Bedrooms in dark colors

Doubt - is it worth making out the bedroom in a dark color? It all depends on your preferences. If you need an interior in which you will easily fall asleep, wake up awake and rested - do not be afraid to defy the darkness.

Dark color benefits

Because of the stories that such interiors look gloomy and uncomfortable, most of us do not dare to design a bedroom in dark colors. This conventional wisdom does not have sufficient grounds. As well as the fact that the dark finish and filling take away air from the room and “steal” the space by visually shifting the walls. In fact, saturated surfaces serve as a favorable backdrop for bright neutral and contrasting accessories. The decor stands out, looks incredibly catchy and spectacular. And the background surfaces themselves seem to dissolve and "go" into the depths of the room. Even small bathrooms with dark walls seem much larger than they really are.

They perfectly “get along” with any color palettes.Bright, pastel and neutral tones remarkably “get along” with black, graphite, chocolate, dark blue, plum, myrtle. Being close, these colors favorably emphasize the beauty and expressiveness of each other. Dark shades are welcome guests in any interior. They are especially popular in the styles of art deco, modern, classic, hi-tech, neoclassic, loft, pop art.

Design rules for the bedroom in a dark color

Choosing similar tones for bedroom decoration, you should follow some rules:

  • Wallpaper for walls is better to choose monophonic, so that the patterns do not distract attention from significant details. Ornament will be appropriate only on the accent wall.
  • Furniture and accessories should contrast with the background. Brown or black walls are ideally set off by white or dairy furniture, and vice versa - when using dark furniture it is better to select light finishing materials - at least for an accent wall.
  • Bed linen is better to withstand in gentle pastel or neutral light shades. It will be another stroke, which will make the room easier, airier and more expressive. Textiles should be combined with other accents of the interior.
  • Dark walls and the floor will revive the white ceiling and stucco decoration - a variety of moldings, panels buazeri, columns and fireplaces. Light elements will come to the foreground, and darkened ones will move away and become less noticeable.
  • The bedroom in muted colors should be placed on the sunny side. A sufficient amount of light will enter the room, and it will not be too gloomy.
  • The choice of such an interior is fully justified in rooms with large panoramic windows, because the additional light here does not hurt.
  • Different lighting scenarios should be provided. Proper placement of a variety of floor lamps, spots and sconces can turn a dark room into a masterpiece of design art.

Combined colors in such combinations emphasize the virtues of each other.Black and white, muted color of moss and cherry, red and black, graphite and yellow, dark blue and pink look together incredibly stylish. The lack of smooth transitions can be corrected by entering the third color into the composition using patterns and ornaments. Achromatic interior looks too strict.

Bedroom design with dark ceiling

Many believe that dark colors are not appropriate in this case. Allegedly, they bring the ceiling closer, "eat up" the height of the rooms and make the room uncomfortable and gloomy.In fact, the ceiling decorated in this way is lost on the background of a white baguette, chandeliers and lamps. This effect is especially noticeable when using glossy options. Due to their reflective properties, the visual boundary between the indoor space and the coating is erased, and the ceiling becomes just bottomless. The dark top, complemented by accessories and textiles in similar colors, looks spectacularly against the background of light walls. Attention is shifting to the ceiling, and it acts as the main accent of the interior.
