plants for bathroom

Plants can be a main interior-decorating focal point. Homeowners tend to overlook the impact of a bit of greenery, but flowers and shrubs fit perfectly into many areas of the home – including the bathroom. When you’re decorating and want to insert a little plant life, though, make sure to do some research first. If you just head for the greenhouse without a plan, you’re likely to be overwhelmed by the wide variety. Each kind of plant has a unique scent, aesthetic, and function, making research that much more important.

Using plants in a modern home and bathroom design can be a challenge if you’re unfamiliar with the maintenance required to keep sprouts blooming. Some plants tend to be somewhat unruly and unpredictable, so it’s crucial to determine which varieties work best in certain areas of the home. Though a bouquet is a beautiful touch in any room, it might be best to go with a more sensible potted plant for a long-term option. The bathroom may be one of the most overlooked spaces for plant decor. However, adding greenery to the bathroom has its benefits. Moisture from the shower eliminates the daily need to water certain kinds of flora, and many plants thrive in darker rooms such as small, windowless bathrooms. If you’re ready to freshen up your bathroom decor, plants could be just the thing. Consult the accompanying infographic for more tips on which plants are the best fit for the bathroom.
