taps. Perhaps two of the most important practical features in a bathroom bar the toilet and shower, but they don’t have to look boring. Both black taps and black basins can add a wonderful touch of luxury to your bathroom, especially when paired together.

The size of your bathroom or ensuite will really determine the size of the basin you choose. With a range of beautiful curved oval basins perfect for a small ensuite or large rectangular basins, suited to a family bathroom we’ve got a black countertop basin for every need.

If you’re looking to create a black bathroom with one coordinating design then why not choose matching bath and basin taps, helping to create a sense of flow in your beautiful new bathroom.


Choosing a beautiful black shower might seem easy at first but it’s not always as straightforward as it may seem. First, you’ll need to choose whether you want a smart shower, power shower, digital shower, a basic electric shower or even a shower tower.

Once you have chosen the type of shower that best suits your needs then you can look at the different black finishes available and pick one to suit your gorgeous new bathroom.

Shower enclosures

A black shower screen or enclosure is a good idea as there are plenty to choose from that will match perfectly with a black shower.

Choose from a variety of different enclosure styles such as square, quadrant, or corner entry or if you’re just looking for a shower or wet room screen then you’ll find plenty of options from those with standard black frames to contemporary crittall glass screens.

Black painted baths

Designing a traditional black bathroom doesn’t have to be difficult. Let’s face it, not everyone dreams of a sleek black contemporary bathroom.

Available in both traditional and contemporary designs, you’re guaranteed to find a style of painted bath to suit your space and give your bathroom some personality.

Simple additions such as an elegant freestanding black painted bath can help you to achieve a beautiful black traditional bathroom. Paired with either a chrome or black freestanding tap, the traditional black bathroom of your dreams will be complete in no time.

Bathroom furniture

Bathroom furniture not only looks good but can provide a wealth of practical surface space and storage space too.

With furniture units available in a variety of sizes and styles, whether you’re looking for something to store your cosmetics, spare towels, or even toilet rolls we’ve got something guaranteed to fit the bill.

If you’re choosing black furniture for a family bathroom think about features such as soft-close doors and drawers, not only perfect in preventing loud bangs but also wonderful for keeping little fingers safe!


Heating your bathroom is essential if you want to keep it warm in the winter but deciding on how to heat it can be difficult. Both heated towel rails and radiators are great options and both are available in beautiful black designs.

Heated towel rails

Heated towel rails don’t just have to be practical they can be attractive too. The bathroom is perhaps one of the most difficult places to add your own personal style but with our range of gorgeous heated towel rails, you can easily bring true style and personality into your bathroom.


If you jump back ten to fifteen years radiators really weren’t the most stylish of objects but now you can get radiators that not only do a fantastic job of heating your home but ones that also create a beautiful statement feature in any room, even your bathroom!


A beautiful black bathroom can simply be created with some stylish floor or wall tiles, allowing you to lay down the groundwork for your luxurious new bathroom. Available in a range of sizes, styles, and finishes you’re guaranteed to find the right fit for your home.

When tiling a smaller bathroom, it’s generally a good idea not to fully tile in dark colours as this can have a negative impact on the feeling of spaciousness in the room. Instead, you could tile small areas such as around your shower space or behind the basin, to still get a beautiful black look without making your bathroom feel cold and claustrophobic.

Wall panels

Wall panels are a simple way of adding a touch of black to your bathroom. Perfect for shower enclosures, they can be installed quickly and easily, even by a DIY novice like myself! Featuring a smooth waterproof surface without any grouting, wall panels are easy to clean, making them the perfect choice for a busy family home. Simply wipe over with a soft cloth after showering.

Available in a range of shades and sizes finding the right wall panels for your bathroom won’t be difficult.


Any bathroom wouldn’t be complete without accessories and they’re perfect for adding a touch of your own style and personality. From towel rails and soap dispensers to pedal bins there are plenty of black options out there allowing you to add a stylish finishing touch to your new bathroom.

If you want to go all out with accessories and finishing touches, then why not consider adding some wall art? Perhaps choose a beautiful colourful painting with a black frame to add a splash of colour whilst still keeping in tune with your black theme.


For most bathrooms mirrors are an essential feature and are in most cases used just as much, if not more than your toilet! That’s why choosing a mirror for your black bathroom shouldn’t be a snap decision. Take the time to think about the size of mirror you’re looking for, whether you want it to include storage for all your small bathroom bits and bobs and whether you'll need it to have practicalities such as integrated shaving sockets or lighting.

Once you have decided on the practicalities of your mirror, now is the time to consider whether you want to continue with your black theme and choose a mirror with a black frame or whether to choose something frameless. Whichever option you choose, a mirror will be a perfect addition to your beautiful black bathroom.

How to add colour to a black bathroom?

If you’re thinking of renovating your bathroom but wondering whether you can mix colour into a black theme, the answer is yes. You can easily add a splash of colour to a black bathroom, and it’s doesn’t have to cost the earth. Simple additions such as colourful towels and bath mats in dark green, ochre, and pink work particularly well at complimenting a black bathroom. However, if you have a larger budget then why not consider a tiled or painted feature wall.
