Kitchen colour trends 2023 – green tiles

Choosing the right colours can make or break your dream kitchen. Not only do they need to complement each other, but colours must work to create your desired kitchen ambiance. During this series of blogs, we highlight the hottest kitchen colour trends of 2023 and as nature-inspired hues are predicted to be top of the list, we’re showcasing the different types of green you can use to craft your ideal space. 

Earth colour palettes

As we bring the outside into our homes with organic, earthy palettes, there are many shades to choose from depending on your light/dark preference. Some of the most popular kitchen trends now centre on dark greens to promote a rich, forest-like vitality, and varying shades of sage for that calming, cosy cottage feel.

Changing to green kitchen tiles

If your cabinets and kitchen arrangement still work for you, one of the best ways to redecorate your room is to update the walls and accessories.

With that in mind, here’s some tile inspo to get the creative juices flowing:15x15cm Tabarca Verde Gloss wall tile in a kitchen setting with dark grey kitchen cabinets, wood worktop and belfast sink

Bronze handles and kitchen accessories have been added to further enhance the rich vibrancy.

Combos for green kitchen cabinets

In situations where only a complete overhaul will do, dark green kitchen cabinets bring a touch of daring sophistication to your décor whereas lighter, earthy tones project a more rustic visual.  deep green kitchen cabinets with black oven, white gloss tiled wall and splashback and grey tiled floor

Take it to the kitchen floor

The kitchen floor is an important but often overlooked part of kitchen décor; a well thought out kitchen floor can pull together the whole style subtly or overtly, depending on your vision. It also has the power to change the whole feel of your kitchen, simply by being the only thing you’ve updated.

With that in mind, here’s a few ideas to get you going:45x45 Star Sage Pattern Floor Tile

Grey is one of those colours that can set off the shades around it; be it modern, contemporary styling or traditional, farmhouse themes, grey goes well with many different kitchen designs. 

If you want your grey kitchen tiles to ‘pop’, grout in white or a light colour. Prefer to blend them in? No problem; grey grout’s your go-to. But if you want sharp definition, dark grout is where it’s at.
