If we asked you to think about a blue bathroom, how many people instantly went to the novelty, nautical trend?
At Lusso, there’s nothing novelty about our bathrooms! Blue is an incredibly versatile colour and perfect for the bathroom, whether you want to go for a minimalist style with an ice blue or full-on glamour with a petrol or navy shade. In this blog, our experts are going to show you how to add blue to your bathroom, with no novelty ship wheels or beach signs in sight!
Whatever shade you decide to choose, let’s get inspired by some of our favourite blue bathroom tips and real-life transformations!
Light Blue Bathrooms
Light blue instantly adds a sense of peace and tranquillity to a space. It’s ideal for smaller bathrooms where the illusion of space is key and will make your bathroom feel fresh and inviting. A pale shade of blue looks fantastic coordinated with crisp white shades as well as polished chrome or brushed gold fixtures. Finish the space with white bathroom fixtures such as a freestanding bath or basin shelf and you’re ready to relax!
We love the contrast between the beautiful natural plaster used in this bathroom against the Lusso basin. The subtle light blue hues really bring out the crispness of the white as well as the warmth of the brushed gold taps used in this transformation. If you’re worried about painting your whole bathroom light blue, why not opt for a simple feature wall or blue tiles?
Teal & Turquoise Bathrooms
One of the most popular bathroom shades of the moment is teal, bridging the gap between blue and green to add instant opulence and glamour to any space. Teal and turquoise shades work well in spaces of all sizes, whether you want to add a feature wall or go all out with tiles and flooring in this desirable shade.
We love the use of teal tiles in this tropical-inspired bathroom. The feature wallpaper works perfectly with the rich colour of the tiles and the marble effect stone basin and gold taps add a contemporary flourish.
If you do want to go bold, why not really make a statement with your walls and flooring? This show-stopping bathroom combines bright blue flooring and walls with modern brushed gold fixtures and a contrasting crisp white wall. The overall look is simply stunning and the Lusso vanity unit with matte black accents adds another layer of contemporary style.
Dark Blue Bathrooms
If you have been following our blog for awhile now, you will know that we love a dramatic dark blue bathroom! For more on how to really nail this trend, take a look at our blog on Navy & Gold Bathroom Trends.
Navy is timeless, stylish and perfect for the bathroom, adding a sense of luxury and elegance that works perfectly with a wide range of bathroom fixtures and fittings. Adding such a dark colour to your space can be intimidating, which is why most people opt for a feature wall that can be contrasted with brighter shades. One of our favourite combinations to see in the bathroom is navy, metallics and crisp white stone baths and basins. Add in some bright foliage and you’ve created an effortlessly modern bathroom that will have you counting down the hours till your next soak!
