I have cabinets that hang down in the middle of my kitchen, above the island, and would like to mount things on the back of them (it's a metal rod from Ikea from which I'm going to hang pots and pans, so a decent amount of weight - basically something like this, but about 5 feet long:
I'm wondering how exactly I should mount it to the back of the cabinets. I figure I can:
- screw right into the cabinet wall
- drill holes for anchors into the cabinet wall, and then screw into those (but the cabinet wall is not very thick, maybe 1/2 or 3/4 inch (standard, I assume)
- drill holes into the cabinet wall and then attach with nuts and bolts
- something else?
What's the best way to do this? I couldn't find anything by searching; I guess this isn't a very common thing since most peoples' cabinets' back walls are, well, against the walls in their kitchens.
