Black works great when you have a space that’s full of square footage and natural light. It will make the room look bigger even with the use of the dark tones but also provide a bit of drama too.{found on theworkspdx}.

To have a black kitchen you don’t have to have the entire kitchen dipped in black, instead it can just set the tone while the white or stripes compliment it – like you see here. It’s such a happy and youthful energy!

Black & Floor

Maybe you should set the tone using a part of the room that isn’t focused on as much. A painted wooden floor – in black – will pop and make a statement unlike any other flooring option.

Black & Eclectic

Black & Contrast
