Use your bathroom as a greenhouse! Not only will adding plants liven up the decor, some plants will thrive in the steamy environment, especially with limited or indirect sunlight.
Consider plants that grove in tropical and sub-tropical regions. These plants are often used to high humidity, and very little direct sunlight from a thick canopy overhead. Tropical plants also contribute to cleaning the air. And I don’t mean just smells, but chemicals.
That’s right. It’s a double edged sword to keep your bathroom clean using chemical cleaners. Under cleaning means germs, over cleaning means toxins. Plants can mean filtering the air, so that you can keep using your bathroom cleaners.
According to NASA, the most common chemicals found in indoor air are: trichloroethylene, formaldehyde, benzene, xylene, and ammonia.* The affects of these chemicals can vary based on exposure, but most side effects include irritation to the senses, dizziness, and respiratory issues. However, a number of plants can filter some or all of these chemicals, like spider plants, English ivy, and peace lily.
If space is limited or not conducive to potted plants in the bathroom, there are plenty of other creative ways to incorporate plants.
Spanish moss loves the shower! String some fishing line above the shower curtain rod, and drape the Spanish moss over the string (but not too long or they will get caught in the shower curtain hooks).
