Ideas for a gothic-inspired bathroom

Black and monochrome work so well in the bathroom, creating a timeless look with bags of glamour.  Tiles and mosaics can be used to update walls and floors, along with a lick of paint; in the bathroom, porcelain and encaustics work really well.  Or, for a stand-out feature, why not make space for a Nero marble basin or statement vanity.


On the floor, porcelain ‘stone-effect’ tiles are a great option.  Designs like Indigenous’ Urban tile are hardwearing, easy to look after and, as they have a textured surface, they provide good grip underfoot. For a monochrome look, consider an encaustic tile; there are designs to suit all room styles, from smart checkerboards and geometric patterns, to classic curlicues.   Patterned encaustic tiles can also be used on the wall, to create a striking feature above a basin.  Or, for a luxe look, other options include Black Mother of Pearl mosaics, made from saltwater shells.

For a gothic look with added texture, explore Indigenous’ Fusion designs.  These wall tiles are made using a traditional method called ‘Bicottura’ – they’re fired several times after each coat of glaze is applied, until the final colour combination is complete.  This creates a rich glossy finish with contrasting speckling; monochrome designs include Black Asphalt and Black Night.

Nero marble is an incredibly elegant monochrome material, combining inky black stone with fine white veining.  To create a striking feature, combine Indigenous’ Nero basin with a rustic wood wash stand. Or, partner a white Stone Resin Basin with an elegant monochrome Bone Inlay Washstand, for an instant shot of glamour.
