Specialty Black Baths

black bathroom tile - volcanic stone shower - Architizer via AtticmagBlack bathroom tile has its pros and cons.

But one thing is for sure: black provides the elegance and drama whether the materials used are as humble as local stones or as sophisticated as a handmade glass mosaic. I’m not partial to a relief wall in a shower [top] because, let’s face it, it trap stuff on those mini-ledges and need to be scrubbed with a brush periodically. But if you’re going that way, the result is as wabi sabi as it gets. It helps to build in Nyanyi Beach, Bali where native volcanic stones are available to create a stunningly beautiful shower [top]. With such strong tropical light, it does makes sense.

black bathroom tile - Ann Sacks black glass mosaic bath - lepsiebyvanie via AtticmagGlass bathroom tile mosaics are another special material. One of the prettiest is Ann Sacks Chrysalis. What I like so much about this one is the irregularity, which I find both artful and far more romantic than the hard-edge grid created by 1-inch squares. The glittering effect comes at a price (about $75 per foot) but there’s an unforgettable quality about this tile that elevates a bathroom from lovely to memorable.
