Flexible Magnets Arts and Crafts: Magnetic Knife Holder Installation

Flexible magnets are manufactured in strips and sheets, and enjoy many uses. They have many applications around the home and are also used in arts and crafts.  One popular and easy DIY project that you can do with magnetic strips is to make magnetic knife holders. They come in handy around the home and nicely made magnetic knife holders can also work wonders as a business idea. Here are some of the cool places that you can place your magnetic knife holders.

Above the sink

Perhaps the best place to locate your magnetic knife holder, the area above the kitchen sink is convenient as it is where you wash the dishes. Another advantage is that it puts the knives and forks safely out of the reach of children.

Below fitted cabinets

If you don’t want the magnetic knife holder to be a prominent fixture in the kitchen, you can tuck it below your fitted cabinets. The location also helps you save space and keep the dangerous items out of the reach of children.

Behind the stove

Installing your magnetic knife holder in the area behind the stove gives you easy access when cooking and also allows you to take advantage of unused real estate. The location is also tucked safely away from the reach of children but makes the knife holder a prominent fixture.

Inside cabinet doors

Flexible magnets also allow you to fashion a simple magnetic knife holder, even if you are not great with the crafts. If your knife holder is not aesthetically pleasing but simply designed to serve a functional purpose, you can locate it on the inside of any of your cabinet doors.

As part of a wall grouping

If your magnetic knife holder looks great and you don’t mind making it a prominent fixture, install it on a wall as part of a larger grouping that comprises other wall-mounted items and appliances.

All You Need to Know About Flexible Magnets

 

Magnetic strips and magnetic rolls have countless industrial and commercial applications. They are part of the flexible magnet family which also includes rolls.  Despite having different configurations, one element that sets these materials in a class of their own is their magnetic property. In this blog, we take a closer look at magnets and answer some frequently asked questions.

What are flexible magnets?

Flexible magnets are designed for applications that don’t require too much magnetic strength. However, they feature multiple magnetization patterns to give them the much-needed holding power. They can be twisted, coiled, bent, cut, printed, and easily adhered to metallic surfaces. Magnetic sheets, strips, and rolls can be cut or scored according to your specifications.

What is magnetism?

The term magnetism pertains to the strength of attraction or repulsion that occurs between objects and substances composed of materials such as iron, cobalt, steel, and nickel. It is the motion of electric charges that results in the force of magnetism. Two magnets will attract at opposite poles and repel at similar poles.

Can a magnet lose its magnetism?

Flexible magnets such as magnetic strips and magnetic rolls lose a negligible amount of their magnetism over time. The loss can only be significant if you store them close to high temperatures, power lines, or other magnets. Following basic care tips is enough to ensure that your magnetic strips or rolls serve their purpose for extended periods.

What can flexible magnets do?

Flexible magnets enjoy many common applications in the home and across different industries. Magnetic strips and rolls are used in toys, refrigerator displays, car signs, POP displays, games, magnetic signs, business cards, message boards, shelve labels, educational products, and arts and crafts, among other consumer and commercial applications. Printable magnetic strips are used in warehouses, classrooms, trade shows, shipping rooms, POP displays, labs, and office and visual aids, among other labelling applications.
