Trading deep blue tile for high quality paint?

4 years ago

My kid really wanted to do a wall of deep blue tile like this Ivy Hill tile in his bathroom (one wall with floating vanity, toilet and large mirror). The shower walls will be 12"x24" white tile (he requested white so he can better see the stuff he is required to clean).

Concerned about resale value of such a "statement" wall, I talked him out of the tile and into paint instead. Happy to splurge on high end paint (or some other treatment) at this point. Anyone have thoughts on how best to get a rich, deep effect in blue paint? We've used earth pigment paints and lime paint in the past for a super rich look, but they got pretty wasted in the bathroom. Thanks!
