A tidy refrigerator is central to an organized kitchen, but as Nate Berkus reminds us, keeping on top of this space is often no easy feat.
The process of organizing a refrigerator inevitably comes with those items that are notoriously hard to arrange, and among them are bottles. These items are as bulky as they are fragile, but we'd be lying if we said they don't end up in our (already over-filled) fridge pockets or squeezed between some leftovers on our top shelf. But how can we improve our bottle storage habits? The HGTV designer has a refreshing solution.
'As my own home evolves, I know that all of you who love organizing your homes are evolving as well,' Nate begins.
'One product from the Nate Home collection that I haven't used before but I am now very into is the six-bottle organizer. It drives me crazy having these [bottles] in the drawer to the refrigerator or, worse, lying on their side, so this really is the perfect solution [for] maximizing storage.' And the best part? You can pick up this game-changing product via Amazon below.

Designed by Nate Berkus, this rack holds three bottles horizontally, so we can grab, go, and get on with our day (or night, in the case we're using it for wine). It works equally well when organizing pantries, too.
Nate's collection with mDesign has already elevated our kitchen storage game in more ways than one – starting with his 2-Tier Sliding Pull-Out Drawer Organizer, another fridge storage solution to which we've already penned a love letter. However, this bottle organizer continues to take storage up a notch, thanks to its 2-tier design that uses vertical space instead of valuable kitchen real estate.
Like all of the products in his collection, this vertical storage aims to elevate the every day – because there is no reason why functional products shouldn't be beautiful. The transparent and minimal design slots seamlessly in every style of the kitchen (or wine bar) and is so good-looking it's hard to believe it's so practical.
Since Nate’s first appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show in 2002, he has become one of the world’s most recognizable interior designers. He has authored two New York Times bestselling books and stars alongside his husband, Jeremiah Brent, in HGTV's Nate & Jeremiah Home Project.
'Nate Home is about elevated basics,' the designer adds. 'To me, this collection is like the perfect pair of jeans, the perfect white pocket tee, the perfect pair of chinos that you wear all the time over and over again. It’s dependable, well crafted, and because of those things, it’s also accessible luxury.'
If there's ever a time to rethink our bottle storage, it's now.
