7 Ways to Use Green Tile in your Next Project

7 Ways to Use Green Tile in your Next Project

We’re feeling green – but in the best way possible. Gorgeous green tile is one of our all-time favorites. While it’s not a neutral color, it works in just about any environment. It caters to a broad range of styles, from rustic to sleek, adding a dose of personality to any room. By the time we’re done breaking down our favorite green-themed interiors, you’re going to be feeling “green” too. 

1. Boho-Chic Backsplash

First on our list is this boho-chic kitchen that uses an emerald-y green tile for the backsplash. A jewel-toned green glaze paired with our herringbone tile creates a look that’s artsy and eclectic while also refined and glam.

2. Geometric Green Bar

There’s so much to love about this kitchen bar, but we especially love how it uses a dazzling green tile backsplash to stand out. The geometric pattern makes the backsplash feel fun and playful, while the white cabinets and brass finishes give the overall look a more polished, mid-century modern vibe.

3. Cozy Pub Fireplace

Green tile isn’t just a great addition to your kitchen or wet bar; it can also make your fireplace pop. Case in point, this cozy pub’s emerald green subway tile - the perfect tile for a fireplace. Here, the emerald subway tile looks darker and moodier due to the lighting. The end result is a dramatic fireplace surround that’s modern yet rugged.

4. Earthy Hexagon Entryway

We adore how the green tile is used in this home’s entryway. This specific floor uses our hexagon tile in a glaze that gives off multiple green-ish hues, varying from rustic green to reddish-brown. The varying shades of green create added texture and an organic look-and-feel that perfectly complements the homeowner’s green-thumb.

5. Forest Green Laundry Room

This laundry room uses a dark, earthy green glaze that’s as bold as it is calming. The herringbone pattern adds dimension and texture, with the brush strokes visible on each and every tile. An added bonus? This tile is easy-to-clean and maintainable, which is especially useful in the laundry room.

6. Mid-Century Modern Bathroom

There’s a place for green tile in just about every room, and the bathroom is no exception. This bathroom uses our hexagon tiles in our signature Vermont Pine green as a stylish accent. The dark green pairs well with the natural wood and brass fixtures, giving the bathroom a subtle mid-century modern flair.

7. Sleek Stacked Shower Wall 

A more dramatic use of green tile is in this shower. The deep teal and green tile packs a punch, making the bathroom feel like a true oasis. Stacking the subway tile as opposed to staggering it also makes it look more clean and modern.
