Decorating your kitchen by hanging some of your pots and pans on the walls is a great way to add a decorator touch. It's also a good way to save on cabinet storage space. By hanging some of your most-used pots on the walls or from a ceiling rack, you'll have them handy when you need them, without having to dig through the cabinets. This practice also adds a lot of style to your kitchen, and can add a professional look and feel. If you're looking for creative ways to hang pots in the kitchen, here are some decorating ideas to get you started.
Utilize a Suspended Pot Rack
Suspending a pot rack from the ceiling is a great way to add both functionality and design to the kitchen. Especially if you hang the rack in a location that is near the stove, you'll be able to quickly grab just the pot you need while cooking. Pot racks are common in professional kitchens, so you'll also be adding a look of professionalism to your home kitchen. You might be amazed how much more cabinet space you'll have for dishes, spices and other items you need if you hang the pots on a rack. Suspended racks can also be a handy feature for over a kitchen island. Especially if your island is designed as a food preparation and work space, you can save time and effort by hanging your pots nearby. Also, by hanging the rack over the island, you won't have to worry about bumping your head into the suspended pots, because nobody can actually walk under them.
Hanging Pots on the Walls
If you've been wondering what to hang on kitchen walls to add a decorative touch, you might want to consider using your pots and pans. There are racks designed for the walls that will let you hang them conveniently and yet out of the way. Again, this method will really help free up valuable cabinet space. There are many different styles of racks from which to choose, some of which can be quite decorative. When selecting a rack, be sure it will comfortably accommodate the sizes of pots and pans you own. Wall shelves are another great option for storing pots and pans in the kitchen. Hang one large shelf which extends the length of one wall, and use it to store some of your more decorative pots, pans and serving pieces. Baker's racks can also be quite decorative and can provide plenty of storage space for several of your often-used pots and pans.
Decorative Touches with Pots and Pans
Of course, this method works especially well if you have some decorative pots and pans in your cabinets. When choosing which pots to display, you'll want to take two factors into consideration. Be sure to hang any pots that you use on a frequent basis, since you'll save time and effort by doing so. But you can also add a more decorative touch by hanging some of your more decorative pieces, even if you don't use them as often. By combining them in this way, you'll add visual appeal as well as functionality.
