I was hating putting pots and pans away. Not enough space and too much stacking of heavy things. And it was probably costing me money (and calories) for takeout/delivery because it added to the weight of "I don't want to cook and clean up and put all of that away again." Which, I know, is super, super lazy. Super. And expensive. And silly. And fattening. And... you get the point.
So I found stainless steel hooks. And I had an edge of cabinetry over a window that was available. If you have wall space for a (very sturdy) towel bar, that would work well.
Apply hooks. Hang pots. Stand looking dumbfounded that it took so long to solve this problem. Feel warm sense of relief for weeks when cooking and hanging (wet!) pots.
The large hooks are from a restaurant supply store. I think they're intended for hanging meat or something.
The small ones are from Ikea-- they're shower curtain rings, but I love them in the kitchen for hanging dish towels and grocery bags and for random temporary decorations. Which reminds me, I need to take a few to my bathroom to occasionally hang towels on the shower curtain rod. I don't have enough towel hooks in there. Off to conquer something else. I hope.
