The idea of a relaxing bathroom at home often evokes images of a spa-inspired setting where it is white and light blues that hold sway. Darker tones are often shunned in favor of pastel hues and the modern trend has been to add a few warm, wooden accents to complete the appeal of curated opulence.But have you ever thought about black in the bathroom? Even if you are not willing to commit to dark gray and black walls, tiles or accessories, maybe a stunning black bathtub in that sea of white would be more toy your taste! Underrated and often underused, the black bathtub is a showstopper that never fails.

The black pedestal or soaking tub takes up little space when compared to some of the more extravagant designs featured above and even if you have limited space in your bathroom or master bedroom (that is a fun choice indeed), these tubs fit in just fine. Once again, the presence of black does much more than just add visual contrast as it anchors the space and when coupled with painted window frame, floating shelves or even the vanity in similar shade, one can fashion a fabulous black and white background in the bathroom with ease.

Versatility of the Black Bathtub
The beautifully weathered cast iron tub, a vintage style delight for the Victorian bathroom in dim gray or that exquisite collector’s tub in Jet black; bathroom style is never a hindrance when picking a tub in black. While the choice of the tub depends on your personal taste, the ambiance of the bathroom and the accessories around it, there are times when a left-field choice that ushers in an unexpected pattern or texture can make all the difference.
