Hanging K Cup Storage – Simple DIY Eliminating Countertop Clutter

Hidden K Cup Storage in a Hanging Basket. Most of you guys know that I am really into non cluttered spaces. I’ve joked before that one day I’ll be sitting on the floor of my empty living room with nothing left but only what is hanging on the walls. I am similarly horrified by literally anything that sits on our countertops. Initially, for our K cup storage, I fought like heck to keep them stored up in the cupboard but it just was not going to happen. It was too inconvenient for two people who drink coffee every day.

So then all of our k cup storage ended up in a bowl beside our Keurig and that wasn’t totally horrible. (See before pic…)

I still wasn’t happy though.

It just seemed like I should be able to come up with something up off the counter.

I went on a search on Amazon for some ideas and ran into this basket designed specifically for hanging.

I played around between the idea of either putting it directly on our backsplash or even hanging it from the side of our refrigerator with a hanging magnet.

I ended up installing it on our kitchen backsplash using a command hook.

However, I do really like the idea of trying our k cup storage on the side of our refrigerator someday too!

Notice how we use a little touch lamp in our kitchen as a night light beside our coffee pot? Its a bit unconventional but I love the idea of using table lamps in less expected places!

We even have one in our master bathroom too!

I stole an idea from myself from a few months ago when I lined our plastic canisters with cute fabric to hide the dog treats that just HAVE to be out at all times.

I lined our pretty new basket with a red and white buffalo check towel and I think its just as cute as can be and adds a touch of red while also hiding the white cups.

Our new k cup storage is working great and was so easy to install!

    I agree that your backsplash steals the show! Is it ceramic tile, or wallpaper, or something else? Thank You!! Love your counters too.

      You're right Mary! I thought I had found the exact backsplash when I did the redo in 2019 but it was actually quite larger but it was the best I could do lol. Thank you so much! It was a lot of work but I'm happy with how it turned out.

      As for the backsplash I just love it, I have painted it with high gloss white paint since I installed it and its so easy to clean!

    That’s a great idea! I also try to keep my counters uncluttered and the hanging basket idea could work for holding many different items. Thank you for sharing!
