Bathrooms with a hue of blue increase the value of your home by as much as $5,440. I know what many of you are thinking, “Honey start the car, we’re going to Home Depot!”. But before you jump in your car lets go through some different styles and hues to find out what matches the style of your house and how to keep it appealing to all home buyers.
Coastal blue bathroom
I love a coastal themed bathroom, but it’s important not to get carried away and over do it. This bathroom from HGTV’s 2015 Dream Home in Martha’s Vineyard got it just right.
A simple solution to break up the cool tones, add a vase of bright orange orchids. If you have good lighting use a live plant. Orchids thrive in a steamy environment like the bathroom. Minimal watering is needed!
A pop of blue
Here is another nod to a nautical cottage feel, I love the pop of color they gave this bathroom with the blue cabinets.
My personal favorite when it comes to blue cabinets are the dark variety with brass accents! This bathroom from Restoration Hardware knocks it out of the park…
Tile is a bit more pricey than a can of paint but it will create a high end, custom look that buyers will fall in love with.
This blue subway tile is a great way to add color and texture to your bathroom. The rustic faucet ties in with the warmth of the wood trim and creates a rustic feel to the space.
Similar tile is used here to completely cover the walls, making a bold statement with floor tiles can break up the solid monotone block of color. Who doesn’t love a pop of print?!?
With this bold color your bathroom will not be forgotten. Buyers will be left saying, “What about that one with the blue bathroom?”. You can use this color to be sophisticated or retro as you can see from these two lovely spaces!
light and bright
Anyone would love to have a light and bright bathroom, it’s calming, neutral, but not boring. The blue tones in this example create a nice contrast against the white trim and tile details.
Staging the bathroom with beautiful objects will create more visual interest and make buyers linger longer in the space. You want them to feel at home with inviting decor.
Before you go on to read the nest blog post, I want you to ask yourselves.. what can blue do for you? Just last weekend I held an open house for a couple that painted their master bath blue. They received multiple offers on the first day over asking price, so many that they requested to cancel the Sunday open house. The entire house was beautiful but that master bath was just perfect!
