But don’t think that a monochrome checkerboard can’t perform in a modern setting. The squared shapes offer stability, giving you the freedom to pursue other decor elements that don’t have such defined shapes and can really go all out on contemporary bathroom pieces!
Black and white powder rooms still allow you to add a fair bit of color, and because of the neutral backdrop, every little drop of color makes a big visual impact. Maybe this is one of the biggest reasons for the popularity of the color scheme in bathrooms as well. You can just alter the accent additions (stuff like towels, floor mats and maybe even those flowers on the vanity) with changing seasonal trends to give the powder room a completely different vibe. One color that never seems to fail when coupled with black and white in the powder room is gold! When in doubt, turn to golden-tinted accessories to enliven and enrich the mundane powder room.
Placing a glass shower into a monochrome bathroom will open up the space even more, making it brighter and more transparent. If you feel like extending the checkered pattern beyond the flooring, add some to the walls as well and play with mixing the diagonal and straight checkerboard tiles.
While the beauty of tropical style seems all too obvious as summer arrives, Scandinavian-style bathrooms look great in every season, all year long! You really do not have to worry about a style change once winter knocks on the door with this one. Light-filled, airy and relaxing Scandinavian bathrooms draped in neutral hues feel cozy and refreshing even during the colder months, and you can combine this style with rustic elements, midcentury vanities or even a hint of Victorian glam to create a unique bathroom style of your own.
