Introducing accents in your homes is usually the easiest task, as all you have to do is pick the brightest or boldest colour in the palette to make this interesting. However, very few people do this with black, so here are 5 ways you can introduce black accents in your homes:
1. Be bold in the kitchen
You need to be very careful with applying black accents in your kitchen. They have to be obvious without being very visually dominant. This kitchen design features a great way you can take inspiration from. The glossy black countertop creates a beautiful contrasting element against the otherwise neutral-hued colour scheme of the space, and is even complemented with the in-built oven!
2. Framing the study area
For all the semi-transparent spaces in your homes – such as the study area or the home office – that require a glass partition, you can use beautiful aluminum framing to introduce the black accents. The good thing about it is that you can even customize the frame, so you’ll have a lot of leeway with making the black colour as apparent or as reduced as possible.
3. Periphery elements in the bedroom
You must always let the dominant colour scheme take center stage in your bedrooms, so introducing the black accents can be especially challenging. However, you can use very small elements like your window frames and light fixtures to get them across nicely. The bedroom interior in this image does the same by using the spines in the venetian blinds and the track lights on the ceiling.
4. Vanities for the win
The bathroom – just like the kitchen – is very function oriented, but it has a lot more aesthetic leeway so it’s easy to articulate bold black accents in its ambiance. The trick is not being extremely obvious. You can do so in the form of vanity countertops and cabinet framing. You can even use the backsplash to execute this aesthetic as long as it’s very limited in size.
5. Dining nook furniture
The dining area is the most challenging to introduce bold black accents in because it is viable for a lot of visual clutter. Therefore, you have to make your backdrop as bright and minimalist as you can before introducing the black accents through the furniture. It can the table framing or the chair upholstery. Everything is a viable option.
