Make a statement with the Colour of the month: BLACK!

Black is the color of coal, obsidian, and the night sky. It is the very darkest color, the result of the absence of or complete absorption of light. It is modern, elegant, and timeless and can make a dramatic statement when contrasted with stark white. Black can also create a very opulent look when paired with gold, copper or brass and a minimalistic and modern look when paired with silver. It is often thought of as dark or morbid but when used with warm colours black can give a room an air of sophistication and mystery.  Black can also be teamed up with any other colour for an eye popping look since it is the ultimate neutral! Black is the best color to use if you want to give more depth to other bright and strong colors and can get other colors to lift in a fantastic way.

Here are some great ideas for how to use black in your bathroom using products available at SaveMore Plumbing & Lighting!

Bathroom Design

Your bathroom can be a great place to incorporate black as a design feature. Black bathtubs, showers, and vanities can act as focal points so you can design the rest of your bathroom around them. With the Colour Me Tile-in Linear Drain Shower base from Valley, which was nominated for a best of the year award from Interior Design Magazine, you can add a pop of contrasting colour, a subdued grey, or a bright white via the customizable drain covers, just imagine a splash of bright pink or blue against black tile for a very contemporary look, you can also get a basin from the colour me series in either black or any one of the available colours to match your shower!  A black bathtub is also a great option for creating a focal point to design around; with the right décor you can create a very Haute Couture look for your bathroom. Black faucets are also a great accent piece and you have the option to create a stunning contrast by putting a black faucet against a bright or white wall and pairing it with a stylish white basin. You can also create a very sleek look by having a black basin with silver faucets, pairing a black basin with a black vanity gives a very streamlined feel to the bathroom. You can also add some very modern high tech features to your bathroom through the steam generators from Amerec and with the sleek black electronic control panel will blend perfectly with a décor that incorporates black in its design! You can fully control the steam generator with the electronic control, allowing you to have a wonderfully spa-like experience without leaving the comfort of your own bathroom.

Black can certainly become the centerpiece of your bathroom’s design if you know how to use it!
