Making Monochrome Work for You

08/06/2017 13:57

With the world still hooked on black and white bathrooms, there’s no better time to make the monochrome trend your own. This neutral colour palette adds character to stark and sterile spaces, giving you an end result that’s sophisticated and bespoke. It isn’t dictated by size or budget, which is why it works so well in en-suites and wet rooms. Our pick of monochrome products can be mixed and matched to help you inject little touches of luxury into your space. Here’s how you can use them to bring personality to your home.

Add interest to all-white areas

The great thing about monochrome is it never goes out of date or style. This timeless colour combo means creating a bold and dynamic look can be achieved by just being creative with everyday items.

Add interest to enclosures, toilets and vanities with cool brassware. Quirky black accessories like basin taps, shower packs and black flush plates are an eye-catching way to break up all-white areas.

Make it work for less: Siamp Segment Flush Plate, £95, Vibe Basin Mono with Click-Clack Waste, £175, Life 2 Drawer Unit, £495, Cubix Wall-Hung WC inc. Soft-Close Seat, £215, Vibe Matt Black Shower Pack 1, £335, Life Tall Wall Unit, £345

Shape and mould your space

When large bathrooms start to feel sparse, adding black accessories will conceal excess space and draw attention to different parts of the room. Contrasting enclosures like the Black L-Shaped Walk-In, slate shower trays and statement radiators all bring structure to bare walls and corners.

On the other hand, you can create the illusion of space with white tiles in light-reflective materials like glazed ceramic and porcelain. The golden rule to remember is: white reflects, black absorbs.

Make it work luxury style: Alide Designer Radiator – Anthracite, £425, Black L-Shaped Walk-In Enclosure, from £495, Black Slate-Effect Shower Tray, from £465, Minimo Glazed Porcelain Tile – Bianco, £55 per box (10 tiles)

Create a centre stage washing area

Monochrome doesn’t have to mean chequered floors. If you're looking for something different, a black and white freestanding bath creates a luxury washing space worthy of a boutique hotel.

Matt black fixtures against white baths create a striking juxtaposition. Our freestanding Vibe Tap against our Graphite Bath shows how you can layer the colours for all-out drama.

Make it work designer style: Vibe Freestanding Bath Shower Mixer, £815, Graphite Stone Luxury Freestanding Bath, £2,295

Don’t forget, monochrome style also doesn’t have to mean black and white. Soften this trend to your taste with dark grey hues and cosy creams.
