Check out the design gallery below of our favorite black bathroom countertop ideas (we love #8).
1. Black bathtub and Vanity
A black and white bathtub perfectly complements the colors in this bathroom with mosaic floor tile. Gray subway tile on the wall contrasts the black floating vanity and countertops with a large mirror hung on the wall. A gold pendant light hangs over the bathtub adding warmth to the space, along with a wood end table in the corner.
2. Glass Sink with A Black Bathroom Countertop
The dark glass bowl sink in this black bathroom with wall tile blends into its surroundings, creating a beautiful space. This bathroom does a fantastic job mixing textures and materials with tile walls, wood trim, and a glass sink, all while sticking with the black color scheme.
3. Black Granite Countertops With White Cabinets
This farmhouse-style bathroom has white cabinets with black handles matching the mirrors and sconces on the wall. A black granite countertop with white veining sits atop the cabinets, with black faucets continuing the farmhouse colors. Dark bathroom floors contrast the cabinets and match the countertops above.
4. White Bathroom Vanity with Black Countertops
The white bathroom vanity with black countertops matches the penny tile floors in this classic bathroom. A similar mosaic continues on the wall with white and black subway tile giving this space a traditional feel. Small tiles with mosaic patterns are a great way to evoke a traditional style in any room. To modernize this look, add shaker-style cabinets and contemporary lighting.
5. Black Marble with White Veining
If it’s within your budget, black marble with white veining is one of the most beautiful bathroom countertops. This high-end material gives an upgraded look to any space and matches the white cabinets with black handles in this bathroom. A bathroom is a perfect place to use more expensive materials like marble since the small size of the room means you’ll need less stone (and therefore will cost less). We took a similar approach when we installed herringbone gray tile during our laundry room renovation. Despite the increased cost, it didn’t hurt our budget since we needed less than 100 square feet of floor.
6. Neutral Bathroom with A Black Vanity
An open-concept shower with a glass panel connects to the black floating vanity in their neutral-color bathroom. Large grey tile in the floor creates continuity between the shower and the rest of the space, while lighting under the vanity and mirror brightens the room. Instead of drawers, this floating vanity features open shelving that holds towels.
7. Floating Black Countertops and Wall Tile
This black double vanity takes the idea of floating to a new level, creating a stunning visual effect by continuing the floor tile up the walls. While installations for floating vanities are more expensive, they can make a high-end look.
8. Vertical Wall Tile with Light Wood Accents
Vertical black tile on the walls complements the black marble countertops with white veins. In addition, a white oak vanity is installed with gold accents throughout the room to bring warmth into the space. Light woods are an excellent way to balance black tiles and create a sense of richness.
9. Floating Vanity with a White Bowl Sink
A white bowl sink sits on top of a black wood vanity creating contrast. Off-white vertical wood trim installed on the wall adds dimension to the space and gives it a neutral look.
10. Farmhouse Sinks and Rustic Shiplap
While using white farmhouse sinks may not be at the top of your list of black countertop ideas, this bathroom shows how it’s done! Rustic vertical shiplap panels on the vanity add to the country look of this space, while black countertops add a modern touch that contrasts the light colors.
11. Luxurious Black and White Bathroom Idea
Matching metal accents on the floating single vanity and mirror create a luxurious look in this powder room. The colors are accented by the geometric floor tiles featuring various shapes.
12. Gray Wall Tile with Black Quartz Countertop
Grey wall tile complements the black accents and countertops in this space. In addition, a faucet is installed directly into the wall tile for a seamless design. While the high-gloss countertop looks stunning, it can be challenging to clean since it will easily show water and fingerprints.
13. Black Sinks and White Marble
White marble wall tile creates the perfect backdrop for this bathroom’s black countertops and vanity. In addition, grey concrete sinks are installed on the vanity, complementing the veining in the marble. Using natural stone in a bathroom creates a spa-like feel in the comfort of your own home.
14. Mirrored Backsplash with Black Marble
A mirrored tile backsplash helps this small powder room feel larger and offers a unique design element. The brown floating vanity is finished with a black marble countertop with thick white veins leading to the sink. Rock crystals are displayed on the vanity as decor, bringing in earthy textures.
