Green bathrooms: 5 ways to get the look

January 18, 2022

Green bathrooms have been tipped as a big trend for 2022. Rather than the classic olive bathrooms of old, we’re opting for a modern take on the look, so get inspired with these ideas…

With so many bathrooms sticking to classic white, it can seem daring to opt for a bold colour, particularly something as vivacious as green. However, there are ways to embrace the green bathroom trend without creating a full 1970s avocado bathroom suite. Whether you want to stick with green walls or tiles, or have neutral walls and coloured sanitaryware, scroll down to get sorted.

1. Tiles

Tiles provide a great way to be creative within a bathroom. You can opt to tile just one wall to show off a splash of colour, or go the whole hog and tile the entire space. These bold green Colour Pop ceramic bosque brick tiles give the room a luxe feel without overpowering the room.

2. Feature wall

If you’d rather stick with a neutral tile shade, another way to embrace the green is by creating a feature wall. The bathroom is a great place to be creative with wallpaper, whether it’s an en suite or main space. This Achillea Aurora wallpaper brings nature directly to your green bathroom so you feel as though you’re lying among the grass while relaxing in the bath.

3. Sage storage

Embracing the trend for green bathrooms is not only about the walls though. You can dip your toe into the trend by opting for green storage units. This Bespoke Parker Howley Vanity unit, painted in Farrow & Ball Calke Green, is the perfect subtle shade.

4. Time for texture

Bring a natural element into your green bathroom with an artificial plant wall. This immediately makes the green a dominant force in the bathroom while giving off those soothing natural vibes. In the below setting, green timber panelling is also used to create an alternative textured effect.

5. Going full green

The subtle effect isn’t for everyone though, and this bathroom shows you can go full colour without it becoming overkill. The shade of sage green is understated, and we love the contrast with the white interior of the bath and basin plus the natural clay hue of the protruding wall.
