Designing a bedroom in purely black decor is a bold choice. Doing this will make the bedroom feel very intimate, cozy, as well as a little bit smaller and darker. A way to decorate with black and keep the room bright and spacious is to mix in some white which we showcased in our post here: Black and White Bedroom Designs and Decor Ideas.
Moving onto pure black decor:
Decorating The Walls: There is the option of painting the walls in pure black. A way to make it look less flat and brutal is to add some texture. Whether this is by using textured wallpaper as seen in pictures (1) and (2) or by using textured painting techniques. See our post here for ideas and pictures:
Feature Pieces: In the bedroom the feature piece is the bed. It is the biggest piece of furniture in the room, so it becomes the focal point. Because of this, the color of the bed frame and bedding will have a real impact on the overall feel of the room. Check out the difference between having everything in black shown in photos (3) (4) and having white bedding and or bed frame seen in photos (5) (6). See how the color of the bed and bedding changes the feel of the room.
Looking at the Floors: If you want to keep to the pure black style then the best flooring options are dark hardwoods and tiles (7). Using a lighter color like a medium shade of grey or pine colored wooden flooring will brighten up the room a bit. If you have a light colored floor and want to keep with the black decor style, using black area rugs can help with this.
Other Black Bedroom Ideas and Decor Accessories: When hanging things to the walls you’ll want to use white, cream or light grey frames because darker frames will get lost on the dark walls. If you want to add an elegant chic twist to the bedroom, a black or white chandelier will do the trick as seen in picture (8). 1/2/3/4/5/6/7/8
