When you think of Halloween, you may think of black cats, witches garbed in dark robes, or spooky things that go bump in the night. We’re musing on something even more daring: black bathroom tile so bewitching that it gives us goosebumps.
This bold look is captivating every day of the year. Take a peek at our favorite black bathrooms and conjure up some inspiration for your own home decor.
Black Marble-Look Bathroom Tile
“Startlingly beautiful” is perhaps the best way to describe black marble-look tile. The two black marble-look tile bathrooms above show this look’s design flexibility — the thickness of the veining as well as the tile size both influence just how dramatic and elegant a dark marble look can be.

Textured Black Bathroom Tile
Texture adds visual interest to monochromatic spaces, making textured tile a great option if you’re going for a black bathroom. In the photos above, we have one bathroom with a freeform brush texture and one with a rough, bumpy grid texture. Although completely different, both bathrooms create a unique look that’s anything but “basic black.”

Black Stone-Look Bathroom Tile
If you’re thinking black is too dark for your bathroom tile, you might consider going with black stone-look tile. Stone-look tile offers a “super” natural display. Even the stone looks that are considered black are lighter than most black tile options, yet have the same unmistakable elegance.

Black Subway Tile Bathroom
Subway tile is a traditional look; choosing black subway tile instead of white takes your look to a grand scale. While the bathroom in the first photo uses white grout and gold accents for a classic feel, the second bathroom uses a handsome gray grout and a three-fourths wall for a sophisticated, modern twist on a Victorian style.
Put a Hex on Your Black Bathroom
Offset any thoughts of black being “serious” with the playful nature of hexagon tiles.
While hexagonal mosaics have been a popular bathroom flooring choice since the 1920s, we’re now seeing larger black hexagon tiles appear in modern bathrooms with increasing frequency. Black hexagons with white grout show off the hexagon shape, and a mixture of colors and textures creates even more unique possibilities.
Black Bathroom Tile Mosaic
You might choose stacked mosaic rectangle tiles in matte black for a streamlined minimalist look (first photo above) or use all-over black penny round tiles for a modern vintage appearance (second photo above).
Imagine the shimmery black square mosaic tiles in the photo below with the light of a full moon shining on them through a window. That’s a statement to howl about!
Black Patterned Tile Bathroom
Introduce a unique design into your black bathroom with a tile pattern. There are more tile patterns to choose from than there are Halloween costumes, so let your imagination run wild!
We find the spider web-esque quality of the tile pattern in the photo above to be particularly fitting. (But don’t worry; no spiders here!)
Treat Yourself to Black Bathroom Tile
