Too many mugs in your kitchen cabinets? Here are some coffee cup organizer ideas to tidy things up.
These organizers come in all shapes and sizes and range from stand alone countertop mug trees to beautiful open shelving. I picked a few of my favorites to share here – and tried to find ones that are both practical and aesthetically pleasing.
Note: You can also see much of this collection on my Amazon store here.
Practical Coffee Mug Organizers
This countertop coffee mug storage shelf is more versatile than a mug tree. You can use the flat shelves to store a variety of coffees and tea bags and a sugar bowl. It would make a very nice addition to a coffee station. And the trays are removable for easy washing.
This wall mounted coffee mug storage rack features 12 hooks and a storage shelf that you can use to display decorative items or keep your coffee making supplies.
This curio style wall mounted mug rack has several cubbies where you can place coffee mugs.
You can fill all the spaces with mugs to display a collection or intersperse some decor items as well.
You can order this unit in a variety of different sizes that can accomodate from 4 to 36 mugs depending on the size of organizer that you choose.
Do You Really Need All The Mugs?
Before you run out and buy an organizer for your coffee mugs follow the steps that I outlined in the How to Organize Water Bottles post.
Remember, the best way to organize is to first get rid of what you don’t need.
If you have mugs that you don’t like, don’t want or don’t need – then give, donate, or dispose of those.
Personally, I try to limit the number of mugs that I have to one shelf in a glass front cabinet in my kitchen. If I acquire a new one, then an old one has to go.
Steps to Choosing a Coffee Cup Organizer
First, go through your coffee cup collection and pare it down if you can.
Second, decide where you want to store your coffee mugs –
- inside a cabinet,
- on the countertop,
- or on the wall.
Then measure your available space.
While you are at it, measure the tallest and widest mugs that you plan to store on your coffee cup organizer.
Select organizers that you find to be aesthetically pleasing.
Carefully read the dimensions and reviews for each product to make sure that your coffee cups will fit well on the organizer.
Order and install – you are set to go!
