Spice racks in Australia - types of spice rack choices for your lifestyle
A spice rack is a handy kitchen organiser that stores your bottles and jars of spices and seasonings so that you can easily locate them when you need them. Not only will this save you time when it comes to cooking, it also helps you to maintain a clean and attractive kitchen space at all times. The most common types of spice racks include:
In-cabinet spice racks - These spice racks are made to go into a kitchen cabinet or kitchen pantry and are often adjustable and versatile.
In-drawer spice racks - These spice drawer organisers can be placed neatly inside kitchen drawers. They typically have slanted levels so that you can see each spice label, such as the Madesmart Spice Drawer Organiser.
Magnetic or wall-mounted spice racks - A shelf spice rack is mounted onto the kitchen wall, while magnetic spice racks attach to the fridge.
Free-standing spice racks - This spice rack sits on shelves or countertops. They can be expandable or multi-tiered to maximise space.
Countertop spice racks - A swivel spice rack features a turntable or carousel design that sits on the countertop and can be rotated for easy selection.
Consider the number of spice jars and storage space available in your home
When it comes to buying a spice rack that fits into your lifestyle, there are a few factors you need to consider first:
Amount. Think about how many spice bottles, condiments and other seasonings you own. Will you need a multi-tiered gourmet kitchen spice rack or a smaller solution to store the basics?
Location. Will you have a spice rack set displayed on the countertop, a wall-mounted shelf with stackable racks in the pantry or a tier rack to save space?
Kitchen decor. If your kitchen style favours natural materials, go for a wooden spice rack. If you prefer modern and minimalist, a chrome spice rack may be better.
Frequency of use. Consider whether you reach for the spices before every meal or if you only use them when experimenting with new flavours in the kitchen.
From tier spice racks to revolving racks - easy to use spice organiser designs
Spice rack organisers come in many different designs to suit different kitchen spaces and uses. The White Magic i-hook holds up to 8kg of spice jars and bottles and can be attached to a variety of surfaces, including pantry doors and other sealed flat surfaces, making it easy to 'grab and go'.
The Joseph Joseph CupboardStore Under Shelf Spice Rack helps you maximise cupboard storage by attaching to the space beneath your existing shelves with a pull-out compartment for easy sorting.
You can also find 4 tiered spice rack organizers by D.Line, including the 3 Tier Chrome Spice Rack to hold 18 spice bottles, vintage jar sets by Kilner and stackable wall-mounted organisers by Mobin with large openings for easy access and refilling.
Revolving racks are another great pantry storage solution for spices. The Davis & Waddell Romano Spice Jar Set with rack has a Lazy Susan base so that you can turn it around to find what you need.

Labelling your spices in your spice rack
Whether you choose a tiered hanger, a drawer organiser or a rotating kitchen spice rack - labelling each spice jar is an excellent way to keep them all in order for easy selection. Consider arranging them in alphabetical order to make finding them even easier.
Benefits of spice rack organisers
A storage rack for your spices comes with many benefits for you and your kitchen:
Kitchen counter organiser. Keep your countertops and pantries organised and free from clutter by storing your seasonings in a spice rack.
Hold bottles upright and in place. A spice rack is made to hold glass jars and keep them safe and secure.
Customise. An expandable spice rack will allow you to customise it to the size of your kitchen space and number of spices.
Maximise. A tier spice rack is an excellent way to maximise vertical shelf space. You can find two, three or more tiered racks for organising your seasonings while saving pantry, cabinet and counter space.
Decorative. Spice racks come in many different colours, styles and materials to make fitting them into any kitchen decor nice and easy.
