We’re in love. Who would have thought that a bathroom could hold such welcoming and promise? These blue bathrooms are simply stunning, and we’ve found an amazing array of blue bathroom ideas that will help your bathroom exceed expectations and deliver perfection every time.
The bathroom is a place of serenity and solitude, so there’s some responsibility when redesigning the water closet to enhance its natural sense of calm and escape. A bathroom should be a place where one feels safe and peaceful, and happy to be alone. Or, if you’re lucky, perhaps it might be a space to luxuriously indulge in a bath with your loved one.
Either way, we’ve found some spectacular specimens of bathrooms that were born for blue.
Textures of blue
No-one’s going to thank you for all that grouting, but these miniature tiles, in contrast with the toast-soldier blues, is a treat of tactility in a bathroom that’s simply flooding with natural light. This blue isn’t calm – it has the urgency of deep reds – but against the greys of the exploded sandpaper of the miniature tile, this bathroom ticks the boxes for sophisticated styling and minimalistic furniture. We love that the flooring uses the same tiling as the wall – just imagine the sole massage as you walk barefoot on that textured flooring; with underfloor heating, it would be pure heaven. The stunning stand-alone bath is striking in brilliant white; enhanced by the frosted window that filters the blue from the daylight, casting this fabulous bathroom with extreme white incandescence that may be a little much first thing in the morning. However, against the blue of the tiling, this tiled chamber is treated to an energy that’s determined to slap you into consciousness. Striking.
Chamber of calm
In direct contrast to the vital energy of the previous example, this smart bathroom uses the calming effects of greyish blue to bring elegant structure to a space that oozes the reassurance of order, with a style that isn’t screaming to be noticed. The flooring is a rustic blend of sandy beige that stretches up the bulbous, rectangular, glossy tiling, creating a muted pastel focal point against the smokey blue that wraps around it. The vanity unit is classic, stretching along the color-chart of browns and topped with a marbled sandy sink top that peaks with a classic mixer tap configuration. The wooden framed mirror is hung directly above the sink unit, mirroring the vanity width precisely, bringing order to this careful arrangement of furniture. The triple light feature is classic: the fluted mouth of the light-shades matching the base of the toilet, which stretches up towards a curvaceous lavatory bowl. The shelving above the loo mirrors the width of the cistern perfectly. Everything about this beautiful space exudes order and calm. Restful.
This beautiful space would be a wash of white so blinding that it might be hard to find the toilet with the sun beating through the window. White is clean and structured, but it doesn’t cascade warmth or calm. The saving grace in this rather plain bathroom is the chamber of aquamarine surrounding the bath, radiating calming energy which emanates throughout the entirety of the bathroom. Daylight is a spectrum of colored light – white and blue being the predominants – so when blue is combined with extreme expanses of white, it brings balance to the blinding nature of overwhelming brilliance. The three-sided chamber of blue introduces an array of hues, with a charming chamfered edge at the top corner, adding a friendly curve to this boudoir of right angles. The rain shower and the inset bathing controls, add a touch of luxury to this bathroom that could have missed the mark were it not for the inspired azures that bring balance to this bathing chamber. A small wonder.
The blue half bathroom
This stylish cloakroom uses an expanse of dramatic Gorse Blue to bring a beautiful matte flatness to the surrounding walls of this small half bathroom. The contrast between the blue and the sudden white of the ceiling is striking, adding a crisp geometry to this privy of calming sapphire. The skirting boards take blue more seriously with a Peking Blue highlight that accentuates the tall Victorian skirting. The same shade is found on the shelf above the floating toilet. But this room would be slightly drab if it weren’t for the introduction of pattern in the beautiful tiling. There are two separate motific ideas here, which is unusual in such a small space, but it works. The Moroccan-influenced floor pattern gives the surface area more breadth and fakes the feel of footage. The fish scale tesselation in shade of blues and grey introduces some annular attraction to this small, square box; echoed in the stylish oval bowl, the curve of the wall faucet, and the circular mirror. Cleverly, the circularity is contained within a square of the wall art, unifying these two design ideas together perfectly. Swish.

This stony blue would typically be more at home in a living room than a bathroom, and gives this charming water closet an analogous feel – as if we’re tinkling in the lounge. The stained bamboo flooring has shades of burnt orange that sit at the opposite end of the color spectrum to blue, so offers a striking contrast to the walls that remind us that we’re in the bathroom. The toilet is relatively bog-standard (terrible pun intended), while the truncated sink unit is stylish, if not entirely practical in a family bathroom – the curved bowl giving minimal depth for washing. However, the dark wood of the vanity unit, mirror frame, shelving, and picture frames brings some stoicism to this playful bathroom that has aspirations above its quarters. Smart, stylish, and surprising.
Teal fish scale
This wall is adorned with a fish scale tessellation that showcases teals and aquamarines in a mardi-gras of sheeny irregularity. The erratic exhibition of varying shades gives additional dimensional texture to this marvelous tiled skin. It would be easy to spend hours in that welcoming, voluptuous bath just staring at the wall; as if you’ve been swallowed by the whale, bobbing in tepid waters. The bath seat introduces a sudden splash of burnt orange that assists with the accentuation of the sheeny blue, while the over-sized slate-grey tiles bring the entire marine fantasy down to earth, but in a way that feels as though it’s floating in ether. The wet room shower is an additional feature that brings the wet of the sea to this Poseiden pamper palace. Perfection
Soaking in the souk
This souk-style sink and faucet are porcelain perfection that would introduce a little of the exotic into any bathroom. The splashback takes the deepest royal blues from this regal middle eastern design and brings reflective simplicity to the elaborate patterning. The floral design that plunges deep into the sink provides the illusion of additional depth, while the unique trickle tap in patterned porcelain is perhaps one of the most surprising faucets we’ve ever seen here at Houspire. This is stunning design so simply presented. The deep, golden orange of the saffron is a decadent touch that’s used in combination with milk and turmeric to cleanse the face, but I’d suggest caution as this can quite significantly dye the skin. Still, this sink is a beautiful piece that would add exotic charm to any bathroom.
