Let plants be the protagonists

As we mentioned, plants are a vital component in a natural bathroom. They generate sensations of serenity, spaciousness and freshness. You can place them in different spots, such as in pots on the dresser or side tables and you can have hanging plants too. Where you put them will depend on the amount space you have.

Now, what are the best plant species to have in the bathroom? It does depend on your personal taste, but also on the environment specific to your bathroom.

Sansevieria

This is one of the first choices when you want to have a natural bathroom. Also known as mother-in-law’s tongue, this plant adapts to humid spaces. Its shape and variety of green tones make it perfect for decorating this type of bathroom.

Cactus

Cacti are often used to create a simple but striking look. When it comes to using them in your bathroom, it’s best to be subtle. They must be located in places where they look great and make an impact. Place them on the sink or on a decorative table and have one next to your cleaning products.

Palm trees

Palm trees add an exotic touch to a natural bathroom. They’re perfect if you have a large space and it’s ideal to put one in a corner, accompanied by a small table.

When it comes to decorating, the colors you choose play an important role. The tones on the wall will reflect what you want to project. In this case, you’re seeking to connect with nature, serenity and freshness.

It’s essential to use light colors on the walls, floors and on your accessories if you want to have a natural bathroom. Opt for white walls where possible, as white will make your bathroom look spacious, calm and clean. You can combine this tone with shades of beige, but always keep to light tones.

Materials for a natural bathroom

Stone sinks are very durable and resistant.

Wooden materials

Decorating a bathroom in this style also involves carefully choosing the right materials for your furniture. Wood is a top choice for a natural bathroom, since it provides a classic, versatile and warm feeling.

In addition to this, you can combine it with any color and accessory. It’s a timeless material.

Choose stone

When designing a natural bathroom, tiles take second place. Choose stone to adorn the areas around your sink, shower and tub, to ensure you’re completely connected with nature and to bring the outdoors in. Complementing wood, plants and light tones, stone is both simple and stunning.
