Through trial and error, these are the indoor plants that have taken well to living in my bathroom.
A few years ago I wrote about the “shower plants” that are well-suited for life in a lavatory. The collection of plants I suggested were some of the usual suspects, and they are all great choices. But I tend to move my plants around the house, and over time my group of bathroom plants has evolved. The current family has nine different types of plants in 11 pots – the jungle is growing!
Here is the roster, roughly left to right in the photo above:
- Snake plant (Sansevieria trifasciata Futura Superba)
- Snake plant (Sansevieria trifasciata Futura Robusta)

- Green hoya (Hoya carnosa)

Trend #3. Enclosed Theater Rooms vs. Open TV Spaces
When it comes to designing a basement media room, homeowners have two options; an enclosed theater room or an open TV space. A theater room is generally for the real enthusiast. They want all the adornments that would enhance the experience: enclosed walls, plush reclining seats, a projection screen, surround sound, LED floor lighting and maybe even a popcorn machine.
