Introducing outdoor elements to the interior of homes was firmly on trend in the seventies, with it now being a firm favourite in kitchen design trends today, this blog will talk about how to incorporate them in to your handmade kitchen and how these plants can benefit to the air around you.

Indoor plants will decorate your kitchen in an attractive way creating a beautiful relaxing space all with purifying the air making it alot healthier that’s perfect for you and your family. You can also easily grow herbs in your kitchen space that’s great in cooking healthy dishes, but also serve as natural beauty in your homes décor.

Top tip- Keeping plants where you can enjoy looking at them makes it easier for you to keep an eye on them when they need watering.

Our client below added an array of house plants to their windowsill. These particular plants have produced a zen space in our client’s property in the countryside in Potters Bar all surrounded with our beautiful classic shaker style. The delightful green leaves of these plants protrude through the natural sunlight adding freshness to the traditional kitchen décor. We are so in love with those breathtaking views!

The kitchen herb garden…

There is nothing better than growing your own herbs plus they look beautiful on a windowsill or in a rustic planter. What could be more convenient than having a herb garden in your kitchen, where you can snip off a fresh sprig of mint and sprinkle into that delicious dish. Herbs require plenty of sunlight so you will need to find a sunny spot in your kitchen where you can sit back and watch them grow.

Our client in Stansted Mountfitchet below opted for rustic planters to sit on their windowsill to make a home for the fresh herbs. The natural sunlight that shines through the window will help grow the herbs and make them fresh everyday.

Kitchen counter plants…

To add colour to the worktops is to use indoor plants. They will give you a fresh and colourful look to the work area, and instantly change the atmosphere to make the kitchen feel complete.

Our client in our Potters Bar project has filled their wonderful space with some green. With plenty of worktop space, plants and fresh flowers has been added to the kitchen design aesthetics to add colour, charming accents and a relaxing feel to the room.

Plant shelves…

If you haven’t got enough worktop space for a plant, shelves can be a good way of incorporating a plant into the kitchen design. This frees up the worktop for other kitchen items, and allows for the plant to be displayed perfectly in the kitchen space.

Our client in Bishop’s Stortford below had an open-shelf built above the range cooker to house pots and pans, and the plant that they have chosen to bring an instant attractive design to the kitchen space. It is the perfect place to display nature amongst other natural elements, such as the wooden aesthetics.

Some of the best house plants for the kitchen space

  • Spider Plant (Chlorophytum Comosum) – The Spider Plant is great for the kitchen as it acts as a great natural air purifier helping to remove odor, fumes, and pollutants from the environment.
  • Chinese Evergreens (Aglaonema) – The Chinese Evergreen plant is great for removing toxins from the air, plus it practically takes care of itself.
  • White Jasmine (Jasminum Polyanthum) – The White Jasmine plant enhances your kitchen environment with its sweet scents. With it being delicate and not too overpowering, this houseplant’s subtle fragrance will help keep your kitchen smelling fresh and clean.
  • Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis Mille) – The Aloe Vera plant comes in handy for a burn. The gel within the leaf almost instantly cools the burn down.
