Looking to redo your bathroom? Adding a tropical twist is all the rage these days. From lush houseplants to rich hues, now you can have a mini vacation every time you use the toilet. Here are a few tips to boost your island vibes.
Lush Plant Life
The No. 1 tip for a tropical vibe in your bathroom is to add indoor plants. Whether you train a creeping vine to travel across the wall or tuck a potted philodendron into the corner, plant life is key for that jungle vibe. Try lining succulents along the window, a rubber tree on the floor, or even add an orchid or shade-loving fern to your shower.
For cabinetry, choose a rich brown to pair with your white walls and lush flora. Try a natural slate floor or slate tiles for your bathtub or shower.
Clean lines and open space are popular with tropical-themed bathrooms. Tuck toiletries into the cabinets and leave the walls bare. The only thing you can’t have too much of in a tropical bathroom is tropical plants.
