The power of the plant is becoming more apparent as we begin 2022, with more homeowners opting for a more botanical bathroom design. The house plant is now a staple part of the décor in many homes and with good reason. In this month’s blog, we look at the benefits of bringing nature into your home and more importantly into your bathroom.
Moisture in the air creates an ideal environment for bacteria to breed in, which is why mould formulates on your surfaces. Certain plants are ideal for absorbing the moisture out of the air. Therefore, preventing issues such as damp and mould arising in your bathroom. Plants such as the Eucalyptus plant have fantastic qualities to absorb the additional moisture in the air.
No matter how much you clean your home – there is often more toxins in the air inside your home than there is outside. Its hard to believe, but studies have shown there can be up to five times more toxins within the home. Certainly, in the bathroom, where we wash off the day, expel our waste and often spray with chemicals. Therefore, it is a good idea to have plants in your bathroom such as the Shower plant which purifies the air.
