For most people, bathrooms aren’t the most favorited parts in the house, especially when it comes to decorating. When inspecting our own bathrooms, we usually ensure that we have our essentials, but rarely do we think about how we can easily transform this space in the home into a place where we’d want to spend more time in. There are in fact, several reasons why fake plants are perfect for the bathroom and why you’d want to create your own inner sanctuary with the help of bright, verdant tones that will ease you in a spa-state of mind.
Natural Key Moments Are Spent in the Bathroom
While we don’t realize how much time we spend in the bathroom, rarely do we take into consideration how the time spent in the bathroom is beneficial for the well-being. Imagine, we spend several moments every day reflecting: in the mirror to ensure we’re made-up and even in the bathtub soaking away the stress of our daily routines. And while these moments might be short - wouldn’t it be lovelier to start the morning brushing your teeth with something pretty to look at. While we’ve mentioned in previous posts how plants can help improve your mental health, there’s no reason why an artificial replica wouldn’t help in the same way. And while the moments spent in the bathroom aren’t as long as those spent in the bedroom or kitchen - they are in fact key moments as the bathroom is technically where most of us start and end our day.
Artificial succulents are a great addition to a bathroom. While we offer a wide range of fake succulents that can easily fill small spaces on the counter, don’t forget about an optional hanging version that can easily enhance vertical spaces. If you have the space for it, opt for an alluring artificial arrangement that can add a hint of elegance wherever displayed.
If you’re a person who enjoys a long steam, relaxing amidst warm water and bubbles, then why not complement your leisurely baths with a few handsome (faux) plants. Scientific studies have shown how plants can easily shift one’s negative mental state into a positive one, so think, with every evergreen leaf and every blooming flower you’re actually eliminating and shaking off those long and laborious details of the day.
Artificial floral arrangements are a great way of enhancing that positive-state-of-mind. While a bright, vivid arrangement can start your day with a smile, it also adds a splash of color to the environment. If you lack surface spaces or have limited space, try hanging an artificial plant in the corner of the room or even an artificial wreath on the back of the bathroom door or over the toilet.
Low Maintenance Beauty
For most people, bathrooms don’t usually contain windows, decreasing the amount of natural light that is required for living plants to flourish. Additionally, real plants don’t often hold up well to the chemicals often found in hair sprays, aerosol deodorants, perfumes and colognes. With artificial plants - worry not! As fake plants won’t be harmed by these chemicals nor require natural light, their lifelike beauty can be easily maintained with just the occasional cleansing.
While a fake potted plant can provide a pop of color, an overgrowth of (fake) fern greenery can easily breathe life into the room. And while a hanging version can help you eliminate valuable counter space(s), a horizontal assortment of greenery can easily be showcased on the side of the tub or a window ledge.

Top 6 Décor Trends for Bathroom
1. Bathroom Hanging Plants
Showering al-fresco. One of the most natural activities we can do. Recreate an outdoor jungle shower by hanging bathroom plants above the tub. We recommend using artificial plants that say indoor/outdoor in the title; if they get wet, these plants are resistant to the moisture caused by hot showers. And how can you recreate the jungle look in your bathroom? Easy! You can start by adding some String of Pearl or some Ferns. Since they already come in a basket, all you have to do is add them above the tub. About once a month, wipe with a feather duster to remove dust.
2. Adding Shelves
You might have a bathroom cabinet, but the newest trend is decorating with shelves with brass accents. Cabinets are a thing of the past. Using shelves, you can easily clean and house all your skincare products and bathroom items in one place. Shelves are also more economical than updated shelves, which can get pricey depending on the materials. It's also their ease of convenience; who remembers looking through shelves for a roll of toilet paper?
3. Plant Themed Bathroom
While adding bathroom hanging plants is a good start, to embrace the jungle look, decorate other areas with house plants for the bathroom. Even if you have a small space, you can add small plants for the bathroom by decorating with succulents in the sink area and adding plants close to the bathroom window. Succulents bring a Southwestern exoticness to any space they are housed.
4. Green Living Wall
You've probably already seen this one at your favorite bar, café, or restaurant. This green living wall is often accented with neon lights, or you've probably seen it all over Instagram or Pinterest. It's where you use to adorn a wall with green foliage mats instead of paint. We've seen it on the walls behind the sink, and the finished looked takes the bathroom to another level. To achieve this green living wall mat look, try using this wall mat in your bathroom. To be on the safe side, look for wall mats that say outdoor/indoor or UV resistant in the title; this will ensure the living wall is suitable for environments that can get wet and moisture. Easily hang these, and that's it. This new green foliage never needs any maintenance, just an occasional cleaning with a feather duster.
5. Floral Arrangements
We've embraced the jungle look, but did you know that adding fake bathroom flowers is another great way to spruce up your space. Bathroom floral arrangements bring an aura of freshness and instill a sense of the outdoors. While the bathroom is the perfect environment for roses to grow, you only need to feather dust once a month with artificial flower arrangements and they'll last faux-ever. Some fake bathroom flowers we recommend are roses, peonies, and orchids. Place these flowers on a counter or next to the sink and see them bring ambiance to your space. If you decide to complement the fake flowers with some plants, they'll balance each other, with the flowers softening the look by bringing mixed textures and colors.
6. Mixed Greenery and Foliage
Mixing different Greenery is a great way to achieve that designer look quickly. You might wonder why individual rooms pop out while others look dull? Designers combine different textures to achieve depth and manipulate the eye with these distinct focal points. Bathroom plants are a great way to draw attention to certain areas of the bathroom. For example, if you have a dark-colored wall color, you can soften the look by adding some lighter hued peonies. This is just one bathroom décor idea, but there are many other ways that you can use color to your advantage. Get creative, DIY, and have some fun with artificial bathroom plants that are the perfect way to achieve your dream bathroom look.
