What Houzz contributors are saying:
Like the idea of colourful grout but not the commitment? Try using a patterned wallpaper that echoes the shapes of a tile pattern and use a more basic scheme for the actual tiles themselves. This is a smart approach for a home you plan to leave in the short term. The next occupants can simply change the paper if they don’t share your tastes.
4. Bring in a few plantsPlants convert carbon dioxide to oxygen and absorb organic air pollutants. Get sturdy, easy-to-care-for plants that can thrive in low light and need less watering. Displayed here is the snake plant (Sansevieria trifasciata) or mother-in-law’s tongue that absorbs many air pollutants.
Best plants for your bathroomThe best bathroom plants have low light requirements and are able to thrive in high-humidity conditions.One of the best plants for the bathroom is Sansevieria (snake plant). This plant is almost impossible to kill. It can tolerate any growing conditions – no light or low light or direct light. You almost never have to water them, specially if they are in a bathroom. What’s more, their structure adds modern lines to your bathroom scape. Other plants include golden pothos (Epipremnum aureum), spider plant (Chlorophytum comosum), peace lily (Spathiphyllum wallisii) and all types of bromeliads.
TemperatureNative to the tropics of Africa (Nigeria and Congo), the snake plant revels in warmth, around 18-30 degrees C, which works out perfectly for our Indian conditions.WateringAbout the only thing that will kill a mother-in-law tongue is over-watering. In spring and summer, water it moderately, thoroughly wetting the potting soil and allow the top layer of soil to dry out in between each watering. Water very little, only if necessary, during winter.
Plant waste can be treated at homeGarden waste, such as leaf clippings, dried petals, seeds, coconut shells and fronds, and the like are counted as organic waste and can be composted at home itself or dropped off at your apartment complex garden compost heap. These items are not garbage but essential soil-enhancing resources that are very useful for composting, mulching and briquetting purposes.
