Today, Jakob Barry guest posts about how ceiling racks can help save space in a small kitchen:
When the house I grew up in was going to be sold, I was one of the lucky ones who got to clean it out. Among the things that were given to me were a bunch of good quality pots and pans, the kind made to last a lifetime. In a way they already had lasted a good forty years, so I’ll call it two lifetimes!
After packing and shipping my new belongings, the boxes arrived and sat around in my living room for a while till I could figure out what to do with them. It wasn’t that there were so many, but my kitchen in the small home I was living in couldn’t handle the overload.
I probably could have stuffed a few here and there but I generally like to have the abode in reasonable shape, which means as little clutter and extra tchotchkes lying around as possible.
I searched for all kinds of solutions until a friend suggested I was overlooking the obvious to ease my predicament: a kitchen ceiling rack.
