Overhead Hanging Pot Rack

Hanging pots and pans is a smart way to save cabinet space while also keeping everyday items within reach. If you have high kitchen ceilings, try hanging a rack over the kitchen island.

We love the simplicity of this hanging pot rack from Ebern Designs. It has two chains for mounting and S-hooks for hanging all your pots and pans. You could even hang some greenery from it for a rustic, cottage-core charm.

Kitchen Island Hanging Pot Rack

While this one requires more shelving than hanging, an island with storage space is a clever space-saving solution. If you don’t have a kitchen island, don’t fret. Wayfair has tons of affordable options, like this one from Winston Porter. It has shelves, drawers and a rack for hanging and storing supplies. It even has wheels, so you can move it around the kitchen as you please.

Pro tip: If you have a kitchen island without racks and you want to hang pots and pans from your island, you can anchor some S-hooks under the counter and hang away.
