Before we get into details, let’s talk a bit about the alternatives, in case an end of bed bench isn’t exactly what you had in mind for this room. There are plenty of other options to choose from. For example, you could put a small dresser at the end of the bed to add some extra storage to the room and to frame the bed at the same time. Another idea can be to put a desk there or to opt for a small sofa and perhaps even a coffee table if there’s enough space.
The textures you use are also important. In the case of a warm color palette such as the one described above, you can use soft textures and fabrics. You can use silk or cotton. After you’ve decided on a main color scheme for the room you’ll have to add a few accents. They don’t have to follow the same lines. In fact, it’s best if they don’t because this way they stand out and the contrasts become focal points. Accent features such as throw pillows, artwork, decorations, area rugs, etc. should be more colorful. You can opt for bold and vibrant shades that will complement your black furniture beautifully.
The strategies you can use are numerous. For instance, you can use a bench for end of bed completeness as a focal point, making sure it contrasts with the bed and also with other elements in the room. The opposite strategy would be to make sure the bench blends in and in that case you can find a way to coordinate it with something else in the room like the curtains, the headboard or the area rug.
Another possibility is to work with a variety of colors and to make a smooth transition between the dark and light shades, with bold and colorful accents. The little touches of color often bring together everything else beautifully. To better visualize all these possibilities, have a look at the examples we’ve prepared.
