Many professional or elegant kitchens feature a pot rack above the kitchen that holds pots and pans. Pot racks can really change the look and feel of the kitchen and can add a touch of uniqueness to the kitchen. In addition, pot racks also create more storage space and put pans in a place where they are out of the way, yet are still accessible when they are needed. In addition, the pans contribute to the overall decorating scheme. This article will describe the different types of pot racks. It will also outline how to effectively use a pot rack and will provide tips for decorating with pot racks.
Pot racks come in numerous shapes and sizes. Each pot raaack is generally hung from the cieling with one or two attachments. The attachements are connected to a chain or wire that connects to teh rack itself. There are generally three major shaped for pot racks, rectangular, oval, and round. Each rack has hooks that dangle down and can be used to hang a pot or pan on. some of the racks contain a grid that is also like a shelf and can be used to store the pot lids.
Most pot racks are made out of stainless steel to match pans, however some are made out of wood. There are a large number of finishes that are available for a pot rack to ensure that the pot rack matches the overall kitchen decor. Some of these finishes include chrome, hammered steel, copper, or brass. Each of these finishes offers a distinctive look and feel for a kitchen.
Since most people who order pot racks have very nice kitchens and that most pot racks are made out of treated metal, pot racks are generally not cheap. Some pot racks can cost around $100 and range up to $500 or even $1000 for a specially designed pot rack or an extremely large one. The key determinants of price for pot racks are the size, the material, the shape, and how the material is treated.
When you are decorating with pot racks, one of the main things to think about is where you are going to put your pot rack. This necessarily needs to take into account the item under the pot rack. Most rectangular pot racks are made to be placed above the inner island in the kitchen. Other pot racks will look good above a counter top or above and to the right of the sink. You also should not put a pot rack in an area where someone will bumpt their head on it. As a general rule, pot racks should be accessible, but should not be in the way - putting them over top of an area where no one stand (like a counter top or island) is a great way to do this.
Another type of pot rack is the wall mounted pot rack. This type of pot rack is mounted on the wall, instead of connected to the ceiling. This is not the most common type, but it does help if you have a different size or shaped kitchen. wall mounted pot racks allow some people to use pot racks when they otherwise may not be able to.
Pot racks are also great for kitchen organization. Pot racks keep pans in a place where you can reach them, yet they are out of the way. Instead of having to sort through pans in a cabinent, you can merely pull the pan you need off of the rack. Pot racks are also great for using the natural decorating scheme of a kitchen. When a person walks into a kitchen, he or she will generally expect to see pots. A pot rack helps decorate the kitchen and organize the pots so they are visually pleasing.
