It’s easy to just enter a store and buy the first wine rack you see, that common type that everyone has and which serves its purpose well but doesn’t really stand out in any way. However, if you want something different, something that’s more than just a simple countertop wine rack, you need to do some research and look into several other options and styles. You could also consider something on a larger scale if you have the space. Maybe you could turn a room into your very own wine cellar. The possibilities are almost endless. Start with a few examples we’ve put together here and let your mind go wild from there.
In case space is limited, consider a wall-mounted wine rack. This way is very simple and versatile and can gold up to 12 bottles of wine. It has grooves where the bottles are inserted neck first, being held horizontally and forming a pretty cool sculpture. This particular model is made of sapele, maple and wenge and is attached to the wall using two screws. You can buy it for $185.
But a small wine rack with room for only one case of wine is simply not enough when you’re a serious collector. If that’s the case then you might want to consider building some custom shelves on which you can store and display your wine collection. Don’t make it too fancy. Just make sure the conditions are right. It would be nice to add some built-in lighting so you can easily look at each bottle without disturbing it.
If you’re an entertainer that likes to have people over for wine tastings and other events, make things easier and more convenient on you and everyone else. Consider a serving cart with a built-in wine rack. This way you’ll be able to easily pick the right bottles of wine and bring them to your guests along with all the accessories needed.
Wine racks usually fit well in kitchens, especially in custom-designed ones. So if you’re considering a remodel soon or if you have some space left for a wine rack, you should definitely go for it. You could opt for a grid-like system of shelves that lets you store your wine bottles vertically in order to save floor and counter space.
But wine racks aren’t meant to only be functional storage-wise. A lot of times they double as decorations and sculptural features for the room’s they’re in. This design is a perfect example. It looks beautiful even when no bottles are stored in it. Moreover, its design is versatile enough to fit in corners and in a variety of spaces and decors.
