This pot rack is also a light fixture, though the lights are a bit more hidden away in the center. Storing your pots and pans in the open would be a tremendous incentive to keep them in pristine condition, wouldn't it?
Pot racks can even present a decorating opportunity. Gotta love that!
If you have a large island, you may want to consider having pot racks on either end.
Usually, pot racks are hung over an island but they can be hung over any surface you choose. You'll just want to make sure there's enough distance between the edge of the surface below to keep someone from bumping into the items you'll be hanging overhead.
Tip: Pot racks are normally hung 42" above the counter surface.
You could display your pans atop a shelf and create a hanging system below for your cooking utensils. A small copper rod makes a great hanging rod.
Even a corner works well for storing often-used cookware.
