Blue is known as a calming color, which makes it an ideal choice for designing a relaxing oasis. But did you know it could also potentially add value to your home?  

According to a 2021 study by Zillow Group, a home with a light blue bathroom could be worth about $5,000 more than its competitors.

However, you don’t need to stick to light blue if the shade doesn’t work well with your vision. From cool, gray-tinged hues to deep navy, there are a wide variety of blues to choose from on the color spectrum to give your bathroom a fresh new look.

Whether you choose a new tile pattern, paint color, or decorative accent, discover blue bathroom ideas from KALLISTA.
