Black bedroom decor might not always be everyone’s cup of morning tea or bedtime cocoa, but maybe we can change the minds of nonbelievers. Black bedrooms don’t have to be a dark and dingy affair, or feel closed in; black painted walls can be the backdrop to a much more vibrant set of coloured accessories. An all black bedroom furniture ensemble brings a slick look to a sleep space, which can be edged in cool modern lighting solutions, and complemented by decadent wallpapers. Alternating black and white walls or furniture pieces makes for a fresh monochrome aesthetic, which looks great warmed through with wood accents. Find inspiration for all this and more right here.

Wire up the wardrobe. Another way to get lots of light into the back of a dark room is by installing a closet with glass doors. By day, the glass will reflect natural light from the window. By night, the closet can be a lightbox, where LED strip lights glow from the garment rails and shelving. Edge other shelves in the room too, for an all around glow. | Visualizer: Dim Eysner.
If flat black feels to stark to you, then consider a textured feature wall. Don’t forget to throw some illumination over it to really pick out that detail. Keep the rest of the scheme white and woodtone so as not to overpower the strength of the dark wall. | Visualizer: Makhno.
Rich rustic. Black and rich woodtone make an ideal colour narrative for a rustic bedroom scheme. Bring in a chunky black metal pendant light and some natural woven baskets to shape the theme. | Visualizer: MirrorR Studio.
Light it up. If you’re going to have a black bedroom then you have to consider lighting as part of the plan. Install too little illumination and you might find yourself left in the shade. LED strip lights present the perfect solution for edging furniture; attach them along the perimeter of the headboard and around the bed base for a truly inviting and cosy look. Hang a modern chandelier low for extra drama. | Visualizer: Now Design.
Borrow light – and colour. This bedroom is opened up at the back by having a glass wall ensuite bathroom. This can contribute extra daylight via the bathroom window, or it can just be a way to introduce another colour. In this case the open ensuite adds a glowing woodtone vista to the scene. | Visualizer: Jeffrey Faranial.
Reflect light into dark coloured rooms with mirrors. Situate a stripe of mirror behind one or both bedside units. A floor to ceiling strip of glass will go a long way in bouncing extra natural light around your interior. | Visualizer: Kriss Maksymchuk.
Black makes a perfect backdrop. When walls are knocked back in black, you can go wild with colourful accessories, like this tricolour light installation. Black also makes a good base for standout furniture pieces like this unique painted bed. | Visualizer: Double Aye.
Create an inverted art gallery. Black and white photographic prints and paintings are an ideal accessory for a black room. Art galleries may typically present these on white walls but a black display wall looks twice as striking. | Designer: Davidsign.
