What are the considerations for effective dark green tiling?

When using dark tiles, of any colour, there are a number of potential drawbacks. The biggest being that dark tiles, and dark colours in general, can make any room feel smaller and darker. So to avoid this fate with your dark or bottle green tiles, you should consider:

  • Combining dark green tiles with lighter colours- creams and slate greys can be combined very effectively with dark greens, as well as plain white tiles of course. No matter how light your room is, you should use the dark green tiles as feature tiles, and a lighter or paler colour for the general background tiling. Not only will this ensure the green tiles draw attention, but it can also help your room stay bright and vibrant.
  • Using gloss finish tiles- glossy dark green tiles can mitigate the effect of lost light, by reflecting the light back into the room from the glossy surface. This can help you enjoy the rich, bold colour, without creating a dark room.
  • Using larger grout lines- if you’re worried that a solid feature wall of dark green tiles will be too much, why not increase the size of the grout lines? Using a pale coloured grout for the best possible effect.
