Botanical Style Bathrooms – Simple Ways to Get the Look

Filling your bathroom with greenery is a trend that is growing in popularity, especially in the UK. If you are thinking of giving your bathroom a makeover, then why not consider a tropical theme? Below we share five simple ways to help you create a Botanical-style bathroom.

The Bath

The bathroom is a personal space, and it is essential to create a relaxing ambiance. To create a tropical paradise in the bath area of your bathroom, consider using plants such as aloe vera or peace lily. These plants are perfect for the bathroom as they thrive in humid environments. Apart from enhancing the look of your bathroom, plants have been known to purify the air, which can have a significant impact on your overall well-being. You can also add an oil diffuser with essential oils such as eucalyptus or lavender. These oils not only smell good, but they also have a calming and soothing effect. Consider adding some floral petals or bath salts infused with botanical extracts to your bath to enhance your experience.

The Shower

When creating a botanical bathroom, one of the best places to start is the shower area. Install tiles with intricate floral patterns or opt for a glass panel with greenery peeking through from the other side. Consider adding plants to the area or using a botanical-themed shower curtain to complete the look. You could also paint the walls or ceiling with a green or blue hue, to create an immersive natural feel.

Accessories and Accents

For the perfect botanical bathroom, you need to pay attention to the smallest details. Choose accessories such as wicker baskets, wooden trays, or terracotta vessels. Add some lush towels, bathmats, and shower curtains that mirror the tints from the floral patterns you chose. Instead of a regular mirror, opt for one with a wooden or brass frame. These accents will add a touch of warmth and natural beauty to your bathroom.

Materials and Textures

When it comes to botanical bathrooms, natural materials and textures are key. Think of the warm tones of wood, the cool feel of stone, or the smoothness of marble. In addition, you can add some greenery with fresh plants or botanical prints on your walls. These elements all work together to make your bathroom feel like a nature-filled retreat.

Use Botanical Artwork and Prints

Adding wall art that complements the botanical theme is another way to elevate your bathroom decor. Choose artwork featuring florals, leaves, or plants to give your bathroom that serene feel you’ve been searching for. You could also opt for botanical-themed wallpaper in a neutral or muted colour to enhance a refined and stylish look.

Choose Your Plants Carefully

Plants that thrive in a humid environment area, such as ferns, will flourish in your shower area. Choosing plants with a lot of foliage would make the biggest impact, such as the Philodendron, whose leaves have a tropical print. Aloe Vera, lilies, and orchids are other plants that can withstand the environment of your bathroom. Add plants to wicker baskets or terracotta pots to mimic the natural feel of the outdoors. Open shelves filled with greenery will instantly transform your bathroom into a natural oasis.

Size and Shape Matters

Consider the size and shape of your shower when creating a tropical paradise. Hanging and trailing plants will create an overhead canopy effect. Popular plants for this are the Golden Pothos, English ivy, and spider plants, which grow quickly and come in a variety of different colours. If the shower area is shallow, potted plants can be placed on shelves or small stools to give it a natural green vibe.

Colours and Patterns

The colour palette for botanical bathrooms is quite simple: green, white, and neutral. These colours create a calming and relaxing atmosphere, perfect for a spa-like feel in the bathroom. As for patterns, botanical prints, floral designs, and tropical motifs are great options to bring in a vibrant and natural feel.

Add a Touch of Lavender

Lavender is a type of botanical that has been known to help people relax and fall asleep quicker. You can add some lavender oil droplets into your bathroom essential oil diffuser for an aromatherapy trend that helps soothe your senses. Also, display fresh lavender stems in a free-standing vase, a decor piece that adds elegance to your bathroom sink.

Use Hanging Plants

You can also add a touch of nature to your shower by adding some hanging plants such as spider plants or ferns. Hanging plants not only look great, but they also help to purify the air in the shower. Macrame hangers and brass or gold metallic hanging planters are great to add a unique vibe to any bathroom design. It’s impressive how much impact, even a single plant, can do to freshen up your bathroom space.

Use Faux Plants

If you don’t have a green thumb, don’t worry! Faux plants are another excellent option that looks like real tropical vegetation. There are even some made from natural materials that you can purchase from botanical or craft stores. Not only do they require no maintenance or watering, they also look incredibly real, adding a fun and natural touch to your bathroom.

The Sink Area

The sink area of the bathroom is often overlooked, but it is also an essential part of the bathroom. To create a tropical paradise in this area, consider adding some live plants such as bamboo, ivy, or snake plant. These plants not only add an aesthetic appeal to your bathroom but also help to purify the air. You can also add some botanical candles, which will not only look good but also fill your bathroom with a warm and inviting scent.
