The rotating spice rack

A rotating spice rack is a classic choice. They’re smart on space — especially making good use of awkward pantry corners — and make it easy to grab the spices you need.

You can buy a rotating spice rack complete with jars or achieve a similar concept for less by placing your spices onto a lazy Susan or two.

Wall-mounted shelves

If you’ve got the luxury of available wall space in your pantry, how’s this for a stylish and functional solution?! We had to pick our jaws up off the floor when we stumbled upon this pic — so simple but effective. Oh, and because we know you’ll ask, you can buy those fabulous spice labels on Etsy here 😉

Try a wine rack

Sometimes a little out-of-the-box thinking is all you need to solve your home organisation woes. And using a wine rack to store your spices could be the perfect solution.

If all your wine racks are currently in use (guilty as charged over here!) why not DIY your own? This one is by Anika’s DIY life and she shares all the steps with plenty of photos over on her blog.

Tap into dead-space

Ok, so this one isn’t quite as glam as the others on the list but it’s clever and effective… and if you really wanted to, you could style it up by using a mini timber trolley and matching jars with stylish labels 😉

Create the ultimate spice drawer

If you can spare a drawer in your kitchen and dedicate it to spices, this is one of the most convenient ways to store your spices.

Here are 3 different ways on how you could create your own spice drawer!

Labelled lids

There’s no better way to maximise the space in your drawer than standing spices upright — just look at how many fit into the drawer below! Avoid the issue of not knowing what spices are what by adding labels to the lids. You can find plenty of spice jar labels on eBay or Etsy.

Gina recently took inspiration from this image to create her own version of the ultimate spice drawer. Using affordable Kmart canisters, she made minimalist black vinyl labels for the timber lids. See all the photos and get her tips to create a dreamy spice drawer here.

Silicone drawer liners

This Pinterest-worthy spice drawer solution is surprisingly affordable and simple to recreate! Linda says she wanted a cost-effective and elegant solution to serve her while renting and used a combination of mini mason jars, a foam spice drawer liner and fine point paint pen. Genius!
