  4. In the metropolitan bathroom, elegance comes in gray
| Designbest editorial staff


n the metropolitan bathroom, walls and floor are in different shades of gray; this is a space with formal precision. For a sophisticated look, shower and washbasin also have to be dark and this perfectly marries our “total black” scheme. Even so, the final outcome isn’t at all gloomy. In fact, a dramatic and bright bathroom is achieved with floor-to-ceiling glazing and a cleverly placed mirror, which is mounted next to the washbasin. In this way, sophisticated elegance is your new style. 


Our must-haves

An extra-large washbasin in black.

This sculptural washbasin is most imposing in black. An extra-large washbasin is really convenient, this version is full of character.

Square showerhead.

And this detail references the clean-cut geometry of the whole bathroom. What’s more, this extra-large showerhead doesn’t take away the pleasure of a lavish and invigorating rain jet.  


Our style notes

Walls in the colour anthracite.

Dark grey can be such a demanding colour, but a “streaky” version gives a touch of pizzazz and doesn’t depress us.

A floor-to-ceiling mirror.

This popular trick of the trade creates the illusion of movement and a much larger space. This mirror has a simple aesthetic, but clearly out of scale; this one goes from ceiling to floor.
