How To Organize Pans, Pots & Lids
Updated: Jun 22
The most annoying item to organize, if you do not have a proper storage system, it becomes a mess and very difficult to take out what you need efficiently, in this post we share great ideas to keep everything organized.
Use Them As A Decorative Piece
You can get creative and use a stair to hang your pots and pans and have them as both decoration and utensil.
Like in this photo, a black stair was used as a support piece and with the help of S-shaped hangers, all the pots and pans can be stored.
Not only they look nice as a decorative piece they are also incredibly practical as you do not have to go inside a cabinet looking for the pot you need, everything is displayed and easy to find with just one look.
What we also like about this method is the fact that you can customize the stair to fit your current kitchen style, an extremely easy DIY project that just needs waterproof spray paint.
Use Your Cabinet Doors
This is a forgotten space that could be used for something like this, not only it keeps your lids secure but also at hand you do not have to keep looking for the lid to fit a random pot. These types of organizers come in different ways. Here are two you can choose from.
Mount the lid storage rack on any wall, or pantry, cabinet, or cupboard door . Lightweight and easy to move to any area needed.
