Benefits of Floral Arrangements in the Bathroom

Flowers are the natural choice to create a spa-like bathroom, adding natural beauty while contributing to the serene atmosphere. 

The benefits of including faux floral arrangements in your home bathroom include:

  • Mood enhancement – Just the sight of flowers has the power to boost your mood, reducing stress levels at a remarkable rate. 
  • Natural connection – A connection to nature helps us feel balanced and grounded. 
  • Aesthetic beauty – Bathroom designs are often clean and sterile. Faux florals and greenery add a welcome beauty to a blank slate. 
  • Mindfulness – Creating faux floral arrangements and gentle upkeep are mindful acts that can be meditative in practice. 
  • Seasonal changes – Changing your floral designs throughout the year is a good way to freshen your space, adding new beauty with each new season. 
  • Enhance your ritual – The addition of faux floral arrangements makes every part of your daily ritual more beautiful.

Choosing the Right Flowers and Greenery for a Spa-Like Home Bathroom

While flower and greenery choices are largely personal based on preference or special meaning, some best suit a spa-like atmosphere. 

Popular blooms and greenery for tranquil home bathrooms include:

  • Calla LilyPure, cream and soft purple blooms, minimal, elegant
  • Eucalyptus Lush, gentle green-gray, 
  • Lavender Calming, stress-reducing, relaxing, burst of purple
  • Bamboo (shoots or leaf stems)Bringer of luck, modern, minimalist, chic
  • Orchid – Elegant, low-maintenance, minimalist, luxurious
  • Gardenia – Relaxing, tropical, lush leaves, pure white petals
  • Air plant – Contemporary, on-trend, perfect for terrariums
  • JasmineTranquil, calming, gentle, sweet

In general, plants with long lines, white blooms, and dark greenery are all well-suited for the spa home bathroom. 

Other colors well-suited include cool-toned palettes of gentle blues, greens, and purples. 

Floral Arrangement Ideas for a Tranquil Bathroom

Ready to add simple flower arrangement ideas to your spa home bathroom? 

Here are a few arrangement ideas to get you started:

All Green

An arrangement made purely from faux greenery adds a lush color to your space without overpowering it; it speaks directly to nature, with grounding leaves, moss, and branches. 

Try a bundle of ferns or monstera leaves in a tall, neutral vase; this looks wonderful in a floor planter or minimalist plant stand. 

Highlighted Orchids

Create a luxe, elegant display by adding bamboo to a potted orchid. 

The bamboo serves as a tranquil backdrop for the orchid’s glamorous blooms. 

Japanese Influence

Known for its attention to lines, balance, and harmony, the Japanese tradition of Ikebana is a perfect addition to a serene bathroom. 

Create a simple arrangement using long, lush leaves and calla lilies.

Floating Displays

Water is a large component of any bathroom. Highlight this important element with a floating floral arrangement. 

Include petals or blooms in a glass bowl of acrylic water. 

You could also create a taller display in a glass cylinder vase, adding LED candles to accent the design. 

Zen Garden

A statement of tranquility, you can easily create your own zen garden made from pebbles, sand, and faux succulents. 

Clean White

All-white floral arrangements perfectly suit a spa home bathroom, appearing clean and pure within the room. 

My top picks for all-white flowers include lilies, roses, hydrangeas, anemones, and tulips. Mix them for a textured monochromatic arrangement, or use a single variety for a simple design. 

Hanging Wreath

A grapevine wreath suits most spaces, depending on how you adorn it. 

Hang a small wreath in your home bathroom, decorated with small blooms of chamomile, daisies, lavender, and blue belles.

Luxe greenery is encouraged, with ivy and eucalyptus looking especially at home. 

Caring for Faux Flowers in Your Spa Home Bathroom

Caring for faux flowers entails far less maintenance than fresh-cut flowers. Still, there are a few things you can do to ensure your faux arrangements have a long life:

  1. Clean your flowers as needed using gentle soapy water. 
  2. Avoid direct sunlight; the sun will fade the colors of your faux flowers over time. 
  3. Always opt for high-quality materials, choosing silk over polyester when possible. This will ensure the longest lifespan for your designs. 
  4. Keep your designs away from water when possible. It can damage your materials over time. 
  5. Rotate your arrangements throughout the year, storing them safely in a cool, dark place.
  6. Dust faux flowers regularly with a dry, microfiber cloth. 
  7. Check materials for damage and repair as needed.
