Gone are the days when bathrooms were dreary, functional rooms, consisting of only a flush toilet, kept well away from the main houses. For several decades now, bathrooms have entered the house — and they are here to stay.
Nowadays, bathrooms are bigger and better than ever. The puritan notions of bathrooms as impure, filthy places are gone. Today, they are a place of relaxation, luxury, and enjoyment.
Take a look at some of the best styles for primary bathrooms in our gallery.
Fish Scale Tiles and Skylight
This simple bathroom has tiles on its walls that look like fish scales from the white one at the upper walls to the light blue ones waist-high to the ground. This makes an impression of a beautiful koi fish augmented by the few accents of gold on the bathroom fixtures that stands out against the glass and white elements.
Quirky Hexagonal Tiles and Modern Blue
The walls of this bathroom have hexagonal tiles on the upper section of the bathroom with a few colorful tiles standing out in their isolation amongst white. The lower section is dominated by the bright blue tiles of the floor and the modern blue vanity.
Glass and Mirror Bathroom
This beautiful bathroom is not that huge with regards to its size, but the clever use of a mirror and glass makes it seem so much more spacious. The white and grey marble walls and flooring, the white fixtures and the round mirror, bracketed with two lamps, makes this room look like it’s incased in a bubble.

Arctic Blue and Warm Wood Bathroom

It is no wonder that the color blue is a great choice for bathrooms as it resembles water, making the room seem bigger than it actually is. The beautiful designs above reflect a wide variety of styles, elegance and personality. What’s your favorite blue bathroom?
Blue is a serene and inviting color that resembles water, making it a great color choice for your primary bathroom. You can use either light and pale hues of blue or go for dark or navy blue for a more dramatic effect. If you choose to go with darker blues though, make sure there is plenty of natural lighting otherwise it will make your space seem smaller. Out of the 11,410 bathrooms analyzed, we found that only 1.20% of bathrooms have a blue color design.
This photo gallery features several beautiful bathrooms with all different shades of blue. Some use light pale blue, some use baby blue and some use navy blue. Each one of these styles is unique in their own way and they’ll help you design your perfect blue primary bathroom.
Blue Color Schemes
Blue is cool color that can be easily paired with other colors to create a really great color scheme. It looks good with other cool colors, neutrals and even warm colors. The different color combinations each give off different vibes.
Blue with Neutral Colors
This color combination works well together and can be used for both big and small spaces. Pale blue, and white work for small spaces because they create the feeling of being light and airy. While black and gray help to create depth and ground all the colors. For a more modern look, try pairing bright blue and black together. Typically when you use a darker shade of blue, the overall temperature feeling in the room seems cooler, but combined with light neutrals such as white or beige, you’ll prevent that cold feeling.
Blue and Cool Colors
When you combine two cool colors together, such as blue and green or even blue and purple, you create feelings of calmness and relaxation. If you want your primary bathroom to feel like a peaceful getaway, then any of these cool colors combined together are great for that.
Blue and Warm Colors
You can combine blue with contrasting colors such as red, yellow or orange for a bold revitalizing design. Bright warm colors on their own can seem intense and sometimes overactive but you can pair them with a dark calming blue for a great combination. This color scheme works well together if you are looking to create a more cozy and intimate feeling in your bathroom.
