Find space for nature in your kitchen

These days, we're finding ingenious ways of bringing some natural touches into our metropolitan lives, and the kitchen is a great place to start

Window herbs

You see, nature makes us feel good.

It may come as surprise to know that plants and greenery do more for our wellbeing than earning money does, but nature helps ease stress and relax. It is a great antidote to our hectic existences.

So how can we incorporate nature into our kitchens?

To get a gentle, harmonious feel, science (Biomimetics to be precise!) tells us that it’s all about having smooth shapes and curves, which are inherently pleasing on the eye. Wooden details can do wonders in creating an organic feel, while adding images or colours with a natural feeling work as well.

Of course, there’s more to our kitchens than just looks - how we use our kitchens and the food we cook in them is just as important in creating a natural feeling.

Cultivating vegetables and herbs is a fantastic way of bringing nature into our homes and all you need is a simple window box. Not only to these additions lift our kitchens, but they make us healthy too, which is ideal.

So let’s bring nature back. With just a few simple changes we can have greener, more relaxing kitchens and healthier, happier lives.
