Comparable to the little black dress that’s been a staple in women’s wardrobes for years, the color black is also everlasting when it comes to the interior of your home! Black is a neutral that is timeless and is a great way to create an elegant, dramatic look. The color can have an immense impact in small or large doses without making the room feel too dark or dull.
Whether it’s a splash of black wallpaper on an accent wall, whether the color comes from a chandelier in your living room, or whether it is the backsplash in your kitchen, the onyx hue always looks striking.
To get a glimpse of how its charm can be used in your home, look below at the five ideas we’ve come up with!
When it comes to baseboards and crown molding, many people opt for a shade of white. Although white millwork is beautiful, there is something about black millwork that is unique, yet classic. Black millwork makes details come to life!
If you’re wanting something different and craving some contrast in your kitchen, boost it with a dark backsplash! Black subway tile is a great way to create a modern meets classic look. Another positive about black backsplash is that it’s extremely easy to keep clean if you tend to have frequent spills or splashes in the kitchen.
Using black wallpaper on an accent wall is a great way to add some class! This powder bath does a great job bringing in some warmth with the gold and brown vanity and sconces. The contrast of the gold and brown accents on the black wallpaper screams sophistication!
Using a dark floor adds instant drama to a space. We love black hardwood floors with crisp white walls for a classic look, but you can find black flooring in other materials such as ceramic tile, travertine or even marble. Black flooring is an easy way to instantly dress up your home!
If you’re not ready to commit to black walls or black kitchen cabinets, use black in your light fixtures. Using a dark chandelier like the one in this living room creates a bold look. The chandelier instantly draws your eye up and becomes the focal point in the room. The color black makes a major statement, especially in lighting!
