If you love our post about bringing the outdoors inside, then you’re going to love how modern kitchens are infused with greenery. Vertical indoor gardens is a perfect suit for a small space. They allow you to grow fresh herbs right in the kitchen, whether you have an expansive space outdoors or not.
You can go for a full-scale greenery wall or you can keep it more on the subtle side. If you’d like to get a natural vibe, below are a few ways to use greenery in the kitchen.
“Outside” Greenery From A Wide Window
Using greenery doesn’t always mean that you have to bring greenery inside your kitchen. Like the photo above, The wide windows open to natural shrubbery, adding to the natural feel of the kitchen itself. (In fact, there are many ways to use window views to boost your interior spaces.)
This is another design that juxtaposes the natural feel with a sleek, minimalistic space defined by neutral tones. Again, the design makes sure that nothing truly competes with all the plant life.
You can keep your kitchen space from plants, try potted plants for some added greenery. The design in the photo above shows how hanging potted plants can enhance a kitchen space. They give an earthy, natural and slightly rustic feel like you’re an herbalist living in a woodland cottage. As such, this style works well for the country, rustic, natural and other bucolic looks.
Greenery Vertical Backsplash
You can give your minimalist modern kitchen an exotic look by creating a window backsplash that looks into a vertical garden. This style works especially well when you combine a wide array of different plant textures for tons of eye-catching contrast.
What really makes this design work is that the vertical garden is surrounded by such a minimalist kitchen space. The light colors and minimal textures help the vertical garden truly become the focal point of the space. If you’re going to go through the trouble of having a vertical garden visible in the kitchen, it should steal the show.
Vertical Garden In Your Wall
The vertical garden is a common, popular design for vertical kitchen gardens. You’ll see it all over DIY sites like Pinterest and Etsy. The mason jar design on the reclaimed, distressed wood gives an attractive natural feel. The design also allows for labeling each herb with a handwritten aesthetic that adds to the rustic look while being functional.
