How to Make a Lid Organizer
Store your pot lids apart from your pots to keep your kitchen organised. (PhotoObjects.net/PhotoObjects.net/Getty Images)

While pots and pans stack easily inside each other, the lids that accompany them do not. If allowed to become messy, lids can turn an otherwise tidy kitchen into a cluttered mess. While there are commercial lid organisers that sit on the counter and store pot lids upright, you can make your own pot lid organiser and secure it to your wall, saving valuable counter space.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Place a towel rack against the wall, adjusting it until it is parallel to the ground. Use a towel rack that is shaped like a bracket, with one long bar where the towels hang and two short arms that allow you to attach it to the wall.

  2. 2

    Lay a spirit level across the long bar of the towel rack to ensure the rack is placed evenly.

  3. 3

    Use a pencil to mark on the wall where the towel rack should be.

  4. 4

    Hold the towel rack flat against the wall using the marks you made as a guide.

  5. 5

    Attach the towel rack to the wall using the screws that came with the towel rack and a screwdriver or a drill.

  6. 6

    Slide the pot lids between the towel rack and the door. The knobs or handles on the pot lids will keep them from sliding through, and the rail of the towel rack prevents them from falling away from the wall.

Tips and warnings

  • Install towel racks on the inside of your cabinet doors to keep the pot lids out of sight. If you decide to place your lid organiser there, use shorter screws to ensure they do not push all the way through your cabinet doors.
