Black and white makes a classic color scheme in almost any room and it’s a striking choice for half bathroom ideas. When decorating with a black color scheme, choose one or the other as the dominant color. Just large amounts of black and white look too busy, and your eye does not know where to rest. The effect is particularly disturbing in a small room and half baths tend to be small. The target for a 70 percent to 30 percent mix.
If your taste tends against formal appointments, use black and white to create elegant half bathroom ideas. Cover the walls with black and white wallpaper in a damask pattern or strip. Male your trim in high gloss white. Add a blank, painted vanity in either black or white, depending on the dominant color. If you choose black, top vanity with black granite and use black granite tiles on the floor.
For white paint, use white marble vanity top and the floor. Accessorize your half bathroom ideas with soft white hand towels similar to your monogram embroidered in black. Hang a petite crystal chandelier from the ceiling and hang an oval, gilded mirror over the sink. Relieve the black and white, and add interest to the room with a gilded-framed painting on the main wall.
