We recently let you in on some beautiful ways to use black interior paint around your home. Whether you want to go all-in by painting walls in your living room with black paint, or start small by painting your interior doors black, there are so many ways to use this dramatic color in your Portland, OR home.
Additionally, a black ceiling is a fun way to add some contrast to any room, and painting your lower kitchen cabinets black is an easy way to introduce the new trend of two-toned kitchen cabinets (while not worrying so much about kitchen spills). But we couldn’t stop there. Black interior paint is an often overlooked paint color choice, so we felt compelled to give you even more ways to use black interior paint.
So here are a few more creative painting ideas for black interior paint from Bluenote Painting. We hope you can find some inspiration.
We are used to seeing the trim in our homes painted white or left in a natural wood color. While these are fine and classic choices, many people are choosing to paint trim in a unique color. So why not black? Black trim serves as a great contrast against almost any color wall paint, especially against white walls. But don’t limit yourself to just black and white (although it is a classic combination); walls painted in a soft gray or blue will create a luxurious look when the trim is painted in a contrasting shade of black.
Painting the staircase may not be high on your list of home decorating ideas, but there’s no reason that it shouldn’t be. Black paint on your staircase adds depth to your home. You have the option of painting just the stairs or just the railing, or both. Again, black paint looks amazing in an all-white space, but it can also work with almost any other interior paint color. So don’t neglect your stairs! Painting this often-overlooked feature adds the finishing touch to your home.
Bookshelves and built-ins
Whether you have freestanding bookshelves or built-ins, painting the backs of your shelves is a great way to add some style while showing off your books and decor. Black paint will allow your shelf styling to truly be showcased rather than just disappearing into the background.
Last, but least, on our list of things to paint black is your fireplace mantle. The mantle is often a centerpiece for a living room, but it may not feel like it if you haven’t added interior paint to it. Black paint is an obvious choice for a piece like a mantle as it can add that necessary element of style that your living space demands. But don’t feel like you have to paint your entire mantle black; painting just the shelf piece or just the legs of the mantle may be enough to add a dazzling effect.
