Film noir inspiration: choosing black interiors for your bathroom

Capture the best angle with frame furniture

Unapologetically bold yet incredibly simple, frame furniture will instantly inject modern style into your bathroom. Built using straight, clean lines with a striking matt black finish, it will add definition to your layout without overwhelming your space.

A frame basin unit has an artistic appeal, with an elegant, stripped-back black outline that contrasts against the white basin. Add a bit of personality by styling a few choice items on the exposed shelf underneath. Complete the look with a matching towel rail and shelving unit from the range, which have a ladder-style, industrial design.

The minimalistic nature of framed furniture makes it a great way to add black accents to a small bathroom, as the bare-bones inspired craftsmanship will draw the eye without overwhelming your layout.

 

Focus on the details

When looking to add black touches to your bathroom, think outside the box and get creative with the details. There are plenty of essential features and fittings in your bathroom that you can jazz up by choosing a black finish, instead of the standard silver or chrome. It’s an easy way to give your space a classy touch while maintaining a bright and airy feel.

Taps are one obvious feature in your bathroom that you can take to a whole new level by choosing a black finish. The Noir taps in the ELLE decoration range get creative with shapes, contrasting long, curved spouts against vintage-inspired cross head handles, adding subtle artsy detail.

Carry the look across your entire layout by choosing a Noir shower enclosure, which has a sleek, minimalist design framed by the range’s signature matt black lines. And don’t stop there – pay attention to the finer details and coordinate with a black shower head and valve. Choose white tiles and a white shower tray for the ultimate dramatic contrast.

Black bathroom accessories are essential if you want to create a bathroom that has a classy, polished feel. Look for simple pieces that feature black detailing, which will look bold and add timeless style to your layout. A framed black mirror has a gallery-like appeal – style a large rectangular mirror on an empty wall, or make a statement with a round mirror hung over the basin.

Carry the look across your layout by incorporating black accessories into each area of your bathroom. Coordinated essentials, like a matching soap dish, toilet brush, and toothbrush holder, will add a thoughtful touch, while placing framed pictures and ornaments on shelves will bring unique personality into your space.

Pick the perfect co-star with coordinating colours

There are a huge range of different colour that pair effortlessly with black, depending on the size of your layout and the atmosphere you want to create in your bathroom.

Black and white is always a trendy combination that can be styled to suit your layout and your sense of style. If you have a small bathroom, keep it light and airy with white walls and flooring contrasted against black furniture and accessories. This will make your space feel open while still allowing you to achieve a contemporary effect.

If it’s the industrial look you’re after, black flooring will instantly give your space a sophisticated atmosphere, especially when paired with simple black furniture and accessories. Be sure to incorporate lighter shades, such as soft grey or white walls, to avoid overwhelming your space.

If you’re keen to add a touch of colour to your black bathroom scheme, consider a tri-toned approach with white flooring, black furniture and accessories, and a feature wall in your choice of colour. Jungle green is an on-trend shade that looks especially sophisticated against matt black, while blue is a timeless choice for the bathroom.
