Got an exciting bathroom renovation on your project wish list? If you’re on the hunt for inspiration for your dream space, we’ve got some great green bathroom ideas that will inject a luxury feel into this all-important room.

If green is on your radar this year, you’ve landed in just the right place for some renovation inspiration. This colour is bang on-trend for bathrooms right now, and Zoe Jones, Senior Content Producer for Roper Rhodes agrees with us. ‘Now more than ever, there is a demand for more exciting colourways in bathroom design,’ she says.

Why green? ‘From rich, classic hunting green to soft sage and lustrous emerald, we feel that green has made the successful transition from kitchen to bathroom and our newest collections strongly reflect that trend,’ says Zoe. And honestly? We couldn’t agree more.

Injecting green into your space through the addition of just one piece of decor or furniture might be just what your bathroom needs. Why? Whether your bathroom lacks windows or is flooded with light, green will help bring the outdoors in. Plus, the colour green is associated with nature and health. We recommend a subtle shade of green so as not to drown a bathroom (no pun intended) as a brighter shade might dominate the space.

Inspiring green ideas for your bathroom

Bathrooms are synonymous with relaxation, and whether your idea of bliss is a steaming hot dip in your tub or a long shower spent singing to your favourite songs, you’ll probably agree. Green is a calming colour that is a great choice when looking to update your bathroom scheme.

Let’s get started with our 5 favourite green bathroom ideas to inspire your renovation, and motivate you to give your bathroom a refresh.

1. Choose green for a traditional look

If your interior style leans towards more traditional designs, green is the perfect colour to inject old-world charm into your bathroom scheme. The green furniture units sit smartly in the centre of this room, giving off modern country vibes thanks to a versatile juniper green finish. With Art Deco inspired floor tiles, and striking black wall lights and this classic bathroom is given a smart, modern twist.

Clean lines and a luxury hand-painted finish are a key element in this stunning country-style Burford range. Perfect for a range of home decor styles, with framed doors and personalisable brassware, you can tailor these units to suit the rest of your bathroom design.
