Shades of blues are here to stay.
One of the easiest ways to include this color is with blue bar stools. Here, we show you several different ways to add blue to a bar stool, how they look in the space, and design inspiration.
Why Blue Is The Perfect Color For Your Room
Blue is one of those classic colors that never go out of style. Did you know the ancient Egyptians invented the color blue? It was created around 2,200 B.C. and was known as Egyptian blue.1
Because it has been around for 1000s of years, it’s classic, rather than trendy so your room won’t end up looking dated.
There are tons of shades materials you can use to create different looks depending on our style. From classic and traditional to beachy and relaxed, this color pairs well with a wide range of colors.
Shades of Blue: Choosing The Perfect Blue Bar Stools
With an array of blue hues such as navy, light blue / baby blue / powder blue, royal blue, blue gray, there’s a lot to consider when designing your kitchen. Which one is perfect for you? We’ll take a look at each hue with examples.
Navy Blue Bar Stools
Navy blue is a very dark shade of the color blue. It got its name from the dark blue worn by officers in the Royal Navy since 1748.
This color is often considered a traditional or conservative shade and is great for those who want to create a classic, timeless room.
Designers like Beth Haley remark, “Navy has always been a solid, strong, and steady color that grounds a space and exudes confidence. Like the deep blue ocean, classic and reliable navy can radiate a calmness when used on its own or energize a space when paired with one of the many colors it complements.”2
