Basic black — it works as a chic wardrobe staple and as a striking bathroom accent, too. While you can deck out the walls or the floor in your fave shade, we just love the way black cabinets can really make a space pop (and keep stains hidden more easily — score!). But before you go picking out ebony wood finishes and inky paint hues, rest assured knowing that having an all-black vanity cabinet doesn't mean your washroom will be gloomy. Here are eight bathrooms with black cabinetry that you'll want to copy right now for a perfectly relaxing space.
1. Get creative and lose the cabinet hardware.
When tackling this Park City, Utah bathroom, Shea from Studio McGee did away with typical drawer hardware for the vanity cabinet, and opted for finger pull cutouts instead. The lack of pulls and knobs allows the gorgeous black cabinet design to speak for itself without any visual interruptions.

2. Use the same hue on the floor.
The black cabinetry in this Hollywood Hills bath designed by Joyce from JDP Interiors stands out beautifully thanks to the contrasting white walls, marble countertop and, of course, the black and white floor tile. Swoon!
3. Don't be afraid of black on black.
We forget how elegant monochrome can look sometimes. This handsome bathroom designed by Sean Anderson is masculine and polished, without feeling like the darkness of the walls and cabinet are overbearing.
4. A bouquet? Yes, please.
With an otherwise neutral color palette, you might feel the need to add a pop of color. Satisfy your urge, and brighten things up, with a vase of your favorite fresh blooms.
5. Think: His and Hers.
Master bathrooms often have two separate sinks with a sconce between them. However, this washroom designed by E. Interiors takes the his and hers layout to the next level with completely separate vanity cabinets. The saturated black cabinet finish and the brass hardware really stand out in this bright space, not to mention that one primping station even makes room for a vanity chair.
6. Ditch traditional cabinets.
We have Amber Interiors to thank for this chic black bathroom. The floating vanity with a coordinating shelf below makes an already jaw-dropping bathroom even more sophisticated. And the brass plumbing fixtures and concrete sink are icing on the cake.
7. Keep it simple.
Black bathroom cabinets have a way of suggesting opulence. But as you can see from blogger Coco Kelley's bathroom, even a simple vanity looks just as classy. We found a similar looking cabinet from Ikea for just $699.
8. Repurpose other furniture.
When it came time for interior designer Vanessa Francis to give her daughter's bathroom a makeover, she kept their existing vanity cabinet. With a little paint — Sherwin Williams "Inkwell" — and some new bronze hardware, this bathroom cabinet looks better than new.
