If you’re like me and are frequently adding pizazz to your recipes with a dash of this and a pinch of that, it’s easy to lose track of your spice collection if you don’t have a well-thought-out system to store them. Don’t let your simple 30-minute meal turn into a 45-minute meal preparation time because you had to dig for 15 minutes just to find the paprika! Take a look at some of these genius ways to store your spices and find the storage solution that fits your cooking habits.

Stay Sorted with a Spice Rack Drawer

A spice rack drawer is a hidden gem when it comes to organization. Its simple racking system jars neatly lined up and each label in full view for easy identification. Keep your spices neatly tucked away yet organized and easy to prioritize, categorize or alphabetized. This option can fit multiple drawer sizes making it a fantastic choice for either small or large spice collections.

Multi-Task Your Drawer Storage

If your drawer space is limited, or if you’re not quite willing to dedicate an entire drawer to your spice collection try a multi-purpose drawer. There are countless ways to customize your drawers so they serve multiple purposes. Combine a spice rack drawer accessory with any other drawer accessory, partitions, or dividers to create storage unique to your style of cooking.

An entire spice collection can be stored just as creatively with stainless steel drawers as standard wood drawers.

Open Shelving Can Display Your Everyday Spices

An open or floating shelf above your prep zone or cooking zone creates a space where your everyday spices are viewable from a good distance and easy to dash and stash as you craft your next meal. It’s also a popular space to stash your cooking oils alongside your spices. It’s no wonder this storage solution is growing in popularity for professional inspired kitchens designs. If you’d like to feel like a pro chef in your kitchen, this storage concept might be perfect for you.

Take Advantage of Small Spaces with a Pull-Out Spice Rack

Organize an entire collection of spices in only a few inches of space with a pull-out spice rack. Be surprised by the incredible amount of spice storage you attain within a small, thin space. Oftentimes, these ingenious pull-outs can be tucked behind a decorative turned post or column for an exceptionally clever use of space.
