10 Reasons to paint the walls (and other places) in black

From the point of view of fashion, color black It is considered the most versatile color and easy to combine. Timeless, elegant and sophisticated, year after year we never tire of seeing how the black remains the undisputed king of the catwalks to the point of starring one of the most used expressions when talking about trends: "X is the new black" Interestingly, the same is not true when we speak in terms of interior decoration, where normally the use of color black for the wall it has been limited, as a rule, to decorate eminently masculine spaces.

Painting the walls black can seem like a wrong and macabre decision, but you do not need to be scared, with a little natural light and a selection of colorful accessories, the black It becomes one more decoration option with which you have never counted before and that will give you surprising results. Here we give you 10 reasons to do it:

1.- Because it will highlight all the objects that you place on a shelf with black color as a backdrop. Especially recommended option for the most orderly.


2.- Because you can use it to create an imaginary headboard by painting only that side of the wall and leaving the rest blank. It is so much the personality of the black, that it is enough a work of art, a small table and little more to create a shocking space.

3.- Because it gives character to the bathroom. If you have natural light in the bathroom do not be afraid to use it to give it elegance and sophistication, if on the contrary you do not have a window, as is common in most apartments and flats, choose to combine it with white tile in the lower third of the wall and leave the black for the rest. The environment will not look so overloaded.


4.- Because it helps you keep hidden the usual spots and marks of the passage area. You can try painting only the lower half of the wall in the entrance hall in black to give a lighter and more modern touch to the space.


5.- Because it provides dynamism applied to a wall of space playing in contrast to the rest. It is a nice, daring effect and it causes the attention to be diverted towards the objects located in it.


6. Because a black wall is the best base to show and highlight a gallery of photos and / or works of art that you have at home.
