How To Integrate A Black Vanity Into The Bathroom Without Overdoing It

When used in interior design, black is an unconventional color, unlike white, beige or neutrals in general. There’s a fear of making the space too dark or small which prevents us from using this color to its full potential. The truth is black can be a very charming color, no matter where you use it. In the bathroom, a black vanity can look very chic and stylish and there are lots of other ways in which to introduce this color in here.

Although we encourage you to add black to your bathroom and home in general, there are a few things to consider before going all out. For instance, there are lots of different types of black and each one is special in its own way. Some blacks have a warm hue while others are coolers so look for these subtle differences in undertones when choosing your black bathroom features. In the case of a black bathroom vanity, for instance, these differences can also have something to do with the type of material or finish used.

If you’re concerned about the fact that too much black can make your bathroom look tiny, then perhaps you could add a large, wide mirror to your vanity. It’s a known trick that lets you lighten up a space and make it feel larger and more airy. Another concern could the fact that black makes spaces seem cool and gloomy. There’s an easy solution for this as well: add some wood or warm accent colors. For instance, if you have a black vanity, you could use wood on the floor or you could have a wood cabinet or some shelves.

There’s this nice symmetry and balance between all the black and white features in this bathroom

To avoid monotony, mix and match different materials and textures. A black bathroom vanity could contrast with a white wall or a white sink and this black and white theme can be repeated throughout the room in various forms. An idea would be to combine a variety of different tiles or to paint the walls an interesting color. Combine different textures or patterns to create focal points or choose a type of finish that makes your black vanity stand out. A glossy finish would have a bold impact while a matte one would look more minimalist.
