1. Measure your space
We know these might not be the most exciting tips, but it's essential to get your space's dimensions still. To measure your area, you're going to need a tape measurer; you can get one at any home improvement store. Next, you're going to make a note of the height and length of this space; as a tip, most homes have ceilings between 8' and 9'. When looking for adequate size, consider a faux plant that is about 1' and .5' shorter than ceilings; this is because if you add a planter, you can elevate the height depending on the size of the planter. Save time and money by getting it right the first time and buying a faux tree that's proportional in your bathroom.
Because bathrooms might be smaller, it's even more critical to maximize the area by ensuring every inch is used up to its potential.
2. Shape your faux plant
Because your artificial plant will arrive in a package, you'll want to shape it, so it looks as lifelike as possible, we recommend looking at the picture as a guide to help you fluff. Here are our top tips when shaping your new artificial greenery
- Bend the branches downward
- Remember, you can bend the branches and manipulate them to look a certain way; begin by pushing the leaves downwards.
- Fluff out the leaves
- After you bent the branches, take a step back and create a little more space by fluffing each leave in an alternative direction to create a slight curve. This will make the foliage look more natural.
- Turn the plant around
- Ensure you cover all your bases and use the image on the product page as a guide to make sure your shaping is complete.

We know the compact nature of bathrooms makes them a bit more complex to decorate in. Even more so, in those on the smaller side, it can be nearly impossible to add a bit of your farmhouse touch.

This is why adding faux plants to the shelves is an excellent alternative for those otherwise hard-to-decorate areas.
