It seems like everyone is always trying to organize their home but are concerned about sacrificing decor for space saving techniques. Style and functionality can go hand and hand and make a small cluttered space open and inviting.
The kitchen is one of the easiest spots to get cluttered. If cabinet space is very limited you must use it very wisely. Hanging pot racks are an excellent storage solution to open up cabinet space and remove clutter from the counters. We caution you, when choosing to use this storage solution you must have clean pots and pans and they all must have a similar look to compliment your decor rather than sacrifice it. There's nothing worse then walking into someones kitchen and seeing a bunch of burnt stained pots and pans hanging from the ceiling. Match you pot rack with your decor. If your kitchen is more modern then go with the brushed steel. For a country look a wooden, bronze, or pewter rack may be nice. For a traditional aesthetic, choose a more ornate rack with possibly a black powder coat on the metal.
