Black and white loos can be a timeless update. But the information issue. I’m sharing my sister’s toilet renovation and the design and style specifics that make it timeless.

My sister Elizabeth renovated her upstairs main toilet just ahead of the pandemic. I know 😬  and I’m only NOW having all-around to showing it to you. Photographing and styling a area for images requires Effort.

Nevertheless, my sweet nephew Markus and I not too long ago embellished his bed room so I experienced them both equally photographed on the same day. Continue to be tuned for that expose coming shortly.

Right before she moved in, the kitchen had been renovated in the Tuscan development and if you have been subsequent me for lots of several years, you will have viewed all the updates I’ve served her with.  Here’s a summary in case you skipped it.

Timeless Black & White Rest room Design and style Specifics

Here’s the ahead of:

We additional sconces as an alternative, which is typically preferable to a bar mild, whilst bar lights has occur a long way. Here’s a several great ones if you’re procuring for timeless self-importance lights.

In get to patch up the hole triggered by the removal of the gentle, we would have had to drywall this complete area, so we coated it up with a photograph of the loved ones alternatively. #designhack

Very same vanity right here | Very similar listed here, listed here & here

You are going to see, I’ve finished some sophisticated mixing of metals listed here by combining a chrome faucet and towel ring (also the shower fixtures), with a brass and black mirror, black sconces and brass knobs. If you uncover this much too challenging, don’t forget, you can adhere to a single steel, as long as it’s not all black. 

I really like her vainness so substantially! We uncovered it off-the-shelf (it came with the Carrara marble countertop) but the layout is just about identical to the custom made self-importance in my principal lavatory. It appears so substantially prettier (another depth to assume about) as a free of charge standing vainness – much more like a piece of furniture.

There is nothing at all and I necessarily mean nothing that is remaining with the styling I’ve accomplished. So prior to you say that there are no guys in this house when you see the towels stacked on the blue and white garden stool underneath the bathroom (below), just know that they were there for about an hour, haha.

If this was a powder home, clearly the decor could be permanent but this is the major bathroom.

The daisies in my back garden are just magnificent this 12 months. That’s exactly where this fresh new bouquet (earlier mentioned) arrived from:

Shall we depend the lots of unique undertones in her outdated toilet? Before you scroll below this photograph – Exam YOUR EYE – how lots of undertones can you precisely identify?


Now, let us take one more seem at the just after. Of course white subway tile produced an overall look in the shower surround, as it should really for the most timeless look.

Black & White Tile

You can see I also specified chrome for the plumbing fixtures. My most popular idea for you as we are deep into the black and white development is to prevent black plumbing interval. Or Primarily in a white bathroom since the contrast is as well superior. A lot more about that right here.

We also went with timeless black and white flooring tile with black grout so we really don’t require to worry about soiled grout.

If black grout will not get the job done for your rest room, here’s my 2nd selection.

Here’s a different seem at the mish mash of undertones in the old lavatory, which is all much too widespread in bogs (under). It is tricky more than enough to get white correct, why even hassle with beige or grey tile really.

This is the motive if all else fails and you really don’t know which tile to choose, pick out white or cream. This way you can adjust up the decor and paint colours anytime you want, like I did in my main lavatory final 12 months.

My Sister’s like of blue continues in this rest room. And indeed, the towels are beside the toilet. Chill out now 😉 I just wished to repeat the blue and white with the backyard stool below for the picture.

You will also detect we’re mixing designs below which is some thing I never normally recommend. Having said that Carrara marble is always superior in a white bathroom and I ongoing the sample mixing concept in the shower curtain and blue and white porcelain.

Here’s what the towel bar wall appears to be like:

Let us see the ahead of all over again shall we?

This black and white lavatory design and style is so excellent now and absolutely timeless. Recall, a attractive toilet or kitchen is all about the details.

Here’s an additional Scorching Idea. If you want sconces in your lavatory you will need to have them picked, alongside with the mirror Before your renovation commences so you can get the placement particularly right.

The other element I want you to note below, is that all the drawers have knobs, NOT pulls. I desire this glimpse because it is way cleaner. And, given that they are modest drawers, we don’t require pulls here. Also this vanity is not farmhouse, mainly because that is not the type of this residence either.
