What Houzz contributors are saying:
The Fresher, the BetterConventional modern kitchens tend to be full of food wrapped in trash-clogging packaging, as well as excess food destined for the garbage. Kitchens designed for wellness would instead emphasize simple, fresh-grown and fresh-stored ingredients, whether they come from adjacent veggie gardens or indoor herb planters, that minimize waste.This might mean a kitchen with easy access to an outdoor garden or climate-controlled storage cabinets, potentially with watering features, so food retains its nutrients and stays fresh. (The Vera Iconica team also strategically places windows and doors to connect kitchens with nature and natural light and boost homeowner moods.) Something like a built-in composter could put food waste to good use, while indoor plantings could add a dose of healthy oxygen to the kitchen air.Shop for indoor herb gardens on Houzz
8. Vertical Herb GardenA vertical herb garden gives you room to grow multiple herb types without taking up any counter space. For a gift, purchase a vertical growing kit and then pick up 4-inch herb pots at the nursery to tuck into the growing pockets. Culinary herbs all require full sun to thrive, so be sure to instruct the gift recipient to choose a spot with bright sunlight.
