28 Best Spice Rack Ideas to Keep Your Collection Organized

Never underestimate the power of an organized kitchen: pot racks, under-the-sink storage solutions, drawer organizers, baskets and bins for stowing utensils, food storage canisters and spice rack organizers are a few ways to guarantee everything in your kitchen has a home. Even in the most beautiful kitchens, the spice collection often goes overlooked — leaving mismatched jars haphazardly tossed in a drawer or cabinet. To help you tackle the mess, we've rounded up the best spice rack ideas that are not only chic but easy and affordable to recreate.

Whether you've got a small kitchen design or a spacious butler's pantry, you'll find a spice rack idea to suit your square footage. We've found pull-out spice racks for kitchen cabinets, magnetic jars for the refrigerator, hanging wall solutions (including floating shelves) and modern organizers that look great on the counter. There's also rotating spice racks that can be hidden in small corners and multi-tier organizers for a well-designed pantry. And, we didn't forget to sprinkle in a few DIY ideas from our favorite bloggers.

With just a little bit of effort, these spice racks will quickly tame the chaos in your kitchen. Before you start labeling and organizing, discard any spices or herbs that may have expired. Hint: Aside from checking the label, the best way to determine a spice's freshness is by its smell.

Keep your everyday seasonings in a rotating rack, so it's possible to quickly find what you need. With chic, bulb-shaped glass jars, this compact 16-jar spice rack even comes with free refills for up to five years.

Turn your pantry door into extra storage with a six-tier organizer, perfect for dry ingredients, snacks and spice jars. This is also a great way to conceal your spices without taking up cabinet space.

Rather than go for a traditional spice rack, consider a set of floating shelves. Just don't forget to pick up some aesthetic glass spice jars to complete the look.

Find a double-layer spice rack that's sleek, stylish and expands to fit the length of your cabinet. Plus, a non-slip bottom ensures it's stable, so you can easily stack additional items down below.

Opt for an aesthetically pleasing spice rack equipped with eight jars on a rotating base. You also have the option to stack another storage solution on top to double your storage. The best part? When you shake or pour, the jar automatically dispenses 1/4 tsp. of seasoning.
