Hang Pots & Pans From The Ceiling

Pots and pans can clutter a kitchen workspace if not organized.

Kitchen space is often limited. Pots and pans can take up valuable cabinet and counter space. One solution is to hang pots and pans from the ceiling. A pot rack is an attractive option for hanging pots and pans from a ceiling. Pot racks provide more storage space in the kitchen, display your beautiful pots and pans, and provide easy access while cooking. Installation requires only a few tools that most people have around the house. Does this Spark an idea?


Hang Pots and Pans from the Ceiling

1. Determine the general location that you would like to place the pot rack. Run a stud finder along the ceiling in that area to locate two studs. Mark the studs with a pencil.

2. Measure from a wall to the studs. Mark an even measurement on both studs. Erase the original pencil marks.

3. Drill a 1/8-inch pilot hole at each of the pencil marks using a 1/8-inch pilot hole bit and a drill.

4. Screw a threaded pot rack hook into each hole and securely into the stud. The threaded pot rack hooks should have been included with your mounting hardware.

5. Place the top link of each pot rack chain that was included with your pot rack over each ceiling hook. Place the pot rack hooks into a chain line in each chain an equal distance down from the ceiling. Adjust the height as necessary. Remove any extra links from the bottom of the chain by spreading the link open with a pair of pliers.

6. Hang the pots and pans off of the hooks on the pot rack.
