What are the best Water Bottle Storage Ideas?
As people try to drink less soda and more water there has been an explosion in the popularity of reusable water bottles like Yeti’s and HydroFlasks. Plus, travel mugs for coffee and tea are super popular too.
But this has led to kitchen clutter problem. How do you store those water bottles and travel mugs at home? There never seems to be enough kitchen space.
And note, some of the pictures show wine bottles being stored, but you can use these organizers to hold water bottles too.
Let’s get into the list of water bottle storage ideas and hopefully you’ll find the perfect solution for your home or office.
1) Repurpose a Wine Rack

You can put the magazine holder on its side and then stack other holders on top.
Or you can place the magazine holders upright. They provide you with lots of options.

These would make a good addition to your SodaStream station.
7) Put your Water Bottles onto a Lazy Susan with sides

One of her products is this ceramic bottle holder. This holds one bottle at a time so it isn’t great if you have lots of bottle. But if you want an attractive, minimalist option, check this out. It’ll stop your water bottle from rolling around in the cupboard.
9) Store your bottles upright in a storage container
A simple option to keep your bottles together is to place them upright in a plastic storage container.
Then put the container on a shelf, inside a cabinet, in the laundry room, in the pantry or anywhere else you have room within easy reach of the kitchen.
What’s good about this easy option is that you can store a variety of bottles of different sizes.
And it’s a cheap option too. You can find plastic crates and containers at most dollar stores or department stores.
10) Use Drawer Dividers inside a deep kitchen drawer
If you have a newer kitchen, you likely have some deep, pull-out drawers. You can get some drawer dividers to section off an area in the drawer to dedicated to storing your bottles.
The bamboo drawer dividers shown above are a popular option available on Amazon.
They are functional, but they also look really good too.
