Spice Up Your Bathroom By Adding Flowers To It

by Lori Madden 04/21/2019

Not many people would readily consider the bathroom as the prime spot for flower decoration but propping a small vase of flowers on your vanity is a natural yet high-impact way to add a layer of color and a touch of luxury to your bathroom.

A small vase of colorful can also bring freshness to the most unremarkable, mundane moments. Times like when you're getting ready for the long day ahead. Or if you're having guests over soon, featuring floral arrangements in your bath is a lovely way to surprise them as well: It shows your attention to detail and will make them feel extra welcome. Here's a guide to perfecting your bathroom florals.

Bathrooms can be tiny compared to other rooms in your house, but having less open area to place substantial vases. You'll need to become selective with how you display your colorful blooms. If you're short on counter space, you can opt for tiny bud vases. Or, use single blossoms or sprigs of greenery. You can put one of these just beside the hand basin or line a few up on the windowsill to make a feature.

If you have extra room, try putting a larger vase onto a chic stool in a dark corner of the bathroom and make a floral statement.

Once you're determined to add blooms to your bathroom, you need to be mindful of which flowers you choose. Not every blossom handles the humidity that comes with this space well.

Here are some ideas to try: Flowers like orchids work well. Or consider Australian natives such as eucalyptus and banksias that are bathroom-happy botanicals with long shelf-life.

Need some quick tips on getting your bathroom bloom arrangement to be just perfect?

  • Make sure your arrangements are compact, so there’s less chance of the flowers getting knocked over.
  • Make sure to keep your blossoms away from direct sunlight or places that will radiate heat, such as the bath – particularly if you're using delicate flowers.
  • Make sure you use heated light at a minimum for longer-lasting flowers.
  • Change the water regularly.Ready to take your botanical bathroom experience to the next level?
  • Get some eucalyptus from the shops – or your backyard if you can.
  • Run some string or twine around a few stems.
  • Fix it up in a bunch in the shower.
  • Grind the leaves a little so while you shower a steamy eucalyptus experience greets you every day.

When prepping your home for viewing, little touches such as a fresh sprig of blooms in your bathroom leave a favorable impression with potential homebuyers.

As a Florida native growing up in Sarasota, I have seen my hometown grow from a sleepy coastal town to a highly sought-after destination along the shores of the Gulf of Mexico. After working in Chicago for 5 years, I returned to Sarasota and saw it through a new lens and really began to appreciate what makes Sarasota so desirable, including temperatures that allow for year round outdoor activities including tennis (a personal favorite), golf, boating, kayaking, fishing, paddle boarding, or just relaxing and/or shelling on our pristine sandy shores, including Dr. Beach’s #1 beach in the United States for 2017, Siesta Key! Sarasota’s cultural amenities are many and diverse, appealing to a wide range of arts lovers. Downtown Sarasota has become a destination in itself, drawing many new developments for those who want to be within walking distance of Main Street's offerings and the picturesque bayfront and marina. Foodies will find an eclectic mix of locally owned and operated restaurants offering something for everyone, and there are now Farmers Markets every day of the week in various locations throughout Sarasota, but the Saturday morning Farmers Market in downtown Sarasota draws the biggest crowds. Since 1988, my passion has been selling real estate, representing both buyers and sellers. I have been recognized by my clients and customers for an uncompromising work ethic and dedication to helping them achieve their real estate goals. Relying on my experience as a real estate paralegal and being highly organized, I am able to help make the transition between contract and closing a smooth one for my clients. With an eye for interior and landscape design, I've been known to pitch in and help Sellers minimize and/or reorganize their belongings in order to stage their home to maximize its sale potential. I specialize in out of state buyers looking for their piece of paradise along the Gulf Coast and make it a priority to keep them up to date on our quickly changing local real estate market. I welcome the opportunity to share with you all Sarasota and her surrounding islands have to offer!
