My husband and I got married and purchased a house 3 years ago. It has quite a nice kitchen (which I looked for, as I like to bake) but I've never been a huge cook. However, this last year I have started cooking a LOT more, discovered the Le Creuset outlet 1/2 an hour away, and inherited a set of flawless All-Clad from my mom when she downsized.
When we bought the house, it already had ceiling mounts installed for a pot rack. While I need the space under my stove (I have a LOT of bakeware!) I wonder if pot racks are too visually cluttering and ugly. I also wonder about banging my head, the noise, and what happens if there's an Earthquake (we're in California.)
I've attached a picture to get your thoughts. We ended up removing the upper cabinet doors to display our dishes and glassware. It would hang above the island.
