5 ways to style plants in your Bathroom

Looking to create your own natural zen-like oasis to begin your day or escape after a long day? Then consider transforming your bathroom into a peaceful getaway by bringing the outdoors inside with the addition of plants! 

Plants not only freshen your bathroom space with greenery or a pop of colour but is the ultimate way to create a relaxing and soothing atmosphere that comes with great air purifying health benefits. Plants generally thrive on the regular doses of moisture that come from your bathroom. Even if your bathroom is on the dark side, certain plants don’t need much. 

So whether you're stuck for space or just don't know how to begin, these tips will help you style your bathroom with plants. 

Spruce up with Shelves

Vanity and floor space can be hot property in bathrooms, so consider installing a floating bathroom shelf to not only create more functional storage but a space to show off a few houseplants. Your plants will fill right at home next to some decorative canisters filled with bathroom essentials or fresh-pressed towels awaiting use on display.

Enhance the Shower

Open shower bathrooms are a growing trend in the interior design industry- and we for one hope they are here to stay, because who doesn't love the feeling of being one with nature in an outdoor shower but in the privacy of being indoors? Styling plants within your shower not only can replicate this freedom and experience but the high humidity of showers and easy access to water are great homes for plants. If you have the extra space, place a plant in the corner or add additional shelving to create a tropic backdrop to your shower.

Fill Awkward Floor Space

The luxury of having a larger bathroom can sometimes be daunting when it comes to styling. They can feel cold, sterile and have that ‘not quite finished’ feeling, but the addition of a large floor plant can create warmth, fill awkward voids and an impactful focal point that keeps the space fresh and modern.

Create Height 

Look to your bathroom ceiling for clever ways to add greenery without impacting precious real estate. Create a jungle-like vibe by hanging a few plants in the corner at various heights or create a dramatic feature over your bathtub with a large hanging spider plant.

Utilise Windowsills

Take full advantage of natural light within your bathroom by displaying plants in your window. Look for plants that require a lot of natural light and humidity. Peace lily and Aloe Vera plants make for a perfect addition to these unique window locations.
