Black and gray bedroom paint schemes are certainly popular right now. That’s because they work for so many people. There is a classic, regal look to the color that can work for both modern and more traditional bedrooms. The look is lighter than it was in years past as well, giving a fresh air to some older bedroom designs.
Gray mixes up the colors very well. If you are looking for a color that is very dark, black, or even red, then gray is a great option. It is very elegant. But if you don’t like that look, there are ways around that. You could paint your walls a white and then add a touch of black to it to make it a bit darker, or even to keep it the same color but lighter.
Adding a lighter-colored piece of artwork to the wall, on the other hand, can change the entire look of the room. You might consider photos of your family or your favorite places. Even a collage of photos of your pets can help break up the black and white. If you don’t like this idea, consider painting one wall a deep gray and the other a light gray.
Don’t forget the floor. It doesn’t have to be black. Consider putting up a colorful rug instead. Or add some fun flecks of black and white paint to the floors. This way, everything matches, and you get a very striking look.
The furniture in the room can also play a role. Go with some black but look at some fun neutral colors, such as beige or brown. Then top off the furniture with colorful accent rugs. Not only will this add color to the room, but it will also give it some texture as well.
Another thing that can add interest to the black and white bedroom is adding a rug. If you have a den, this would work best. If not, try putting up a black Ottoman. The Ottoman will not only add height to the legs but will draw the eye upward, toward the ceiling.
If you are looking for something to add a little more detail in the black and white bedroom, try using a mirror. If there isn’t a mirror, try to find one that goes all the way up. Some have lights underneath the mirror so you can see yourself while shaving or doing make up. These are great because they are not too big, so they won’t take over the space.
Finally, try putting up a small rug. This can add texture to the black and white room. If you haven’t already put one in, start with a smaller one, such as a coffee colored one. As you add more of them, you can add a little more detail and colors. This is one easy way to give your bedroom a nice update without having to change the entire bed linen set or anything else.
Gray and black look good together. It has been shown that both gray and black make the eyes appear larger. Try putting up a picture frame with two black panels and a gray frame on the other side. Make sure you have a nice neutral rug in the room to keep the gray from making the colors too extreme. Another idea is to paint one wall gray and the other black.
Black and white tend to be the best match for a gray shag area rug. This helps make the room feel more room and cozy. Since black and white tend to be cold colors, it is good to have a rug that will keep the room at a comfortable temperature. A black and white rug also works well in a guest bedroom or master bath. Since the rug is black, it will give the room an inviting feel.
One other thing you can do to add some black to your room is to add some black bedding. Since black is a very popular color to pair with gray, it will look stylish as well as warm. Bedding in black and white can also add some contrast. Choose something like a big shaggy rug that you can throw over your bed. You can also try to match it with some black sheets or a comforter.
The last thing you can do to make your gray shag bedroom look more black and white is to add some lamps. If you want, you can go with a black chandelier and matching candles. If you are a bit more modest, you can just have some black candles. It all depends on your personal style.
