Furnishing the bathroom with succulents is a simple and elegant way to bring energy into the home and transform its appearance. If you introduce plants in the bathroom, you will begin to notice improvements in health and general mood. It is important to first study the location of the plants in the house: the spaces should not be overcrowded because each species needs its habitat to grow, but at the same time they must not be made to look too sparse or random. Our advice is to create a micro-plant area composed of plants of different sizes and shapes. But make sure that the plants you choose are suitable for that particular space.
