Organizing the kitchen can be a real hassle.

Pots and pans are all wonky sizes and shapes and they just don’t stack so nicely as plates or bowls do.

As with other tools in the kitchen, pots and pans are some of the hardest to stash.

All too often, nice or even vintage cookware gets stuffed into a cabinet at any angle that fits. This gets the pots all scratched up, and it’s no way to take care of the investment you made in your kitchen utensils. We all know that they don’t come cheap!

A much better way to store pots and pans is to hang them up on a pot rack so they’re not clattering and clanging against each other.

And the best part about this is that you can pick a DIY or upcycled style that fits your personality.

These 10 creative pot and pan racks are all so different, I’m just not sure which I would pick! Kitchen decor can be such a fun design element to play with, don’t you think?
