Do you want to attract health, wealth or luck into your life through the Chinese interior design techniques? Feng shui bathroom plants are believed to create a positive energy flow in your home. (Plus they look cool and are low-maintenance!)
FengShuiforRealLife.com says that plants work well in bathrooms because they balance the space. They do this by soaking up excess water in a damp environment, which is healthy for the plant as well as the room itself.

Feng Shui Bathroom Colors
According to Feng Shui & Beyond, the color green elevates tranquility, purification, health and life. In addition, green works well in a bathroom because it creates a feeling of freshness.
Typically, people feel more calm in a green-colored environment. For this reason, bringing plants and the color green into a bathroom helps generate a feeling of relaxation.
Do you want to create a mini at-home spa or a room where you can unwind and de-stress? Keep in mind these simple bathroom Feng Shui tips to make your decorating project a success…
1. Reduce Clutter
First of all, create a space and layout that is clutter-free. Hence, use hanging planters, vertical gardens or trees instead of pots. You don’t want your feng shui bathroom plants taking up lots of valuable counter space, right?
2. Increase Light
Secondly, incorporate light through windows, lighter shades of paint, mirrors and adequate lighting. In addition to reflecting light, mirrors can also make rooms look more spacious.
Not to mention, they make your foliage look twice as big. Therefore, you can use half as many feng shui plants in your bathroom and still achieve a noticeable effect.
3. Ventilate Well
Lastly, keep the room fresh and well-ventilated. As I mentioned above, moisture-loving plants can help with this because they essentially “drink up” the moisture in the air.
