Using blue in a bathroom may not be revolutionary, but there's more than one way to create a look using this colour as a base. 

From changing up the style to adding blue through different elements, we've picked some of our favourite examples that use the colour in a brilliant way to bring a bathroom design to life. 

Classic blue

This shower room uses a regal blue to create a dynamic look in a small space, contrasted with on-trend brass taps and shower. The darker colour leans into the compact proportions to create an enveloping feel when showering in the space. 

Electric blue

Vibrant and exciting, this shade of blue offers your space an injection of energy that is sure to give you some get-up-and-go in the morning. To keep the space feeling relaxing too, use as an accent alongside a softer colour palette. 

Cornflower blue 


This shade of blue is often associated with a classic, farmhouse style, but we love this bathroom created by the designers at Ripples which seems to take inspiration from retro design. A mix of 3D and patterned tiles give a geometric quality that helps to give this chue a bit more edge. 

Midnight blue

This beautiful dark blue colour is almost black, making it easy to use and retain a refined feel in your bathroom. If entire walls in midnight blue sound intense, we love the look of this half-panelling for a traditional feel - the wallpaper in this scheme elevates the idea to the next level, too. 

Grey blue


Soft, calm and sophisticated, this shade of blue, used in a neutral bathroom scheme by designer Toni Elmer of House Sprucing, is perfectly pitched to add interest without drawing too much focus. 

Light blue 


How about a painted boat bath to bring some colour to your bathroom? This light blue design is paired in with a patterned floor tile for a classic look with a twist.
