There are a number of things to consider about your space before you choose which shade of dark blue walls you intend to incorporate in your home, including lighting, furniture, and available space.
Dark blue walls will suit a room with high ceilings and lots of natural light more than others, as the darker shade can otherwise deplete a room of the guise of space. If your space is limited, then consider your fifth wall – the ceiling. Painting the ceiling a darker hue of blue will naturally create a cocoon of calm, perfect for any room in the home.
Depending on the personal style of the decorator, there are various themes that can be created with dark blue walls. For a beach vibe, pair deep ocean blues with light wood and white stripes for an instant nautical feel, while adding in luxe furnishings in velvet or fur to a deep teal room will automatically generate a sumptuous and decadent space perfect for hosting.
Dark blue walls are also a wonderful idea for high-traffic areas, as they disguise dark scuffs and stains. Pick a colour from our Easycare range and your walls will be washable too!
