The 10 Best Indoor Plants for Your Bathroom

We all know that having live indoor plants make a home feel more welcoming. Not only are they beautiful to look at but they also provide amazing aromas and help to purify the air. While most people place plants in their kitchens, living rooms and bedrooms, another great option for indoor plants is your bathroom! Being that bathrooms are usually low light, warm and humid with plenty of water available, they make a great environment for house plants. Not every plant will thrive in those conditions but there are several options for you to be able to add a beautiful natural element to your space. Here are the 10 best indoor plants for your bathroom.

Aloe Vera

Aloe vera is a great option as it is easy to grow and does well with temperature changes. The plant requires little care and usually grows only 2 feet tall in indirect sunlight. Another bonus is that the gel inside the leaves are great for treating minor cuts, scrapes or other skin problems, so it is a perfect plant for bathrooms.
