Our Black and White Bathroom Reveal!

Renovation

Today, I’m very excited to finally share our completed primary bathroom! It feels like a fulfillment of the black and white bathroom mood board I shared last year, but also very different in certain ways.

We took on this very big project over a year ago, and, while we knew it would take a while, we didn’t expect it would take quite so long.

We’ve been using the room since September, but had some things to finish up before showing it off—caulk, paint touchups, hanging art. When Covid hit us like a ton of bricks, work stopped, but now, we’ve finally completed every little detail, and I’m so excited to show it off.

So, without further adieu:

Bathroom Before and After

Love it??? I know you do 🙂

For some perspective, here is the bathroom we were working with before:

Before and After: Primary Bathroom

And the floor plan to give you an idea of just how much this space has changed:

Before we started, this wasn’t a true primary suite—the bathroom was off a small hallway that had an office at the end (soon to be a closet). We removed that hallway, with all of its tiny closets, to create a nice big ensuite.

A Dreamy Black and White Bathroom

Would you go bold with a black bathtub? We're in love with ours! Click through to see more from our black and white primary bathroom and shop every single source.

A Black Bathtub

My favorite part of this space has to be the tub. Even though I wasn’t always a big bath person, I really wanted a pretty tub. Dustin was skeptical and worried that I’d never used it, but I’ve used it at least once a week! Having a nice tub was key I guess, because I’ve totally become a bath person.

Dustin was actually the one who chose a black tub. I was looking at this one in white when he saw that it came in black and got all excited. I was sold easily because I’d been seeing black tubs everywhere. It works so well in here with all of the other black accents.

Funny story, the plumbers were excited about it, too! When they unwrapped it, they couldn’t stop talking about it. They said all they do is install white tubs, so they were going crazy over the black, too.

Of course, the star of the show is this tub filler. It was a splurge but when I saw the shape I knew we had to make it work (we balanced with some saves in other areas). I especially love how it’s installed on profile so you can see that beautiful shape in contrast against the white tile.

Smart Shower

Moving into the shower, we went with something a little different: it’s a smart shower!

A unique pattern in our white tile, a teak ceiling, and a smart shower—oh my! All of those elements combine into one sexy shower. Click to see the rest of our black and white bathroom and shop every single source.

We hate reaching into a shower to turn it on and getting splashed with cold water. With the smart shower, we can turn it on from our phones or tell Alexa to turn on the shower (we programmed presets for both shower heads as well as one or the other to turn on).

A smart shower is a great way to avoid that cold blast when you turn on the shower. Click to see the rest of our black and white bathroom.

It alerts us when the water is up to temp, so we never get into a cold shower. It was a bit of a splurge, but is such a luxury and makes us so happy. Plus, it even says “Good Morning Darcy” when I turn on my preset!

We knew from the beginning that we wanted to go for black and white with some wood accents, but the teak ceiling was a pivot we made in the summer, and I couldn’t be happier with it. It really makes the room.

Toilet Area

On the other side of the room, we added a little surprise above the toilet: a secret shelf for toilet paper is hidden behind this print!

These are the kind of ideas I think (1) time and (2) DIY really make available. It’s a little cheeky and is definitely a unique addition to the room.

Our Vanity

Finally, we come to the vanity area. We went with this teak vanity to bring some wood down from the ceiling, but we topped it with this super budget-friendly countertop. I love the integrated sinks.

We matched the faucets to the dreamy tub filler to add some black to the vanity—this is a black and white bathroom, after all!

These midcentury modern sconces, black marble mirrors, and hand towel shelf make for such a chic view in our newly completed primary bathroom. Click to see more and shop every source.

Moving up, we put in these awesome bowtie sconces to bring in midcentury vibes, and thanks to some bad measuring on my part completely on purpose, we had to find narrow mirrors. Luckily, these marble mirrors fit perfectly.

Accented with a couple of prints, I think this area really came together and balances well with all the beauty on the other side.

What’s Next in the Bathroom?

The only small things we still have on our to-do list in this bathroom? Finishing a little bit of caulk (don’t look toooo closely), and adding a bit more storage.

As you might be able to tell, we intentionally left some space between the toilet and the vanity, where we are putting a shelf with some baskets for storage.

We’re also going to hang a floating shelf over those hooks above the tub to sneak in another storage spot for bubble bath, etc.

Both of those items are backordered, but we’ll share an update as soon as they’re here.
