Where is the best spot for spices in a kitchen? rack in a cupboard door? drawer? Pullout cabinet?

I had a pull out narrow, lower drawer, but our son used it as a ladder and to get to the spices on the lower part, u pretty much had to get down on your knees...Needless to say, I moved them to the cupboard to the left of my stove. Those pull out cabinets look great if the spices are not down low.

It really depends on how your kitchen is configured. Ideally the spice rack should be between the sink and cooktop. I like it in the upper cabinets so everything is close to eye level.

Just do not put them in a rack above your stove. Heat is not good for spices. I have my spices on a double level lazy Susan in a corner cabinet . In my previous kitchen I had a small drawer where I kept my spices. I really liked this set up. My Mother had a flip out spice rack built into her sink cabinet. It looked similar to the flip out areas on new cabinets but I was told these were for scrubbers and dish washing related items.

NOT crammed into the corner of a pantry with very deep shelves, which is where mine are. I wish I had a way to keep mine all within view simultaneously.

Ours are organized in a drawer right underneath our cooktop.

Thanks for all the input. I am leaning towards a door rack in a cabinet to the right of my stove. Considered the drawer route, but not sure if i could get used to looking down to find them!
