Green is a calming, centering color—the color of rejuvenation—so it's a great choice for bathrooms. Often overlooked, green is a somewhat unexpected, but often stunning shade for nearly any bathroom. From emerald to sage, this color can provide a moment of calm before you start your day or as you get ready for bedtime.
Green is an incredibly versatile and flexible color, perfect for modern bathrooms or classic ones. Whether you want to splash a coat of paint on your vanity (like this stunning hunter green version from craven_haven) or you are into a total tile revamp, here's some inspiration to make you want to go green.

Hunter Green Paint
One of the easiest and most effective ways to use green in your bathroom is simply by repainting the walls with a rich, glorious shade like this one from kathrynlavin. Green paint comes in a wide variety of shades, but this earthy, moody hue is giving us major inspiration. Plus, when paired with the white fixtures and subway tile, it stays light and airy.Continue to 2 of 13 below.

Soft Mint Green
If you want to create a spa-like space in your home, this stunning bathroom from architectseat is the perfect inspiration. The light mint green tiles feel incredibly clean and refreshing, especially when paired with the teak wood details.

Deep Green and Dramatic
This stunning green bathroom from divinesavages is incredibly moody and utterly chic. We adore the art deco wallpaper and the gold bamboo mirror. Thought it's on the darker side of the palette spectrum, this bathroom gives off a luxurious and calming feel.

Deep Green Soaking Tub
What is more luxurious than a soaking tub? A dark green soaking tub, like this one from thehousepotnoodlesbuilt. This bathroom has just enough color to give it plenty of texture and depth, but the contrasting white walls keep it light and open. While black and white will always be a classic combo, consider mixing it up and swapping out black for a dark green instead.Continue to 6 of 13 below.

Wallpaper and Moody Tiles
This lovely bathroom pictured by beckykimball may be small, but it's big on style. We love the pairing of the dark green tiles with the lighter, fresh, beach-y wallpaper. If you're worried that a dark green will overpower your bathroom, pairing it with lighter greens, grays and tans will keep it airy and bright while still packing a punch.Continue to 7 of 13 below.

Pink and Green
We think it's time that pink and green replaced black and white as the best color combo out there. The colors of this fun bathroom from maxmademedoit give off a tropical island vibe we can't get enough of. The soft, muted pink walls are balanced and grounded by the rich green floors and bathtub in this room.Continue to 8 of 13 below.

Plus, this is a fairly easy DIY to do again and again whenever you feel like updating your bathroom space.Continue to 9 of 13 below.

Now is the time to embrace your inner mermaid and channel the deep seas.

Create Your Own Built-In
We love this bathroom from claire.a.ramshaw, which creates the illusion of a built-in shelving unit with a single coat of paint. This rich green not only makes the whole space appear larger, but by painting the shelf the same shade as the wall, it almost blends into it and becomes invisible.
We often shy away from dark colors because we're scared they will make small spaces feel claustrophobic, but the truth is that a deep moody color like green will actually push the walls out and give the room more depth.
