Blue continues to perform

Over the past few years we've seen rich, bold shades of blue make their presence known in the world of interior design.

Bertch's Cobalt solid color finish creates a calm and grounding environment infused with quiet confidence. Cobalt is a deep shade of navy blue that is timeless, but there is a natural texture to it that evokes the night sky or the abyss of the sea. There is a sense of awe to it that can be empowering, infusing a sense of confidence into any space.

Create a spa-like look and feel with a blue bathroom

Blue is a natural color choice for bathrooms because it possesses certain reassuring qualities. Most people find a sense of peace and tranquility in the color blue. It invites reflection, and has a way of relaxing your thoughts to allow for greater concentration and focus.

White may be the most popular color choice for bathrooms at the moment, but make no mistake, blue is close behind — and gaining on it. The two colors already make for an iconic color combination, as blue and white together brighten and add drama to a space.

Central to the appeal of the color of blue is the variety of shades from which to choose. Most homeowners desire a spa-like feel for their bathrooms, and blue can often be the key to achieving it. You would be hard pressed to find a cleaner or more tranquil aesthetic than coloring your cabinets and countertops with soft shades of blue.

The more you dig into the different shades of blue, the more colors you’ll find with which to work. If you have a bathroom with a source of natural light, the perfect complement would be a color scheme of pale blue and white. It is a traditional color combination, and one that feels both warm and serene. On the opposite end of the color spectrum, the darker shades of blue, like coastal blue and midnight blue, offer even more versatility. Midnight blue, in particular, provides a striking color contrast when paired with white tiles and fixtures.

Blue Bathroom Vanities

If you are looking for a shade of blue for your bathroom that guests will associate with the ocean and the skies, much like Naval, consider a cobalt bathroom vanity from Bertch. Bertch’s Cobalt is a soothing and peaceful color, capable of imbuing a space with stability and calmness. You can see for yourself in the bathroom vanity pictured below, which features cabinets with a Bertch cobalt finish, what a rich and cool color it is. Cobalt also pairs well with natural wood.

Blue cabinets in general have seen a spike in popularity over the past several years. Now highly sought after by trendy homeowners and remodelers, you’ll often see blue cabinets paired with white marble for contrast. Many homeowners are opting for darker shades of blue for their vanities and complementing them with brass fixtures like hardware and faucets.


If you're wanting a more subtle touch of blue, you might want to take a look at our solid grey color Loft. It is a medium grey hue with definite blue undertones, imparting a calming and serene feel. It is a color with a natural feel that would be right at home as part of a more earthy bathroom color scheme.

But the blue in your bathroom does not have to be limited to the vanity. There are more ways to incorporate it into your space, from painting the walls blue and pairing them with a light colored vanity to working more blue into the artwork of your bathroom decor.
