When choosing your black fixtures, pay attention to the base material. A solid brass base material will provide lasting and reliable durability. Brass has a sturdy build in combination with its stylish aesthetics. Brass is very good at handling any hot water damage or any corrosive damage that may affect other materials used in fixtures such as faucets. Because of the hardness and durability of brass, it is preferable over softer metals.

One of the best ways to present this design is through a rustic bathroom design. The brass color as well as the durable base material are great matches for the design. Another good thing about brass is its versatility. Because so many fixtures can use brass as a base, it can be used in combination with other aspects of your bathroom. Some of these fixtures include vanities, sinks, shower heads and bathtubs to name a few.

Steel Base Material

Steel is another base material that is commonly used in high-end bathroom fixtures. It is also known for its durability and versatility. Steel is composed of mostly iron, a very reliable material. Most bathrooms incorporate steel for their chip and heat resistances as well, along with not requiring much maintenance or care either. If you find stainless steel bathroom accessories or fixtures, it is advised that you pick up those instead of of regular steel that can be subject to other damages. The design and build of steel fixtures offers a sleek and contemporary look and can add character and style to your bathroom. Consider steel for your base materials.

Complementary Black Accessories

Complementing your black bathroom fixtures with black bathroom accessories is a great way to keep your bathroom consistent and visually pleasing. Accessories such as toothbrush holders, toilet brush holders, soap dishes and other products can help your bathroom give off a sophisticated and stylish. A completely black set of bathroom accessories can be very effective at complementing your bathroom in general, especially if you are pairing your black accessories with a gray or white bathroom color scheme. They can essentially fit in any bathroom design however, due to their neutral coloring.

The contrast will help accentuate the better parts of your bathroom that you like to see. All black accessories are also very sleek in design, making them great for modern bathroom designs. Along with black accessories, black accents on fixtures are great additions to a bathroom design without needing to look for black accessories. For example, something small like a black handle on a toilet could break up the monotony of your current design. Overall, black is one of the most useful colors you can put in your bathroom design.

Final Note
