    Black certainly makes a statement!

    It does have quite a glamourous look about it.

    Definitely black - easy to keep clean and look great beside sharp modern accessories.

    Why not go for black and white - more decorative tiles don't have to break the bank either.

    Black with glitter is striking!

    Thanks Douglas Watson Studio - I agree and think both colours are good at providing that feeling.

    I think its very subjective I like black in bathrooms but then I like white sanitary ware and white interiors.

    We find that both are incredibly popular and can create a great look when used together!

    Black looks good when new and un-used, but you need soft water, or the deposits from hard water will soon spoil the look.

    White tiles in a bathroom give that idea of space even though most bathrooms are small, there is also the cleanlook

    Although I particularly like those sparkly black tiles, and I do agree, sometimes black can give a glamorous feel to a room, I feel as though an all-black bathroom would make it feel significantly smaller, which is why I chose white. White can open up a room a little better, giving the impression that the room is a little bigger (despite being a nightmare when it comes to showing dirt).

    This bathroom we designed is mainly white with hints of black like the bathtub and a feature wall: the best of both worlds.

    Definitely the white, especially good to make smaller bathrooms appear larger than they are.

    I always find it hard to see in dark tiled bathrooms and it's the room you really want to see properly in. For that reason my vote is for white.

    I would say the white, especially if you have a small bathroom as it will make it feel a bigger and lighter.

    Black if it's big bathroom
    It would make it royal
    White for small bathroom to give impression its huge

    White is classic, but black is bolder and sleeker.
