Kitchens can be tricky places. If you’re lucky enough to have a large kitchen with room for everything, consider me jealous! I love kitchen gadgets and never seem to have enough storage space for all of my “stuff.”
My husband has a slight (okay, not so slight) obsession with hanging pot racks. He’s a country boy, I’m a city girl – he loves rustic kitchens and dreams of having one with wooden cabinets and counters and copper pots hanging from the ceiling, while I prefer my kitchen modern and clean-looking. Allow me to illustrate:
Versus my favorite (well, one of them):
So designing a kitchen together may pose a bit of a problem.
At least we’ve found one fixture that we agree on: hanging pot racks!
With so many types and styles available, a hanging pot rack can fit into any kitchen, traditional, country, or modern.
Best of all, they’re the perfect double-duty pieces! Besides for storing your pots and freeing up a cabinet or two, many pot racks are lighted:

Some are lighted and decorative; you can go contemporary (with bonus storage space on top!):
Kalco Lighting LIghted Pot Rack
Kalco Lighting Aspen 6-Light Pot Rack
Or even cute and kitschy:
Kalco Lighting Bon Appetit Lighted Pot Rack
The pot racks that I love are the modern ones (no surprise there), especially wall-mounted:
Whitehaus Wall-Mounted Pot Rack
Whitehaus Satin Stainless Steel Ceiling-Hung Pot Rack
There’s one for everyone!
Now that we’ve agreed on something, we’ve got to figure out the rest of the kitchen…
What do you do to maximize your kitchen space?
