30 Best Green Bathroom Ideas for a Calming Dose of Nature-Inspired Color (2)

If you love color but want to maintain a calming feel, look no further than a green bathroom. From sage to olive, forest, emerald, jade, or mint, there’s a nature-inspired shade of green for every taste and style, from modern to midcentury or traditional.

Green is a versatile color that can be used anywhere from wall paint and cabinetry to shower, backsplash, or floor tile. It pairs well with brass, silver, black, or copper hardware and marries well with blues and neutrals like gray, white, black, or cream. Or you can contrast green with shades of pink, orange, or yellow for a bolder look.

Check out these green bathroom ideas in a range of styles, sizes, and shades for inspiration.
