We’re going back to black for today’s paint color roundup! As a lover of neutral shades, black can seem like an intimidating color to play with when it comes to painting your interiors or exteriors, but adding a touch of black paint is one of the best ways to add depth and drama to any space. Pro tip: when used intentionally, it can look incredibly chic! If you aren’t convinced yet, you can experiment with black cabinetry, interior doors, and accents to add dimension to your space.
Thinking of taking the plunge? We’ve rounded up 5 of our tried-and-true black paint colors. Scroll through for inspiration photos and projects where we’ve featured these stunning shades of black.
We may be biased because we used Black Beauty on the #thelakeloft exterior, but this bold black shade has our heart! With slight warm undertones, this black paint color works well in both modern and traditional spaces.
As straightforward as its shade name, you can expect Benjamin Moore’s Black to give you exactly that. This color is part of the Benjamin Moore Color Preview – a collection of bold and saturated colors. With a slight cooler undertone, this shade of black mixes well with warm accents like those found at the #mplsmodern.
Benjamin Moore Wrought Iron is a chameleon of a color! With undertone notes of brown, blue, and gray, it will appear differently depending upon the natural light source where you paint it. If you aren’t ready to commit to a true black, we recommend this softer shade (don’t worry, it still packs a punch!).
Benjamin Moore Graphite is another popular paint pick if you’re looking for a black that’s a bit softer, and a little sooty. Even with the change of natural light, this shade has been known to stay true to its core.
What we love most about this specific shade of black, is that it doesn’t carry any discernible undertones, so it’s truly a “neutral” paint color. Tricorn Black is one of the safest choices you can make when painting with black for the first time, thanks to its pure black appearance.
