How to use black paint in your home

Black home décor adds sophistication and elegance. Painting a room black is a bold, but classic move, but it does require some forethought. Like any other deep shade, black can overpower a room. Here are some tips to get it just right!

 

Incorporate plenty of white – Black and white is a classic palette that never goes out of style. Keep it simple and add lots of white to balance things out. To keep things bright, we also recommend a lighter floor color.

As an accent wall – Even though black is a dark color it is still considered a neutral. An accent wall is an excellent choice. It will coordinate with nearly any other pop of color you choose to use in the room. We love the idea of a black wall in a dining room. Ooh, la, la!

Color your powder room black – If you really want to make a bold statement, try painting a half bath all black, or cover it in black wallpaper. A larger bathroom may be overpowered by all black walls. It’s all about balance. Consider the amount white in the room to counterbalance, and also the amount of natural and overhead light you have.
