15 Stunning Vintage Black and White Tiles for bathrooms

Black and white stenciled and mosaic tiles for a modern farmhouse styled bathroom and a classic vintage look

These stenciled black and white tiles are so eye catching.  In fact, some are mesmerizing.  These tiles are stylish as they’re both retro and contemporary at the same time.  I know, it sounds like a contradiction, but it’s not.

15 Vintage Black and white tiles for bathrooms

What’s old is new again..just reinvented.  These tiles are reminiscent of what you’d see during the Art Deco Era (1910-1939) as well as the Victorian Era (1837-1901), so they signal high quality, nostalgia and a touch of class.  They are both classic and classy.


15 black and white stenciled and vintage tiles for a retro, vintage or farmhouse styleUnlike those bygone eras, these tiles are primarily black and white (or black, white and gray), so they are less busy and less cluttered than in the past (where they used lots of bright colors).  Because they are monochromatic, they very easy to decorate with..  You can go for a black and white decor (or black/white/gray), or add in a bright or fun popular (via paint color or towels, accessories.  Virtually anything goes (and yes, I love Cole Porter).


The patterns tend to be geometric, delicate and often flow together.  These tiles and mosaics have stood the test of time.


There are really 2 different directions you can go with this:

1. Stenciled tile look for a vintage style or farmhouse decor.  these tiles by themselves don’t capture the full image…it’s only by arranging them together that the full pattern is revealed.  Yes, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.  And, if you have a larger space, you can get fun with them to create a border with a reverse white and black pattern.  Or, you could even try altering by rows.


2. A delicate mosaic style.  These usually come in a meshed sheet, so they are fairly easy to install.  These work particularly well in small spaces, especially small bathroom, powder rooms and even small entryways.  They are more classic and you really never need to worry about them going out of style.  Nowadays, many are upgrading from porcelain/ceramic tiles up to marble.  When it’s a small area, it doesn’t cost that much to upgrade and choose what you love.
