Kitchens need to be comfortable and organized in order to be a place where people want to spend their time. Whether you have lots of space to work with or you’re limited on counter and cabinet storage, kitchen items that provide functionality and versatility are the only ones that are going to make the cut. That’s why we love using a mug rack that saves space, adds convenience and works as a décor piece.
The best mug racks help to free up both counter and cabinet space by attaching to the wall or under cabinets. Providing an alternative area to store mugs, users now have more space for other dishes in their cabinets. For coffee and tea drinkers, mug racks also conveniently place their favorite mugs within arm’s reach of their coffee maker or teapot. We also like that mug racks are out in the open and put mugs on display, adding a finished look to a kitchen with matching modern mugs or a touch of flair with a collection of kitschy cups from around the world.
Mug racks can also be used to hang kitchen utensils, keys, tea towels, oven mitts and aprons. It’s not easy to pass the kitchen test and get a permanent place in one of the most used rooms in the home, but we think these mug racks are worth it.
