Wine Racks - Style And Function For Your Home

Jan 15, 2008
Whether you have a large or small wine collection, you'll need one or more wine racks. Wine racks have gone beyond simple storage solutions in recent years - they're often an intergral part of home decor. Before you purchase your first or next wine rack, here are a few factors to consider.

The first issue to consider when considering wine racks is how many bottles you'd like to store. Wine racks come in all shapes and sizes, from table top models to huge multi hundred bottle models. Some wine collectors use multiple smaller wine racks to organize and segment their wine collections.

Next, consider your home's decor and available space. Don't worry, there are functional and stylish wine racks available no matter your space availability or decor. Wine racks can be wall mounted, free standing, set on a table top, or as part of a larger piece of decorative furniture. A beautiful wine cabinet with multiple uses is a very stylish and refined addition to any home. So, you'll need to consider function vs. fashion and determine how much decorative emphasis you want your wine rack to provide.

Also consider the style and texture of your decor. Is your decor rustic, minimalist, country, or modern? You'll find that wine racks are available in numerous compositions. Would a rustic wooden wine rack fit best in your home, or a sleek brushed metal wine rack? It's up to you. Choose a wine rack that complements your home and adds a sense of your personal style.

Our personal preference is a wine rack that offers display and storage of other wine related items in addition to the wine bottles themselves. In essence, we like a focal point "wine center" with all our wine and wine accessories in one place. Numerous stylish options are available, with ample storage and display options for wine books, wine accessories, wine glasses, and even wine art.

Wooden wine racks are probably the most known and available wine racks option. Wooden wine racks are not only available in aged wood, but also polished oak and many other treated woods. Wooden wine racks are especially popular because they seem to evoke the atmosphere of a rustic, country winery.

Wine racks are available in numerous price points, from under $30 to several thousand dollars. Most wine collectors own more than one wine rack, both for storage and convenience reasons. We prefer one central wine storage center, and a smaller wine rack for some of our purchases on our U.S. wine trails travels.

Your choice of wine racks should really be a reflection of your personal style as well as your wine storage needs. Consider incorporating your wine rack into your home decor, as wine racks are just as fashionable as they are functional.
