Even for those who have a large walk-in pantry, the location of pots and pans storage is key. Some cooks prefer them close to the oven or stove, some hanging overhead, and others in one consolidated area. Let’s take a look at these options.
Glide-Outs for Pots and Pans Storage
When the kitchen permits, placing glide-outs near the oven makes it easier to lift pots and pans onto the stove. With enough glide-outs, you can give each pot/pan its own designated space. By doing this, putting back and retrieving is easier. No more unstacking and re-stacking to get the pots you want! Plan it so all the pots/pan you own fit on gliders.

Drawers for Pots and Pans Storage
This option tends to be the most popular. The slide-out drawer for lids is a nice idea; however, if that doesn’t work for you, use it for baking sheets. Generally, at least two pot drawers should be included in a kitchen design. One isn’t enough. Like the glide-out cupboard above, you can also place pot/pan drawers next to the stove for easy access. Be sure to check the depth of the drawer design, so it accommodates your deeper pots. Check out other pot/pan drawer storage designs here.
Pots and Pans Overhead Storage
This design is the least popular; however, it’s ideal for a decorative display if you have lovely copper pots. The downside is obvious; if you’re not tall, decorative or not, it’s an inconvenience. However, some can be built to be lowered. Your imagination only limits the design choices for pot racks. You can choose style, color, and size. Check out a variety of styles here.
