How to Achieve a Monochrome Bathroom Design, Manhattan, New York

A bathroom remodeling project gives you the opportunity to create your dream space and update your home with more modern design styles. The monochrome design is a popular choice in contemporary homes. Creating the perfect space with one color is easy if you know how to design it and choose complementary elements. 

A Guide to Monochrome Bathroom Remodeling

Choose Your Color

For a monochrome bathroom remodeling, you’ll be working with shades of black, white, and gray. These neutral colors create a style that’s both modern and timeless. Use them in different proportions to create your desired visual effect. An even balance of crisp white and rich black gives any space a sharp, clean look. A focus on pure white establishes an understated, elegant, spa-like feel for bathrooms large and small, while adding vivid accents of black creates drama and interest. For a warmer feel, try an ecru or ivory instead of bright white. Gray is also popular because it offers the same sophistication as white while being a little easier to keep clean. 

Choose Your Hardware & Plumbing Fixtures

Metal is a popular option in contemporary bathroom design. If your bathroom will be heavily black, consider stainless steel for your faucets and other fixtures. For white bathrooms, contrast the lighter color with black metal, wood, or copper. If your primary tone will be gray, just about any type of metal or wood will work. To keep it contemporary, opt for sleek, simple, or geometric hardware. 

Soften the Look

Monochrome rooms are striking, but the look usually needs to be softened or it may feel a little stark. Offset the simple design with pops of another color or texture. Plants in pots that match your hardware, fuzzy towels or bath mats in lively colors, and statement mirrors are all ways to soften the space and add interest. Beautiful quartz countertops are statement pieces that will combine the appearance of texture with durability and polish.
