Kitchens are often warm and ideal for plants that need humidity, from elegant peace lilies to the vibrant Begonia rex. There’s a lot more moisture in the air in kitchens than other rooms of the house, due to cooking as well as use of appliances such as washing machines and tumble driers. Not all kitchens are warm and humid, however, and there are other factors to consider when choosing the best plants for your space – some kitchens are cold at night, a south-facing kitchen with big glass doors will receive lots of direct sun, while an old cottage kitchen may have dim lighting and small windows. Your kitchen may have windowsills in sun and shelves in shade. The key is to determine heat and light levels in the different parts of your kitchen and buy plants to suit your specific environment.
