5 Must-See Photos of Black Interiors

Black is definitely back!


Choosing colors for your space is one of the most exciting parts of building a dream home. Depending on the look that you want to achieve, you can experiment with neutrals like gray or pastels to create a lively vibe! But have you ever considered coming home to black interiors?

While you can use black paint in the entertainment or music room, it can be quite difficult to envision an all-black kitchen or living area. This color may seem like a wildcard choice but it will definitely give your space a sleek and sophisticated look! Not convinced? Let these five photos do the talking:

Turn your dining area into a luxurious space by nailing this setup. Pair your dark walls with a wooden dining table, tufted dining chairs, and chic accessories like a sunburst mirror and chandelier. Add potted plants as pops of color.

A black living area can also be cozy and inviting! Add life to the space by opting for white and plush furniture pieces. Complete the look with a floor lamp and a sleek side table.

A dark bedroom can help set the mood for a good night's sleep. Balance the dark walls with white frames as wall accent and a light-colored rug. To make the bed even more inviting, choose big, fluffy pillows and dark sheets.

A black kitchen can create an impact—especially when paired with copper and wooden elements. Since dark colors can make it a bit hard to spot dirt, dust, and spills—make sure you clean the kitchen thoroughly after each meal preparation. 

Aside from black cabinets and walls in the kitchen, you may also work with black subway tiles and mosaic tiles as kitchen backsplash.
