Give yourself an energy boost with orchids


From bathroom to spa

Take a morning to transform your bathroom into a spa. Fill up the tub, use your favourite bath salts, play some soothing music, light some candles, and place a few orchids around – if they weren’t there already. Studies in recent years have shown that people experience less tension when they look at plants. Perfect for your home spa! And with their spectacular blooms, they bring colour, elegance, and an exotic touch to the bathroom. Additionally, orchids thrive in bathrooms due to the high humidity. Most orchid species originate from tropical rainforests, so they appreciate the moist environment. Just make sure there’s enough natural light coming into the bathroom.

Caring for your orchids

After pampering yourself in your home spa, it’s time to focus on your orchids! Remove dead leaves, dust off the green leaves so they can absorb enough sunlight again and water your orchid. By caring for your plants with full attention, you can momentarily forget about everything else. Your orchids will be grateful, and they’ll show it by growing even more beautifully. Altogether, this will make you feel better too!

Orchids in the bathroom for a tropical oasis of well-being

Although the bathroom is not one of the places where we spend several hours a day, it is one of the most important rooms in the house. This is where we start the day in the morning and this is where we spend the last minutes before going to bed every evening; we refresh ourselves under the shower or relax in a soothing bubble bath, come to rest and deal with ourselves. In the bathroom, the atmosphere should always be as pleasant as possible, serving our well-being and relaxation. But how do you create the spaces in these tiled and mostly functional spaces? Read this article to learn more about orchids in the bathroom for an oasis of well-being.

Studies in recent years have shown that people are particularly good at reducing tension and regenerating faster when they look at plants.

With their spectacular flowers, they bring color, elegance and exoticism into the room at the same time.

High humidity and warmth are no problem

With over 25,000 species, orchids belong to the largest family in the plant kingdom. It is thanks to breeding successes that we can now decorate our homes with numerous of these beauties. Since most are originally native to tropical rainforests, they do well with bathrooms’ warmth and increased humidity. Another advantage: they like it bright, but don’t necessarily have to stand on the windowsill. This way you can give them a place in the bathroom where they look beautiful, while the bathroom window can remain free for regular airing.



The fact that there is relatively little space in many bathrooms is not a problem for orchids. They are about ten centimeters high, rising to about 45 centimeters. Orchids grow in a relatively small pot and do not grow particularly large. So even in the small bathrooms, they fit fine. Even with the smallest orchid, you will have an exotic flower bouquet for months. You could say: orchids transform any bathroom into an oasis of well-being!

6 tips for styling your bathroom with orchids

Styling your bathroom with orchids can provide several benefits for both your physical and mental health. It’s a good idea to add orchids to your bathroom decor because plants improve air quality, increase relaxation and they can add a natural refreshing touch to your bathroom decor.

Styling your bathroom with orchids


Choose the right type of orchid

There are many different types of orchids, so it’s important to choose one that will thrive in your bathroom. Phalaenopsis orchids, also known as moth orchids, are a popular choice for bathrooms because they originate from the tropics of the rainforest, and actually love a moist environment.

Indirect sunlight

Place your orchid in a spot with indirect sunlight. Orchids need bright, indirect sunlight to thrive, so a bathroom with a window that gets plenty of natural light is ideal.


Think about placement

Consider where you want to place your plants in your bathroom. Hanging orchids – like Vanda’s – can be a great option if you have limited counter or floor space, while larger plants can make a statement in a corner of the room.

While orchids can add beauty and colour to your bathroom, it’s important to remember that they require maintenance. Water your orchid when the roots look grey, by submerging the orchid in the water, letting it drain for a moment and putting it back into the pot.

And last but not least: add some decorative accents. Orchids are beautiful plants on their own, but you can enhance their beauty by adding some decorative accents to your bathroom. Consider placing your orchid on a decorative tray or adding some small plants or flowers in coordinating colors to create a beautiful and cohesive look.



Overall, incorporating plants into your bathroom design can help create a more pleasant and healthier environment, promoting relaxation and wellness.

Orchids in your bathroom: the perfect spot!

Placing orchids in your bathroom is not a common occurrence but as the orchid is originally from the tropics of the rainforest, it actually prefers to live in a moist environment. As long as the orchid has access to some natural light, you will have a bloomin’ good orchid to brighten up your bathroom. Here are some tips on how to do it best:

Create a tranquil oasis

The bathroom is renowned as a place of relaxation and the fewer objects in it the better. Keep it simple with a touch of colour to create small bursts of energy. Placing Phalaenopsis orchids in your bathroom on the side of the sink is a simple way of creating a tranquil oasis as it requires minimal styling. It adds a touch of colour to a neutral colour scheme!

A hint of romance

Adding a hint of romance to your bathroom is extremely easy once you know which orchids to choose. Chose a pastel-coloured pot and include an elegant, pink Phalaenopsis – this combination oozes romance. If your bathroom is dark, combine a pot with a Phalaenopsis in rich purple, the most romantic colour of the year.
