Creating monochrome magic in your bathroom – Architecture and Design

If you are looking for style inspiration for your bathroom, monochrome is the way to go.

Black and white with a touch of marble might just be the definition of timeless beauty. Our Monochrome Magic design is inspired by the enduring combination of black and white, brought to life in a sleek, classy bathroom that oozes sophistication. It pays ode to luxury hotels, and marble makes the perfect backdrop for the black tapware and accessories to make a statement. 

Why we love a monochromatic bathroom 

Black and white is a no-brainer in the design world and “the easiest way to make a statement”, says Caroma Design Expert, Mimi Puc. This bathroom will have you feeling like you’re relaxing in a five-star hotel bathroom every day. It really is a little bit of magic. 

How to create some Monochrome Magic in your bathroom 

The key elements you’ll need to recreate this Monochrome Magic design in your own home are: 

Tiles or Marble (real or faux)

Floor and wall tiles or a marble-look benchtop are both great ways to incorporate this feature in your bathroom. “The subtle veins in the marble bring movement and put a twist on the traditional black and white bathroom,” says Caroma Design Expert, Deborah De Jong.

While authentic marble is totally gorgeous, there are some great choices in faux marble surfaces, which bypass the cost and maintenance of the real thing. Ask your interior designer, builder or architect about what’s new and tried-and-true. 

Choose your bathroomware 

Our design experts recommend the Caroma Liano range, which includes matt black tapware, an essential element to achieve this look. The Liano range is defined by its signature architectural, minimalist style and timeless elegance. It features toilets, basins, baths, taps, showers and accessories, all boasting sharp symmetrical lines. The Liano range works harmoniously as a complete bathroom collection. 


With so many clean lines and functional materials, bathrooms run the risk of looking sterile and lacking in personality. Don’t forget to style your bathroom, but keep it simple; let the marble or black tapware be the feature. 

Plush towels, a rug and perhaps, a gorgeous scented candle are great ways to bringing some softness into a stark space. Pops of brass or gold accents look fabulous on a black and white backdrop and a potted orchid is always a winner for a sophisticated bathroom look.
