Blue Tiles Ideas – Home Decor Inspiration With Blue Wall Tiles


Blues are usually seen as calm and soothing colours. In nature, blue is associated with the sky and water and as such, it is a popular colour for kitchens and in particular, bathrooms. In these areas of the house, blue tiles give a clean and fresh look, while being practical and durable decor to use for splashbacks and walls (since these are particularly humid and regularly-cleaned areas of the home).

Tiles are ideal for bathroom walls as they cope well with moisture, humidity and regular cleaning. Blue tiles are great in a bathroom because they remind us of water and sky, while being calming and soothing in colour.

Blues in Home Decor

Although blue is most often thought of as a cool or cold colour, pale blues tend to feel coolest, whereas darker blues can in fact feel warm. Pale blue decor can help add light to a darker room, or make a smaller room appear larger. Darker blues can help larger rooms feel cosier and more opulent and can also give an older, more traditional feeling to a room.

Darker blues can help a room feel older, more cosy and even opulent.

Blue Tiles Ideas

Blue and white is a popular vintage colour combination (think Willow ceramics and Toile de Jouy prints), which suits period homes well. Some of the tiles we’ll look at here have a modern edge – for example, blue roses don’t grow naturally (if you do see a blue rose it is generally a white rose, dyed blue).

Blue is often thought of as a masculine colour. If you’re concerned about blue giving a look which is too masculine for your tastes, a great way to add a feminine touch is to include some tiles with floral designs.

We’ll start off looking at some darker blue tiles ideas.

Patterned Dark Blue Tiles

One way to use these tiles in home decor is to create a check pattern, alternating the patterned tiles with plain-coloured tiles. Check patterns allow a tile pattern to cover a larger area without being too overpowering.
