I am tired of just having all my rods leaning in the corner!
I like either vertical wall mount racks, or rolling rod racks. The vertical racks can be found in wood for less than $30, lots of styles of these out there. The rolling floor racks usually start at around $50 (which i find cheap for something that stores over >$1400 of my equipment). I store the rolling racks perpendicular to the wall and the wheels are great for moving them around//out of the way when needed.
I have many different types of fishing rods -- not just bass fishing stuff -- small ultralight panfish rods, normal bass rods, heavy duty trolling boat rods and even 12 foot surf rods(broken down). These can all be nicely stored into this kind of rack.
My choices in rod racks is one of function and ease of access. I know if you are trying to dress a room up or something the horizontal wall racks look better (to a woman ), not sure how many total rods the OP is trying to store and how often the rods will be going in and out of the racks
I got dark/red stain oak but had to hide in my fishing closet as it does not match my comtemp/modern styling of furniture and cabinets in ome.
Im still,using it itst behind closed doors.
I got this one, nice style, bad design.

Warning not very well built needs a lil modification but overall ok rack.
I have a rectangular 24 rod rack with 2 drawers at the bottom & it's nice, but not as handy to get at set-ups as the round rack. After looking at how warped the rod tubes I had stored in the rafters of my shed became, I wouldn't put any rods on a ceiling rack other than catfish sticks.

Which I bought at Dick's for $29.99 (think under the name Field and Stream). Sold to hold 16 rods and is on casters -holds approx 14 combos comfortably (maybe 15 with some juggling). With reel installed it's pretty tight (covers on all my reels). I have to put combos in based on reel height (handles facing in or out, etc) so they don't interfere with each other.
I store mine against a wall and swing it out to gain access to the back row of rods. Having casters on the rack is great.
