living small: hanging pot rack…Posted: July 15, 2012
kitchens can be a hard place to live small… food processors, coffee makers, standing mixers, frothers, ice cream makers, cast iron, waffle makers, cookbooks, spices, cake pans, juicers, toasters the list goes on & on! it’s hard to decide what should live on the counter top, & if you’re like us, there isn’t much cabinet space… so finding somewhere for your cookware to go can be somewhat daunting.
there are lots of fun solutions out there but i’m a die-hard fan of the ever classic pot rack… hanging, mounted, whatever, they’re gorgeous & i love having exposed cookware in the kitchen. it looks great & they’re right where you need them when you need them.
i’ve been shopping around for new cookware forever & we finally got some! i wanted stainless steel & we are loving the calphalon set we decided on. you can see/purchase them here. if you didn’t already know, you can’t stack your stainless steel cookware… you don’t want them scratched or bent! yikes! hanging them is ideal if you can find a way to make it work. we have this pot rack from crate & barrel. i love how small it is, yet we still have 8 pieces hanging from it PLUS lids! my dad came over to help me hang it yesterday & it’s already my favorite part of our kitchen.
take a peep at some of my other favorite online photos! lots of living small inspiration. enjoy!
happy living small while cooking friends… be curious! *photos via: pinterest, martha stewart, design sponge & apartment therapy.*
