AMAZING POT RACKS

When it comes to designing a highly functional kitchen, the organization and easy access to our everyday kitchen tools and cookware are a top priority. Are you the type of cook who loves a kitchen that is clean and uncluttered, where your pots and pans and utensils are stored neatly behind closed doors … or do you love the convenience and aesthetic of hanging your collection of copper pots and pans within easy reach when cooking your next gourmet meal? If you think about it…having immediate access to your entire cookware inventory at your fingertips can be a time saver compared to rummaging through your cabinets looking for that perfect sauté pan which is invariably buried at the bottom of the stack. If you’re an avid home chef and love the idea of freeing up some cabinet space and bringing your cookware out of hiding, take a look at some of these highly functional and creative ways to show them off.

Here are five of our favorites:

It’s hard not to love this classic white farmhouse kitchen with rustic headboard and soapstone counters but what stands out here is the collection of vintage copper pots and pans suspended from the soffit. The varied shapes, sizes and patinas add an authentic colorful layer of history to this kitchen.

A very simple and elegant way to keep just a few of your favorite pots and pans within easy reach of your cook-top while maintaining an uncluttered look. A very simple wall mounted pot rack in the same stainless finish as the cookware blends in to the Carrera clad range niche beautifully. Proof that mixing metal finishes in a classic white kitchen keeps things interesting.

We love this ladder idea which would make for a fun and very easy DIY project! What a great way to personalize your kitchen space. Paint a ladder, secure it to the wall at the top, add some simple metal S hooks hanging off each rung and hang your favorite cookware. Vertical storage at its best!

Here is a perfect example how a very sleek, sophisticated yet dramatic cook’s kitchen can feel warm, inviting and lived in simply by exposing a collection of pots and pans. Installing a perfectly symmetrical number of wall mounted racks flanking the modern stainless hood and hanging the cookware facing outward makes us want to grab a pan and start cooking.

 Pots and pans are encased behind these elegant glass fronted metal cabinets and are neatly hanging against a distressed nickel silver backing. We just love the practicality of vertical storage for cookware which keeps each pot and pan scratch free extending the life of the cookware. Here everything is visible yet perfectly organized within this stunning modern Italian kitchen.
