Homeowners today have a strong appreciation for wine and are choosing to include wine cellars or displays in their homes at increasingly high rates. Wine collectors of all levels require some kind of storage system. And not just any system—one that matches the luxury of their home.
Once a homeowner has committed to collecting wine, they are usually surprised with the amount of wine storage and display options that are available. From custom wine cabinets to sliding doors, classic wood, and tensioned cables, today’s wine collectors have a wide array of luxurious features and finishes to choose from when determining where and how they would like to store their wine. Fortunately there are wine cellar professionals who can help create a design that is tailored to their home’s current style, feel, and size. Here are some of the most popular wine storage options available:
Wine Refrigerators (also referred to as Wine Cabinets)
This is probably the most traditional style of wine storage. Wood and/or metal wine cabinets are popular options and, depending on the size or scope of a homeowner’s collection, can be incorporated into an existing area (such as the kitchen) or they may be in a completely separate area of the home. Wine refrigerators or cabinets all feature wine cooling systems that will maintain wine bottles at the appropriate temperature for ideal preservation and long term storage.
Custom Built Wine Cellars
Climate controlled custom walk or reach-in wine cellars are quickly becoming the norm in many luxury home designs these days. Custom wine cellars create a feeling of warmth and tradition with the air of luxury and style that many of today’s homeowners strive for. Custom built reach-in wine cellars are particularly popular in more modern or contemporary spaces and are often incorporated into open concept great rooms, living or dining areas. These compact wine cellars often contain metal or cable wine racking and are encased in glass so that the homeowner’s wine collection becomes a focal point that is on display for all to see and appreciate.
Wall Wine Storage Systems
If a homeowner really doesn’t collect a large amount of wine but is looking to add wine storage as part of their decor without sacrificing too much space, they may want to consider wall wine storage. A simple accent wall displaying a small wine collection can not only add to a room’s interest and appeal, but can also evoke a modern contemporary feeling or rustic charm, depending on what type of wine racking is used.
Whether your preference is for a wine cabinet, custom wine cellar or simple wine wall display, whichever wine storage system you choose should reflect your personal wine collecting and consumption habits and complement your home’s existing style. With the wide variety of wine storage options available on today’s market, you should have no difficulty finding a design and/or wine storage system that would work well for you.
