The 8 best indoor plants for bedrooms

From the most aesthetically pleasing options to calming plants and plants that purify the air, here are some of our top recommendations for your bedroom.

Snake plant

1.Snake plant

One of the wonderful things about plants is they naturally emit oxygen, which can help purify your air and lead to a better, healthier night's sleep. Get yourself a snake plant or two for the best air purification. These plants look stylish on a bedside table and remove harmful chemicals from the air, helping with respiration and ensuring you sleep soundly right through till morning.

Top care tip: These plants prefer sunlight but can survive in shadier spots, making them a versatile bedroom choice. They don't need excessive watering. Water a snake plant every few weeks, allowing the soil to dry out between watering.

Lavender plant

2. Lavender

If you're looking for relaxation, look no further than lavender. Lavender has long been recognised as an aid for rest, with natural oils and pillow sprays commonly using this soothing fragrance to promote sleep. But why not go one step further and opt for a lavender plant in your bedroom? You'll get multiple benefits in one - a pretty plant and a long-lasting, calming fragrance that promotes relaxation from the second you set foot in your bedroom. Place it next to your bed to feel the maximum benefit as you drift off to sleep.

Top care tip: Lavender plants like warmer, brighter spots, so make sure your plant is close to a window where it can get plenty of sunshine; ideally, it needs at least eight hours of sun a day to thrive.

Aloe vera

3. Aloe vera

Another easy-to-care-for plant that works wonders for air quality - meaning it's a great choice in your bedroom - is aloe vera. Aloe vera plants are succulents, so they are easy to care for; a bonus if you're new to plants or struggle to keep them looking their best. Traditionally used for medicine, aloe vera plants produce plenty of oxygen, so they will help improve air purity and quality in whichever room they're in. Plus, the fan-like, fleshy leaves make for a unique, interesting-looking plant that will make an instant impression in your space.

Top care tip: Aloe vera plants don't need lots of water as succulents; they maintain water within their leaves. During the spring and summer months, you can water them every 2-3 weeks, and they'll require even less water through winter.

Spider plant

4. Spider plant

Spider plants have become popular in recent years for a few reasons. One, they're super easy to care for as they only need occasional watering and can survive in indirect sunlight. Two, they simply look stunning! Spider plants have long leaves that snake out and fan over the edge of the pot, which means they look especially great in hanging pots. Use hooks or pins to hang them from walls or curtain poles for an effortless boho bedroom look.

Top care tip: These plants are another great low-maintenance option, making them perfect for the non-green-fingered among us! They don't love direct sunlight, so opt for a location with medium light and only water them when the top two inches of soil feel dry.

Jasmine plant

5. Jasmine

Jasmine plants are a scented option that can help promote wellness. The jasmine plant produces a lovely sweet scent that can help reduce stress and anxiety, ideal for helping you drift off to sleep soundly. It's also an incredibly pretty plant, with delicate green leaves and attractive white flowers. It will match various décor styles, bringing your bedroom a stylish, chic and sophisticated vibe.

Top care tip: Jasmine plants like the sun, so closer to a window is better. Keep an eye on your jasmine plant to see when it's flowering, as it will need more water than usual.

Chinese evergreen

6. Chinese evergreen

If you're looking for a leafy green plant with added interest, the Chinese evergreen plant is your answer. This plant has abundant pretty, patterned leaves, making it a great way to add a pop of colour and style to your bedroom. It's low maintenance - it can survive in low sunlight, making it ideal if your bedroom doesn't receive much natural light. Chinese evergreen also helps increase oxygen levels in your space, keeping the air fresh and helping promote a healthier night's sleep.

Top care tip: Chinese evergreen plants don't need too much water to survive, so avoid overwatering. Water the plant only when the soil feels dry to the touch, then allow it to fully dry out again before rewatering.

Peace lily

7. Peace lily

For a visually appealing flowering plant for the bedroom, a peace lily is a perfect choice. These plants help filter out harmful toxins while also giving off moisture that helps keep humidity in your room at a good level - great for a healthy sleeping atmosphere. They can grow to a relatively large size and feature pretty white flowers, making them attractive plants to place in a floor-standing pot or basket to make a statement in your space.

Top care tip: Peace lilies can be placed in most locations throughout the bedroom as, although they prefer indirect light, they can also survive in varying light levels. You should water moderately, keeping the soil feeling moist but not soggy.

English ivy

8. English ivy

Finally, for a trailing plant that survives in a range of atmospheres, opt for the classic English ivy. This plant is low maintenance, releases oxygen and absorbs air pollutants - all great news for a bedroom plant! It's also a super stylish plant with tons of visual appeal. As ivy trails, it's ideal for positioning over the edge of bookcases, wardrobes or chests of drawers or hanging from hooks or curtains. Plus, it doesn't take up too much room, making it the dream plant for any smaller bedroom!

Top care tip: English ivy needs moderate light in summer and a little more light in winter, so placing it close to a window in indirect sunlight is ideal. This plant thrives in humid conditions but doesn't like overwatering, so mist the leaves regularly without getting the soil too wet.
