One of the most popular design trends of 2018 can be summed up with the phrase, “Back in Black!” Black is making its resurgence as an excellent option for interior decorating. It is sleek, modern, and stunning. But, you must also be careful when using black. Otherwise, you’ll end up overwhelming yourself. Fortunately, the guide you find below will help explain why black ceiling tiles can be a great option and how to go about choosing the right ones.
The Benefits Of Decorating With Black
There are multiple benefits to decorating with black colors, helping explain the resurgence its made of late. For one, black does well with warm colors. This means that it’s very people to incorporate it into their homes without making extreme renovations. Similarly, black is a statement color. You do not need much black to make a statement. For many people, it’s very affordable to install only a few pieces of black into a room.
Using black as an interior design color can also make other pieces in your room stand out. For example, if you have an architectural feature that you love and is a warmer color, using shades of black can make it stand out. Think about it this way. If you put a piece of paper on a white bed sheet, you may see the paper, but it will blend in. But, if you put a piece of paper on a black bed sheet, the paper will pop and be quite apparent.
Lastly, many homeowners find that using black helps open up a room. It can make ceilings appear taller, especially when paired with recess lighting. This can be particularly beneficial in smaller areas and walkways.
Using Black Metal Ceiling Tiles
Metal ceiling tiles are a great way to incorporate black into your home design. Metal ceiling tiles are incredibly versatile and can be used nearly anywhere in your home. In addition to hanging them on the ceiling, you can also hang them on your wall as a substitute for paint or wallpaper. Doing so will provide texture and character to a room.
Many homeowners have also been using metal ceiling tiles as backsplashes in their kitchens and laundry rooms. Black backsplashes mesh very well with stainless steel appliances, giving your kitchen an instant upgrade.
Black tiles also serve a beneficial purpose when used in this area. Metal ceiling tiles are very easy to keep clean, as you need to do nothing more than wipe them with a damp rag. However, if you were using white tiles, you would feel the need to wipe them down after every time you cook. Otherwise, the grease would build into an unsightly mess. Black tiles, on the other hand, hide grease splatter so that you don’t have to work to keep your kitchen clean constantly.
You can also use tin ceiling tiles as accent pieces in your home. For example, you can use the tiles as wall art or as a memo board. If you are using them as wall art, consider hanging three different tiles in a staggered pattern, making sure that the tiles vary in either design or color. This is a simple addition that will go a long way toward making a room more welcoming.
How To Select The Correct Black Ceiling Tile
It’s crucial that you find a black ceiling tile that will blend with your kitchen seamlessly. Since black is such a bold color, anything that is out of place will stick out like a sore thumb. Our online catalog has different shades of black to choose from, including
- Mirror Black
- Satin Black
- Virginia Color
If you are not sure how a tile will fit into your remodel, we recommend ordering samples from our website. It is much easier to order samples and pick the color that you love, rather than ordering an entire batch of tiles thinking they are going to work, only to discover that they are entirely different than what you were expecting.
You should also think about the pattern you choose, and how it will fit into your area. For example, if you have to make a lot of cuts to make the ceiling tiles fit into an existing space, you may want to avoid tiles with exquisite borders. Instead, choose more basic tiles that won’t look bad when placed side-by-side.
