Black Walls can also Look Good in the Home. Learn how

Do you want to create the next big statement trend for your home? If so, then you must try with black walls. At the first look, it might seem like black walls will be depressing, would make space appear smaller or clash with the other elements in the room. Above all, rebellious teenagers choose this colour for their room.

However, if you have an idea of how to work with black coloured walls, then it will look classy and will add a unique touch to any room. Here, we have discussed how you can use this colour to create a bold and creative look. Even if you are not ready to take the risk with a style statement, it can be inspiring to see how some home designers have made a bold statement by using black colour.

Make use of colourful elements in the room: When the rest of the room’s design is not taken into consideration properly, black walls could close in the space and offer a bleak and dull vibe. However, black walls can be offset easily by adding more colourful pieces in the room, for example, a colourful bed.

You can add colour in the space in a different way. You can make use of bright, neon painted furniture to bring in some bold colour in the room. That creates an artsy and funky style. Or you can use white and lighter pieces like an oversized calendar or art pieces on the wall. A combination of a black wall and a large window helps in balancing out shadow and light in the area.

Choose accent walls: If you want to experiment with black walls, you don’t have to colour all the walls with this colour. Without overpowering the space, you can get a sleek and stately look by adding black colour in the room. The wall will go well with other black accents in the area, like the door and rug frame. Meanwhile, the test of the area can be made of light neutral shades so that the room does not appear dark.  Neutrals like grey sofa and the white floor look amazing in a room with black wall.

Use a white and black colour scheme: So that black does not look too much overpowering, another idea is to work with a black and white colour scheme. To enhance the look, you can place some white showpieces in front of the wall. This will balance the look. Adding all these elements will result in creating a well-balanced geometry in the area.

By making use of this idea, you could even have a black floor and wall, but make sure you balance it by using white furniture and sculptures. Also, you can add classical elements like a black and white painting for creating a stately and refined style.

Pair the black walls with an adjacent wall: Another idea is to pair the black wall with bold wallpaper or paint on the adjacent wall. This style is best when you pair a black-colored wall with silver wallpaper. A paintbrush design keeps the area look modern and fun.
