Small Kitchens Rejoice When You Use These Compact Pot Racks
Keeping a small kitchen clutter free is not an impossible task.
It is simply a matter of making use of all the space that you have and seeking out ways to maximize it.
Nothing takes up more room than pots and pans. There are a few ingenious items that will aid you in keeping these items handy while opening up additional space in your small kitchen.
Ceiling Pot RacksA ceiling pot rack is a wonderful invention that allows storage of cookware within easy reach while taking up absolutely no wall or counter space at all.
It suspends from the ceiling and has a variety of hooks from which your cookware will hang.
In many cases, if you have room left over after putting all of your pots up on the rack, it not only allows you to easily store your pots for space conservation but a small amount of primary utensils can also be stored up and out of the way for a clutter-free kitchen experience.
Wall-Mounted Pot RacksThere is no better way to stretch your kitchen space then using small pot racks to place your cooking items on. Reorganizing the kitchen to expand on space can begin with the installation of wall mounted pot racks.
Like most racks, these are available in a number of sizes and there are many options that will suit your needs.
Additional space from these racks may be gained via upper shelving. This space can be utilized by not only placing your pots on the shelving above, but your pans can also be stacked neatly together on one shelving component.
If there's still desired shelving space remaining afterward, decorative items such as silk plants can be placed on top to add a little hominess and style to your small kitchen.
Pan Tree RacksWhoever it was that came up with pan tree racks had to have lived within the confines of a small kitchen.
A pan tree rack is simply a small pot rack that allows you to store a number of pans on top of each other via each shelf that aligns vertically one above the other.
Station these in the corner of your cabinets and make use of remaining cabinet space with other important kitchen items. You'll find that you have a lot more room left over because you're able to store "up" rather than "in."
Cookware StandsCookware stands are an ideal choice when cabinet space is nonexistent. They also work great when you need a considerable amount of room to store your pots and pans.
The at-a-glance view that cookware stands provide makes it easy to grab the cookware that you need in order to prepare dinner for the family.
Cookware stands also allow you to tap into storage space elsewhere in your home since the stands aren't required to be stored in the kitchen. Place one in your dining room, living room or closet.
If your cookware stand is left out in the open and you don't need every single shelf for your pots and pans, consider taking advantage of one or to shelves and sprucing up your rack by adding one or two silk plants on it.
This will go a long way in giving it visual appeal in a small home where unconventional items need to be used as a part of your decor.
