The black and white bathroom decor matches different styles and never gets old. Its timeless way leaves everything with a classic and sophisticated touch while still being versatile. When mixed in the right measure, the black and white tones present no restrictions in their application; that is, you can harmonize them in any environment.
When we think about decorating our house, we hear that too white makes the bathroom cold and dull or that too black overloads and leaves the room more closed. But with the right style and proportion (and some tips from us), the decoration of your black and white bathroom will be something straightforward, fluid, and will have a fantastic result.
If you think it is not very easy to decorate a bathroom with these colors, know that there are some tips to ensure the balance of tones in this environment. The first step is to choose a style of decor, so you will have in mind the consistency between the items that will be part of that space and notions of the proportions appropriate for each color. Don’t forget that you can always use overtones and contrasts to liven up and give more life, add cozy details like wood and a little bit of the plants’ green, and vary in textures and prints to remove the monotony.
One of the important points when choosing the predominant shades in your black and white bathroom is the luminosity that space receives, be it natural or artificial. More closed and low light environments call for lighter colors, while large environments that have a good amount of natural light combine with both darker and lighter tones.
All trends and styles are possible when decorating your bathroom black and white, but there must be consistency with the decor of the rest of the house. For this, it is unnecessary to follow the same color palette or even use the same types of materials; the main care should be only to avoid huge shocks in the transition from other environments to the bathroom.

The motto of minimalist decor is “less is more.” This is a clean and functional style, which gives a sophisticated atmosphere to the environment through a few elements.

The retro or vintage decor allows you to use floors and/or tiles, hydraulic tiles, or whatever you like with prints and textures rescued from childhood memories or even older references. This touch of nostalgia helps to give more irreverence or make the environment cozier; everything will depend on your purposes.
