Blue Color Palette For the Bathroom

The bathroom is the ideal place to use almost all possible shades of blue. However, lighter shades of blue, as well as muted blues, will be more suitable for this room in your house or apartment. However, if you want to use blue correctly in your bathroom, you should take a few tips into account.

First, consider the size of your bathroom. If it’s small, painting all the walls blue might make the room look smaller than it is! Also, lighting matters a lot. If your bathroom has plenty of daylight, it’s ok to use darker shades of blue in it.

But if your bathroom lacks proper light, try to avoid darker blues and opt for lighter shades instead. Below, you can check out several blue color palettes that will be trendy for bathrooms in 2024.

Light Blue Color Palette For the Bathroom

Lighter shades of blue are easier to use since they can be easily incorporated into any room, no matter its size and lighting. The following lighter blues will give your bathroom a clean and refreshing vibe without making the room feel too cold or sterile.

  1. Healing Aloe 1562
  2. Sea Salt SW 6204
  3. Beach Glass 1564
  4. Woodlawn Blue HC-147
  5. Gray Cashmere 2138-60
  6. Chantilly Lace OC-65
  7. White Dove OC-17

Darker Blue Color Palette For the Bathroom

If you have a large bathroom that is well-lit, you can try playing with darker shades of blue. Of course, it might not be a good idea to paint all your bathroom walls a deep blue. However, your bathroom will only win if you use a darker shade of blue on your vanity sink or shelves, for example. For example, you can use one of these colors:

  1. Stunning 826 BM
  2. Hale Navy HC-154
  3. Wrought Iron 2124-10
  4. Blue Note 2129-30
  5. Van Deusen Blue HC-156
  6. Dark Pewter 2122-10

By the way, if you don’t find it possible to use darker shades of blue to paint your bathroom, it can even work if you add items of this color (e.g., bathroom rags or towels).

Blue Color Palette in the Living Room

Making an interior color palette for living rooms that would contain blue colors may seem to be a challenging task. As we have already said, blue is often considered a tricky and hard-to-use color, especially for such a space as a living room where we are used to more versatile colors like greiges/whites/neutrals.

However, we want to suggest you a couple of meticulously selected color palettes with different shades of blue, lighter and darker, that you can easily use in your living room. For sure, in case of a darker blue palette, your living room should also have other, lighter colors like whites to prevent the space from reading too gloomy!

Light Blue Color Palette in the Living Room

If you want your living room to have a color palette with some light blue, you might find the following colors suitable for this purpose:

  1. Palest Pistachio 2122-60
  2. Lily White 2128-70
  3. Constellation AF-540
  4. Wythe Blue HC-143
  5. Robin’s Nest 618
  6. Water Drops 659

The palette contains colors with blue undertones, as well as those that have prominent greenish undertones. As a result, you can pick the shade that suits your living room’s overall color scheme better.

Darker Blue Color Palette in the Living Room

If you want to have a modern blue color palette in your living room, you should pay closer attention to these beautiful shades of blue:

  1. Sleepy Blue SW 6225
  2. Waterloo SW 9141
  3. Ellie Gray SW 7650
  4. Moody Blue SW 6221
  5. Riverway SW 6222
  6. Tempe Star SW 6229

Although the palette is considered dark, you can find less dark and deeper shades of this color here. For example, SW Waterloo and SW Tempe Star are quite dark (although pretty muted at the same time). But SW Sleepy Blue is a relatively light blue color. This means you can combine these colors so that you get an ideal color combination for your space.

Blue Color Palette for the Kitchen and Kitchen Cabinets

We typically don’t use blue that much in our kitchens. This color is strongly associated with water, which is why you can mostly find it in bathrooms instead. In the kitchen, blue can only be used as a color for a backsplash or a color of tiles.
