If you are drawn to the look of an exposed kitchen with open shelving, then you will be drawn to this residential kitchen that's similar to a restaurant kitchen. Notice the area on the backsplash — you can see and grab everything with ease!
If you want to fight countertop clutter, there's nothing like getting things up on wall. Don't limit yourself to pots and utensils, think paper towels, dish drying racks, and whatever else you can think of.
Combination rail systems and shelf systems can solve a variety of problems, especially when you're lacking wall cabinet storage.
Like a proper restaurant kitchen, everything is within arm's reach. Knives, pots, salad bowls, etc. There's something pristine about rows of kitchen supplies when they're at home on a wall rail system rather than sprawled on a countertop or stuffed in drawers and on shelves.
Pots and pans take up quite a bit of storage in any kitchen. Free up one of those cabinets for something else!
If you have plenty of wall cabinet storage, but you just want everyday things like spices, oil and vinegar within arm's reach, a simple rail system under the hood and above the range can free up a cabinet shelf for something else.
Classic or modern, there's something timeless about storing pots and utensils above the rangetop. Of course, there's always the concern about things getting a bit, well, greasy, but this works if you don't have a good alternative. Use the blank wall on the side to add some magnetic bars for knives and other things.
Not crazy about the idea of having items stored right over the range? Then try the sides. Open shelves and rail systems flanking the range and hood feel much more open than closed-door cabinets. Retrieving and putting things away will also be so much easier.
Have more room above the sink than above the range? Try installing a wall rail system in that location instead. Small kitchens with a shortage of drawers for utensils will really benefit from this sort of organization.
A minimal and sleek solution, here a built-in rail system is seamlessly designed into the backsplash. Stunning.
Don't limit yourself to only organizing kitchen utensils. Rail systems can be used to hold herbs and even be installed on the sides of cabinets for dish towels.
