Black showering spaces for stylish, contemporary bathrooms

Three ways to successfully incorporate black shower trays into your bathroom design.

Modern, bold and luxurious, black shower trays add a stylish touch to all bathroom spaces, and can be introduced as a single pop of colour, or combined with other pieces in the same finish. Their strong personality fits perfectly into urban, industrial, and even vintage interiors. Complement black shower trays with black bathroom taps, basins and toilets, or for a subtle touch you can easily install black bathroom accessories to carry interest and focus around the room. Combining comfort and design, these three ideas for bathroom renovations will show how upgrading your showering space with black finishes can result in a sophisticated and contemporary space.


Let’s start with the most daring option; a completely black colour scheme. Elegant and incredibly modern, this colourway allows you to create an urban and cosmopolitan space incorporating all the main bathroom elements. From basins and toilets to taps and even black bathroom accessories such as Tempo, each chosen detail is considered and impeccably stunning. The slate-inspired Terran shower trays are available in more than 10 square and rectangular sizes. Manufactured in Stonex®, a blend of high quality resin and minerals, the shower trays feature a textured surface that is slip-resistant and durable.


If you wish to combine rich and intense colours, you will find that beige and coffee finishes work well with black shower trays, creating a soft urban character while providing a marked contrast from white. The Cratos shower trays are manufactured in Senceramic®, a unique mixture of high quality vitreous china and enamel. With a textured finish, it’s a slip-resistant and elegant option, allowing you to choose from five colours; Matt White, Beige, Coffee, Pearl and Onyx. To compliment your chosen shower tray, take a look at the Titanium Black Stella round handshower and black bathroom taps in the Insignia collection to match.


Black and white is a timeless combination that will add brightness and interest to the bathroom. Neutral tiles will give black bathroom accessories, such as Tempo, a light-coloured backdrop that will allow the black fixtures and fittings to pop. You can also consider adding functional lighting and mirrors to complement the natural light sources wherever possible. As pictured, it’s easy to achieve visual contrast with the warm, soft surface of the Modo basin in Matt White, combined with Naia black bathroom taps in Titanium Black.
