Black framed shower screens have fast become one of the top bathroom trends of 2020. We show you 5 different ways to use them to add style to your bathroom.
Here at Victoria Plum, we’ve always got our eye on the latest trends in home interiors. One of the biggest crazes of the year has been the rise of black framed shower screens and enclosures, which is exactly why we’ve expanded our range to include even more designs for bathrooms and ensuites of all sizes.
Why the trend for black framed shower screens?
One of the main reasons why black framed shower screens have proved so popular has been the continuing love for industrial style bathrooms. Indeed, back in 2018, when we exhibited at the Ideal Home Show in London, our Soft Industrial style bathroom was far and away one of our most popular.
Many homeowners are beginning to experiment with their metalwork and opting for alternative finishes. Matt black is one such finish that is proving incredibly popular—and this extends to showers, taps and even plumbing accessories, as included in our bestselling Spencer collection. If all this makes you want to take your bathroom back to black, check out these 5 ways to use black framed shower screens.
1. Go monochrome
The beauty of black framed shower screens is that you can quickly and easily freshen up a tired-looking or grubby looking shower bath with an on-trend look. Take a peek at this beautiful bathroom by Victoria Plum customer @ahouse_to_ourhome on Instagram.
This monochrome bathroom gets an on-trend update, with a stunning combination of classic white metro tiles and black accents in the form of the bath panels and radiator. Love this look? Discover more monochrome bathroom ideas right here at VictoriaPlum.com.
2. As minimalist as you like
The look can be as bold or as subtle as you like. To create a more minimalist look, choose a single framed screen rather than a design with crisscross frames.
This design is also available complete with a stone shower tray, creating a low level, walk in shower.
As you can see, black is fast becoming a popular choice for taps and showers, rather than the ever-present chrome. You'll find plenty of matching black fixtures (plus other specialist finishes) by browsing the Spencer collection from Mode Bathrooms.
3. Small space, big impact
Another stunning bathroom design on Instagram from Victoria Plum customer @our_first_home_at_number_3—we love the clever use of space. A black framed shower screen has been used to create a spacious, open plan walk in shower at the far end of the room.
As well as the stunning shower screen, feature tiles draw the eye, whilst a traditional toilet with black toilet seat and contemporary shower combine to add accent.

4. Get creative
Whilst many of the bathrooms we’ve looked at so far are based on monochrome palettes, black framed shower screens can easily work in bold and colourful settings.
Take this vibrant bathroom for example. Complete with the stunning Kiss Kiss Bam Bam shower panel from the Louise Dear collection, along with a matching "Green Bee" wall panel and freestanding bath from the Artist Collection, the enclosure frame complements the black that appears in the artwork.
5. High-tech luxury
Why limit your use to conventional bathrooms? Our range of black framed shower screens are so flexible, they can be used to create a whole range of looks and designs.
This bathroom, for example, features the very latest in digital and smart technology, complete with a Japanese style bidet toilet, bathroom TV and the SmarTap smart showering system, which integrates seamlessly with a wide range of smart home system.
We think you’ll agree, the overall effect is absolutely awe-inspiring.
