I love black and white tile bathrooms. While it was definitely on my list to incorporate into our house, I didn't want to put it everywhere. Little buddy's bathroom was the perfect spot to feature black and white colors. One thing I love about this combination is the neutrality, yet it is so stylish. Plus, it can grow with him over the years.
We did give him is own bathroom. We figured we wouldn't sentence him to sharing with his sisters. However, the down side is the bathroom is smaller. But he doesn't care, he is so happy to have his own bathroom!
Sliding Glass Doors
To save space we opted for these sliding glass shower doors. That way we didn't have to worry about a door swinging out into the bathroom. Devin and I installed these doors. The instructions to install these doors are super easy to follow. Just allow yourself at least 2 to 3 hours to install them.
I wanted his fixtures to be a little more modern. This line from Delta was just what we were looking for. Since I wanted this bathroom to grow with little buddy I added the shower head on the rail.
Black and White Tile Bathroom Floor
Let's talk about grout. The eye will tell you that we used 2 different colors of grout in our bathroom. But I actually just used the color Timberwolf by Mopei everywhere, even the floor. Timberwolf is a darker charcoal color. I was actually surprised how different it looks against the white and black. It gave me the contrast I wanted and it won't get dirty like a lighter grout.
The shower floor is 1" x 1" square tiles that we ran at a 45 degree angle. My tiler then cut in the fun diamonds in white. To mix the subway tile up a bit I ran his shower vertical instead of horizontal.
I have had a lot of people asking how well the black stays clean. Having had a white hex floor previously, and now a black hex floor, I would say they show the same amount of dirt. It does show dirt more than a floor with multiple colors in it. But so far I wouldn't say it is too bad.

White Oak Custom Vanity
His vanity is natural quarter sawn white oak. Foxwood Cabinetry made it for us. I added the wood element to the space to help warm it up a bit.
I went with a black metal mirror for a modern look. His light is black with a hint of gold to help tie the wood vanity together with the light.
His countertop is quartz. It is a new line from Daltile called Liberty Gold. The design in the quartz has greys and taupes making it the perfect match for his bathroom.
Now that we have been in the house for a bit. I decided to add a fun sponge wall treatment to Little buddies bathroom. See the full tutorial here.
