Popular bathroom plants include ferns, bamboo, snake plants and spider plants. When choosing plants consider the size of your bathroom, how moisture-rich the room is (how many people shower in your bathroom on a daily basis?) and the amount of light that enters the room. Choose a plant that is best suited to your unique bathroom environment.
When it comes to situating plants in the bathroom, options are usually more limited. There’s only so much space to work with and most people aren’t keen on the idea of a jungle-bathroom. Not to worry, adding just one plant in the right location can do wonders for your bathroom.
To get you inspired, we’ve created this gallery of bathrooms with indoor plants. They all feature plants differently.
One commonality is that none of these bathrooms are overrun with plants, showing that less can be more.
1. Plants with white flowers
Plants with white flowers will pop in bathrooms that feature darker tiles.
2. Jutting walls
Nib walls (short sections of wall that jut out) make a great surface for indoor plants.
4. Mini planter box
No space to spare? Consider adding a mini planter box on top of your toilet.
3. Best flower types for bathrooms
Indoor plants suited to the warm, moist environment of a bathroom have robust green foliage and striking flowers. This bathroom pictured on the right utilises sink and open shelving space to feature indoor plants effectively.
5. Statement plants
Simple and stunning, one Weeping Fig makes a huge statement in this modern bathroom.
6. Too much room?
There is such a thing as too much open space, potted plants are used to give this bathroom a finishing touch.
7. Go fancy
Expecting guests? Use indoor plants and ribbon to make things look just a little bit fancy.
