Charcoal is one of the most versatile hues on the colour palette, but unfortunately many homeowners are still very unsure how to use it because of its bold and statement-worthy presence. So today, we’ve compiled 5 attractive ways you can use this colour in your homes. Let’s take a look:
1. The media wall
If you want a media wall that is simple but impactful at the same time, then donning it in charismatic charcoal hues is an excellent way to go about it. This image shows that even when you’re minimal with the charcoal cladding and feature the barest designs on it, it can still feel really impactful.
2. The in-built furniture
Laminating your in-built furniture with charcoal hues can set a very bold tone for your home interiors. It’s a colour that has an instant impact, so even when you use it in moderation, it still ends up catching the eye a lot. Its articulation in the dining table island in this image is an excellent example of how to use it properly.
3. The wall panels
If you’ve got a plain old boring wall that you want to glam up with some bold accents, then charcoal paneling is a great way to do so. If you’re wondering how exactly you can do that, then take a look at this image as an example. The stripped wood and charcoal paneling across one of the feature walls creates a gorgeous backdrop for the rest of the room.
4. The backdrop
Charcoal backdrops are husky and charismatic, but makes them even more compelling is when you furnish their foreground with light-hued accessories. If you take a look at this dining area, you’ll see how the marble textured dining table top and its cream upholstered stools create such a stunning contrast against the charcoal backdrop that takes up the length of an entire wall.
5. The kitchen cabinets
Charcoal kitchen cabinets look extremely trendy –especially when they are finished in matt. Take a look at this glam contemporary interior design. It features a great articulation of the charcoal laminate on its kitchen cabinets, but what makes it feel so great is the perfect balance between the light and dark finishes. The countertops, backsplash, floor, and ceiling have all been carried out in white to balance the aesthetic.
