Tiered plant stand Sign In/Join 
posted
I was thinking about getting a floor plant stand in the style of the pic to fill in a space beside our kitchen range. We don't have a cabinet there and the area needs something to make it look "finished" I don't really want a plant beside the range. So, my question is what would you put in this stand? Thanks

I'm afraid I'd find myself putting "inappropriate" cooking accessories in the baskets. If I were you, I'd opt for a 12" square butcher block stand. It would be far more useful. On further thought, 12" might not be possible, but 15" stands exist.

This doesn't sound like an ideal space for produce storage due to the heat, nor a floor standing tiered pot rack due to spatters from cooking. A small standing or rolling butcher block does sound like a practical solution. Just how much space do you have in this area?

To add to Froo's observation. I was storing my kitchen folding step ladder between the stove & refrig. and when I noticed one day how greasy the handle of it was I quickly switched to storing it on the other side of the refrig, where there is just enough room for it!

I'm going to embarrass myself now. I measured all the cabinetry that I have to install and with my appliances, I don't have any room left over. Which is good, now I can move on to fretting over something else.

Smile Yes, there will always be something else to think about until the project is done. That is until you start the next one!
