8 ways with green tiles

WHETHER BOLD AND VERDANT OR IN MUTED KHAKI AND OLIVE TONES, GREEN TILES ARE FANTASTICALLY VERSATILE. TRANSFORM YOUR SPACE WITH A WALL-TO-WALL GREEN SCHEME OR INTRODUCE TILES IN SMALL DOSES FOR A MORE SUBTLE WAY TO WORK WITH THIS ENDURING SHADE.

We’re happy to announce that the green tile trend shows no sign of slowing down any time soon. Considering the fact that this timeless colour never really goes out of style, that doesn’t come as a surprise. We’ve encountered so many great examples of green-tiled interiors of late, from bottle-green bathrooms to kitchens in delicate shades of sage. 

The beauty of green tiles is that they can serve as a dramatic accent colour or as a harmonious extension of a natural palette, depending on the tone you choose. Olive-tinged tiles — such as our Bergen stone-effect range — are the perfect addition to an earthy and natural palette, while a darker green tile option like the Verde marble collection will add depth, drama and a distinctly luxurious feel. 

When working with a shade at the stronger end of the green spectrum, it’s definitely worth considering the amount of light your space receives throughout the day. If you’re hoping to achieve a dark and cocooning space, then a matt green tile could work wonderfully. Or, for something more lustrous, choose a glazed finish to lift your colour choice. For more ideas and inspiration, discover some of our favourites from our green tile collection below. 

1. Onyx-look porcelain in shades of jade

We love the smoky green of our Onyx Nouveau Jade Gloss Porcelain. These striking green tiles are a glamorous addition to any space, and pair beautifully with a host of other colours thanks to their mix of warm and cool undertones. Here, the Lumi Stone Effect floor picks up the grey notes in this marbled design, while the terracotta shades of the Riad wall tiles echo the amber accents that contrast so effectively with the pale-green base colour. 

2. Green honed marble tiles

Another way to break up an expanse of dark colour is to choose a green tile with natural veining, such as ourVerde Marl Honed Marble. These opulent tiles range in shade from emerald through to lighter greens, and feature natural marbling that helps to counterbalance the darker tones in the mix. Apply these green floor and wall tiles in a horizontal or vertical layout, and decide upon a stacked or staggered formation depending on the effect you want to create. You can also combine these rectangular green tiles with other formats in the same range, such as hexagonal or herringbone mosaics. 

3. Zellige-style green tiles with tonal variation

Our Zellige 2022 collection comes in a range of complementary shades, but the Tropical Green colourway has to be one of our favourites. The rich green hues of these tonally varied ceramic tiles, combined with their subtle gloss finish, makes the design a fail-safe option if you want to inject some colour into your space. Use alone or pair with other shades from the range, such as Petrol for a cooler scheme, or Sand to add some warmth. 

4. Stone-effect tiles in olive hues

For something altogether more understated, consider the gentle and earthy green tones of our Bergen Olive Decor Matt Stone Effect Porcelain tiles. The Bergen range has a convincing retro feel and comes in both plain and indented designs, which can be combined to create a truly unique wall covering. The texture and matt finish of these green tiles make them an ideal choice for areas you might not immediately think of tiling, such as living spaces, while their muted colours and tonal variation are great for adding depth to an otherwise neutral scheme.

5. Retro textured designs in teal and mint

There’s a distinctly nostalgic feel to our Carnaby Ceramic wall tiles, featuring an interplay of raised surface details that contribute to a subtle geometric effect. The range comes in four carefully selected shades that complement the unique design, two of which – Mint and Teal – work particularly well together. Combine with a monochrome patterned floor tile such as Chaplin Quad, graphic black taps, and a playful blue sink that echoes their ridged design to enhance a bathroom’s light-hearted appeal. 

6. Pink-and-green terrazzo-effect tiles

If there’s one colour combination we never get tired of seeing, it’s pink and green tiles, which is why the popularity of our Pebble Green Terrazzo Effect Porcelain tiles comes as little surprise. Their design features rounded ‘pebbles’ in soft, clay-pink tones, set against a backdrop of dark green. They’re suitable for use on floors as well as walls and look as good when paired with plain tiles as they do as part of a more decorative scheme. In this bathroom, they form part of an eclectic mix that includes our Verbena Honed Marble Hexagon Mosaics.

7. Sage-coloured kit kat mosaics

If bold colour and pattern aren’t really your style and you’re seeking a more approachable way to add interest to your walls, look no further than ourIggy Gloss Porcelain Mosaic tiles. We particularly love these tiles in Sage Green as their soft tones are extremely versatile and easy to live with. A happy match for modern or traditional interiors, Iggy’s ‘kit kat’ design has an innate tactility that enlivens any surface, whether used across an entire wall or in smaller areas, such as inside a shower niche or behind a basin. 

8. Glossy bottle green rectangular tiles

If you love the idea of deep-green tiles but are worried that a shade such as this will be too overpowering, then a green tile with a gloss finish could be the solution. Our Hoxton porcelain collection features a heavy, reflective glaze, which helps to bounce light around your space and offsets the effect of a bold colour choice, such as with these tiles in Bottle Green. The Moroccan-inspired, bejmat-style design also features a gently undulating surface that brings a touch of texture and softness to any palette, whether light or dark.
