The reclaimed barn wood shelving added an open feel and keeps the space warm and light along with the herb garden window and watery subway glass tile for the back splash.

What Houzz contributors are saying:
To grow herbs indoors, be sure to have a strong source of light for at least four hours a day. Varieties that work well indoors are:Lemon balmMint. It’s perfect for a container indoors since it spreads easily.Basil. Use the smaller globe types for indoor planting.Cilantro. It’s short-lived, so plant a succession of two or three plants to keep up a supply for guacamole or cooking.Thyme. This can be divided from a larger plant and planted indoors.OreganoParsley. It doesn’t need much sun but grows slowly. Rosemary. You can take a cutting from a branch tip, strip the lower foliage, and stick it into potting soil (cover with plastic to retain humidity as it roots).Lemongrass. You can use one from the store and start rooting it in water. It has sharp leaves, so I’d recommend transplanting it outside once it’s larger.Chives. They don’t require as much light as other herbs, and the ‘Grolau’ variety was specially bred for growing indoors.How to Grow Herbs Indoors
