Installing floating shelves in any of the kitchen walls is another smart to utilize vertical space of your small kitchen. You may display your favorite mugs in those shelves and keep the rest of your kitchen mess-free. 

Designate one kitchen cabinet 

If you have enough cabinet space in the kitchen, you can designate one kitchen cabinet for storing all you mugs. This way will keep the mugs in hidden keeping your kitchen visually clutter-free.
