Black and White Bedroom Ideas

You might not get the liberty to decorate the entire house as per your wish, but your bedroom is your territory! Black and white bedroom ideas shows the co-existence of the extreme natures that we all tend to possess. So go ahead and decorate your dream black and white bedroom with the help of the following ideas.

Black and White Bedroom Ideas For Teenage Girls
Teenage, the time to explore, experiment, evaluate, choose and create new trends! For a teenage girl to have a black and white bedroom, psychologically depicts her confronting the negative and positive. Here is what can be done to make the bedroom the best of its kind:

  • Walls: Well, whether you would want a wall colored white or black, completely depends on your choice and personality! If you are the extreme kind, then you could choose white, if you would like your walls bright, or black, if you like it dark and want to give your bedroom a cave like feel. You can also paint your walls in patterns and designs. For girls, a plain white wall with pitch black prints of flowers, butterflies, birds or stars, or black wall with snow white prints, would give your bedroom a wonderful look!
  • Flooring: Keep the flooring simple white or black. I would recommend white as it will give a base to the furniture and accessories you would keep in your bedroom. White would enhance them more efficiently. If you like the floor to be with designs, you can go for some designs that have a neutral impact on the furniture and accessories you would keep in your bedroom.
  • Furniture: Common sense that black and white bedroom should have black and white bedroom furniture. Choose the bed which has only one color and not both black and white. Why? Because the single color of bed would enhance the look of the black and white pattern bedding. The side tables, dressing table and study table can have a combination of both colors, but, it would be advisable if there is more of one color (white or black), and less of the other! For example, If your dressing table is all white, there is no harm in the knobs/handles being black!
  • Accessories: Accessories like bedding, curtains, lamps, carpets, paintings/pictures should be placed in such a way that the look of the bedroom is clear, not only in terms of 'cleanliness' but also the look and perception should be clean. Another point to be noted is that always choose the color of your accessory opposite to what the color of the base or background is. For example, if your walls are white, choose the curtain design which has more of black. If your side tables are white, a black lamp would look perfect on them!
Vintage Black and White Bedroom Ideas
Vintage black and white bedroom ideas are creatively very interesting! Why? Because they are a mixture of the old is gold classic theme, along with the ultra modern combination of black and white! Let's check what comes out of it!

  • Walls: Create a unique bedroom wall design with the classy toile print fabrics! These prints have been the all time favorite choice for centuries. Using these prints on your walls, will give you an 18th century French feel!
  • Flooring: Go for plain white base with black polka dots on it. You can also try a checked flooring with the combination of black and white, this would give your bedroom a feel of the mid century!
  • Furniture: Vintage furniture to go with a black and white bedroom should be well picked and well placed! Go for antique wood furniture having a metallic touch to it! Look for a beautiful chandelier, carved designs on the furniture, opt for a lot of arc designs to give your bedroom a vintage feel!
  • Accessories: Accessorize your vintage black and white bedroom with toile print curtains, if not toile, then a lot of floral prints would also do. Place fancy items like a vintage white jewelry box on the dressing table with black carvings, same goes for the lamps. Choose classy paintings and pictures while bedroom decorating and while placing the layouts. Choose various vases, cups, plates and ornate accessories to display in the room so that you not only feel, but live in your bedroom, the vintage way!
Modern Black and White Bedroom Ideas
The combination of these two colors, black and white, have always been the reason for some of the greatest interiors. Although the style and approach has changed from time to time, to give it a more modern appeal, the magic that these two colors create is just mesmerizing! Here are some modern black and white bedroom ideas:

  • Walls: To give your bedroom a modern yet classy feel, avoid designs and patterns on the walls to give the room a kind of uniformity. The wall color combinations of the main wall of the room can be colored in black and white horizontal stripes to make it stand out. But make sure that the rest of the wall is colored in one color only so that the accessories and the main wall stands out!
  • Flooring: Plain flooring looks best. Choose any color between black and white! In modern black and white bedrooms, the flooring enhances due to the texture/material used for flooring. Polished black/white hardwood flooring or black/white ceramic tiles flooring will give your bedroom a classy and modern feel!
  • Furniture: The furniture should be simple and classy. Avoid designs and carvings on the furniture if you want to give your bedroom a complete modern look! Italian furniture designs are best suited for modern bedrooms. Go for both, completely black and white furniture. Choose a wardrobe which has sliding doors, make sure your bedroom has furniture which has glossy looks, scratch resistance and clean finish to give your bedroom a neat and tidy feel.
  • Accessories: As I mentioned earlier, choose the accessories that complement the background/base. If the flooring is white, go for a black carpet on it. If the walls are white, accessorize them with black picture frames. If the side tables are white, go for black lamp shades. This combination will give your bedroom a minimal yet relaxing appeal.
I hope the above given information on black and white bedroom ideas, has helped you get a clear picture of how you want your bedroom to be. Use your creativity and judgment to come up with amazing ideas to decorate a bedroom with black and white, the evergreen combination of all times! All the best!
