Black wall painted rooms: 8 Ideal Interiors with Black Walls

Painting the walls or an entire room of your home in black may sound scary.  Lately we are seeing more fearless home owners that choose black paint to paint an entire room or one stand along wall.  They are choosing a more daring home decor for their homes.  In modern interior design results are not out of a text book anymore which means that there is no rule when it comes to decorating.  Rules are to be broken they say.  However, there are a few elements to consider when choosing black walls for your home.  Many of the best black rooms I’ve seen share a few decor style elements in common.  Light color floors and furniture, decent amount of incoming light, and contrasting wall art that stand out dramatically against the black walls.  For even a more soothing and cozy ambiance in a room, a black grass cloth wallpaper would be a great option.  A black grass cloth or seagrass wallpaper would create depth and a subtle sheen on the walls.  For a children room decor or for a kitchen design area, a chalkboard wall would be very suitable. Black wall painted rooms is a wonderful way to modernize a space.

  • I love black painted wall, several years ago I talked a French couple into doing a high gloss black powder room they immediately said YES, and it looked wonderful! I think it take s a certain person to see past the color black and see it as a real color!
