Remodeling and adding new bathroom flooring, countertops, cabinets, sinks, and fixtures are fun but even Quest Interiors appreciates the final touches that can make your dream bathroom complete. Our interior designers appreciate that by adding some plants to your bathroom, you can create a soothing environment. However, finding house plants that will thrive in a bathroom isn’t always easy. You need plants that love humidity. Quest Interiors has put together a list of our favorite plants that will thrive in your bathroom and elevate your remodel.


Adding a fern is a great way to start incorporating house plants in your bathroom. Ferns come in a wide variety of and can be light or dark-colored. Ferns also are shade-loving, so if you don’t have a lot of natural lighting, this plant would do well in your bathroom.

Light Exposure: Varies by species
Soil Needs: Most do well in moist, well-drained potting mix.

Lucky Bamboo

To turn your bathroom into a spa-like getaway, we recommend potting some lucky bamboo. While this plant isn’t actually related to the invasive bamboo plant, it is perfect for bathrooms due to its love for indirect light and its love for the water.

Light Exposure: Indirect sunlight/shade
Soil Needs: Well Drained


If you have a lot of natural light in your bathroom, you can tie the well-lit space together with an Orchid. This flowering plant comes in a variety of colors and species. Some species are planted in soil, while others are epiphytes (air plants) that absorb moisture from the air.

Light Exposure: Needs light to bloom
Soil Needs: Depends on the species

Golden Pothos

This plant is great for beginners who are getting their feet wet caring for houseplants. It’s a very forgiving plant that loves humidity. Golden Pothos sprouts heart-shaped leaves and grows quickly, making them perfect for hanging.
