Room of the Week
This week’s Room of the Week is a very dark bathroom featuring jet black walls that form a great backdrop for the feature steel bath. Although the trend has been for beige, plain bathrooms we are increasingly seeing rooms where the interior decoration is more evolved and the room then becomes far more interesting. There are many ways to achieve this look by using tiles, wallpaper or paint.
If you don’t feel brave enough to choose a dark tile adding the black edge to your bathroom can still be achieved by using wallpaper. There are now many designs available that are suitable for use in a kitchen or bathroom where the humidity can affect any finish applied to the walls. This dark textured wallpaper is from Graham and Brown. Using a wallpaper to get the look is especially good if you aren’t quite sure of the look as it is much easier to redo than tiles!
If you do want to tile in a dark colour the result can be very dramatic and adds a very masculine tone to your bathroom. There are many dark tiles available on the market, I really like the Terranova range from Surface Tiles. Shown here in a 296x595mm size the uniformity of the tiles provide a simple block of darkness behind the chrome finish of the showers. This tile is available in six different sizes and also as a feature mosaic, this would be great to use in a shower cubicle.
This room was originally featured in the extensive galleries of House to Home. Take a look over at their website for room inspiration, and be sure to check back here every week to find which one of the rooms has been showcased.
