How to Decorate a Bedroom With Black Furniture

Black Furniture Bedroom

From bedframes to nightstands, bold black furniture makes any bedroom feel fresh and sophisticated. When set against light walls or floors, black furniture adds contrast perfect for most styles. Read on to learn some basic bedroom decor ideas for using black furniture.


Contrast a Black Nightstand With Colorful Pillows

In some spaces, black bedroom furniture may feel a little heavy. A small black nightstand is the perfect compromise between dense black pieces and simple black accents. Pair this with bright pops of color in throw pillows or bedding. Because black, white, and neutrals match with almost anything, you simply need to pick one accent color. From there, you can play with different patterns and shades.


Pair a Black Bedframe With Neutral Bedding

Black is strong color, but it doesn’t have to overshadow other pieces. Crisp neutrals like cream, khaki, white, and even light grey are perfect shades for bedding and throw pillows. Match wall art and other pieces to unify the look of your bedding while using a black bed as a background.


Complement Black Accents With Bold Patterns

Black bedframes are sophisticated and modern, especially when paired with crisp, airy colors. Keep the black furniture theme going by pairing it with chic black patterned pillows or shams. Polka dots, geometric patterns, or simple outlines can add symmetry to your bedroom. Whether you love Mid-Century or something a little more glam, you can find pillows that match your black furniture.


Use Black Furniture to Contrast With White Walls

Not thrilled with plain white walls? Put down the paint and use black furniture instead. A simple black bedframe, night stand, or decor breaks up the monotony by creating bold outlines that lead the eye around the room. From there, you can fill these outlines with fresh neutrals, light pops of color, or fun patterns.


Use Black Containers to Display Organic Touches

Plant life matches decor of any color. When you want to fill some space in your bedroom, consider adding a chic black planter with your favorite blooms. Black matches anything you’ll grow in your bedroom. If you have a green thumb to match your black furniture, fill a black bookshelf with plants and bright knickknacks too.


Feature Black-Finish Fixtures That Make a Statement

Add some black at your bedside for a chic look. A modern matte black wall sconce or night stand adds contrast to your bedroom, especially when paired with white walls and light bedding. You can find an array of black sconces and lamps that are easy to install and look great in any bedroom.
