An orderly spice rack makes your kitchen instantly feel more like a place in which Diane Keaton would cook. A simple organizing helper could be the difference between chaos (and going out to buy cinnamon yet again) and the confidence to take over Martha Stewart’s media empire.
Versatile spice racks can also moonlight as perfume displays, essential oil organizers, and exhibit spaces for your collectible figurines. A few of our favorite options, below.
A Clear Choice
Expands to fit your space. Amazon
These adaptable chrome step shelves are expandable (from 12.5 inches to 25 inches in width) and come in three levels. They offer enough support for spice jars and heavier cans. They don’t look too shabby, either.
Increase Your Storage
An easy-to-clean set of steps to display all your spices. Amazon
This spice rack may not look like much, but it’s got everything you need to create a beautifully organized spice cabinet (or a little countertop spice station). Three tiers lined with non-skid pads can hold about 24 average-sized spice jars. They’re tiered heights that make it easy to spot labels, and each tier is wide enough to fit an occasional oversized container. You can, of course, adapt it to your needs and store anything else too—pantry staples, craft supplies, Funko Pops, whatever.
A Clean Design
Natural look to fit the space you have. Amazon
Got a tiny kitchen, or just want a versatile rack that fits either a cabinet or inside a drawer? These bamboo organizers look great and expand from 8.75 inches to 15.5 inches wide. They work great for setting up a cocktail station or figurines, too. Meanwhile, the drawer version has slanted shelves that fit four spices per shelf, which is great for fitting into small spaces.
Use All The Space You Have
Keep your cabinets clear. Amazon
Mount one of these racks and never fumble for coriander again: this steel-wire rack has three tiers for holding spices, jelly jars, cans of tomatoes, or anything else.

Best If You Have The Space
All the room you’ll need. Amazon
