If you’re looking for ways to harmoniously pair green and black tiles in your kitchen, you’ve come to the right place. It’s the latest trend, and when looking at dreamy interior design photos, it’s not difficult to see why.
However, you might feel a little hesitant about this colour combination. Black can be quite dark. Plus, green comes in many shades - how do you know which one to pick?
It’s worth trying a few tile combinations. You may be happy to take a leap of faith. But, sometimes even the best quality photos won’t be an exact representation of the tile.

However, if you’re hoping to embrace your outdoor spaces and make the most of your summer, outdoor kitchens can be a great way to do that. It’s a growing trend that is helping homeowners with gardens get more use out of them.
