How to: A Removable Plate Rack in a Kitchen Cabinet

Kitchen storage space needs to be flexible as your needs evolve. If you have tried stacking bowls on plates or smaller plates on larger plates, you're probably doing so to take advantage of as much cabinet space as possible. But trying to get those plates out from under bowls can be difficult. For flexibility and ease of use, consider getting a removable plate rack for your kitchen cabinets.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Determine what you need the plate rack to do. For example, assess whether the rack will function to take advantage of all available cabinet space or whether you're trying to keep your plates from knocking into each other and possibly chipping.

  2. 2

    Use a metal vertical stacking rack to get the most use from vertical shelf space. Position the rack in the corner of a shelf. Place the largest items on the bottom and lighter or smaller items on the higher shelves.

  3. 3

    Use a horizontal wooden or metal plate rack on a shelf or in a drawer to keep plates organised but separated enough that they won't knock into each other.

  4. 4

    Use an easel-type plate rack if you want to display certain plates in your collection. Position it in a corner or centre of a glass-front or open cabinet to draw the eye and serve as a decoration in your kitchen.

Tips and warnings

  • Be certain of the number of plates you need to store before choosing your plate rack.
  • Don't exceed the indicated weight limit of the dish rack you choose.
