1. Don't have a ton of space in your kitchen? Putting your spices on your pantry door, or any cupboard where you keep your sundries, is a clever space-saving solution for keeping them in their place. This small space spice organizer set up by Nida with The Home Diary proves our point.
2. This kitchen cabinet organizer features built-in narrow shelves to hold all your seasonings. Home Design at Meadowview decided to go with oak for the interior of her cupboard and cabinet doors, and we're crushing hard at the results. Plus, including extra space for a coffee station gets our vote every time.
3. Jars of spices always look so inviting in any kitchen space, so why not keep them right on your countertop like The Tidy Pantry does here. And with a lazy Susan base made of stainless steel, you can spin to your heart's content to find just the right kind of pepper to give your meal a pop. This is a great idea for anyone who might be short on cabinet space, yet has a little extra kitchen counter space.
4. A spice rack is an excellent opportunity to add lots of character to a kitchen wall. Instead of keeping your seasoning in their store bought containers, take a cue from this charming approach from Beaumonde Woodworks and label a set of glass jars with an old school embosser.
5. A spice drawer is an excellent way to keep your favorite flavors handy, like this streamlined idea by Organised Style Living. This one is for all you drawer organizers out there who love to keep things neatly tucked away and out of sight.
6. Mel Combs is a self-described urban farmer who grows, cans, and preserves most of her food on her own. Which means she needs to have a solid selection of seasonings and different spices on hand to constantly create her concoctions. These shelves keep everything out in the open for her and are also just really inspiring to look at. Simply refill when the goods get low.
7. If you want to store spices that you use on the daily, keep them close to your stove on this cute countertop spice rack that features mini risers. This small kitchen set up by One Space at a Time can be bought as a set, which would make for an excellent gift; hint, hint. And don't you just love these glass bottles with the wood tops and pretty spice labels?
8. Spice racks don't really have to be fancy, but this pretty design by Scribe Studio and organized by The Tidy Nest Team is so Instagram ready in all the best ways. All those designer spice containers and marble shelves are definitely dreamy. Your oregano, cumin, and cinnamon never had it so good.
9. We like this spice storage rack spotted on Craft Boraki's grid so much. Sure, it's because how utterly charming and well organized it is, but most of all because it was a gift from her husband who also made all the labels. How sweet and spicy is that? Using mason jars as spice bottles is just so cute.
10. Well, hello, pantry organization! Storing your spice jars inside your pantry on tiered shelves is an excellent idea, especially when you have a lot of spices. You might even consider putting your spices on a turntable instead of tier spice racks for easy access as well. Naddy Ned loves a white label and so do we, which is why this spice rack and supply space is oh-so-satisfying. Many of those containers can be found on Amazon.
11. The placement of these pots, pans, and spices is definitely an homage to Julia Child, and we are so here for it. A metal peg board with hooks holds a variety of skillets, while an attached magnetic spice rack displays tins from Gneiss Spice. This seems like a doable kitchen organization DIY, don't you think? It's your very own wall mount spice rack ... and then some.
12. Spice cabinet? How about a spice drawer. Specifically, shelves hidden behind a facade of drawers on a range. We say a gigantic yes to this idea spotted on the Carey Larsen Team feed. It's easy access to your favorite flavors, making cooking and baking that much easier.
