Although blue masonry paints are less frequently found in less sunnier climates like the UK, blue masonry paint is frequently found in hotter countries – think Cuba, Florida’s Key West and The Caribbean. Blue masonry paint helps reflect the tropical skies and the sea, it is a perfect upbeat colour to choose! If anyone tells you blue is a sad, gloomy colour just tell them that!

There are many UK exceptions such as Tenby or Brighton, where houses tend to be a bit more bold!

The idea is to dig further into your thinking of what blue is. There are many different shades that could inspire you. Some of the most popular shades of blue masonry paint are:

  • Silver Blue
  • Baby Blue
  • Pastel Blue
  • Summer Blue
  • Oxford Blue
  • Royal Blue
  • Duck Egg Blue
  • Navy Blue
  • Slate Blue
  • Mediterranean Blue
  • Azure Blue
  • St Tropez Blue
  • Moroccan Blue

In recent years, shades of blue are appearing in UK countryside or seaside settings alongside the typical pastel pink or buttermilk shades. If you are looking for a colour to compliment your neighbours in a terrace setting, pastel blue masonry paint can be an ideal solution.

Dark blue masonry paint can also compliment grey masonry paint. If you are looking for a different colour for accents for your home, blue may be the way to go. Alternatively, if you do not feel brave enough to completely repaint your house blue, think of it as a colour for window frames, mullions, soffits and gutters.
