Searching for a spice rack to store your ground garlic, curry powder, dried basil and more, all in style?  We can help find a pretty yet practical solution. A spice rack is a must-have for any budding chef, or even if you just love to cook your own meals from scratch. Why? Tucking those spices away in your cupboard can take up quite a lot of valuable space, especially if your collection is large, and it can make it hard to see what you've got in your collection with ease.

We’ve picked out some of the most practical yet stylish spice racks for kitchen counters and cupboards. From fully stocked rack carousels to basic wire chrome racks, there’s something for every type of chef below. Selected spice racks below come with special size jars included, while others can be used with any standard spice jar – be sure to check before you buy. You'll also want some spice jar labels so that you can differentiate between your dried basil and your dried parsley with ease.

For more space-savvy storage inspiration for the kitchen, here are our favourite kitchen storage ideas.

Where to buy a spice rack?

Still looking for a spice rack for your kitchen? See where to shop for a new one below, to save space and add some style to your kitchen.

What to look for in your new spice rack?

If you're designing a small kitchen, then racks that attach to your cupboard doors are a handy space saver, but if you like everything to have its place, a rotating spice rack could be a nice and stylish addition to your kitchen worktop. Make sure you buy a spice rack that is a suitable size for you, if it’s too small then you’ll only end up filling the cupboard again, and if it’s too large then it can look a little sad if not fully stocked. 

Don't forget to opt for a spice rack that's made of a material that is easy to clean, as this will inevitably get dirty and covered in seasoning while you are cooking up a storm. 

You might also need to buy some jars for your spice rack, if your new rack doesn't come with them included. And, don't forget labels – you can find a selection of our favourites below.
