Top Solutions for Storing Water Bottles

The first step to organizing and storing water bottles is purging unused ones. Everyone typically has a favorite water bottle, and they take up too much space to keep multiple lying around. If your household has a larger collection of water bottles, ask everyone to pare down to one or two. If you must keep water bottles that aren't used daily, hide them on a top shelf.

When looking for ways to organize reusable water bottles in your home, it's essential to consider the size and number of bottles you have and the space you have available. Depending on your needs, you may want a storage solution that can hold several bottles at once or fit in a small space.

Repurpose A Wine Rack

Repurposing an old wine rack is a great way to store water bottles. Surprisingly, most water bottles are the same diameter as wine bottles, so it is a great option. Not only does a wine rack allow for the most efficient use of space, but it also elevates the aesthetic of your kitchen. Instead of an unsightly stack of water bottles, you now have an attractive water bottle holder in your kitchen. 

It's incredible how much of a difference repurposing a wine rack can make. When using this storage solution, it is important to measure the space you are using beforehand, as not every wine rack can accommodate different sizes and types of water bottles. Arrange each row so the taller bottles are at the back with the smallest ones in front. We recommend this one if you don't have an unused wine rack.

Over-the-Door Organizer

An over-the-door organizer is ideal for maximizing storage space using the back of a pantry door. The organizer will hang on any door or wall and has numerous compartments of different sizes to accommodate all sorts of water bottles.

The Bottle Boss is an ingenious way to store bottles to any flat surface, including inside cabinet doors. The cable holds bottles in place until their next use.  

Stackable Water Bottle Storage Rack

The stackable water bottle storage rack is a great solution for anyone looking for an efficient way to store their water bottles on a pantry shelf or even a countertop. This storage rack allows you to stack the water bottles making it the perfect solution for limited space.

Storage Baskets

Storage baskets are a simple yet timeless water bottle storage solution for your collection. They provide easy access and organization, making it easy to locate specific bottles when you need them. Storage baskets come in many sizes and shapes, so you can find one that fits your needs perfectly. 

You can use a single basket to store multiple bottles of different sizes or have several baskets to hold one type of bottle each. With storage baskets neatly lined up on a cabinet shelf, you'll say goodbye to water bottle chaos forever. If you don't have enough room in your cabinets, they are aesthetic enough to place on a nearby shelf.

Wire Stand

The wire stand is a great water bottle storage idea for anyone looking to keep their kitchen cupboards neat and organized. This wire stand has a stacked shelf design that can hold multiple sizes of water bottles, from large one-liter sized containers down to smaller 16oz bottles. 

The advantage of this system over traditional cabinets or drawers is that you can easily see what type of bottle you need, without having to dig through them all. Another great feature is its portability; the stand can be quickly moved out of the way when not in use.

If you prefer to keep your water bottles within sight and reach, consider placing a decorative tray on your countertop to hold your water bottles. Depending on the style of your space, you could use a lazy susan type tray or a rectangular wooden tray.

Under the Sink Storage

Under sink organizers are useful to store so many different essentials and keep them out of the way. We personally use this under sink organizer for storing dish soap and cleaning solution and then water bottles sit on the top shelf.

Bottle Drying Rack

If you use and wash your water bottles daily, you may not need a storage solution. Properly dry them on this water bottle drying rack so they don't grow mildew, and then refill them on your way out the door.

Cube Storage System

If you are short on space and can't find anywhere to put a water bottle rack, consider adding small cube storage to a hallway. Place your water bottles in the cubes and keep them out of the way.

Heavy Duty Command Hooks

If you only use one or two water bottles, use heavy-duty command hooks on convenient wall space. Hang your water bottle on the hook for easy storage when you walk in the door. We prefer these hooks because they hold up to 15 pounds.

Wire Hanger Storage

Heavy-duty wire hangers are a great water bottle storage hack. Slip the water bottle handle over the wire hanger and hang it in the entry closet. 

Slim Rolling Cart

Slim rolling carts are a great place to store excess water bottles. Arrange the water bottles in the cart and then roll the cart into the hallway, pantry, or anywhere that makes sense for you and your space.
