There's such a wide range of great blue hues, which can be a great thing or a bit overwhelming, depending what kind of decision maker you are. The shade of blue paint you choose can completely change the vibe in your space, from bold and Mediterranean to cool and fresh to grey and calming. Here are 10 great blue paints from Sherwin-Williams that you should consider next time you're looking to change things up. They definitely won't leave you with a case of the blues.

Choose a bold, primary shade of blue for a Mediterranean feel and bold statement, like in the dining room from Cory's amazing loft, above. Try Blue Blood to get this look.

Go a little bit darker to tone down the boldness without losing the impact, as in this stylish dining room. Try Oceanside to get this look.

For even more drama, go really dark with a navy. It's a trendy hue that can actually be considered more of a neutral and that works with many different styles, such as in this eclectic dining room. Try Naval for this look.

If you're looking for something really fresh try a shade similar to the one used in this teen bedroom. Try Blue Bauble to get this look.

A fresh but barely there blue looks great with lots of white like in this classic country kitchen. Try Minor Blue to get this look.

If you want fresh but a bit more minty like the walls in this classy bathroom, try Raindrop.

A grey blue will tone things down and create a more calming effect, such as in this sophisticated Danish bedroom. Try Drizzle to get this look.

A light blue with just a touch of grey is also a great option for a bedroom. Try Sleepy Blue to get this look.

A little bit of lavender in your blue makes for a subtly feminine look, like in this crisp yet soft bedroom. Try Aleutian for this look.

Lastly, if you're looking for a more traditional but subtle blue like the one featured in this impressive House Tour, try Open Seas.
