Green Bathroom Tiles 55 Unique Ways
Creating a spa-like sanctuary starts with the perfect color scheme. Green bathroom tiles create a soothing foundation that will endure through years of use and passing trends. Inspired by nature and imbued with a cool refreshing hue, green looks good on bathroom walls, floors, backsplashes, showers, niches, and tub surrounds.
But don’t just take my word for it. Check out 55 beautiful bathrooms sporting green tile.
Which tile color is best for bathrooms?
With the exception of white, green is the most popular color of tile to use in a bathroom. Does that make it the best? That’s up to you but green does suit nearly any style of bathroom and is generally safe from shifting trends.
While white tile offers a bright and clean appearance, green adds a soothing layer of style and personality to a bathroom that echos the luxury of a day spa or boutique hotel.
What colors go with green tiles in a bathroom?
Again, white is the top choice here. For one, it is the number one color choice for bathrooms on its own, and two, it is effortlessly versatile. But don’t sleep on charcoals, blues, or earthy beige and taupe colors to continue the organic influence that great bathroom designs draw on.
