Finding a place for every cooking item in the kitchen while avoiding a cluttered cooking space can be a hard task. Storage doesn’t always have to be boring and hidden away, displaying equipment out in the open can add to your kitchen’s design. Plain-sight storage in the kitchen is handy as it keeps things close at hand when you’re in a rush to prepare. Here are some creative ideas and inspiration for displaying your most used cooking items in the kitchen.

Pots and Pans
There is no need to hide away pots and pans when you can display your collection in an artful way and offer easy access using simple wall hooks. Alternatively use a hanging pot rack for larger kitchens or a mounted board with hooks for a small space to store clean pots and pans. Hanging bright cookware against flat neutral surfaces adds deliberate display pieces to your kitchen.

Small Appliances
Small appliances are normally kept hidden away in the kitchen to reduce clutter; however setting out essential small appliances out on your bench top can add an industrial touch to a kitchen. Matching small appliances or contrasting coloured items can add interest to an all-white kitchen.

Herbs and Spices
Wall-mounted spice racks are an obvious choice for storing herbs and spices. Be creative and transform this into an artistic wall display for your kitchen. Create a convenient magnetic spice rack using steel or display them in a decorative wall cabinet to convert your herbs and spices into wall art.

Knife blocks and magnetic knife holders are great for maintaining easy access to most used items while keeping the preparation area clear. Kitchen display cabinets are perfect for showing off glassware while keeping them safe.

A clever wine rack can be converted into a stunning display piece. Bright wine racks add character to any kitchen and can be stowed along the end of your kitchen island for easy access or displayed underneath the stairwell to transform the empty space. A simple compact wine shelf mirroring the kitchen décor is a unique way to store your wine.

Cookbooks need to be kept visible for quick recipe ideas, however, should be kept out of the way to protect them from the cooking process. Display your collection on open kitchen shelving or in colourful wooden magazine holders where you can easily organise them by title for quick access to your recipes.
