Do you feel like you are drowning in charging cords and electronic devices? Or are you sick of charging cords, phones and tablets being strewn all over your home? I know I was! So in this post, I'm sharing the best charging station options to help you get your chargers, cords, and devices organized once and for all. These stylish and functional charging stations will help wrangle all of your family's technology and look great doing it.
Our family's needs for technology charging have changed drastically in the last few years. Remember back when the only thing you really had to charge was your phone and maybe an iPad? These days I feel like our family has SO many electronic devices–iPads, tablets, phones, Kindles and headphones. It became harder and harder to keep the electronic devices and cord clutter under control as our kids got older!
Fortunately, there are so many great options out there for charging stations. Treat yourself to more than just a cord in a basket as your phone holder!

Charging Stations for the Whole Family
I love all of these options, but a few were total standouts or really solved a specific problem that I see a lot when it comes to keeping gadgets neat AND convenient. These are my top recommendations for charging multiple devices and reducing electronics clutter.
Charge Your Phone, Watch and AirPods at the Same Time
Once I started looking, I quickly found the perfect charging station for my own electronic devices. I wanted something that felt like decor and would hold my personal technology items on my bedside table. This little wood charging dock is so pretty and has a spot for my phone, AirPods and Apple watch. (My phone isn't on the charging station in the photo because I had to use it to take the photo, but you can see the plug and stand to hold it.)
Easy DIY Family Charging Station
I love my personal charging station, but we also need family charging station ideas for the kids' tablets, school Chrome books, phones and wireless headphones. We ended up creating our own wall-mounted DIY family charging station for ALL the things we have now. But for those of you who want the convenience of buying a pre-made charging station, l've got you covered in the rest of this post!
My sister recently bought these nightstands with a charging drawer for her primary bedroom and she loves them! This charging nightstand has a pullout drawer with a 3-plug extension and one power strip with USB ports, so you can charge multiple items. I love that it hides them away, the cords are totally hidden, and it looks like a gorgeous piece of furniture. Not to mention the shallow drawer above the charging drawer and the two below offer ample storage.
One Charging Station for Tablets and Phones
Need something that will hold all your devices easily? This multi device charging station is perfect! It has multiple pockets, including a tablet holder and even space for a laptop. You can recharge all your devices at once which is a total win. The tray in the bottom holds your cables neatly and there are compartments for five devices. This is the perfect size if you need to take up as little counter space as possible while charging several things at once. This is similar to the one I put in Thea's kitchen and she LOVES it! This would also be perfect as a desk organizer for all devices in your office.
Space-Saving Acrylic Organizers
These acrylic device docts mount on the wall, keeping your desk or counters clear, which I love. The cell phone charging station has room for three smartphones or similarly sized devices. The other option is an acrylic station that holds only two gadgets, but one is sized for iPhones or other smartphones and one is large enough for most tablets. The downside to these is that the charging cables are not hidden and hang down the wall, but if you are short on space, that is probably not a huge worry. If you like this but don't want to drill holes, try command hooks!
There are some other awesome family charging stations I found as well. You can see them below!

Aren't these options awesome? Keep in mind these would all make a great gift for the tech lover in your life (or maybe just to keep your spouse organized). There are so many great ideas to keep you and your electronics organized. Don't forget that using a label on each cord will help you keep it straight what charges what, and who's cord is who's. This eliminates cord stealing and accidentally tossing a cord that is specific to one type of device. Now you go get organized and I will keep thinking about my own DIY charging station ideas to solve our other charger issues!
