How to Install a Pot Rack
Featured Pro: Eric Stromer Category: Home Improvement Time: 2:56
ERIC STROMER: Hey, I’m Eric Stromer, and this is another GMC Trade Secret.
Are you running out of storage space for the pots and pans in your kitchen? Well, a pot rack is a simple solution that looks great, and installing one is easier than you think. Let me show you how.
First you want to decide where you want to hang the pot rack in your kitchen and then measure that area to determine what size pot rack you need.
Now, the key to installing your pot rack is to find the joists in the ceiling area where you want to install it. And you shouldn’t hang anything heavy like a pot rack from just drywall. Really this is true for any heavy object that you might want to hang from the ceiling.
Now, you’re going to use a stud finder, something like this, to find the joists in the ceiling. Now, I’ve determined that my joists are running this way in the bay window, and sometimes you can find the wood underneath the drywall by just knocking. It’ll sound hollow here. And then as it gets higher pitched and a little tighter sound, I bet that’s wood. I guarantee you, right there is the wood.
So let’s go ahead and use our stud finder. Ah, there it is. And the center point. And I’m going to measure out to that line for 36 and three-quarters. Good. That comes back down to there as well. Make your mark. I’m going to drill a couple of pilot holes through the drywall and into the stud above to get my eye hooks in. You can hear that you’re in wood right there; same as here.
Now, we’re going to use pretty substantial eye hooks, because that pot rack is heavy unto itself. And then once you hang all those pots and pans, that’s going to be quite a bit of weight, so we’re using substantial eye hooks.
Now, we’re just going to measure 16 inches on center over from our original pilot holes, because that’s what traditional framing is – 16 inches on center. So we can go ahead, put a mark right from here over to 16. We know we’re going to have a hole here, and then the same location back here.
Okay, time to install our pot rack. Now it’s time to hang your pots and enjoy your handiwork.
