Tips for designing bathrooms with dark colors

Following up on my earlier post on using dark colors in bathrooms, here are several more inspiration images which incorporate different palettes. The first bathroom utilizes a color palette ranging from dark gray to lighter gray. This gives the bathroom a feel of warmth and balance and the cabinetry surrounding the sinks functions almost as an accent wall.  The design feels rustic, clean and could be incorporated into several different styles.  The designer was able to add nine cabinets without it feeling too dark or cluttered.  It was important to select a neutral color for the floor that was lighter than the cabinets and gorgeous white bath also reflects the incoming light. 

The second bathroom features an even mix of grays with the ceiling being slightly darker and the sink lighter.  The sliding door is wide so enough to illuminate the space which is almost entirely dark and without a window. A large bright light is necessary to offset the darker colors as well.  The 3rd design also has enough natural light to offset the colors, which get progressively darker.  The white chair, mirror and sink function as accents.
