Choosing the Best Hanging Pot Racks to Fit Any Kitchen

1 Comment

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.
