A kitchen utensil rack is the perfect way to keep all your kitchen tools and utensils in one place neatly organized particularly when you have too many kitchen tools, appliances and gadgets while having little to no room in storing them all properly. This also allows you to enhance the look of your kitchen. You can find these racks in various sizes. If you’re looking for smaller ones, there are the racks that will fit well under your wall cupboards, and for larger sizes you could place them over your countertop.
It is quite easy to install the utensil rack if you’re trying to fit it under your cabinet. All you need is to drill a small hole that will go through the cabinet above it and you’re done. For installing larger racks, you need more tools, confidence and DIY knowledge and skills. If you’re not sure what you’re doing, you might be better off to allow the utensil rack installation by someone who is a professional at what he’s doing. You might have to pay a bit, however it is well worth your costs to be sure that you get a good job and your rack will not fall on top of your head any time soon.
You can find different types of utensil rack for your kitchen needs, from hanging utensil rack to wall mounted to magnetic, to overhead. There are actually so many types out there that some people find it difficult to get the one they need as they are overwhelmed. So here are a few types described below that make it easier for you to buy the utensil rack that you truly need.
Wall mounted pot rack
This is a very simple idea. You have a rack installed on your free wall and you can hang from it various kitchen utensils. The great idea about it is that you effectively free up space in your kitchen simply because the wall is many times not used at all, while we always try to cram everything on or below the counter. There are some absolutely beautiful designs that you can get that will also give you the benefit of really enhancing the decor of your cooking area.
Maybe one of the most beautiful and useful pot racks I found (and have in my own kitchen as well) is the Concept Housewares wall mounted pot rack. This is a beauty made of stainless steel and it is truly the ultimate storage solution for your fine kitchen cookware. It has a solid brushed stainless steel frame, durable metal grid and a really good quality set of cast aluminum hooks. If you are entertaining guests in your kitchen, you simply have to have this rack. One of the additional great aspects of it is that you can have lots of items in it as it comes with various large and small hooks so you have almost an unlimited choice as to what kitchen utensils to hang on it.
Kitchen plate rack
The kitchen plate rack is another type of kitchen utensil rack, that is designed to store your plates. I have seen them in several materials, however various woods are most commonly found. There are also made of chrome in various colors.
The one that I personally like and highly recommend is the Plate rack made by Wood form. It is an elegant piece that stores dishes for everyday or for occasional use. It is made of solid wood with a very stable and durable construction and it has a natural wood finish that gives it that makes it not only functional but also very classy to look at.
It is also beneficial that the rack doesn’t take much space in your kitchen.
Oval pot rack
An oval pot rack is somewhat a curiosity among many homeowners. However, it is a very useful tool to have around in your kitchen. The way I’ve seen most oval pot racks installed in the kitchen is by hanging from the ceiling. You can hang several of your pots and pans on it. It is usually made of wrought iron or stainless steel and it’s highly durable. Also a heavy chrome center grid has additional hooks that you can easily use.
When you buy one of these oval racks you will have a complete installation hardware and instructions so you won’t have to buy anything additional to it. While some people might shy away from having an oval pot rack in their kitchen, believe me it makes your kitchen really beautiful and functional. It enhances the ambient of your kitchen as it has a great shape and quality it makes your kitchen really stand out. Some people actually buy extra hooks just to have plenty to be able to hang many of their pots and pans.
