Black and White Bedroom Decorating Ideas

Arjun Kulkarni Oct 21, 2018
Want a bedroom that really stands out? Paint it black and white! These bedrooms are proving to be the latest craze among teenagers and couples.
Black and white looks chic, and you'll avoid all the time spent on deciding furniture colors. Bedroom decorations in black and white are especially a craze for teens and newlywed couples looking for a bit of the oomph factor in their love lives.
The two colors are the symbol of opposites and their co-existence. It is the symbol of complementary natures, proverbially the yin & yang of life. Their complementing nature is beautifully exhibited, as without each other, the room would look too monochromatic.
White makes the room look bigger than it is, while adding a few patches of black will add a dramatic contrast making the room look unique. Collectively, all these factors make this bedroom an option that you should definitely try out.

Furniture Ideas

This should ideally include everything, right from the flooring and walls to the furniture and accessories. If the walls are not already been painted, you can let your imagination run wild by designing the wall color in a more intricate way. Use furniture to add more variety.
You can have a black bed with dual-toned bed sheets, and zebra patterned blankets. Alternatively, you could have a pure black bed sheet with a white pillow-case. Polka dots on the two colors look great too. Also, use a pure white bed with a black headrest.
It is also very important to have the correct lampshades and lamp lighting. Ditch the bulbs and go for CFLs. They'll look great with such a bedroom and conserve energy too. Lampshades will have to be white, no choices there.
But the black lamp-stand will look pretty good with it. If you're a big fan of patterns, you can go for spotted lamp-stands. Hanging lights on the side of your bed looks good too.
IMO, chandeliers might not look good in such a setting. For me, angular is the way to go. The lampshades must be small and angular.
Wardrobes occupy a large part of the room, so they better not look woody. Get a black wardrobe with white doors or vice versa. Even though patterns are in fashion, they could be used prudently. Vary between hard colors and patterns as much as you can.
Among other accessories, you may put a chic black TV or a home theater, depending upon the size of your bedroom and your redecoration budget. You can have potted plants, which although green, lend something special to the place.
The crazier among us can also use the leafless plastic twigs. White curtains, black dressers and white flooring will look pretty.For the ones who want to go for the no-holds-barred sexy look, throw in a splash of darkish-maroon, or even better, a darker shade of violet.
So don't just restrict yourself to the 'good-old-fashioned cream-n-beige with golden lights'. Let the black and white shades add that bit of sophistication and uniqueness to your bedroom.
