5 Tips for designing a black and white bedroom

There are several things to keep in mind when designing striking black and white bedroom.

1. Black and white is a minimalistic color scheme

If you’re interested in black and white bedrooms, you’re probably a fan of minimalism as an interior design style. In that case, we recommend reading our detailed guide about Minimalistic Home Decor. It’ll provide you with more information about the style, including the typical materials used, layout and other core principles.

We have a feeling you’ll find it very useful and we’ll link to it again by the end of this post, so you won’t have to leave just now. In the meantime, a few more tips.

2. Add patterns and textures to break the monotony

Black and white doesn’t have to be monolithic in nature. In fact, since you’re limiting the color palette, it’s a good idea to offer the eye variety in other elements, namely patterns and textures. Ideas can include an interesting geometric wallpaper pattern (on all walls, or possibly just a single accent wall), black and white pillows of various textures, interesting curtains, and lushly textured rugs.

3. Your monochromatic design can have its shades

The contrast between white and black is the great allure of this pattern. However, you don’t have to ignore shade of gray altogether. It’s ok to mix the extremes of black and white with softer shades for a more varied – yet monochromatic – look.

4. It’s ok to use splashes of another color

In fact, in an otherwise monochromatic room, a splash of color can go a long way. It stands out right away, creating its own little focal point. So, be careful with where you place that color – this is where the eye will be drawn.

A great way to touch up your black and white decor with color is by adding a single colorful throw pillow. As an added bonus, you can easily change that color by using a different pillow cover – instantly transforming the look and feel of the room.

5. The room needs to feel relaxing – for you!

Some people will tell you that the contrast between white and black is not a good choice for a bedroom. After all, bedrooms need to be relaxing, right? However, this is actually a case of “different strokes”. What one person might find too stimulating, another can find entirely peaceful.

If a black and white pattern makes you feel right at home, you can absolutely choose that for your bedroom. Just go with what feels right for you.
