I love having a pot rack in my kitchen… I just can’t imagine sacrificing that much cupboard space to store all these pots and pans. And some of these pans are so large and would be difficult to get to inside a cabinet, but here I can just grab what I need. In our former house, we had a pot rack over the island. In this kitchen we didn’t have the space for it there, so we had to think a bit creatively, and the way this kitchen is laid out with the wall jutting out here already, it just seemed like the perfect spot to make a pot rack.This wall mounted, exposed brick, pot rack was a fairly easy DIY project, given that my son helped a lot and my carpenter did the grout. And I know, from my last post about a pot rack, that some of you are thinking about the dust. For me, it hasn’t been an issue at all. There isn’t noticeable dust on the pans, but just to be sure, when I grab whichever pot I’m going to cook with, I give it a quick rinse in the sink in case there is some dust on it, and it’s good to go.I hope with all my encouragement to you regarding the benefits of pot racks, if your pots and pans are taking up too much space in your cabinets, or you just want to create a bit more interest in your kitchen, you are thinking about how to best design and implement one for yourself. If you want any input from me, I’d love to help you out, so feel free to comment or email me with your thoughts, questions, or just to share your ideas!For this DIY project, I used a thin brick material purchased online. (free delivery too!!) thin brick and wall mounted potracks.
