Hmm, that's an idea. Maybe I can craft something.GreyingJay wrote: ↑That's slick!
I don't have that, but I did buy some Rev-A-Shelf sliding shelf organizers from Lowes to put into my bottom cabinets. The builder's offering was, shall we say, sparse. I have also looked into DIY gliding shelves from http://www.diyshelfworks.ca/.
Ultimately what I've done is a combination of the Rev-A-Shelf products and IKEA. Turns out my local IKEA is always overflowing with MAXIMERA drawers in the AS-IS department, for as low as $8. I bought a bunch of those and installed them myself.
If you're handy, it would not be difficult to turn IKEA parts, or parts from Home Depot, Lee Valley, etc. into a pot rail like you've pictured.

Problem I have with stack them on top of one another is that in order to get to the larger ones I have to remove everything on top of it. And same thing with putting them away. Really annoying.GreyingJay wrote: ↑My only concern with some of these pot racks is how much space they take up. I can cram at least twice as many pots into the same space if I stack them into each other rather than let them hang one by one. I don't have a ton of kitchen cabinet space. If I have to choose between utility and looks, I'm going to have to go with utility.

Can you list an example? Link? We're redoing our kitchen, and am looking at options.jrbb0309 wrote: ↑If you're looking to make existings cupboards function more usefully, I think that looks like an amazing idea.
If you're redoing an entire kitchen, I cannot say enough about pot drawers. I have all my pots and pans in top drawers because I use them so much and I love not having to bend and stretch for them anymore than necessary (I have some health issues that mean I need to make cooking as easy as possible and I wish I'd changed to drawers from cupboards years ago. Even for small appliances which I put in bottom drawers, it's still simply bending rather than stretching and reaching. Amazing how such a small change can make such a big difference and even though I lost a bit of space to accommodate a larger fridge, I ended up with much better organized space and more usable space.

I don't have a photo of mine open but they're similar to this in terms of what they hold: http://www.buildinganewhome.com.au/wp-c ... h-lids.jpg

We have similar pot drawers that you linked:jrbb0309 wrote: ↑I don't have a photo of mine open but they're similar to this in terms of what they hold: http://www.buildinganewhome.com.au/wp-c ... h-lids.jpg
We went from all cupboards on the lowers to mostly pot drawers except for one cupboard which stayed a cupboard but got divided with a shelf so we could store cutting boards and baking sheets there and our corner cabinet which got a huge stainless lazy susan (I originally hated the idea because I've never had good experiences with lazy susans but this one is amazing - it holds /everything/, nothing falls off, etc): http://cloud.myknobs.com/hrmlsk28prem-zoom.jpg - we also have a stainless steel pull-out spice rack which I love - and our pot drawers are able to take 125+ lbs

I can understand that. I decluttered like crazy when we did the renos and made sure that every single thing in my kitchen had to justify its being there so I'm down to the only the pots and pan and appliances I use on a weekly basis (I usually cook 6 out of 7 dinners from scratch). I have a few things stacked with these between them: http://www.kitchenstuffplus.com/harman- ... of-2-black - got them when they were sale.

We saw this before as well. We didn't like the look of having pots and pans out in the open hanging from the walls.jrbb0309 wrote: ↑There are some really good ideas on Houzz: http://www.houzz.com/ideabooks/18514454 ... s-and-pans
This looks like the Glideware stuff, just doesn't pull out.jrbb0309 wrote: ↑Or what about this sort of thing: http://i140.photobucket.com/albums/r26/ ... ete/21.jpg - if you have the room that would be amazing

Especially when they look like they've been through a campfire. Who polishes or cleans that meticulously their pans underside ?

I made something like this for my father's pot cabinet. Bought some slides from Lee Valley, but I rigidly attached the hooks, which isn't as nice as this. Not sure what they charge for something like that, but my version cost $20 + 1 hour of time + some scrap pine I had laying around. The one I made has a theoretical loading capacity of 150lbs I believe, but it would probably rip out of the cabinet if I tried to put that much weight on it.

They charge an insane amount for it - $199 USD for what I listed.ChubChub wrote: ↑I made something like this for my father's pot cabinet.

However, I didn't even realise that you could attach the lids like that; I feel like a complete idiot.
