Black and White Interior Design Ideas and Inspiration
Use Bold Black & White Patterns
Some color combinations are soft and mellow, but black and white isn’t one of them. Thanks to the high visual contrast, black and white is an inherently dramatic pairing. That makes black and white the perfect colors for using in bold patterns, whether it’s striped walls, graphic wallpaper, or decorative black and white plates on the wall. Minimalist or abstract black and white art is another way to heighten the visual drama with stark, eye-pleasing contrast.
Incorporate High-End Tile
Glazed black tiles are a beautiful addition to your kitchen, whether on the walls or in your flooring design. Striking yet sophisticated, glossy black tile transforms your kitchen into a chic, high-end cafe. (Can you say “espresso bar,” anyone?)
A similar option is black-and-white tiled flooring in a checkerboard style. Though often associated with kitchens and bathrooms, checkerboard tile can also be used in foyers, hallways, and living rooms.
Tile floors are great for your kitchen, basement, or bathroom — but when it comes to decorating your bedroom, we’d probably recommend something a little plusher under your feet (especially if you live in a cooler climate).
Try Black and White Carpeting
When we think about black home interiors, we usually picture something glossy and sleek, like a shiny tin ceiling (or those glazed tiles we were just talking about). But not everything has to be polished or mod.
Black and white can also be cozy, especially when incorporated into carpeting. From blocky geometric squares to curly fleur-de-lis designs, there are countless patterns and textures to choose from, bringing warmth and comfort into your space while building on your black and white motif.
