Bringing blue into your bathroom is a wonderful choice, as our blue bathroom ideas will demonstrate. We hope we’ll convince you to step away from the neutrals and if blue becomes the hue for you, take a look at these gorgeous blue tiles.

If you love the colour blue, you’re certainly not alone. A worldwide survey by YouGov conducted in 10 countries across four continents shows that blue is the most popular colour across the board.

Blue is a wonderful choice of colour as it can bring peace and tranquillity to your space. As well as developing relaxation and soothing nerves, blue can also bring a freshness or a nautical feel to your bathroom.

Blue Bathroom Ideas

Using blue tiles in your bathroom can create a gorgeous calming sanctuary, whether you keep it light with pastels or go dark and moody with deeper shades. We’ve selected some of our favourite blue bathroom tiles to start you on your adventure into the blue!

Floral Blue Bathroom Ideas

Floral tiles are an emerging trend and an ideal way to soften interiors and bring nature indoors. Tiles with flower designs are one of the most perfect blue bathroom ideas if you’re looking for a soft look in delicate pastel blue shades or a bold look with royal and navy blue.

If a fully floral design is a bit much, why not try a more geometric design with lines and angles to make a stronger impact.

Floral tiles work wonderfully with metro tiles and are ideal for creating spaces influenced by the countryside or the Victorian era.

Watercolour Blue Bathroom Ideas

If you want blue bathroom ideas that give you a hint of colour but in a pared-down way, try watercolour tiles. The lovely gradients of colour will make a subtle impact, and they are perfect when blended with complimentary décor tiles.

Our Vita range as featured in customer Lisa’s bathroom combines variation between tiles for a truly unique look with a glorious glossy finish. These tiles are also available in a range of wonderful complementary colours so you can mix and match to your heart’s content. Why not check out our lovely range of blue metro tiles for more ideas.

Oxidized Blue Bathroom Ideas

Oxidized tiles are the hottest tiling trend around, so we had to include them in our blue bathroom ideas. If you’re looking for a designer look that has a little edge to it then oxidized tiles are the choice for you.

They are purposely designed to have a weathered, rusty look to give the appearance of oxidized metal and work wonderfully well in bathrooms alongside pops of chrome or black. Perfect for creating a grungey, industrial look that is still utterly stylish.

Add in some cool blue cool hues as a shower wall, behind the sink, or all over! Either way, they are a cost-effective way to quickly brighten your room right up and invoke those far-away vibes or wonderful holiday memories.

Multicolour Blue Bathroom Ideas

Who says you have to stick to one blue? Why not choose a few different tiles and create a wonderful gradient effect, going from dark to light or vice versa. This is one of the best blue bathroom ideas when you’re short on space but still want to make a statement. To give the illusion of more light, we recommend using a darker colour on the bottom with a lighter shade on top.

Mediterranean Blue Bathroom Ideas

With all the gloriously rich colours and elaborate patterns that evoke the feeling of sunny days on vacation, Mediterranean-inspired rooms are growing in popularity in the design world. Capturing that holiday feeling with the lovely coastal blue of Mediterranean tiles is one of our favourite blue bathroom ideas.

Choose a geometric tile that is repeated in a pattern for a more classic appearance, or, for a more contemporary feel, combine them with wood effect or plain tiles to create a feature using only a few patterned tiles.

Vintage Blue Bathroom Ideas

Nothing makes us happier than a beautiful, one-of-a-kind vintage tile. Thankfully, there are a tonne of vintage-inspired tiles available if you don’t want to attempt to find genuine throwback tiles!

And if 1960s swirls or 1970s colour clashes are too over the top, try a more understated choice with subdued tones and a vintage design. Vintage tiles are one of our favourite blue bathroom ideas and look amazing when paired with period furnishings and accessories. Tile from wall to floor for a statement, or draw attention to a particular area or section by blending them with metro or wood effect tiles.

Victorian Blue Bathroom Ideas

Victorian tile designs are consistently in demand for both classic and modern residences. These fashionable patterns have their origins in the late 1800s, when middle-class homeowners first started using Victorian tiles to imitate the uniquely hand-crafted tiles preferred by the nobility.

Modern Victorian tiles are constructed of durable porcelain and there are many eye-catching designs to choose from. Opt for the traditional monochromatic style or add bolder tiles with subtle colour accents that you can tie in with paint and soft furnishings.

Victorian tiles are great for adding interest to bathrooms with plain colour schemes. And if a whole floor seems too much, framing a small section of Victorian tiles with plain or wood effect is a great move.

To make a statement and add a wow factor to your bathroom, add hexagons in as many shades and patterns as you like.

Metro tiles are one of the most popular blue bathroom ideas and they always look fabulous in bathrooms, especially when you plump for a bright pop of colour!
