Black and white Wallpaper: The Guide

Styles and trends come and go, yet black and white wallpaper remains a timeless choice that never seem to go out of style. Its versatile non-colour nature allows this kind of wall décor to seamlessly fit into almost any existing interior design concept without clashing with colours or patterns, making it the easiest choice for adding interest and a visual cue point. This classic and fashionable statement combination works particularly well with living spaces inspired by Art Deco influences or those that aim for a contemporary minimalist energy. A black and white stripey pattern tricks the eye into perceiving the room as more spacious, creating an illusion of depth that is a great asset for smaller rooms or spaces with a low ceiling.

Why should I choose a black and white wallpaper?

The ease with which a black and white wallpaper can be paired with any style and décor, adding understated glamour without the risk of clashing with other colours, and providing a stylish monochrome canvas make it an ideal choice for many interior decoration concepts.

Black and white wallpaper creates the perfect setup for a monochrome aesthetic

There is something truly appealing about a classic monochrome look which avoids colour disharmonies, especially when opting for a design that uses different shades and tonalities to create a cohesive look. A black and white designer wallpaper is the perfect blank canvas for your monochrome design ideas, providing a striking background that allows other elements, such as furniture, artwork, and accessories to add colour accents without overwhelming the space.

Black and white wall décor adds depth and structure to the room

With its neutral tones, black and white wall décor provides a clean but structured backdrop that highlights the architecture and features of the room. The contrast between black and white creates the illusion of spaciousness, making your room appear larger than it actually is. When used together, these two tones which are at the polar opposite of the colour spectrum add a pleasant balance.

Black and white wall coverings are a timeless and versatile choice

Monochrome black and white wallpapers are a perennial favourite amongst interior decorators because they offer a sense of stability and structure, making a room feel more organised and “put together”. Being non-colours, black and white can be successfully paired with a plethora of design styles, ranging from contemporary to traditional, complementing existing décor by adding a touch of elegance and sophistication.

What should I consider when opting for a black and white wallpaper?

Black and white wallpaper is a jack-of-all-trades, but it is worth considering the type of room where you plan to install it and the existing décor before committing to a specific model.

The size of your room and the amount of natural light

Black and white wall décor is an excellent choice for almost any space, but it is a good idea to consider the size of the room and the amount of natural light it receives before choosing a specific model. If the room is small or lacks natural light, you should avoid bold black and white patterns, as they may overwhelm the space, opting instead for a more subtle pattern or limiting its use to a single feature wall.

The overall style of your home

It might be difficult to add a black and white wallpaper if the décor of the room is based on an extremely colourful variety of pastel shades or features a heavy dose of traditional wooden furniture. If you are unsure whether the black and white look will work in your home, it might be a good idea to consult an interior designer or to contact us beforehand for advice.

Which varieties of black and white wall décor are currently the most popular?

Black and white wall décor comes in a multitude of models, ranging from fascinating graphic designs, a plethora of different patterns, as well as classic geometric and striped varieties.

Patterned

Opting for a subtle black and white pattern allows you to take advantage of all the benefits this type of décor provides, while giving you the choice of which proportions of the two tones you prefer. Furthermore, a stylish pattern adds texture and visual identity to your room, creating a more tactile and visual experience.

Graphic designs

From botanic to animals, from abstract to eccentric or vintage, almost all styles of wall décor are also available in monochrome colours, giving interior designers the full range of possibilities a graphic wallpaper offers whilst creating a subtle and versatile backdrop. A black and white graphic wallpaper is the perfect option for feature walls that aim to add interest without being too overwhelming.

Geometric

Geometric patterns have been a staple in wallpaper design for decades. This is mainly due the fact that they create fascinating motifs by simply repeating an element and/or using a variety of different sizes. A black and white colour scheme adds to their simplicity and transformability by emphasising their ability to create a sense of movement and flow in a room, tricking the eye into seeing more space and hence making it feel larger.

Stripes

Perhaps the most iconic and classic of wall décor patterns, stripes in black and white are easy to match with many other design elements. A wallpaper featuring vertical black and white stripes is particularly beneficial in rooms with low ceilings as vertical stripes create a sense of height, making it appear higher as well as more open, airy and spacious.

Which rooms are most suitable for black and white wallpaper?

A versatile tool working for most décor choices, black and white wallpaper is particularly suited to monochrome living rooms, bathrooms with plenty of style, and calming bedrooms.

Stylish bedrooms

Known for their calming and soothing effects, black and white are two tonalities that work extremely well in a bedroom with an understated yet stylish look. At the same time, a black and white wallpaper model can create a tranquil and serene atmosphere that promotes precious moments of peace and restful sleep. A single feature wall with a black and white wallpaper behind the bed head provides an illusion of space that especially benefits smaller bedrooms.

Monochrome living rooms

When it comes to redecorating the living room without discarding the existing furniture and furnishings, a black and white wallpaper can work its magic by providing a fresh atmosphere without clashing with existing colours or patterns. This type of monochrome décor is perfect for drawing attention to the architectural details and unique features of your living room without being too distracting.

Designer bathrooms

The bathroom is our personal oasis and should exude a clear sense of identity that defines the space as ours without clashing with the existing colour scheme. Thanks to the strong contrast of the two colours, decorating a single wall with a wallpaper featuring a striking black and white graphic motif creates a bold statement.

Which other colours go well with black and white wallpaper?

Due to their neutral, non-colour nature, black and white can be paired with any other tonality, like grey, gold or silver, to achieve a more nuanced and glamorous finish.

Black, white and grey

Pairing classic black and white with the nuanced nature of grey creates a softer effect that works well in elegant living rooms and stylish offices. This effect is further enhanced when grey is used as a neutral background for black and white motifs, producing a cohesive monochrome effect that is pleasing to the eye and helps us focus on our work.

Black, white and gold

A combination used for centuries to present wealth and luxury, adding gold accents to an otherwise monochrome look brings the focus onto the sophisticated nature of the most precious of metals. A wallpaper mixing these tonalities often uses the monochrome pair as the background with lashings of gold as highlights. This type of wall décor works well as a background for artwork with gold frames.

Black, white and silver

Adding silver to a black and white pattern creates a wallpaper design that is well suited to elegant and representative spaces without losing the benefits a monochrome look provides. It’s a style choice suitable for elegant rooms that feature colour highlights in the form of works of art or designer furniture, providing an understated yet luxurious finish.
