Pot Rack Ideas

wall pot rack may be more practical than a hanging pot rack for those who do not want to have a pot rack as a visual centerpiece in the kitchen

Storing pots and pans with a hanging pot rack in an area where much of the prep work of cooking occurs proves to be very convenient. Here, the pots are easily accessible when preparing a meal and the rack is close to the sink to make cleanup quick.

This stainless-steel pot rack placed above the sink makes it simple to wash pots and hang them up to dry in the same spot. Making it easy to clean means it is more likely that pots and pans will not be left out. This kitchen organization tactic is perfect for those who find the chore of cleaning a difficult one
For those who use a plethora of pots and pans, a pot rack that outlines the room may be the perfect option. Hanging below the wraparound ledge enables the pots to be out of the way but still within reach. The kitchen retains its modern appeal while making practical use of the space by having the pot rack follow the contours of the room

With stainless-steel kitchen accessories, this silver pot rack fits right into the room. A smaller rack can afford just the right amount of area to hang pots and pans and clear up cabinet space for dinnerware and food items

This pot rack is ideal for a kitchen with a high ceiling. Copper tones mesh well with the wooden ceiling, and the glossy finish matches the smooth texture of the hood, refrigerator, and other appliances found throughout the kitchen

Pot racks come in a variety of sizes and mounting capabilities. Here, this Enclume pot rack can store up to 12 pots and pans. The sturdy rack hangs above the kitchen island, creating a fun atmosphere in the room

This unique pot rack acts in the place of curtains in this kitchen. The use of a valance above the window provides an excellent place to hang pots and pans while creating the look of a drapery

Kitchen Storage New Ideas

A pullout next to the cooktop keeps oils, vinegars, and other cooking staples out of sight yet close at hand. Storing away extra bottles and jars keeps the counters of this midcentury modern home clean and uncluttered, perfect for the style's minimal aesthetic.

The designer of this '50s-style modern kitchen opted for sleek, slab-face, lacquer-finish cabinets, accented with frosted-glass doors. A pullout between the ovens and the dish storage boasts wire shelves for pantry items. "Because it's a narrow space, you don't want a lot of visual clutter," the homeowner says.

A deep drawer under the cooktop is designed to accommodate large pots with their lids in place. The drawer glides open easily, even when fully loaded. Glass panels on the sides make it easy to see what's inside. The drawer front looks like solid wood, but is actually laminate -- photography of real wood glued on marine-grade plywood.

Tired of neatly stacking your forks in a silverware drawer? Cabinetmakers now offer more specialty storage inserts than ever to meet almost every organization need. Make use of narrow spaces with inserts, such as these utensil holders.

Want to add some pullouts? You won't necessarily need to buy custom cabinets. Though custom cabinetry offers the widest variety of options, custom pullouts are now available in semicustom work. Another option: aftermarket products to modify stock cabinetry

A slim vertical pullout capitalizes on a narrow corner area to provide convenient spice storage. Dowel "guardrails" on the shelves hold the small containers in place. The storage also gives the cook a clear view of the kitchen's spice supply.

Get clutter off the countertops. A convenient hiding place keeps your toaster at the ready and out of sight. If your plans include a convenient pop-out toaster shelf, make sure it doesn't intrude into a main passageway.

Ever send your pots and pans crashing about as you struggle to find the right lid for a saucepan? The struggle ends in this kitchen

Kitchen Pantry Ideas

pantry closet maximizes space with storage on the door as well as on a rolling cart inside. The shelves stop short of one wall, leaving space to hang a mop and broom.

This split-door pantry features a built-in wine rack, shelves for storage, and a counter work space. The French doors give a glimpse of the cupboard display and add a classic touch to the kitchen area

This floor-to-ceiling lazy Susan offers easy access and visibility of contents. The curved door protects contents and helps the storage space blend in with the kitchen cabinetry

Reach-in kitchen cupboards are a good alternative when there's not space for a walk-in pantry. This one is efficient in its combination of shallow shelves, door racks, pullout drawers, and counter storage. Double doors offer easy access, integrate the pantry into surrounding cabinetry, and protect and conceal contents

Pullout pantries offer deep shelves that utilize every inch of space without taking up much floor space. With room for small appliances, spice racks, canned goods, and cookware, this kitchen pantry frees up space, and items are stored where they are used

Split-door corner pantries are perfect for small kitchens with unused corner space. Here, the corner pantry helps keep walkways clear. Inside the pantry, custom shelving offers ample storage for food, supplies, and small appliances

Frosted-glass inserts in the doors obscure what's inside so the pantry doesn't have to be kept tidy. Plus, the doors add a light and bright element to the kitchen.

Colorful Bathroom

Sparkling cobalt blue tile was set on the diagonal to contrast with the horizontal lines of the base tile and chair rail. Above it, a two-tone blue stripe wallpaper adds an elegant touch. White trim, flooring, and fixtures keep this space looking crisp and clean.

Hot pink is a bold color choice, but it's a pretty look for kids, teens, or anyone with a romantic streak.

Trendy orange sets a citrusy tone in this bathroom perfect for a tween or teen. An updated claw-foot tub is surrounded by a shower curtain with faux flower petals hot-glued to it. The flower petals show up in force on the sconce shades and chair

Our first bath sets an exuberant tone with multicolored tile. Perfect for a kids' bath, the colors offer lots of options for wall and towel color as well

The tile in this room is the main color in the space. Less expensive square field tile in kiwi green was paired with pricier oval tiles in brown, used only around the bathtub

What could have been a boring white bathroom is punched up with a shot of springtime periwinkle on the walls. The shower curtain fabric was the blueprint for this color scheme -- containing the green, blue, yellow, and violet seen throughout the room.

One bright color may be all you need to spark up your space. These yellow-and-white stripes add instant style in an eye-opening hue. Touches of purple in the wall stencils and accessories offer a respite from the yellow

The bathroom may not be the first place you think to hang art, but look at how one piece of graphic art inspired the wooden wall paneling and mulberry paint color in this bathroom.

Wide stripes lend a crisp feel to this simple bathroom. Get the look by painting your bathroom wall white, then taping off evenly sized stripes. Paint the stripes the same color, or use two
coordinating colors like the ones shown here

This whole room is all about over-the-top glamour -- mirrored furniture, pedestal sink, dripping chandelier, fan-shaped tile, and the piece de resistance: button-tufted upholstered walls.
