Anna's question earlier today about hanging a pot rack over the stove piqued our interest. Where do people hang their pot racks, and are there some good ideas out there that we can apply in our kitchens? So we went hunting through our archives (and a few other places) to bring you good ideas and visual inspiration for hanging your own pot rack.
&bull 1 Rebecca's Wabi Sabi - We especially like pot racks with shelves; they seem so functional. (This is a before shot from Rebecca's place; see her re-do here.)
&bull 2 Songyun and Jae's Nooks, Crannies, and Niches - We like the wood color of this pot rack. It also seems like it's hung higher, and thus more out of the way, visually.
&bull 3 Lori's Latin Lair - Wow! This one has not just pots but just about everything else you need to cook, too.
&bull 4 Maxwell and Sara Kate's place - Here the pot rack hangs directly over the island, and together they frame in the kitchen.
&bull 5 Susy's Organized Kitchen - This pot rack is hung in the corner between the ceiling and the wall, which keeps it out of the way.
&bull 6 Keep it rail - The steel pot rack against the white tile in this kitchen from Living Etc. is really beautiful.
&bull 7 Mom's New Yellow Kitchen - Love how this rack has space for lids, too.
&bull 8 Matt's DIY Pot Rack - An inspiring set of directions for a DIY pot rack.
&bull 9 Wall-Mounted Pot Rack - A beautiful pot rack on the wall, instead of on the ceiling.
&bull 10 Bicycle Wheel Pot Rack - An unusual look, made with a bicycle wheel.
&bull 11 Sean and Holly's Hot Pink Kitchen - A classic, functional pot rack right over the stove.
&bull 12 Creative Ideas from College Students - This recent article from The New York Times featured perhaps the most unusual pot rack we've seen: a wire frame attached to the ceiling. We're not sure how sturdy this would be, but it gets high marks for originality!
&bull 13 Tara's Tiny Kitchen - Tara seems to have the best of both: a pot rack above the stove, but not directly over it. Hopefully this keeps her pots within reach but out of the way of the worst splatters.
&bull 14 Jennifer's Sturdy Copper Rack - It looks like Jennifer's rack is halfway down the wall, which looks rather more accessible.
&bull 15 Kitchen Rack - A wall-mounted rack at Martha Stewart makes use of vintage porcelain or enamel supports and a new bar.
These are just a few of the pot rack installations we've seen lately. Do you have a favorite model, look, or installation you've seen? Share a link!
