I knew I wanted to switch it up and create a classic black and white bathroom, after designing the rest of the home with white on white tones! Did you catch when I shared the guest bathroom upstairs? (Read it here!) We worked with a builder on our new construction home and designing the bathrooms was one of my favorite parts!
The Classic Black and White Kids Bathroom
It is Jack n’ Jill style bathroom, sandwiched between both boys’ bedrooms. A door closes off the toilet + shower. We typically have all the kids brush their teeth/faces in this room just for the convenience- so this room works hard for us.
I looked high and low for some modern clean black and white bathroom decor- I love all the contrast!
The Details on This Classic Black and White Bathroom
We went with Cosmos’ white quartz for the vanity. I LOVE white quartz. No staining, its just pure white and clean. Our handles are from Amerock. They are called “Black Rock”. The mirrors were a great find! I couldn’t believe the price.
The matte black bathroom sconces have a little industrial vibe.
Regrets In Our Black and White Kids Bathroom
The old view below is before the water damage in here (you can see Leo’s cactus wallpaper was up). Originally the bathroom grout was gray. I hated it. Such a mistake… it always looked dirty! There was no contrast. After we had water damage we had to replace the tile. So the second time around I went with bright white grout.
I know, I know, its a boys bathroom, but hear me out. I really wanted to keep the theme of this black and white bathroom. A pop of white would be great contrast! My contractor found this white grout called permagrout. He told me it would last through tough stains. We are 6 months in… so far, its pristine! If in a few years I need to take a wet vac to it, it’s a small space. But I actually don’t think that will happen.
The old view. Total mistake with the gray grout.
Their shower has basic subway tile and gray grout, with a small niche cut out. Basic but fun.
