At first, it might seem that a black room would be overwhelming, but the all black interiors trend proves that, just like white, black can function as a blank canvas, welcoming creativity, style and, why not, color.
But you might take your time to do some research about this trend before starting your renovation. Since it’s not a easy style to follow, the tips can save you time and money.
Choose between matte and gloss
If your space is full of light, you will want to go with matte style paint. On the other hand, glossy paint can work very well in darker rooms, giving it a little bit of shine. If that’s the case, bear in mind that this kind of paint pairs very well with metal accessories.
2. Invest in different textures
To make your all-black room dynamic, choose different textures in black: tiles, painted wood or bricks and even the rugs and curtains can help composing the scenario. Remember: it doesn’t have to be boring because it’s all black.
3. Create a point of light
It could be the wood, the sink, accessories or a black-and-white pattern – a little bit of light will make the back stand out even more.
If you liked the idea and want to build your own all-black kitchen or bathroom, you can contact or visit us on 1854 West 4th Ave., Vancouver, BC. Our specialists will be happy to help you!
