Black is a powerful color that represents sophistication, elegance, and style. It’s a classic color that many homeowners use for accenting throughout a living room. If you’ve thought about incorporating more black in your living room, there are ways to do it without making it feel like you’re trying to darken out any light.

Out of the 552,888 living rooms and 14 colors analyzed, 7.75 percent (or 42,847) have black as the dominant color.

Choosing Black as a Dominant Design Color

While the color black is classic and essential to many color schemes, it can also have a lot of negative associations. In interior design, black is intended to represent and evoke positive thoughts and feelings.

As you browse our gallery of living room designs, you will notice that many of them incorporate the color black. As you decide how to incorporate black into your living room, it’s a good idea to select a design style as well.

While black is used in some way in almost every living room design, the amount of color you use depends on the style and size of your living room.

For instance, if you have a small living room painting all of your walls black may make your living room even smaller and less inviting. Small living rooms benefit from lighter colors on the walls, but you could always paint a black accent wall or add plenty of black accents.

You can also put a lighter color on the top half of the wall and black on the bottom half to create the illusion of more space.

All-over black works best in larger living rooms, such as an Industrial or Modern style living rooms or even a Home Theater. The dark color can help to make a large living room feel and look more inviting.

Using Accent Colors

Whether you’re painting your walls black, filling your living room with black furniture, or even going for the Monochromatic look, you’ll want to use some accent colors to balance out the room.

One of the nice things about using black as a dominant design color is that all most colors look nice with black. White trim and even the right wood tones can make a black living room look sophisticated, warm, and inviting.

Painting accent colors help balance out a black living room, but you can also add some accent colors in rugs, drapes, artwork, or even furniture.
