Wine racks come in all shapes and sizes. They can be gorgeous displays of art adding to the modern décor of your home or they can be large sturdy wine racks hidden away in your cellar. In short, there are wine racks available for whatever wine storage needs you might have.
Plenty of Questions
Have a look at your wine collection. See how many bottles you have and consider how many wines you want to keep for special occasions – are you going to need a small or large wine rack to store your collection?
You may also want to think about what you want from your wine rack – do you want it to solely store wines or would you like it to feature as a piece of art in your room? Maybe you would like it to be floor standing or even attached to your wall. There are some wine racks that will hold your wine glasses as well – would this add to your wine rack or simply compromise on your available space?
Corner Wine Racks
Many people choose corner wine racks as a great way of storing wine while saving space in the home. It’s important to measure the space correctly, though, to make sure you avoid purchasing a wine rack that won’t fit or looks too small compared to the rest of your décor.
Measure the corner of the room where you would like to put the corner wine rack. Ensure you leave a few extra centimetres so the wine rack fits snugly in place and acts as a buffer to prevent the surrounding decor from getting damaged or scratched during installation.
Corner wine racks can limit the number of wine bottles you store with less room available compared to having a wooden wine rack in a cellar. It’s important to make sure that you measure the amount of space you have available and the number of wine bottles you have collected to guarantee you will be able to store your full collection safely and comfortably.
Metal vs Wooden Corner Wine Rack
If you are looking to add a modern feel to the room, then consider a decorative metal wine rack. If it’s for the kitchen you may prefer a stainless steel wine rack to maintain the clean and spotless look, or perhaps a plain wooden wine rack if you choose to install the rack in your cellar.
A metal wine rack can be more beneficial if you have plenty of wine to show off and is more commonly used for storing the wine rather than recognised as a piece of art. Metal racks are usually narrower than those made from wood, allowing you to save more space which means that they are often the better option when you have less room to play with. However, if you can’t find the perfect metal corner rack in our range, then our bespoke wine rack service can create the perfect wine rack to suit your preferred space.
Purchasing the Right Wine Rack
Treat purchasing a wine rack as if you were purchasing some furniture. Think about what you want from it, how you would like it to look, and where you want it to go. If you treat the decision in this way, you are bound to choose the right wine rack for you and your home. We have plenty of different options to choose, from metal wine racks to wooden feature storage solutions, in a variety of different sizes and designs to suit your requirements.
