Contrast Carefully

Contrast Carefully

Adding a matte black sink can complete your bold urban bathroom or it can be a surprising pop of black in your space. It all depends on the contrast of your bathroom design.

You’ll need to balance out the deep blacks with light colors not just around your sink but throughout the room. For example, if you add a black sink, keep the counters and/or walls a lighter tone.

Then, consider adding darker faucets and black floor tile in your shower, but keep the walls simple with an elegant wallpaper or a neutral color. For even more contrast, add a black bathtub if you have white floors and walls.

Add Some Color

Add Some Color

Black and white work well together (and they’re the easiest to contrast), but don’t be afraid to add other colors. Black works surprisingly well with wood cabinets, natural greens, and even fun tiles. Ease the contrast between black and white by adding a colorful vibe, but just remember to keep the color palette simple or the space will feel too loud.

Keep the Edges Soft

Keep the Edges Soft

Unless you are going for a modern look, black can feel cold and sterile if it’s surrounded by sharp edges. This is because sharp edges are not natural, and black feels calming when it’s accompanied by soft edges.

Black vessel sinks with rounded edges introduce a calm, smoky element to your bathroom. You can soften your décor easily with rounded soap dispensers or potted plants in curvy vases. You can also drape decorative towels over hard edges to soften them up.

With the tips on this list, your matte black dreams really can come true. Whether you are designing a luxury modern lavatory or a Pinterest-worthy farmhouse bathroom, matte black sinks give the unique flare your bathroom design needs.
