Tired of digging through a jumbled mess of pots and pans every time you need to cook a meal? Running out of cabinet space to store your kitchen essentials? Let's explore some creative storage solutions for pots and pans that will not only declutter your kitchen but also make cooking a breeze! Let's go...
STORE LOOSE IN A DRAWER...
A great option if you have nice deep and wide drawers – pan drawers are, of course, perfect!
STORE USING DRAWER DIVIDERS
Yes, it’s nice to have large drawers, but they can get messy and unorganised quickly if you’re not careful. If yours look like this and are getting you down, then consider using dividers.
STORE LIDS IN VERTICAL RACKS IN DRAWER
Having vertical racks can work really well hidden away in a drawer so that you can see everything from above easily.
STORE IN WIRE RACKS
Wire racks can be simple extra shelf racks, or a set of wire shelves (either corner or straight) and can make a huge difference to storage in your kitchen cupboard.
LAZY SUSAN IN CORNER CABINET
A good space to use as it’s one of the bigger cupboards in a kitchen usually – and the space itself can be quite awkward to store anything small in as it can get lost.
PULL OUT STORAGE IN CABINET
Why not add pull out storage to an existing cabinet?
ADD HOOKS IN CUPBOARD
If you remove one of the lower shelves in a cupboard – or all shelves – then you could add some simple screw in hooks to the top of the cupboard and let the pans hang in the cupboard space.
USE A RACK INSIDE A CUPBOARD
A nice and easy way to store pans is with a simple wooden (or other material) rack:
STORE PAN LIDS ON THE BACK OF CUPBOARD DOORS
Adding simple hooks or fasteners onto the back of the cupboard door is such a simple but effective solution to the age old “where to keep pan lids” question!
A RAIL WITH HOOKS
Why not hang a rail with hooks onto the kitchen wall somewhere? Ideally you’d add it in a place that makes grabbing a pan easy when you need it (above the stove top is a great option).
A SHELF WITH HOOKS
Why not have an open shelf unit with added hooks out on display in the kitchen for your pan storage?
OPEN SHELVING WITHOUT HOOKS...
Another option is to install shelves and just add the larger pots and pans to the shelves. Simple! I like the idea of having shelves instead of cupboards above the cooker part of the kitchen – and adding pots and pans could be really good for display on these. Practical as well as pretty!
ADD A VERTICAL RACK ON YOUR WORK SURFACE / ISLAND
A great idea to have a set of pans displayed – and ready for use…
Why not add a hanging rack above the kitchen island, kitchen table, or elsewhere in your kitchen?
Having a high set of shelves so you can display one pan on each shelf is a great way to store pots and pans.
You get these a lot in Living rooms for blanket storage – but why not use a decorative ladder with hooks to store your pots and pans in the kitchen?
STORE IN THE OVEN
Some pots and pan would be fine if kept in the oven full time. After all – you only need to remove when the oven is used – which may or may not be frequently.
HOOKS IN THE WINDOW
You could easily use the space in your window to hang your pots and pans there and keep them handy but out of the way. This can be achieved by either adding a rail or a set of hooks.
