7 Solutions for Dealing with Pots & Pans Clutter

Cookware Organzing Solutions

The kitchen is the heart of the home. From your kitchen come sights, scents and sounds that signal the appetite. Here you are nourished and provided for, no matter whether you are dining on a frozen entrée heated in the microwave or a five-course homemade meal.

One of the biggest clutter contributors in your kitchen is caused by your pots and pans. Your kitchen might come complete with plenty of cabinets, cupboards and drawers, and some may not. Whatever your unique situation, it's how you utilize the space you have and how you discover ways to add more storage solutions (as needed) that makes a difference.

Here are 7 unique solutions for taming the clutter created by the pots and pans in your kitchen.


Ceiling Mounted Pot Rack

Pot racks utilize overhead space to hang pots and pans from the ceiling, freeing up much-needed cabinet space.


Pull Out Storage

Pull out storage involves drawers that extend fully which allow for the use of back corners without having to reach deep into cabinets to retrieve a pot.


Bookshelf Wall Mount

Installing a wire grid on a bare wall keeps pots, pans, and cooking utensils handy. Items can be hung using hooks from the grids or placed on top of the shelf.



Swinging Shelves

Ideal for tight spaces and corner cabinets, these swing-out units bring items into full view, and shelves organize cooking gear to keep everything neatly stacked.



Divided Drawer

Really flex your organizing muscles by separating your pots and pans in a divided drawer. Dividers provide a spot for each pan and its lid.
