Are you considering blackening your interior walls?
You can achieve an elegant look by following this hot interior painting trend.
Though bold, black paint is a classic color that goes well with most furniture and decor. To bring your home into the 21st century, use these tips for using black paint.
1) Colorize the Right Surfaces
First, decide which surfaces you want to paint black. Walls, trim, and doors can all be here.
However, if you don’t paint the proper surfaces, black paint can look too dark or uninviting. Before your interior painting crew starts painting, consider the following:
– Add a highlight. Instead of painting the entire room black, start with an accent.
Painting a small or large room black can add sophistication and depth.
Larger spaces benefit from a dark accent wall with three lighter walls in white or cream.
– Color the room’s tallest wall. An uneven ceiling and uneven walls are great opportunities to paint the loftiest wall in your room black. This is especially true when you paint lighter around windows.
– Paint the entire hallway or WC black. The color black can be a stunning and unexpected choice for small powder rooms or hallways. White or cream baseboards and trim will add much-needed contrast.
2) Black paint absorbs light, so make sure the area you are willing to paint is well-lit.
It can be from natural or artificial light. A dark room without enough light feels confining and boxy, not cozy.
Keep in mind the following:
– If the room is small and has only one window, make use of it. Try an ampler floor mirror or a wall mirror opposite the window. It will help open up the space and let in more natural light.
– In a small, non-windowed room (like a powder room or guest bath), use an overhead light or sconces with plenty of wattages.
– When painting a room black, use proper lighting. Higher wattage ceiling, wall, and floor lights can help. Keep your lights on dimmers all day to create the right mood. At night, you may prefer a darker, more relaxing atmosphere.
3) Contrast blend
Decor, furniture, and accents contrasting with black walls make a space look more cohesive and inviting. Here’s how to decorate with black walls:
– Reuse the black wall color in the room. It will help unify the space and make it appear larger.
Consider purchasing a large black piece of furniture. It will help your dining table, credenza, or bookcase blend in. Or use a rug or other small accents to tie it all together.
– Use contrasting colors to balance the dark hues (such as brighter throw pillows, a bold sofa, a cream headboard, white picture frames, a coffee table in contrasting coloring, etc.). It will lighten and warm a dark room.
