Dark interior is a daring choice and not all the room suits to that style. The reason is simple. Because the dark tone will have a “shrink” impact on space which make your room feel smaller. That is true in some cases, but with a careful plan, it makes an instant impact and exudes a self-assured personality.
Light walls may be classic, but deep, moody interiors can be equally timeless. Dark furniture silhouettes emerge subtly from the shadows, whilst more colorful accents seem to gain an electric effect. And if you are worried about the “shrinking” effect, inviting more natural light, having glass element or decorate with bright color can help offset the concern.
- Glass panels and large windows, when placed well, can expand even a miniscule space by opening up the room to the outside.
- Combining the dark interior theme with well contrasted furniture brings life to the room and creates an open, inviting space.
- Decorate the room with a splash of bright color or introduce indoor plants to bring life into the room.
- Be smart with fitting. Depending on your preferences, you can either go for matte fixtures or more metallic, brighter fixtures. Metallic fixtures look stunning against darker walls or cabinets.
No matter you prefer light or dark interior, ultimately, it comes down to preference. Some spaces may work better or worse with a dark interior versus a light interior, but you shouldn’t be afraid to experiment with colors, design, and light options to change up your spaces.
