Have you recently installed your black-framed shower enclosure in your bathroom but the rest of your bathroom’s accessories seem to clash with it? Matching your new shower with the rest of your bathroom can seem like a tedious task but luckily, it’s not impossible!


Shower enclosures with black metal frames have been becoming more popular by the day and it’s easy to see why. With its industrial aesthetic and contrasting features, it offers a chic alternative to your standard frameless or chrome enclosures.


Here are seven ideas of bathrooms with black-framed showers to help inspire modern aesthetic in your home or office bathroom.

1. Match Your Mirror and Other Hardware

Rather than trying to match your new black-framed shower with your bathroom, try matching the rest of your bathroom with your shower.


Think of adding a black framed mirror to the bathroom, black faucets, and black towel rails. This way, you can add elements of black without taking the spotlight from your gorgeous shower enclosure.

2. Industrial Touch Among Natural Elements

If your bathroom has a more natural ambience consisting of a lot of green, woodsy elements, a black-framed shower will provide an industrial touch amongst it. It would provide a magnificent contrast between the elements.


Make sure your shower stands out by making your bathroom mostly contain wood and greener elements. Plants are a great addition to this bathroom style.

3. Black Frame with Frosted Glass

To create a simple, sophisticated look, add frosted glass to your black framed shower.

Think the black frames with the blurred glass will look dull?
Add some flowers! Bright coloured flowers or a soft pink would add a lovely touch of colour without making it look too cluttered.

Frosted glass is also perfect if you’d like a bit more privacy when you’re in the shower.

4. Black Frame with Brick Wall

To create a complete industrial aesthetic, try adding your black framed enclosure to a bathroom with brick walls. The bricks will complement the shower frames.

Adding a small framed windowpane will beautifully match the rest of the rectangular-shaped elements of the shower door frame and the walls.
