Following up on my tips for designing bathrooms with dark colors article, here are some inspiration images of primarily dark bathrooms for a project I'm working on in Soho. New Yorkers tend to shy away from primarily dark colors because space is often limited and clients usually want an interior to feel as large and open as possible. If you are nervous about utilizing dark tile, concrete or stone in the gray/ black family, a good place to start is a half bath or a parlor area if either of those options are available. A parlor area can function as an accent adjoining a bedroom to a bathroom, or a hallway to a bathroom. Natural materials such as wood, concrete, marble or limestone can offset the darker colors and bring warmth into the room. The bathroom fixtures can be lighter in color serving as an accent to the darker space.
