Take advantage of the natural humidity found in the bathroom to introduce plants to your decor. Whether your bathroom is bright or windowless, there are many varieties of houseplants that will thrive in the humid, tropical-like conditions of this room. Plants in the bathroom create a lush, spa look and a fresh feel.
In addition to cleaning the air, research has shown that green leafy plants evoke a sense of calm and comfort, while flowering plants lift our spirits and make us feel more cheerful. It therefore makes perfect sense to add a touch of green to the room where we begin and end each day!
Some plants to consider for a bathroom with plenty of natural light are ferns, azaleas, gardenias and orchids. For low-light bathrooms, go with aloes, bamboo, begonias, spider plants, dracaenas, ficus and philodendrons.
Plants can add height and drama to any space – even the bathroom!
