Many people worry that their room may look Gothic and dark with black furniture, but it is easy to brighten a room.

Here we will explore tips for each room, we have made it easy to navigate this post by providing a separate sub-heading for each room. So, feel free to jump ahead to the room you are interested in decorating with black if you don’t want to read the whole post.
Like most people, you probably spend a large proportion of your time in the kitchen. For this reason, it is important you make sure it is an interior space which you enjoy.
The three core areas of your kitchen which you want to centre your design scheme on are the flooring, the kitchen units and your worktops. In the interest of keeping a balance in room it is not advisable to combine black units with a black worktop. And we advise matching the colour of your flooring with the colour of your worktops.
If you decide on using black units, we advise you to combine it with a light-coloured worktop such as a light-coloured quartz (such as Carrara quartz) or a light granite like Kashmir White. And if you decide to go with a black worktop and black flooring we advise to go with a light-coloured unit such as a light grey, off white or white. The beauty of choosing a black worktop is you can use items of black furniture elsewhere in your kitchen such as a black granite dining table or black chairs. A nice way to balance your room is to choose a black granite dining table in the same material as the worktops.
Star galaxy is amongst the most popular choice of granite to use for kitchen worktops as many people like the way light bounces of the beautiful copper flecks embedded in the black surface. If you are after a uniform black look Nero Assoluto, Nero Impala and Angola Black are the granites to choose. And if you want to go with a composite material black quartz is the way to go. More exotic materials to use include Cosmic Black granite. Further balance can be given to a room using granite worktops by incorporating granite shelving and window sills.
