Black is a bold, overwhelming color that needs lots of balancing and contrast. However, it is also sleek, sophisticated and highly formal. Depending on the kind of finish, it can also make your space look highly glamorous, glitzy and sleek. So further, we’ll be sharing 5 ways you can use black color schemes in your HDB interior designs.
1. Major surfaces
When you design most of the major surfaces in your HDB interior design in this particular color scheme, then prepare to balance it out with a bit of lightness. Black color absorbs light, so it can make a space look narrow, small and claustrophobic when used with too much reckless abandon. So if most of your vertical surfaces are dressed in black, make sure that the floor and ceiling are white to balance out its effect.
2. Statement pieces
A good way to make use of the boldness of black color is by using it only in the statement pieces of your interior design. For example, you can use it to highlight the statement wall alcove where you hang your favorite artwork. Or you can use it in the furniture – the centerpiece sectional looks great in such bold colors, or you can even opt for a full-black media wall!
3. Using shades of this color
You can create a visually dynamic interior design by using various shades of black to make an interesting surface palate. You can choose the fixtures to represent the darkest shades while the backdrop can be articulated in various light and dark tints that make the whole space look dynamic and cleverly designed.
4. Imbuing color contrast
Color contrast is another crucial aspect of using fully black color schemes. The best color contrast consists of tones that are completely diverse from the monotony of the black color. Red, teal and plum colors look gorgeous in contrast with this color. Don’t go for too bright colors like neons, yellows and even greens. Dull colors create a nice contrast against blacks.
5. Texture contrast
Using textures in different hues of black to make a cohesive and wholesome interior design is another great way to use this tint. Wall tiles with contrasting fixtures are an excellent way to execute this idea.
