Sooo black bathrooms

Matching black bathroom for the bedroom. See what I mean about the lighting? I also hate subway tiles, they remind me of Flinders Street railway station. Not fussed about the copper fixtures either. And all the reno shows I've been watching are putting in Granite etc bench tops but an Australian show yesterday had a professional on that said it was bad to put the sink underneath as the surround can chip. Finally some one with sense. Personally I love the basin that sit on top and I love the oval greenish glass ones until I found out the price so porcelain will do.

Okay so it has a chandelier in a coffered (I had to use that word, just found out what it was) ceiling. Toilet - black, if you can't see it perfectly in that chandeliered light then how about daylight.  I can't even see if the lid is up or down and it must be down according to my Feng Shui book or your money goes down the drain. I do like the square pedestal bottom but the flushing handle, for sure I would crash into that every time I sat down but I would like it on the side. Love the basin, like the marble and love the legs, love the hand towell and the mirror.  But have you noticed something missing, like toilet roll so is this a bidet with a hot fan to dry the bits? A mystery so you see what I mean about black. 

Another black hole in space.  There are curtains on the left hiding the shower and there's no way our exs would not have missed peeing in the wrong direction. Love the wall paper and the mirror.  See what I mean about the basin sitting on top of the bench, more space. Don't know about the greenery, it looks cheap unless it is a de-smelling plant.  Noticed again, no toilet roll. Don't like the ultra slim pedestal, I have a feeling I would do untold damage to that and the corner of the bench top looks a might sharpish just right for a fat hip to hit. I have to give this one an epic fail.


Now I'm rather partial to these tiles though but I can hear my mother now giving the one decent piece of advice that turned out to be excellent.  Always have white on the bathroom floor because of the talcum powder.  She was right, unbelievable how far powder can fly and accumulate in corners.  Worse if you use baby cornstarch powder with aloe and you should use that since Talcum is crushed mineral and Johnson's baby powder just got pulled for having adulterated stuff in the talc. I have a small heater in the bathroom to warm up the bones and if the powder floats in there, the whole bathroom smells like baking scones. Now back to the tiles, I would love them in pearl and matt hint of palest pink, just a blush, nothing more kitsch than a hot pink bathroom or purple with a gold bath, I couldn't bring myself to post that.
Go to town in the comments except if I've insulted your purple bathroom. I know it's not yours Andrew, you're more the sultry lux crimson.

They are indeed very black. And not wheelchair friendly.
What is it with the no toilet paper thing? Unless of course it is a black roll on a black spindle and we just can't see it.
I suspect cleaning them would be a beast too. They would show every smear. Even without powder they would look grubby very quickly.
I like basins on top too. Much classier.

White, thank you!
Talcum powder is one of the reasons my mother is banned from staying here.
I wonder how you do a half flush with the toilet flushing handle.

Baby cornstarch powder with aloe? Where do I find that please?
I don't like any of those bathrooms, although there are black bathrooms I have seen and liked, also I have seen a gorgeous teal and white bathroom, I don't remember if I saved the pictures, but I'll have a look.
I don't like those basins sitting above the bench purely because I am SHORT and would have to stand on a stool to use them. They do look nice, some of them anyway.

El Chi and not high enough off the floor either. With visitors the other day I threw my toilet bubble in the shower recess but forgot. Almost broke both knees crashing too far down, luckily grabbed the handle on the wall and stopped the fall.

Andrew, how lovely, your mother is a powder fairy. No half flush so you'll have to do two half pees to make a whole one for the handle.

River, in the baby section, nice and soft to use and the aloe is great in summer.

According to Stanford Medical, It's really the ONLY reason this country's women live 10 years longer and weigh on average 42 lbs less than us.

(And by the way, it has absolutely NOTHING to do with genetics or some secret diet and really, EVERYTHING about "how" they eat.)

P.S, I said "HOW", and not "what"...
