Design tips for black interior decor

by Donna Scumaci 10/31/2022

Kitchen with black cabinets

Have you ever been curious about adding dark hues to your home? While it can seem intimidating, adding black into your color scheme can be sharp and elegant. This article provides a simple guide to black interior design and how it can freshen up your home. 

Black ceilings

Paired with lighter hues, black creates a one-of-a-kind aesthetic. Black goes with many shades and can act as a neutral slate for distinct pieces. For example, a black ceiling in the dining room paired with a classy chandelier can make for a delightful dining atmosphere. It also highlights the elegance of the chandelier itself.  

Black kitchen

Adding a black color scheme to the kitchen can be tricky. The kitchen is usually a place of warmth, and adding too much black can overpower the area and make it feel more like a dark cave. Pair black keynotes of the space with other shades to create perfect balance. For example, black cabinetry paired with marble or silver designs in other areas of the kitchen. 

Black bathroom

Black themed bathrooms are sure to delight those who prefer a modern vibe. Black bathroom designs often include silver or gold. The black acts as an amplifier for sparkling metallics and other hues. For example, black marble sinks pair well with gray tiles. 

Black accent wall

Thinking about stepping it up a notch with black walls? A little goes a long way. Adding a black accent wall is the perfect way to keep your space balanced. The wall stands out in the space, but can be softened with lighter hued furniture to create a timeless aesthetic. 

Ready to create your dream home with sleek black themes? Consider dark accent walls and furniture that complement the space. Speak with your local interior design expert for more black design ideas.
