If you feel like white interior paint is taking over every home and you’re trying to select paint colors for yours, then this is for you. While you can’t go wrong with white paint, the option might not be for everyone. There really isn’t a room that doesn’t look fresh and inviting painted in all white, but for those of you who want more ideas for your house paint color choices, then add some contrast to white interior paint with some touches of black paint.
We’re not suggesting you paint your living room entirely in black, but using black paint in just the right places will add the perfect amount depth and intrigue to your Portland, OR home.
Take a look at a few ways you can add touches of black paint to your list of home decorating ideas:
Paint the walls
It may seem overwhelming at first, but there are certain rooms that will look and feel amazing with black interior paint on all of the walls. A bedroom with plenty of sunlight painted black can be surprisingly refreshing and classy. Accessorize with light bedding, furniture and flowy curtains.
If you want to start smaller, a full or half bathroom painted black is a simpler place to add the effect. Mirrors in the bathroom help the room to feel lighter and more open.
Paint the ceiling
Many homeowners disregard the ceiling when they are choosing house colors, but you should always consider painting the ceiling a color, even if it is a fresh white. For a large room, black paint on the ceiling will create a cozy feeling. Contrast the walls with a beautiful white paint or even a pale pink for an extra fun look. A black ceiling works for any room in the house, as long as it is big enough to handle the dramatic feeling.
Paint your interior doors
Painting your interior doors is an excellent way to add style to your home. Painting even the simplest stock doors with black paint makes them look like an added architectural detail. Black paint also resists fingerprints. So if you have little ones running around your house, black paint will keep your doors looking clean. They look great with dark and light floors, too, so you really can’t go wrong with this painting tip.
Paint your kitchen cabinets
Painting kitchen cabinets is really in style for homes right now. Black painted kitchen cabinets look especially gorgeous on open cabinets or cabinets with glass fronts. The black paint adds an extra layer of class and really helps to display your dishes. Two-tone painted cabinets are the latest craze in kitchen design, so choose either the upper or lower cabinets to tackle first.
