40 creatively decorated black bedroom modelsOn December 2, 2021 by blog-admin
Initially, using black in decoration seems a risky choice. For many people, decorating with this color is synonymous with a dark and gothic environment, but if you pay attention you can see that black has a high dose of sophistication, sobriety and elegance that does not easily appear in other shades.
The black color also presents a lot of versatility, that is, it is used to create different types of environments, being able to compose relaxed and cheerful rooms, modern and contemporary rooms or also classic and serene rooms.
“We must think of black as a blackboard that needs to be drawn”, says interior designer Daiane Antinolfi, “the decorative objects, the complementary colors and the lighting will be the drawings”.
Black can be used as the main factor in the decoration of the room, being present on the walls and furniture, for example, or it can only appear in the details, drawing attention and highlighting certain points in the room.
10 tips to get the decor of a black room right
You must be careful when decorating a black room, avoiding the feeling of darkness in the environment. In addition, it is also necessary to know which elements can bring the desired personality to the room. Then, check out 10 tips from professionals that will help you when decorating black rooms.
1. Have black as the guiding thread of the project

By defining the presence of black in the environment, it becomes the focus of the project. It is from him that every detail of the room’s decoration will be chosen.
The architects of the NOP Arquitetura office , Philippe Nunes, Lívia Ornellas and Patrícia Pfeil, agree that, when chosen, black should be responsible for guiding decisions about the room’s decoration.
“The decision to use black in the decoration must be made right at the beginning of the project. In this way, he becomes the guiding principle of the project and based on him other choices will be made”, points out Ornellas.
2. Evaluate the space footage
Before starting to decorate, you need to know the space well, so always evaluate the room’s size. From there, it is possible to define where black will be present and where each object can be positioned.
“First we evaluated the size of the room, then we chose how this black could happen. Whether it will be in the base (wall, floor and ceiling) or in details and furniture”, says Philippe Nunes. Patricia Pfeil adds that “when the room is not so big, we opt for black in the woodwork or in other elements, avoiding the dark base.”
3. Define room uses

When decorating an environment, we always need to know what its uses and objectives will be, so that we can meet the space’s needs. When this environment is a black and dark room, this becomes even more important, as care is needed to meet all needs through the decoration.
“It is important to know exactly how to use the room. If it’s a place of study or reading, I reserve space for this task, where the lighting needs to be greater, and mix up the color palette to brighten that spot in the room. If it’s just an environment for relaxation and movies, the dark is freer”, suggests interior designer Daiane Antinolfi.
4. Explore lighting

Lighting is always a very important and decisive factor when decorating a room and this is amplified when the room in question is a black room. Lighting needs to be used, needs to find space and needs to be present, without going beyond the limits of decoration.
“In a black room, you can’t lack a very audacious lighting project, revealing the interesting points of the environment,” points out Daiane Antinolfi.
5. Choose complementary colors

Interior designer Daiane Antinolfi says that there are two basic ways to use colors, regardless of context: “tone on tone or opposite colors and the choice between one shape or another depends on the style of each client.”
When decorating a black room, we can think of tone on tone and use the palette that goes from black to white, passing through various shades of gray. Or we can also simply create a black and white decoration, creating a modern and uncluttered environment.
The other possibility is to choose a color opposite to black to incorporate into the decor. Colors like yellow, red and pink are great choices.
6. Use contemporary elements

A black bedroom is a bold choice that reflects personality. Therefore, decorating with contemporary and original elements is a good way to go when setting up the environment.
Create a modern, clean space using different mirrors, lamps and wallpaper, for example.
7. Expand space with mirrors

“The black room still struggles with the prejudice of the idea that the space will feel smaller than it actually is, but I prefer to believe that it will be an elegant and sophisticated room if the black is used with common sense”, says the architect Livia Ornelas. Still, if you think the room needs to be expanded slightly, mirrors can help.
Daiane Antinolfi says that “in the decor, mirrors are very welcome, as they expand the environment and also collaborate with sophistication.”
8. How to bring elegance and sophistication to the room

In addition to mirrors, other objects can be used to bring elegance and sophistication to a black room, such as chandeliers, curtains, pictures and frames, for example.
Likewise, the decor colors also define the room’s personality. “To bring elegance, I prefer to use neutral color palettes along with black, such as nude, gray, fendi and brown,” says Antinolfi
Another option is to compose with wood. “Joining black and wood is a guarantee of success”, guarantees Patrícia Pfeil.
9. How to bring relaxation and joy to the room

Nunes, Ornelas, Peal and Artinolfi agreed when they said that two factors are very important to bring relaxation and joy to a black room: colors and decorative objects.
Professionals highlight the vibrant shades of yellow, green, blue and pink as good options to create a fun room and point out the industrial decoration aspect as a good choice, bringing relaxation through unconventional elements.
10. How to make the room not look obscure

Philippe Nuns reaffirms the importance of lighting in a black room. “The black room must have effective lighting”, says the architect. It’s the lighting that will prevent the environment from becoming gothic and obscure, so bet on the presence of light points in the room.
In addition, according to Diane Artinolfi, care must be taken when using shades of red or purple in the decor, as these colors can bring the idea of Gothic to the room.
