Wall painted in a deep blue paint

Blue paint provides a calming sense of serenity in many homes but can also add intensity or provide cooling in equal measure.

From light blueish-greys to deep, dark blues this primary colour can alter the mood of a room whether it is used as a ceiling and walls paint. Like other colours that are primary, blue makes a bold, vibrant statement wherever it is used. Ideal for children's bedrooms, it can also be used to great effect in living rooms and dining rooms so don't forget to consider it for all parts of the home.

All Blue Paint Colours

Often used in bathrooms because it can evoke the sea or a deep pool of water, blue paint can divide opinions somewhat. Often seen as cooling it can create a sense that it lacks warmth to some. However, if you also think of a clear blue sky day, then this association isn't always spot on. Of course, grey-blues and purple tones can have a cooling effect when they are on view but there is no need to use blue on your walls this way unless you want to.

In short, blue can be bright, vivid, easy on the eye and provide an inspiration. It can suit small rooms, kitchens, reception rooms and outdoor woodwork in equal measure. Find out why this colour is increasingly used in the home and explore why it might shift your current perception of it as an interior décor choice.

Blue with white trim looks good even when there is natural wood in the room.
