10 Plants to Add to Your Bathroom
Nowadays, a bathroom is a lot more than where you take a shower or perfect your skincare routine. With a fresh coat of paint, charming wallpaper, or statement-making tile, your bathroom is just as much a design moment as any other room in your home. So why not accessorize it with some plants? Don’t let their trendy status fool you; plants have a lot more to offer than good looks. In fact, studies show many indoor plants have also been proven to improve your home’s air quality and to reduce stress, both of which are integral to creating a spalike bathroom.

And while bathrooms might be warm when showering or using a blow dryer, they usually cool down overnight—and those fluctuating temperatures can wreak havoc on your green thumb. Another factor to consider? Since many bathroom have few to no windows, you’ll want to find plants that can grow in low-light conditions.
Finding a plant that can withstand that trifecta of humidity, shifting temperatures, and low-light conditions might be challenging, but it’s not impossible. To streamline the shopping process, read on for our favorite plants that are compatible with your bathroom.
