Another superb tip for using dark colored accents in your home interiors is by applying them through alternating surfaces. For example, if you decided to go for a navy-blue area rug for the floor, then the surface on top of it has to be lighter. After that, the visual surface on top of it can be dark and so forth. It’s a good way to retain a balance of light and dark tones in a space.

The back hued countertops and the navy-blue backsplash in this kitchen design is a great example of this tip.
