Greenery is a great way to add some life to your kitchen and home. You can use real plants or faux plants, whichever you prefer. 

If you choose real plants, be sure to choose plants that thrive in low-light conditions since the space above your cabinets may not get much natural light.

Some great options include:

  • Snake plants
  • Pothos
  • Philodendrons

If you choose faux plants, ensure they look realistic and add some dimension to the space.


Baskets are a great way to add some texture to the space above your kitchen cabinets.

You can use decorative baskets to store items such as linens, utensils, or even fresh fruit. This is a great way to keep clutter out of sight while adding some interest to the space.

Artwork is a great way to add some color and personality to your kitchen. You can choose artwork that complements the colors and style of your kitchen.

Some great options include:

Style preferences
