Before you go clicking "add to cart" for a mug holder, let's take a look at some of the considerations to remember to ensure that you get the best. Size, capacity, and type are a few things to remember when it comes to choosing a mug holder.
The first consideration when selecting a mug holder would be how many mugs or cups need hanging. It's common for coffee (or tea, or hot cocoa!) lovers to have more than one mug on hand. Some love collecting seasonal, themed, or sentimental mugs, and have a vast collection. Your mug holder should be able to accommodate the mugs you wish to use or display.
If you're one who loves oversized mugs that you can wrap both hands around on while sipping a hot cup of Joe, then the holder must have ample space to fit various sized cups. This is especially true for tier-type mug holders where space between the layers or the bottom layer from the base could be limited.
Moving forward from the quantity, you have space availability. Luckily for us, coffee mug holders nowadays come in many shapes and sizes and are versatile enough to cater to our space needs.
Go for a stand-alone holder if you have available countertop or table space. These often come in tiers with a broader base for stability, much like a tree. The branches are where the mugs hang, some by the handle, others by the cup opening.
Tree-type mug holders are great display items that are functional at the same time. You can quickly grab your favorite mug for a caffeine boost. Some even come with a rotating feature so you can easily turn your holder to grab your cup of the day!
You can also find mug holders that are mountable to a wall or an existing cabinet shelf, much like a wine glass rack hanging under a cupboard. These alternatives are great space-saving hacks plus accentuate any wall or space they're placed.
When choosing a wall-mountable holder, safety is crucial. Ensure that the screws provided are strong enough, especially if it'll be holding a lot of mugs. For clip-on racks that slip over a shelf, check if the width of the holder will fit your cabinet shelf.
Mug holders can do more than keep your coffee cups neatly organized. You can get a mug tree with a storage basket on top or at the bottom for fruit, saucers, sugar packets, or K-cups.
You also have the option of going for an expandable rack that doubles as an organizer for other items such as your kitchen utensils, potholders, a chef's apron, and the like.
Lastly, there are minimalist designs where a pole and hook are all that's included. You have the opportunity to hang other items that go with coffee, such as stirrers, K-cups, and creamers. This way, all of your coffee necessities are in one nifty spot in the kitchen!
Product reviews are where you'll find crucial information about any item you're interested in getting. You can find out if the mug holder is stable and keeps its balance well, if the base is secure and wide enough so that it doesn't topple over, or if a wall-mountable one can carry the intended weight load.
You can also get information about whether the material lasts, such as stainless steel not rusting or wood not rotting. What better way to discover more about the product than by those who've purchased and used it already?
