Creating a bathroom with unique style that will last the test of time is anything but easy. Want a good place to start? Begin with your bathroom cabinetry. It's also a great way to give your space a quick update, too. But with so many colors to choose from, how do you go about narrowing down your selection? Well if you ask us, blue is always a classic choice. And with a whole host of shades to choose from, there is literally something for everyone. Scroll on for nine blue bathroom cabinet ideas that will convince you to take the plunge.
1. Make your cabinets the focal point.
A pop of blue can add a sophisticated touch to a plain white bathroom, no extra effort required. For a quick update to your cabinetry, add a fresh coat of paint, change up the hardware, and keep the rest of the room neutral. Complete the look with a streamlined mirror and wall sconces from Schoolhouse Electric for an industrial touch à la Lindsey Brooke Design.

2. Opt for a patterned backdrop.
For a blue bathroom cabinet idea that wows, pick a statement wallpaper to act as the perfect backdrop. The dark blue cabinet in this design by Shannon Eddings complements the pops of color in the botanical pattern on the wall, creating a whimsical English country aesthetic.

3. Top with marble.
Color adds a little bit of je ne sais quoi to the classic all-white look. Take this rich cobalt blue bathroom cabinet for example — paired with mixed metallic finishes, a marble countertop, and fresh white backdrop, the vanity area adds further depth and dimension to a contemporary design.

4. Keep it light.
If the idea of blue bathroom cabinets makes you nervous, why not try a shade that just hints to the color instead? This design by Studio McGee has a coastal air to it, thanks to the barely-there blue vanity with polished chrome hardware, fresh white walls, and a large black mirror.

5. Or, head to the dark side.
Blue literally goes with everything, as proven by Kimberlee Marie, who used her blue bathroom cabinet to tie in the patterned floor tile from The Cement Tile Shop and navy penny tile in the shower. Ooh la la!
6. Play with brights.
We love the unusual shade of blue used in this bathroom design by Emily Henderson — it's both contemporary and classic, especially with those gorgeous floor tiles from New Ravenna. Get the look with patterned blue floor tile, polished chrome fixtures, and industrial light fixtures.

Don't forget about the details when it comes to your blue bathroom cabinet. The harlequin pattern on the front of the vanity adds playful glamour to the room, working with brass fixtures and modern decor to complete the look.

The combination of blue and brass instantly adds a hint of luxury to any space. And it looks like the team over at Oyster Creek Studios got the memo loud and clear, selecting sleek brushed-brass hardware for this blue bathroom cabinet, and then taking it a step further, with brass mirrors and towel holders for a cohesive design.
