When new design trends come in play, sometimes, people get caught up in them that they give in and buy whatever it is that’s “in”.
There’s nothing wrong with that actually. In fact, recognizing trends and even applying them in your own lifestyle shows that you’re updated with whatever’s the “hottest”.
However, when designing a home, sometimes giving in to so many trends result to a myriad of themes, colors, and styles. Doing so could potentially make your once peaceful, collected, and organized home into a disorganized and visually chaotic space.
And we don’t want that. Luckily, there’s one way to ensure that we keep our home décor and furniture coherent—by using a classic color like black.
When your goal is to keep any space in your home to be neutral, black is the perfect and most elegant choice. In this article, we’ll talk about how you can decorate your home with black furniture.
Plan where to place your furniture.
Even if you’re not an interior designer, you need to use your creative juices to plan where it is best to place your furniture. Before you start on moving that heavy dresser or bulky table, take a look at your space and create a design. And no, you don’t have to use any computer programs for that. Any piece of paper (or an app if you like!) will do.
Choose a space where the walls and ceiling are neutral.
Your black furniture is a focal point on its own. For it to stand out more without making a space too overwhelming, make sure that you place it in an area where the walls and ceiling are painted in any neutral color. This is to ensure that this black piece of furniture will stand out without making the room feel small and cramped.
Also consider the flooring in such room. The floor needs to be in a light shade as well. However, it doesn’t need to match with the walls and ceiling. What matters is that all these shades will be enough to create a contrast without making the space too overwhelming and visually chaotic. Balance is key!
Let the natural light in through the windows.
Given that you have this classic black furniture, it’s best to let light in as much as possible. This will make any space airy and light while making the furniture stand out more. Think of the natural light as the spotlight—it makes the furniture be the focal point of your room or space.
Add complementing touches.
If you want to add some extra drama or character to your piece of furniture, you can opt to add smaller home décor pieces on the side. Whether it’s a beige or cream colored dried standing plant or some white frames, these complementing touches add character into the overall look.
With the right styling, black furniture can transform any space from simple to classy! What furniture do you plan to repaint with black?
