How to decorate a bedroom with black walls

Black is not a very common color to be found in most interior decors, especially when it comes to wall colors and especially in bedrooms. But, even so, black can be a very beautiful and bold accent color. There are lots of ways in which you can use black in the décor and still have an airy and bright bedroom.If you insist on painting all your bedroom’s walls black, then you should paint the ceiling white.

This way a balance will be created. As for the floor, you could use a soft rug or carpet to cover most of it. Since black is a very strong and dramatic color as well as a cold and dark one, you should use elements that add warmth to the décor in order to balance everything evenly and to end up with a cozy and inviting bedroom.

If, on the other hand, you want to have an accent wall in the bedroom and you choose black as a color for it, then making the room look airy and inviting will be easier. Black accent walls look especially nice when the rest of the walls and the ceiling are white. This way the contrast is stronger and the décor becomes elegant.

Black accent walls don’t have to be simple. It’s true that the effect would be dramatic without anything else but some simple patterns and maybe even some differences in textures won’t make it seem overwhelming. For example, you could opt for black wallpaper with modern prints and patterns.

And, of course, since black is a main color, you could easily turn the whole bedroom into a black and white space. You could alternate black walls with white walls, you could paint the ceiling white and the floor black and the furniture should feature the same combination of colors as well. Also, a few white-framed photos would look wonderful on a black wall.

But black can also be just one more color in your palette. It can even be used for the nursery décor. A black accent wall will only make the decorations and accessories stand out more and you can use other brighter colors to get a cheerful décor.
