Best Placing Low Ceiling Pot Rack for Your Kitchen Ideas
If you’re a budding chef, an accomplished cook or just a homeowner with beautiful pots and pans to show off, a hanging pot rack can be a great accessory. Besides adding visual interest, low ceiling pot rack provide extra storage and frees space in the cabinets. After choosing the style that fits your decor, you can hang the pot rack yourself. Here’s how placed low ceiling pot rack in your kitchen.
Look for a place to hang your low ceiling pot rack that’s within reach (this distance will differ for each homeowner). You don’t want to hang the pot rack too high for you to reach. Consider your light sources and make sure you don’t block ceiling lights or natural light. Think about whether your kitchen needs a focal point, and if that focal point will block the view into another space, such as a great family room.
Locate your joists. You can do this one of two ways: use a stud finder or look for nails or nail heads. A stud finder is very simple, only requiring you to slide it across the ceiling and wait for the beep or flash indicating a solid frame. If you don’t have a stud finder, you can check for joists every 16″ to 24″, looking for nails or nail heads and then tapping the area to find the solid frame.
Drill the pilot holes. Once you’ve located the ceiling joists and decided where along the frame you want your low ceiling pot rack to hang, measure the distance between the chains, and mark your ceiling. Drill the pilot holes, making sure that the holes are no larger than your ceiling hooks.
Secure the chains. After screwing the hooks into the ceiling, you can begin to install the rack. Begin this process by deciding how low you want the rack to hang, and adjust the chains accordingly. Hang the chains on the ceiling hooks, doing so without the rack attached to minimize the weight you’re carrying over your head.
Attach your rack. Once the chains are hanging at the desired length, you can attach the rack to the chains. After this is done, you can begin to use your low ceiling pot rack.
