Monochrome Bathroom Ideas

06 January 2020

Monochrome is simple, stylish and timeless. It’s a trend that will look good in all bathroom interiors and won’t need an update in a few seasons time when the colour trends start to shift. The classic contrast of black and white works beautifully with both understated and bold accompanying palettes to give spaces a refined, designer aesthetic. 

First and foremost we need our bathrooms to be functional but having a truly stylish space is fast becoming a crucial consideration. A versatile style choice, there are a number of different ways to successfully create a monochrome bathroom scheme without compromising on functionality or overpowering the space. To help you on your bathroom renovation journey, we have put together a few helpful tips on how to achieve a striking monochrome bathroom that will never tire or go out of date. 

Walls & Floors

Embrace monochrome on a large scale on your surfaces. Incorporating the black and white palette on the walls and floors of your bathroom is the perfect way of creating a standout statement, whilst staying on-trend. Whether you opt for a classic all-out black backdrop contrasted with white ceramics, or add some eye-catching detail with patterned tiling, using your walls and floors is the perfect starting point to help you achieve your ideal monochrome bathroom.  


The beauty of a monochrome scheme is that it can be complemented by any colour when it comes to your accessories. Don’t feel the need to stick strictly to black and white – adding in bright accents can be a great way of injecting some character and individuality into your bathroom and will also help to accentuate any crisp white ceramics.  This can also be a great way of giving your bathroom a quick, easy and affordable update, rather than having to completely redecorate or change any of your surfaces. Bright pops of mustard yellow and hints of greenery work particularly well when paired with a monochrome scheme and will be sure to wow any visitors. 

Fixtures and Fittings

Timeless and elegant, black and white works seamlessly in bathrooms of all shapes and sizes and can be introduced in many ways. Exuding a high-end and indulgent aesthetic, black fixtures and fittings sit beautifully against white surfaces to deliver a truly sophisticated monochrome look. Our Frame furniture range is the ideal choice for this style. The black framework of the furniture sits perfectly against our matching ceramic Frame basins, whilst working cohesively with the Hoxton Matt Black brassware, wastes and accessories. With the right products in mind, you can make a black and white bathroom the most standout room in the home. Whether it’s through the smallest of fixtures such as basin mixers, toilet roll holders or towel rails, or through statement pieces of furniture, there are endless ways you can create a monochrome bathroom look that will last for years to come.
