You may say that black isn’t for kids’ spaces that are expected to be colorful and cheerful, and making a black wall there is even worse because the room may look gloomy. And you’ll be surprised to see that timeless black color entered kids’ spaces long ago and more and more parents and designers add it to kids’ rooms. A black wall is a bold statement, which is popular for Scandinavian, modern, minimalist and some other styles but kids’ spaces are often eclectic and you can incorporate such a wall in different ways and play with it. Wanna see some ideas? Let’s get started.
Partly Painted Black Walls
If you think that a whole black wall is too much for a kids’ space, there’s a way to handle it: make a partly black wall. It can be half painted or have some patterns like mountains or brushstrokes, which is great for themed rooms, for example, an adventure-inspire room. Such a wall will create a bold contrast in the kid’s room and make it stand out.

Such walls are incredibly popular for many spaces today, from kitchens to home offices, and if you ask me, I’d say, a chalkboard wall is a must for a kids’ space. Kids love drawing and painting, and many kids I know do it on the walls. If you don’t want your child to spoil expensive wallpaper or just cool walls, go for a chalkboard wall in their room or in the play space – encourage their creativity!

Black Statement Walls
Black statement walls appear in kids’ rooms more and more often. They are suitable both for girls and boys, for modern and Scandi spaces, for adventure and travel-inspired rooms, for space and sky-themed ones. These can be pure black walls, or walls with some stenciling, prints, patterns that match the room theme. if you think that a black wall is too gloomy, you can always enliven it with colorful decorations and accessories, wreaths, garlands and lights.
