These are just some of the benefits of decorating your kitchen with plants:
For low-maintenance kitchen plants decor, choose from some of these houseplant options:
Consider how much light your kitchen gets when selecting your plants.
If your kitchen has windows, place plants that like bright light in a south-facing window, while north-facing windows will be best for plants that prefer indirect light.
If your kitchen is windowless, you can easily install under-cabinet grow lights to provide the light that your plants will need to look their best.
Also, all plants will need regular watering - some more frequently than others. Keeping your plants in groupings of similar water needs, or growing them close to your sink, will make it easier for you to stick to a regular watering regime.
You can use many different types of succulents as kitchen decor.
For example, Aloe Vera - this is an easy-to-care-for succulent that doesn’t need intense, direct sunlight to be happy. Make sure to let it dry out well between waterings. Aloe is also very beneficial if you burn your finger while cooking - just snap off a leaf and apply the natural inner gel to your burn.

A great way to display succulents in your kitchen is to use them as a centerpiece on your dining table. Succulents stay small, need very little water, and come in an amazing variety of shapes and colors, making for an eye-catching display.
Herbs are an obvious plant to grow in the kitchen, since they have many culinary uses.
For a sunny kitchen, you can grow pots of basil and rosemary.
If your kitchen has lower light conditions, then stick to less light-hungry herbs like parsley, mint and chives for your kitchen plants decor.
There are so many cute pots or upcycled containers that you can use to grow sprouts or greens that also add a lovely decorative touch to your kitchen.
For example, this little fox pot makes the perfect planter for microgreens or small herb sprouts on your kitchen counter.
You can purchase this fox microgreen sprouting kit in our Etsy shop here.
The top of your kitchen cabinets is often wasted space, so it’s a good place to add some greenery and freshness in the form of hanging or spreading plants like English Ivy or Pothos.
You can find many types of very realistic artificial plants to decorate your kitchen: faux succulents, dried grasses, or silk greenery can all make great additions to your kitchen design.
