How big is your black room?
Dark colors tend to convey the feeling that the room is smaller than it actually is. So, if you want to apply black in a small environment, the ideal is to use other colors, such as white, in your decoration. Likewise, wallpapers and colored objects can also be used so that the focus of the room is not completely turned to the elements in black color.
Remember that using custom furniture can also be a good idea to make better use of the space, as it allows you to find decoration solutions for this small space. However, if this possibility is not within your budget, the secret is to use elements of balance in your decor that can contribute to the feeling of a wider and more comfortable space, such as mirrors and light furniture.
On the other hand, if you have a larger room, you will have more freedom to work that color. Therefore, it is possible to find many references of large rooms that are completely black or that use decorative elements in other dark colors, such as wood and burnt cement, which contribute to the development of a luxurious and elegant decoration.

Invest in lighting your black bedroom
A good lighting project is essential to decorate your black room, both to create a cozier and less sober environment, and to facilitate your routine in the room. After all, black absorbs light and makes it harder to see objects at night.
Therefore, invest in creating points of light in your room, especially in places that will be used the most or that have some decorative detail that you want to highlight. For example, use LED spots and LED strips to illuminate headboards, frames and niches with decorative objects. Using lampshades, traditional or modern, can also contribute to ambient lighting.
Also, don’t forget to take advantage of the ceiling to light up your room. You can use spotlights and led rails in the plaster ceiling, or use plaster molding to produce a beautiful indirect lighting effect in your room. And don’t forget about the chandeliers, central lamps and suspended pendants, which much more than illuminate, they also decorate your room.
