It’ll give you easy access to pots and pans along with other items, such as utensils you would ordinarily store in your cupboard or drawers. A hanging pot rack is the most advantageous of them all. While your cookware is hanging down within your arm’s reach and being clearly visible is one of the many attributes they bear. Finding the item you need and obtaining it becomes much less of a strain and hassle than sifting through piles in low cabinets or in drawers. You can sometimes select a hanging pot rack that is synonymous with the decor which makes it all the better. Pot racks come in many shapes, sizes, and materials to match your kitchen decor as well. A stainless steel pot rack is one of the lease likely to fade and is the easiest to maintain. Stainless steel is also expensive in the market right now. Stainless steel presents a certain character and feel that only you can claim.

Most hanging pot racks suspend from chains and are affixed to the ceiling by way of screws or hooks. Many are quite easy to assemble and install with basic hand tools, and can therefore be an inexpensive way to not only give you a convenient storage place for your pots and pans but in addition improve the look within your kitchen. A great amount of designs can be found featuring wrought iron, stainless steel, and wood just to name a few, so finding the appropriate style pots and pans rack is just a question of time to do careful research.

When installing a pot rack you have to take in consideration for measuring various heights. There are three measurements needed in order to install a hanging pot rack. First is the reaching height, or the height where it is comfortable for a person to reach their pots and pans. Most people want to hang a pot rack at a comfortable reaching height. This height is usually about one foot above the height of a person’s head and this is where the pots should be located. The second measurement needed is the height of the ceiling. The third measurement is the height of the pot rack with the hooks. The height of the ceiling minus the reaching height is the required height of the pot rack and chain

Pot racks finishes play a very important role in the selection process for the pot rack, because its the bottom line in your decision making. There are many different finishes offered from the many different manufacturers, so carefully do your research, so you’ll be able to determine how to blend it with the decor of your kitchen design. Some of the more common finishes are:

  • Stainless Steel
  • Copper
  • Chrome
  • Hammered Steel
  • Many Painted Color Finishes

Once installed, these racks typically hold a sufficient amount of weight dependent upon the type and manufacturer. You can increase the weight capacity if you use a heavier chain purchased from your local hardware store; but I’d  be very cautious  and maybe stick to the specified directions. In addition cookware can hang with various other things, like utensils and other kitchen gadgets. Some hanging racks also have a slated grid that covers the inner potion of the rack, upon which bowls and lids can be stored, freeing up all the more space elsewhere within your kitchen.

Other benefits associated with these pot racks include, lights that would illuminate your kitchen as well as show your pots and pans at its best. The ease of access they provide particularly if you suffer knee or lower back pain is a great benefit in itself. With a hanging pot rack, virtually there’s no stooping or crouching involved when reaching for pots or other items, less anxiety is put on areas that in most cases people ordinarily would suffer chronic discomfort, and once again you can easily retrieve the item you need with ease.

Pot racks will definitely benefit the cooking enthusiast and add charm and character to any kitchen. Pot racks has been around since the 1400 hundreds and will continue to thrive for a long time to come.

Pot racks help in increasing the functional space of a small kitchen. There is a wide choice in the size, shape, and finishing material of the pot racks, which enables one to select what is best suited for his or her kitchen.

The most widely purchased racks are the hanging pot racks. They are placed over the kitchen islands or peninsulas. At a convenient height, a hanging pot rack provides easy access to all the pots, pans, and long-handled utensils, and at the same time does not impede freedom of movement.

There are different types of the hanging pot racks: round, oval, rectangle or bar shaped, or racks designed according to the style preferences specified by the customer. Heavy, lighted pot racks that contribute greatly to the kitchen ambience can be hung from a fan brace fitted in the ceiling. While choosing the hanging pot racks, it is important to consider the following points: the dimensions of the rack, height of the ceiling, and the overall distance of the ceiling to the bottom of the vessels in the pot rack; the tallest person’s head must clear the longest-handled pan while working or bending over the counter; the shortest person must reach the smallest pan; and countertop lighting should not be hampered by the racks.

Adequate support should be given at the point where the rack is hanging from the ceiling. Normally, joists or studs are provided to support the rack; if deemed necessary, a carpenter is called in to fashion suitably decorated joists. The weight on the rack is balanced to prevent it from swinging when accessed.

Whether it is a simple hanging beam or an elaborate pot rack that hangs from the ceiling, hanging pot racks are a great way to make use of wasted space to house the cooking tools comfortably.

A hanging pot rack is used to make access to pots and other items easier and more comfortable. By hanging down within your arm’s reach and being clearly visible, finding the item you need and obtaining it becomes much less of a strain and hassle than sifting through piles in low cabinets or upon shelves.

Most hanging racks suspend from chains and are affixed to the ceiling by way of screws or hooks. Many are quite easy to assemble and install with basic hand tools, and can therefore be an inexpensive way to not only provide a convenient storage place for pots but also enhance the look of your kitchen. A countless number of designs are available featuring cast iron, aluminum, wood, or fiberglass, so finding the right style is only a matter of time.

Once installed, these racks typically hold a good deal of weight depending on the type, and in addition to pots and pans you can hang various other utensils. Some hanging racks also have a slated grid upon which bowls and lids can be stored, freeing up even more space elsewhere in your kitchen.

Other benefits of these racks include the ease of access they offer, especially if you suffer knee or lower back pain. Without any stooping or crouching involved when reaching for pots or other utensils, less stress is put on areas that in many people suffer chronic discomfort.
