Bathroom | Paint it Black!

When we moved into our house in Denver, one of the first projects I completed was a DIY update of the upstairs bath.  This consisted of painting the walls and changing out lighting fixtures and the mirror. I made a surprising choice when it came to paint color - I chose black!  You better believe my mother did NOT understand... (love you, mom).

Here's a photo from my Instagram account that shows the before and after.  I think it turned out pretty great! My mom even liked it!

Here are a few more professional photos of black bathrooms for inspiration!

I love how so many of these black bathrooms are paired with crisp whites and classic brass fixtures - such a great combination!  Also, I love how so many include painted claw-foot tubs that are also black/grey.  We have a claw foot tub in our house, and now I'm tempted to paint it!

Quick tip: I learned through my own black paint experience that it's good to get a paint with a bit of a blue or purple undertone.  Click here for a great roundup of specific black paints from Design*Sponge!
