Black tile and white oak cabinetry…yes Please! My sons bathroom has turned out to be one of my favorite bathrooms in our entire house. Something about the neutral yet bold design has me all heart eyes over here.
Let’s start with the natural wood vanity. I designed this piece to resemble a dresser but function as a regular vanity. The middle “drawers” are actually cabinet doors which the hardware helps disguise. His cabinet is made from natural white oak and protected with this sealer. We used this product on all the white oak in my home to protect the wood but maintain the natural color. All my cabinets were built by RL Henrie Custom Cabinetry.

The mix of black hardware helps create that furniture feeling. I got the black knobs hammered knobs HERE and the black file drawer pulls HERE. Oh and the bottom of the cabinet pulls out as a stepping stool. Later in life as my son grows, this pull out stool can be flipped to create a drawer. Always thinking ahead!
The bathroom floor is a graphite (black) penny tile with frost grout. Frost is a light gray grout, but paired with the black tile it comes across white. I actually love the way this tile feels under foot… massage like.
We opted for a walk in shower instead of a tub in here. The shower walls are covered with a white picket tile that create a modern geometric look. Paired with a black grout it really echos the sharpie wall I recently finished. The full tutorial on How to create the “wallpaper look” with a sharpe is HERE.
All of the plumbing fixtures in his bathroom are matte black with modern silhouettes. The vanity light is my favorite. I love the introduction of the chrome that plays so well with the other metal accents in his bedroom. The round black mirror and oversized light bulbs break up all the sharpe angles on the wall and play off of the penny tile floor. You could totally switch this sconce vertically and trade out the bulbs for a whole different look! It also comes in black and brass!
