This $16 Mug Rack Has More Than 1,700 5-Star Reviews and Frees Up Lots of Cabinet Space
Of all the many kitchen items that are difficult to store (ahem, cookware lids!), you could argue that your mug collection is the worst offender. Unless you have seriously ample cabinet space, it can be frustrating how much room they take up on a shelf — especially if you have a pretty expansive assortment. After all, mugs are one of those commonly gifted items that you feel bad about getting rid of, even though you could survive with just the one you use every day. Needless to say, many people tend to accumulate a pretty sizable amount of mugs and have nowhere else to store them outside of cabinets. Sure, there are mug trees, but they can only fit a handful and end up occupying precious counter space.
This wall-mounted mug rack is the perfect solution for someone looking to move their mugs out of the cabinet without adding any extra clutter. The set comes with four bars with four S-hooks each to hang your mugs safely against the wall, under a cabinet, or above an at-home coffee station. It’ll require some elbow grease, but it’ll be worth the added storage space and cozy look!
The Lakeside Collection Wall Mug Rack is made up of four steel bars and two hanging baskets, perfect for hanging above your coffee machine. While there are mug racks that store cups in a similar way, one distinct perk about this model is that you can customize how you want to hang the pieces. You can choose to spread them out if you don’t have enough room for all four on one wall, and you can also use some of the rods to hang other items such as utensils or cookware. The included baskets are also great additions for storing K-Cups, Nespresso pods, tea bags, and other coffee and tea must-haves.
With over 1,700 five-star reviews, these wall-mounted racks have been a hit in so many customers’ kitchens. One common thread in the reviews is that many people love the versatility of this item. Several people opt to use two racks for mugs, another for utensils, and the final rack with the two baskets for holding miscellaneous items such as produce or kitchen towels. “I used two of the bars to hang my pans and slid the lids into the top between the wall and the bar and two I hung on the bottom of my coffee bar shelf! Everyone who sees them comments on how beautiful they look!” one reviewer writes.
“This has been the best addition to our apartment! I have five mugs on each bar, and that’s plenty of room and holds up well! I actually didn’t need all four bars in that space, so I used the 4th in my bathroom as my apartment didn’t have a towel rack so it was more storage there too!” another person writes.
You could also hang the rods under your cabinets for even more space-saving storage. Rather than take up an entire wall, simply hang a rod or two under your cabinets and store your mugs from the S-hooks.
For an amazing price of $15, you can add a ton of storage to your space for mugs, cookware, utensils, and more!
