“You can have any color, as long as it’s black.” -Henry Ford
Ask anyone in any creative industry about the power of the color black and you can expect a stream of responses that sings the hue’s praises. Whether in fashion, beauty or the arts, no one can deny that black will always have its iconic place in terms of creative application thanks to its elegance, sophistication and effortless simplicity.
Of course, this also applies to interior decoration. While some may feel drawn to using the color to dress up their home, it’s actually a surefire hue to try as long as you stick to practical applications. Read below for all the reasons why black is still a good idea for your home.
It is easier to manage and apply. So many people are afraid to use black because of its boldness, but it’s actually easier to use in interior design because it can effortlessly tie up a space without any other need for extra bells and whistles. Consider this: what do you think is easiest to manage? A kitchen in black and white or a kitchen with multiple colors? With black, your margin for error is less because you don’t have to tinker with too many elements just to cause visual impact.
It adds classy drama anywhere. Black is the perfect color choice if you are looking for minimalist interiors due to its natural elegance and sophistication. Whether you use it over larger parts of a space or just add it as an accent, anything in this color can effortlessly add drama to anything without bordering on flashy and loud.
It can add depth to your space. Working with a limited area but want to get the most out of its design? Adding pops of black can trick the eyes into adding depth of space and focus, as it absorbs light rather than reflecting it. Applying this color is ideal if there’s a particular wall, area, or even accent in your home that you want the eyes to automatically go to.
