Want to try something a little off-beat for your Boulder, CO, home or office? Feeling a tad rebellious, edgy? Or are you overstimulated by electronics and looking for a more meditative color scheme? Whatever your reasons may be, an alluring black could provide the look you’ve wanted.
But black can be tricky and has to be done exactly right. With over six decades in handling the most delicate blends, the pros at Jacobsen Brothers Painting can help you select the best black for your situation and apply it in a way that won’t overpower the room.
Here are some of the most popular ways to use black to add sophistication to your home or business:
One Kitchen Wall
Since white cabinets are still the most popular choice in kitchens, homeowners are looking for a way to pair a contemporary look with them. Black fits the bill. Try black gloss on one wall to give you the visual interest along with easy cleanup. Or, black chalkboard paint is another great idea for busy families who want to add an element of fun to their to-do list. Not sure you want it on the walls? Reverse it by using chic black on the cabinets and make the walls pop with color or white.
One Living Room Wall
Black can own a living room wall and look great doing it. By using it in a limited space, it won’t overpower the room and will add a dynamic dimension to it. Add any combination of mirrors, metals and whites to stand out against the black.
Living Room Cabinets
Using black as an accessory in the living room can add an element of rest to the space. If you paint a entertainment center black, your black TV will disappear when it is turned off. When it is on, you will have an impression of being in a theatre with the black background.
Half a Wall
Not sure about committing a whole wall to black? If the room is small, you might consider using black for the bottom half or two-thirds, then use a wispy gray to finish the top of the wall. With a white ceiling, the effect works to open the space, helping the eye move up and into the larger white space. It can be an engaging space when you are finished, and very attractive.
One Bedroom Wall
Another great impression black can make is on the wall at the head of the bed. Adding more than a little restful aura, black is calming and beautiful in this setting. Use a white duvet and white walls to complete the crisp, elegant look.
Black doesn’t have to be limited to walls or trim. It can define a room by appearing only on the ceiling. This bold statement demands the perfect lighting fixture, such as an antique chandelier, to complement it to perfection.
