Do you have room for a corner shelf or a corner bakers rack? I myself stack my pans they are just pans after all even tho they are good ones.I do have a pot rack as well for all my copper pots.My problem is all the darn lids to all my pots there just is no easy way to store them as I also am limited in space.I keep a large roasting pan,electric skillet,crock pot,spacesaver and a couple of other things that I dont use every day in the laundry room or rather laundry closet on high shelves.My dehydrator and racclette grill are in the shed as they may be used only once a year

You can also just store the pots you dont use all the time in a utility closet or even a bedroom closet if you hafto.
If I could see a picture of your kitchen I could maybe help more as Im pretty good at utilizing space.

I bought a lid holder that fits inside the cupboard door. Works like a charm!

Yes. I would definitely hang onto everything in good shape and find some place to store it. I have pots I haven't used in years.... but then one day will come that I want to boil a couple lobsters, or make an extra large pot of chili..... where would I be if I no longer had the pot that takes up the most room

I live in a condo with little kitchen space. I have several metal shelving units in the basement that I use for storing both hardware and ingredients.

Like Andy, I'm in a condo w very little kitchen space. I scaled down to the minimum (almost, haha) of what I really use, and put up a a pot rack -- it saves space and adds to the kitchen decor. You can either hang one from the ceiling - or - what I did, was get a wall mount. I went to a glass/mirror place, and had a mirror mounted behind it. I hang a few saucepans and a large skillet on hooks. It's the focal point of my kitchen, and allows me more room & hides the big stuff.

If you have a large wall, you can do a pegboard system like Julia Child did: Hang Your Pots: Kitchen Organization Tips from Julia Child | Meals : RealSimple.com

HTH.

Actually there is somebody on this site who does have something similar. But majority of people I’ m sure not. I doubt a lot of people, in general, have empty walls like that. Would be lovely.

I also live in a condo with little kitchen space, and NO additional storage anywhere else! If it doesn't fit in the kitchen, it doesn't fit....

"the flourescent lighting is there."

So is mine. It's that dropped lighting. The pot rack is rectangular, and the chains straddle each side of the lighting. Not ideal, but it works. If your ceiling is really high, you may have to add extra chain to get the length you need.
