The Benefits of a Hanging Pot Rack

Leave a comment

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. These racks feature many shapes, sizes, and materials to match your kitchen decor as well.

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.

Choosing the Best Hanging Pot Racks to Fit Any Kitchen

Upgrading the look of a kitchen can be as easy as adding a place to display pots and pans. Practical and always in style over an island, the best hanging pot racks are those that will fit the allotted space and complement their surroundings. The many styles available today will suit modern or traditional tastes and every decorating scheme in between.

Shape is an important feature that also reflects a specific look. Rectangular framework is a classic choice available in a wide range of sizes for small and large spaces. Oval pot racks can soften the look of a space while bringing an added level of elegance to the decor. Square and round racks will naturally fit the smallest spaces, but they can also suspend as singles over square butcher block islands or work as a duo to divide workspace over longer counters.

Finishes are a second option to consider when matching to kitchen surroundings. Coordinating with appliances, pulling color from the walls, counters or smaller accessories are all options. Smooth stainless steel and hammered steel with their silvery hues work well in a modern gourmet space. Copper, black, iron, bronze and designer colors are all beautiful finish choices for traditional, transitional and contemporary decor.

Specific features translate into accessibility that any home chef will appreciate. Grid styles are convenient for stashing ingredients and specialty utensils while racks with lighting produce both focused and ambient illumination. In any style, racks are the ultimate space savers that add beauty and functionality to any space.
