Plants are living decor. They breathe energy into rooms, add texture to otherwise plain surfaces, and brighten muted spaces. Greenery can contribute an especially pleasing feel to bathrooms, providing tranquility and even improving air quality. However, it’s important to understand which types of plants will thrive in bathrooms and why.

The Unique Bathroom Environment

A bathroom is typically a warm and humid space, and many plants love these conditions. Bathroom temperatures tend to change quickly, as the humidity skyrockets during showers and baths. Many bathrooms have limited levels of sunlight due to small or nonexistent windows. The best plants for bathrooms are those that can tolerate temperature swings and prefer high humidity and low light.

You may be shying away from decorating a bathroom with living plants because of the lack of natural light, but that doesn’t mean foliage can’t flourish there. A variety of plant types — in addition to those listed above — can succeed in a bathroom environment. They can even provide air-purifying qualities to transform your bathroom into a healthier, more soothing place for all who enter. Check out the accompanying resource for more information on plants that do well in the bathroom.
