Pot Racks In Your Face

October 29th, 2012 · 6 Comments

The pot rack dominates the kitchen.  Does it really need to be there?  [Chandler, Arizona]

The pot rack blocks the view of the kitchen.  Are you pushing the pot rack or the kitchen?  [New River, Arizona]

Here’s a suggestion:  remove all the pots and pans from the pot rack as seen here.  That way, buyers can see the entire kitchen.  Also, please remove the cat from the photo.  Thanks, Lisa, for noticing the dog’s face in the lower right corner.  [Apache Junction, Arizona]

    Got a pot rack? Probably need the space it provides. If you hush about the cat, most people would just think it was another knick-knack like the rooster in picture #1!

    I recently watched the film Paranormal Activity 2, every time the pots fell off the pot rack I thought ‘it’s because that thing is tacky and a dust collector! Leif is trying to tell you to get rid of it’. The set was a very large kitchen, too. And maybe that is a stuffed cat?

    Shawnee, we’re trying to save lives here. Don’t get hit in the head by a flying pot when poltergeists wreak havoc.

    In photo one, is that the same material on the counter/island that is on the floor? Yeah….. that said, those cabinets in photo two look like they could be retro cool, maybe, if I could actually see them. Are the skillets an expensive brand like T-Fal? If I could afford pans that expensive I would probably show them off, even if it wasn’t the best design option.

    That said, Leif, there is now one less pot rack in a home today because of you. A friend in our community was in great need of housewares to rebuild after bad times, and I just looked at my pot rack and though that perhaps she needed some of those pots, and I didn’t need a rack if I didn’t have so many pots, and well, months of reading this blog probably sank in. Although now that means I actually have to clean the kitchen, (sigh).

    The chains on the first rack are spread eagle, looks so strange — like the pot rack is being tortured or something.
