What a clever (and easy-to-nick idea) from UK-based deVol Kitchens; suspending a wood laundry drying rack over the range for hanging cleaning implements and drying tea towels.

Above: A classic Esse range anchors the space.

Above: The trim and cabinetry is painted in deVol’s custom Mushroom paint with Lagoon Silestone worktops.

Above: The drying rack suspended over the range provides an area for drying dishtowels and kitchen cloths.
