2021 Tile Trends: Green Tile

As we anticipate Coverings ‘21 (less than a month away), thinking about the 2021 tile trends we expect to see is helping us pass the time.

This week brings us to green tile, a trend we couldn’t be more excited about. Of all the colors we can explore, green ceramic tile options are enormously varied. We’re here to show you that green tile can be everything from retro to regal, and then some.

Whichever decor style you’re going for, there’s a perfect green tile design waiting for you. Here are just a few of our favorites.

Natural Green Tile

Part of the reason behind green tile’s recent rise to popularity is a simultaneous surge in biophilic design, an initiative to incorporate nature into interior design. If the biophilic design is for you, green tile comes in numerous styles to help you achieve a natural look, including the variegated tile in the kitchen backsplash above.

Playful Green Tile

Fish scales make any tile design fun, and this green tile is no exception. We love the unique layout of the fish scale tiles and can think of no better word to describe it than “groovy.”

Pastel Green Tile

Pastel green tile such as this bathroom backsplash helps create a space that’s always minty fresh. We especially love the varied texture of the tiles, which adds visual interest without stealing the show from the unique color itself.
