Black is the trendiest color to ever exist. It is always considered classy, sophisticated and timeless. But when it comes to interior designing, although it is no stranger to the world of interiors, a lot of people shy away from black because it gives a kind of macabre reputation.
In reality, it all depends on how you use it. Black is a dark neutral and goes with everything. The key is to understand how can you dress up and pull off the black wall in any room.
We typically steer clear of dark hues because we know they make the places look smaller or darker. So how to exactly implement blacks without overpowering the rest of the room décor?
We, at Master Paints, will share some tips with you to help you create those timeless looks with the classy black.
Always start with something small: When starting with this bold
neutral, small doses of change can have far-reaching effects. Experimenting
with small areas like around a fireplace, window or door trims, shelves etc.
will take you one step further in accepting this chic color around you.
Priming is the key: Some people stay away from black
paints because they think they cannot go back to a lighter shade when they
want. Here is a pro tip for them; use a primer! Yes, priming is the key when
you are moving from light to a medium or dark black or vice versa. Darker
primers (grey or deep based) are recommended for going from light shades to
black as they allow the black to cover in less coats.
Choose the right surface and
experiment: While playing with black, do think about patterns and
textures. A repetitive motif/pattern or texture on a black wall can give it the
drama and importance it was craving. Treat the wall like a piece of art,
experiment with gradation in high ceiling rooms to give that sense of unlimited
Light, finish and space: With black in house, make sure you
pick the right lighting and accessories to compliment your accent wall. As dark
colors give a receding look, a black accent wall with light surrounding walls
visually enlarges the space, and as a result, the rest of the space seems
brighter by comparison. Use a matt finish for a soft and less reflective
effect. But use a satin/eggshell finish in high traffic or busy activity areas.
5. Choose a contrasting décor: Finally, compliment the black wall with contrasting colors in décor, for example, if the room has this Master Paints Black - 7025 accent wall, compliment it with a butter cream colored couch, white framed wall hangings and a soft peach colored headboard to make the wall as well as the décor stand out and complement each other.
