Black Paint Colours

There is not just one black. The perception of the colour will be assessed in context, so choosing black requires a little thought and consideration. Explore our black paint colours below or browse our inspiration gallery of black schemes.

For cosiness, choose blacks that are warm with either red, brown or yellow as a component of the colour. Alternatively, cooler blacks have particular standout impact when applied to front doors. The matching of these related undertones are the key to success when using black in a scheme.

Warm red-based blacks

These blacks paints all team well with gentle soft warm colours. Try Cordoba with either neutral stone colours or with pinks, as the beauty of its pink undertone will shine through enhancing the combination.

Cool blue-based blacks

The very popular darker blues have found favour for use on kitchen cabinetry, woodwork, and walls, where the warmth of these deep blues adds intimacy and sophistication to any space. Use a small amount of Basalt for a contrasting highlight or create a blue-black scheme with all-over walls and woodwork for a comforting contemporary feel. These cool blacks are very popular colour choices for front doors as a more contemporary choice than the classical jet black.

Green-based blacks

The popular use of green-based black paints in combination with other related colours creates a very pleasing scheme for interiors. They add a strong dimension to the colour scheme by the addition of contrast. Try Invisible Green as a black substitute with Aquamarine - the colours will relate in complete harmony whilst the darker tone adds stature and solidity.

Warm Blacks with a hint of brown

These warmer versions of black have a softness not exhibited by the cooler black tones. Chocolate Colour or Chimney Brick will be seen as black but reflect warmth when paired with lighter tones in place of a cooler black.

Being bold with black

Mysterious and ethereal, black stands apart from all other colours on the spectrum. In the world of interiors, black is a defining colour that can be used to punctuate a lighter scheme or dominate an all-over look.  Although, at first this colour may feel a little overwhelming, there is no need to be intimidated when using black in your home as it is guaranteed to create an impact.
