One of the quickest ways to make a kitchen (or any space, really) happier? Add plants! It's true. Real scientific studies have found that plants can make us happier, more productive, and less stressed.
And you can still add some greenery if your kitchen is limited in the way of counter or shelf space. Just note these hanging planters in this Montreal kitchen. They totally work over a breakfast table or sink, or just off in the corner. Don't you just want to smile already?

Oh, and there's one more smart idea we should point out while we're all looking at this kitchen: the hack of using pant hangers to hold art! Framing prints (especially awkward-sized ones) can cost a fortune and take forever if you have a custom job. But you can get a pack of multiple pant hangers for less than $20. Then, all you have to do is clip in your art, hammer in one nail, and you're done!
