Can a Wine Rack be Decorative and Functional?

While a wine cellar is an ideal place to house your wine collection, not everybody has the budget or space required to build a cellar of their own.

Without a dedicated room, your wine may need to be stored in a common area of the home, such as a living room, dining room, kitchen, or family room. Luckily, modern wine racks are both stylish and functional, making a beautiful display from your collection. Here are some creative ways you can add wine storage to almost any space.

Wall-Mounted Wine Racks

Freestanding wine racks are a great option for those who want to store both small and large amounts of wine. Freestanding wine racks require little to no installation. They are perfect for renters who cannot install a wine rack on a wall.

Many multi-story homes have space under the stairs that would be perfect for a wine cellar. Fill the space under the stairs with wine racks or create a complete wine cellar by building out a cabinet with cellar cooling system.

Unused Closet

An unused closet is a perfect place to create your wine cellar. A custom wine cabinet can be built to your closet’s specifications, complete with wine racks, cellar cooling system, insulation, and stylish doors.

There are many different creative ways you can add wine racks to any room. Mount them along a wall to make an eyecatching display, add freestanding wine racks to any room to store small and large collections, or take advantage of unused space under the stairs or inside a closet. Wine racks can be both stylish and functional, adding sophistication and interest to any space.
