Everyone knows adding plants to your home has many positive effects from helping to purify your air to giving a nice decorative touch. But one room that is often overlooked in terms of foliage is the kitchen. We generally see the kitchen as a workspace and we don’t normally decorate it in the same sense as a living room or bedroom.
Well I’m here to tell you the kitchen is a great place to put indoor plants! Having an assortment of small succulents in your window sill or a potted plant placed on the counter, your dining table, or an end table in the kitchen or dining room will give your kitchen new life. You can even add a floor plant like my personal favorite, the fiddle leaf fig, to an unused corner in your kitchen.
Plants in your kitchen are especially good if you have a bright and sunny kitchen. Maybe you have a big window over the sink or a sliding glass door connecting it to your backyard that gives you lots of natural light. These are the perfect places to add a hanging ivy or an aloe vera plant. And if you’re a black thumb like me don’t worry, because I have a whole list of easy to care for plants with care guides below.
