Farrow & Ball's Hague Blue – a deep blue hue — has been crowned the UK's most popular paint colour for the kitchen, living room and bedroom.

Exploring paint colours from Dulux and Farrow & Ball, research conducted by luxury online bathroom retailer Drench identified the most searched for paint colours for each room in the house – and dark blue hues continuously top the list.

F&B's Hague Blue (pictured above) is a strong, dramatic and timeless hue with green undertones, which works wonderfully to ground skirtings or used as an accent colour on walls. But while this F&B colour took the top spot for the kitchen, living room and bedroom, it was Dulux's Sapphire Salute that was found to be the most popular colour in the bathroom.

The research also found that a variation of blue hues accounted for 55 per cent of the 20 most popular paint colours, followed by grey (40 per cent), and pink (five per cent).
