Black skirting boards and doors can be exactly the contrast that an all-white interior needs. It adds a graphic element to the overall style of the home and makes the space more interesting.
2. Use black as a second dominant colour
Black looks amazing when paired with pink, white, grey and other contrasting colours Here, black is the second most-prevalent colour in the kitchen, and has been splashed across the kitchen cabinets, the recess of the island, on the ceiling as a contrasting colour and for the appliances. The result is contemporary and edgy.
3. Black in the bathroom is always a good idea
Black and white is a classic colour combination and perfect for creating a bathroom that will withstand the test of time. Black can be used any, from the floor tiles to the walls and cabinetry, as long as it’s paired with another, lighter colour.
4. Don’t be afraid of black walls
Don’t be afraid to paint your walls black, but be sure to use white for your ceiling and skirting boards. Not only does it make for a dramatic juxtaposition and contemporary design, but it will work for almost any style home, from coastal and bohemian to minimal or Scandi.
5. Try a feature wall
Love the look of black walls but worried about making an already small or dark homer darker? Try a black feature wall. Really make a statement by using the space as a gallery wall with black and white art or photos.

If you aren’t ready to fully commit to black walls, floors and tiles, then try adding black to your home by way of furniture and homewares. A black sofa, black table, black lamp, and black photos frames make this space look chic and inviting, without the permanent commitment.
