If you are considering a home remodel and are looking at natural stone, one unique option is Blue Bahia granite. The stone, quarried in central Brazil, has a striking blue color. From a distance, Blue Bahia, which is sometimes called Azul Bahia, the stone is bright blue. As you get closer, you see that the stone actually has varying shades of blue while some slabs will have patches of white throughout. In fact, the bedrock of the stone is bright white behind the varying shades of blue. When viewing Blue Bahia from above, you get the feeling you are looking down on Earth from outer space.
Blue Bahia Designer Thoughts
Because the stone is a vivid blue, it can overpower a room. However, it is the perfect selection for a large walk-in shower as blue is a calming color. If you are standing in your shower, surrounded by blue walls, you will feel more calm and relaxed as you prepare for your day or night. Add natural wood cabinetry and floors to offset the blue of the granite. It would also make the perfect surrounding for a whirlpool tub, creating a relaxing atmosphere reminiscent of a spa.
