Installing a Kitchen Pot Rack

When you purchase a kitchen pot rack, one of the factors you need to consider is the height of your ceiling. Most out of the box pot racks are designed to fit 8' or 9' ceilings. If you kitchen ceiling is low, you might want to consider a wall-mounted pot and pan rack. Some wall-mounted racks even come with a shelf or shelves to store extra items. On the other hand, if your celings are high, you may need extra chains. Just as some wall-mounted racks come with a shelf, some ceiling mounted racks come with lighting to brighten up your kitchen.

Ideally, your pot and pan rack should be hung closest to the place you will use pots and pans. However, in addition to where the most of efficient use of it will be, you will also need to consider the distance between the ceiling joists if it is a hanging rack or the distance between the wall studs if it is a wall-mounted rack. Most ceiling joists are spaced at either 12", 16", or 24" on center.

When using a hanging rack, the tallest cook's head should clear the longest hanging pot or pan while the shortest cook should be able to easily reach the pots and pans. You will also want to make sure the rack does not obstruct the lighting in the kitchen.
