What is your perfect bathroom palette? If you’re drawn to shades of blue, you’re in good company. Blue is a natural fit for the bathroom, offering a connection to water and a relaxing, calming effect. There are many hues to play with and plenty of places to feature blue in your space from bathroom countertops and vanity cabinets to wallpaper, paint, and more. Here are five of our favorite blue bathroom ideas to create your dream retreat.
1. Blue bathroom vanity cabinets paired with white quartz countertops
Painted vanity cabinets are a great way to introduce a pop of blue that you can customize to your favorite shade. For bathroom countertops, Cambria’s white Marble Collection™ designs are a crisp and classic complement to vanity cabinets from pale blue to navy, and have the added benefit of being completely nonporous and nonabsorbent.
This white and blue pairing is easy to glam up with brushed nickel or brass hardware, matte black accents, mixed metals, or hand-painted tile.

2. Light blue paint paired with white marble-look quartz
If you want a bathroom with calming vibes and universal appeal, this pairing may be perfect for you. Light blue bathroom walls create a serene backdrop, while Cambria’s Marble Collection countertops lend high-end luxury and maintenance-free convenience.
This combo is also a smart pick if you’re remodeling a bathroom to sell or plan to move within a few years. According to Zillow, light blue or soft periwinkle hues in a bathroom can increase your home’s resale value. Choosing Cambria adds to your return on investment, ensuring beautiful and durable bathroom countertops that appeal to home buyers.

While blue and white is a popular palette for bathrooms, there’s room for blue in trendsetting dark bathroom styles. If you prefer your blues moody and dark, Bristol Blue is the perfect quartz design to pair with deep grays, black, and dark woods. This midnight blue quartz countertop is as dramatic as it is durable.

Other Cambria designs to consider for your blue bathroom countertops include the marbled navy and pale blue Islington (well-suited for a refined coastal palette), the sublty sparkling Parys (stunning paired with gray or white cabinets) and the bright, monochromatic Bala Blue (perfect for a personality-filled powder room or kids’ bathroom).
For neutral bathroom countertops with hints of blue to complement other blue elements in your space, we recommend Kelvingrove (a gorgeous greige with swirls of robin’s egg blue-green), Montgomery (a creamy base with hints of beige and icy blue), and Mayfair (a marbled white with splashes of pale blue, navy, and gray).
4. Blue wallpaper paired with white quartz countertops
Bold wallpaper is a trend we think has timeless appeal, especially in smaller spaces like bathrooms. A fresh alternative to paint, patterned blue wallpaper adds a pop of personality to powder rooms and master baths. Wallpapers in bright blue or turquoise pair beautifully with a crisp, pure white design like White Cliff for bathroom countertops, while pale blues look elegant with creamy white Marble Collection designs.

5. Blue tile paired with white quartz
Incorporating blue-toned tile is another way to add a pop of blue to your bathroom. Turquoise subway tile, Mediterranean blue mermaid tile, or blue patterned mosaic tile serve up vacation vibes and are a striking accent paired with Cambria’s white quartz designs. With Cambria’s superior performance, it’s smart to think beyond the bathroom countertops. If space allows, a Cambria shower bench is a durable and hygienic addition for a luxe escape.
