Black bedroom ideas for a dark and cosy sanctuary

According to research by Living Cozy, black is the go-to shade for bedrooms in 2022. Not only does it look good, but this moody shade helps reduce the energy within a room, promoting better sleep. And who doesn’t want that, right?

So if you’re thinking of freshening up your scheme, why not use black in your bedroom, creating a cocooning feeling? You can achieve any scheme using this mysterious hue, from glam and sophisticated to modern-rustic. Just pair it with the right finishes and textures.

You also don’t have to stick to a monochromatic palette. You can mix and match this dark shade with anything from muted yellows, dark blues and vibrant greens.

So I’ve gathered the latest black beds, bedside tables, bed linen, wall coverings and more to help get you inspired. However you use black, you can achieve a stylish and relaxing scheme for a restful and on-trend night’s sleep. So take a look…

Black bedroom ideas you’re sure to love

Keep a minimalist scheme with a mix of neutral shades, from dark to light. Go for the timeless Caversham grey bed, £469.99, from Furniture And Choice, then let the black paint stand out.
Add a pop of colour to your dark bedroom with help from a pretty patterned wallpaper design, for example, the Showgirls metallic wallpaper from the Graduate Collection, £140 per roll, from Lime Lace.
Black can work in smaller bedrooms, too. For instance, mix and match different hues of grey to open up the space and create a cosy feeling with help from dark wooden flooring, black paint or wallpaper, and a statement bed, like the Daisy bed frame, £845 for a double, from Button & Sprung.
Dress your walls in black paint and match your windows curtains, too, for that cosy feeling and add dimension through your bed and storage solutions – the Shabby bed in Nutmeg Buff Burnished Leather, from £4750 for a double, from Timothy Oulton takes this bedroom scheme to the next level.
