Choose Country Style Pot Racks

The decorating details in a room are integral in creating the overall style. A country style pot rack is a stylish and functional addition to a country kitchen. Pot racks keep your pots and pans handy, making the cooking process much easier. The added bonus is the free space in the cupboards where your pans once were. Narrowing your options when it comes to pot racks involves several details for your consideration. Does this Spark an idea?


1. Sort through your pots and pans to determine what you will hang on the rack. Since the pots are on display with a pot rack, choose the ones that you aren't embarrassed to show. This is a good time to donate or throw out the old pans you never use.

2. Note the number and size of the pots you have left that you wish to display. Use these numbers to select the size of the country style pot rack.

3. Decide if you want a hanging pot rack that is mounted to the ceiling, a wall-mounted pot rack or a freestanding pot rack.

4. Identify a location for your country pot rack. The type of rack you prefer influences the location. You'll need a ceiling joist or wall studs to attach a mounted pot rack, so consider those locations within the room. Use the tape measure to measure the area so you know how large of a pot rack you can accommodate.

5. Browse the pot rack selections for one that matches the country decorating style. Keep in mind the other country elements in your home; choose a rack that works well with them.

6. Choose the material for the pot rack. Wrought iron, stainless steel, wood and copper are common materials. Consider other surfaces in the room to ensure the pot rack blends well with them. The material combined with the details of the rack create the country style, so consider these two elements.
