Inspiring green bathroom ideas 

We all know the healing properties of green. It comes in a huge array of shades, which is why a green bathroom is such a good choice. Get the tone right and you’ll wonder why you’ve never considered this bathroom colour idea before. 

One of the most on-trend of colours, green is perfect for bathroom cabinetry, and you can pick from fresh, verdant shades for a traditional feel, and brighter greens for a livelier space. '

Now more than ever, there is a demand for more exciting colourways in bathroom design,' says Zoe Jones, Senior Content Producer, Roper Rhodes. '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.’

These are our favorite green bathroom design ideas from Roper Rhodes – use them to inspire your remodel.

If your interior style leans towards more traditional designs, green is the perfect colour to introduce old-world charm into your bathroom scheme. The green furniture units sit smartly in the centre of this room, perpetuating modern country vibes thanks to a versatile juniper green finish. With Art Deco inspired floor tiles, and striking black wall lights, 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 décor styles, with framed doors and brassware that can be personalised, you can tailor these units to suit the rest of your bathroom design. 

Perfectly balanced with textured squared wall tiles that feel light and bright, this green bathroom space, though it contains plenty of black accents, is anything but dim or dreary.

Your bathroom is your sanctuary and you take a less-is-more approach with uncluttered spaces, clean lines and a calm, subdued colour palette. At the same time, you want your bath space to feel relaxed and comfortable, so finding a balance between minimal and functional is key.

If you’re after a modern green bathroom design, then a modular furniture system that maximises the usable floor space and hides away bathroom clutter to maintain a contemporary vibe, should be top of your list. The Aruba fitted furniture range from Roper Rhodes ticks all the boxes. 

Assess your storage needs, and choose from floor units, shelving units, multiple drawer units and full height units – or mix and match depending on how much you need to hide away. Fitted bathroom furniture makes an simple job of ensuring your space looks well-considered and effortlessly stylish. 

Why not style up your space with an on-trend, Japandi look? These juniper green units with colour-matched handles, will soften an all-white scheme. Mirror the Aruba’s simple shapes with linear patterns on walls and floors.

Play around with unexpected colour combinations such as juniper green and coral to create a playful, light and airy look in your family bathroom. Choose wall-mounted units (this is from the Scheme range) to allow the light to flood around your bathroom – and keeping the floor clear creates the illusion of more space to work with. 

We all know how that many personal effects can gather in a busy family bathroom, so effective storage is essential. Inside this simple yet stylish storage solution there are organisers to keep your things neat and tidy, inside and out. With sleek handles offering a modern look, the Scheme units will let you showcase your floor and wall tiles in their entirety, meaning it’s a great solution for making smaller spaces look bigger.

These super luxurious green marble tiles won’t just help you turn your shower into your very own oasis – large-format tiles are ideal for maximising the illusion of space in a shower area. 

Classic marble may be centuries old, but this versatile material can feel just as relevant in a contemporary setting.
