Black Bedroom Interior Designs – Dramatic Yet Elegant

Given the fact that the bedroom is a private space usually perceived as a relaxing and serene environment, the colors associated with its interior are usually pastels, neutrals and soft shades. However, you can create a beautiful bedroom décor even with intimidating colors such as black. It’s uncommon to see a black bedroom but we have selected a few examples that show this type of décor can also be inviting and quite pleasant.

This bedroom has a white ceiling which, in most cases, would be an unnoticeable feature. However, in this case it stands out, especially in contrast with the black walls. The walls are not just black but also patterned. They are covered with elegant wallpaper. To create a uniform décor, the curtains are also black and the floors have a dark brown stain.

Here we have a bedroom with a less dramatic décor. The walls in this case are not black with dark grey. The floors, however, feature the same dark brown stain. The bed has a black frame and high headboard and the nightstands are also completely black. The pendant lamp matches the walls while the table lamps feature a very elegant combination or black and gold.

This bedroom has a décor based on strong contrasts. The ceiling is white and so are the floors. The bed has a black frame with black curtains that feature a white trim. The same combination can be seen throughout the room, in the case of the windows, wall decorations, furniture and even the bedding. It’s an interesting concept, very simple and yet very bold and striking.

Of course, you don’t necessarily have to give up all the other colors if you opt for black and a main element. This bedroom, for example, features a white ceiling and black walls. The bed also has a black frame and the nightstands are black as well. But the rest of the room is light and bright. The large windows let in lots of natural light while the beige furniture and rug lighten up the atmosphere as well.

A well-designed bedroom can be very relaxing and comfortable if decorated in black. This one, for example, looks like a secret hideout. It’s very dark because of the black walls and furniture but the grey rug and white bedding create some contrast. The en-suite bathroom lightens up the décor a little with its mostly white interior.
