Decorating A Blue Tile Bathroom

The part we always look forward to when designing a bathroom is picking all the lovely colors and materials we’re going to feature. This is usually the moment tiles come in. In case you’re arranging a bathroom renovation, you might lean toward the possibility of an all-white and marble-everything bathroom, but listen to us. Indeed, there’s a spot for a vibrant, decorated tile in your life, and we highly suggest that it is inside your shower or your bathroom wall. Or even your bathtub. Regardless of where you want to use blue tile, it will certainly change your bathing experience.

As a matter of fact, people have long viewed blue as a color of glorious peacefulness—quieting and refined, and reminiscent of the deepest waters and clearest state of minds.

In addition, an individual who acknowledges understated serenity does not need convincing on choosing the color blue, and even less on the attractive navy shade since he already grasps the intensity of both.

Meanwhile, it is no surprise that there is no other place in your home that can benefit best from this timeless color than your bathroom.

Blue, and most particularly navy, bring out a nautical air that suits the bathroom very well. Whether it’s a large format or mosaic blue tiles, a blue tile bathroom signifies a well-kept and tranquil room.

Although the bold may want to go all-out on blue, others can simply take advantage of a sprinkle of navy or a hint of teal to add texture and contrast to a plain undecorated white bathroom. Finally, blue is one of the limited colors that it’s hard to go wrong. When it comes to blue tile, less is more and more is even better.

Making The Most Of Your Blue Tile Bathroom

We all know that a well-designed bathroom can quickly increase the value of your house. Besides, because it’s one of the most high-traffic zones in your home, particularly if you often have guests, you have all the reasons to make your bathroom updated.

Although the minimalist style will certainly stay popular for quite a long time, there is absolutely room to bring your simple bathroom tile design to a whole new level with a splash of color or a unique pattern. But where do you start when you seem to have endless options?

There are numerous shades of blue to choose from, including powder blue, navy blue, serenity blue, midnight blue, and more. In fact, you can use any of them in any bathrooms, from coastal to cottage or rustic, blues usually work. Also, the least demanding and most well-known idea for including blue to the bathroom is by decorating the ceilings, floors, and walls, and you can do it in other ways, as well.

First, start by painting the wall in blues, consider cladding your walls with blue tiles, or go for blue-painted beadboard. You can also do the same with floors. Although blue tiles are typically popular with floors, they can also extend to walls. Meanwhile, another clever idea is to clad a sink with blue tiles, clad the backsplash of the bathtub with blue tiles, or just put accent tiles in the shower.

Blue Tile In The Kitchen: What You Need To Know

Indeed, blue kitchens are super hot at this moment. For many years, people told us not to utilize blue in the kitchen since they believed the color blue was suppressing the appetite. Today, more and more people are becoming a convert, and many cool shades of blue invade the kitchen, including tools, decorations, and backsplashes.

Navy Blue

In particular, navy blue is an exquisite, sensational backsplash color decision. No wonder it is gaining momentum now. It truly looks eminent when matched with medium to dark wood hues, as well as shades of orange since they are complementary colors on the color wheel. Also, check out our navy blue tile ideas and photos above to see how luxurious and rich this shade is.

Cobalt Blue

Cobalt blue usually takes center stage once in every decade and is presently getting the spotlight. However, I will not suggest utilizing a color for your backsplash because it’s popular, as the cost and bother of changing it once the trend dies are too high. Thus, in case you are not sure you want this shade of blue tile in your kitchen for long, you can paint it on the wall instead. Also, it’ll be a lot simpler (also less expensive) to change it in the future.

On the other hand, if you definitely love this color, whether it is on trend or not, then go for it! Moreover, it’s almost similar to the shade of blue jeans, which we always pair with any color. As a result, this means you can use it as a neutral shade, which is flexible enough to match your design or theme.

Decorating Ideas For Your Blue Tile Backsplash

Include a splash of color into your kitchen with these innovative design ideas for blue tile backsplashes. Regardless of whether you lean toward a conventional, modern, or cottage look, we have a blue tile backsplash idea for each style.

Beach Theme

First, you can add the turquoise shades of the sea into your kitchen with an ocean glass backsplash. For instance, a vibrant small arabesque pattern brings vitality to your kitchen while a sandy wall color and white cabinets avoid the tiles from overpowering the space.

Keep It Simple

Next, you can keep it simple with a single sheet of glass tile with blue paint on the back. For example, a blue tile backsplash can complement the dark and steel accents of an industrial kitchen and give it easy-to-clean protection behind the sink and stove.

Meanwhile, add a dramatic impact to an all-white kitchen with a vibrant wall of ocean-colored glass mosaic tiles. Moreover, stretch out the striking blue backsplash to the ceiling to make it a focal point or maintain it merely over the sink for a practical and cheap approach to upgrade your home.

Glossy Glass Tile

On the other hand, make a cramped kitchen look larger with mini horizontal glass tiles and neutral cabinets. Indeed, a glossy blue backsplash reflects light and extends lengthwise to avoid the kitchen feeling restricted.

Handmade

Do you want a unique blue tile for your kitchen backsplash? Then you can work with a ceramicist to have custom tiles made according to your particulars. In the event that your backsplash zone is small, going this course may not be as costly as you might expect. Also, it’s an incredible way to support a local artisan.

Final Tips In Choosing Your Tile

With regards to renovating a bathroom, nothing establishes a greater impression than tile—whether it’s in the shower, on the floor, or utilized for a backsplash. Below are the things you should consider to nail that blue tile bathroom or blue tile kitchen finally.

First, determine your budget since tile comes in all sizes, shapes, prices, and styles. The initial step to choosing the tile that’s ideal for your bathroom or kitchen is to set up a budget. Once you have your budget, you’ll have an assortment of alternatives to look over, including porcelain, ceramic, and natural stone. Also, ceramic is the most affordable alternative, with porcelain being the next on the list. Moreover, the most significant advantage of porcelain tile is its through-body make. In the event that you chip a blue ceramic tile, you will see white underneath the surface. On the other hand, a blue porcelain tile will be blue right through. Porcelain is likewise an increasingly tough and water-resistant alternative.

Next, consider the tile size. Although smaller tiles were at one point the standard, 12x24s have become the new trend. In fact, the larger the tile, the larger the space appears. For individuals who like to stay conventional, subway and basketweave tiles do not generally go out of style. Finally, to make a modern bathroom with a classic take, 4×16 subway tiles put an updated twist on the timeless look.
