Many believe that the monochrome interior, made in black and white, looks too formal, boring, faceless and more suitable for the design of non-residential premises. In fact, this combination of colors is suitable for the design of any room. A clear contrast allows you to organize the space of the room, and the use of black and white in different proportions allows you to create a darker or brighter interior. If you plan to soften the black and white interior, you can add a little gray color to its design. Monochrome gamma is often used in the design of all rooms of an apartment or house to create a single design. Due to this, even the rooms with different style solutions create a single picture. This is especially true if you are developing a kitchen design studio.
Advantages and disadvantages of interiors in black and white
Also an important advantage of this color range is flexibility relative to other colors. Black and white are neutral, so integrating them into any color palette is absolutely no difficulty. Therefore, if you are already tired of the strict monochrome interior of the room, you can easily dilute it with bright accents (for example, putting up posters and photos on the walls or hanging pictures), decorative elements or textiles, for example, hanging brighter curtains. This allows you to implement almost any design ideas.
How to use black and white color in the interior
To the interior design, made in black and white, was not too heavy and more harmonious, you must adhere to certain rules:
- It is necessary to decide on what color in black and white you prefer. Indeed, with the same proportions, the interior looks unattractive and heterogeneous;
- To visually expand the space of the room, the main color is white. If the priority is the use of black color, then the room will become visually smaller, but at the same time warmer;
- From the point of view of psychology, black colors create a feeling of comfort and security, which is why a black and white scale with a predominance of black is often used in the design of a teenager's room;
- Accessories with chrome-plated details and doors with handles made in chrome fit perfectly into the black-and-white interior. Also, to soften the contrast white color can be replaced by gray.
Choosing doors, you should select their color so that they stand out against the walls. Curtains are selected with the same calculation.
When making such an interior is important to avoid mistakes in the details. Therefore, you need to carefully select accessories and decorative elements. Decorative elements can make the interior more romantic or classic. In addition, they can bring additional contrast.
The walls of the room can be decorated with different materials, depending on its functional purpose. For example, when decorating the walls in the bathroom and the working area in the kitchen, it is better to use ceramic tiles. Also, black and white tiles in these rooms can be decorated and the floor. If classical style is more preferable, then in the kitchen the floor can be decorated with the help of laminate, imitating the texture of natural wood.
We make the ceiling
In a black and white interior, the stretch ceiling looks most appropriate. The multilevel design with use of cloths of various color looks very beautiful. This ceiling allows you to zone the space. An extraordinary approach can also be used - with the help of photo printing technology a contrast pattern is applied on a black or white surface.
