1. Above the sink. 

As with most things in decorating, there is a minimalist and a maximalist approach to decking your halls with holly and houseplants. On the minimalist end of the spectrum is hanging a few small pails across a tension rod in your kitchen as a makeshift herb garden. The mounting hardware can be had on the cheap from your local hardware store, and all you need are a few grocery store seedlings and a sunny window to freshen your kitchen with the scent of aromatic herbs.
