7 Black Interior Design Ideas

7 Black Interior Design Ideas

A home will often resemble the personality of the homeowner, so making a bold statement with your design choices is a great way to really make your space your own. Interiors that make use of a black colour scheme can lead to a particularly striking look.

If your interiors are in need of a dramatic or bold transformation, look no further! We’ve compiled a selection of stunning black interior ideas inspired by our new black range that is available in a selection of styles, including our classic industrial ceiling lighting.

Combine Black Walls With Black Furniture

This design is a powerful combination that ties the home together to create a jet black interior full of depth and luxury. The whole room becomes an eye-catching display of sophistication and class by infusing black walls with complementary black furniture.

Rather than creating a flat looking interior, black walls become the ideal backdrop for darker furniture, helping to bring out the different tones throughout the room. This design idea seeks not to disrupt the eye but leads it through the space with effortless transition and grace.

Pair Black With House Plants

Bring life to your home by melding black walls with house plants. This combination adds an element of warmth to the dark undertones of your home and softens the edges of any harshness created by darker colours.

House plants require a lot of love and effort to sustain them, and by using this interior to emphasise their existence, we promise that you won’t forget to water them again. You’ll also have a gorgeously decorated modern home for all your efforts!

While other black designs might try to achieve a more minimal look, this idea is sure to create a powerful contrast and imbue the space with organic combustion of colour.

Black and White Kitchen Design

Black might be a fairly obvious and safe choice for a kitchen, but there is plenty of scope to play around with contrasting colours to further elevate the look - a powerful contrast can make or break a kitchen.

A stunning dalmatian colour scheme of black and white is an especially classic look that makes the perfect backdrop for a range of eye-catching lights and other finishing touches.

This practical yet striking interior means your kitchen appliances will blend seamlessly into the space, creating a cohesive and professionally designed look.

Dramatic Black Ceilings

Reach for the stars by merging your walls with your ceilings. Often, ceilings are left unutilised and unloved, with a stark border between where the wall ends and the ceiling begins. However, this contemporary play on modern aesthetics offers a sense of endlessness around your home.

Let your guests succumb to the dramatic black ceilings as the sky expands and the room loses shape. Painting your ceilings a dark colour has an illusory effect; by optically expanding your space, you create a sense of openness that enhances this elegant and unrestrictive design.

Use Lighting for Warmth

A decadent black interior alongside industrial lighting will upgrade your interior to a whole new level.

With darkness engulfing your home, you need to ensure you have functional and stylish lighting to reach every corner. Our Brooklyn dome pendant lights are the perfect addition to any black interior as they can cast a warm glow over your space while also looking great in a wide range of interior styles.

Paired with our Vintage LED Edison Bulb old filament lamp these lights are sure to create the ideal ambience for your space.

With a selection of lighting from our new black range, we hope you take this chance to create a flawless interior that is both modern and bold!

Embracing Monochrome

Interior designers have used the monochromatic combination of black and white to create tension and evoke refinement for years. We have already mentioned the dalmatian kitchen, but how about you expand this timeless design by implementing monochrome to your other rooms?

This idea is sure to add a touch of class to every room and will allow for complete versatility throughout every season.

If you don’t want to restrict yourself to monochromatic furniture, you could also use accessories and utensils to elicit the same feelings.
