Do you want a sense of drama or sharp contrast in a room? Then try using black accents for your cabinets, on your walls, or even your windows. A little black can add a bit of pop such as on a chalk wall or bathroom sink. And a lot of black such as the paint on the walls or kitchen cabinets makes the room so much more dramatic. Some worry that too much black seems “heavy”, but if you use your black accents wisely then it can actually allow you to use more light or bright colors as a contrast and have a brightening effect on the room. Black is considered one of the most versatile colors by designers and the trend now is to see it used more on exteriors, such as windows, railings, and roof colors. Wherever you put your black accent, it is sure to make a statement.
