Do you enjoy wine and have desires of starting your own collection? Space is always an equalizer when it comes to designs, but the great thing about a wine storage is it can be visually pleasing. While some people have wine cellars or even a room completely dedicated to wine, it is also very easy to inspire ingenuous ways to store in your kitchen.
If you have the space and a large enough collection a wine cellar it is probably the most desirable way to keep your wine. Here are some ideas of very different ways to design when available this option.
Grasp the organic beauty of the natural feeling of wood, the smell alone must be intoxicating. Vines and grapes give the feeling of being right in a vineyard. There is something about the comforting feel of this design that breaths authenticity.
Another wine cellar idea is to emote an almost speakeasy type feel, or something more intimate and private. The stone is cold and gives the impression that the wine has been there aging gracefully for ages. The open space makes the room feel like there is that much more wine there, and displays it in a way that looks entirely intent on being a connoisseur.
Ways To Store Your Wine In The Kitchen
A lot of people store their wine in cellars and some even have rooms fully dedicated to their wine, but most connoisseurs of wine don’t have that kind of space so it’s important to find an aesthetically pleasing way to store your wine in the kitchen.
Some kitchen wine racks take up an entire wall with shelving. However, wooden shelves give a rustic homey feel to a kitchen. There is enough space for a rather large sized collection, but it fits in nicely without cluttering
When a kitchen has enough space for an island it is an excellent space for wine storage. A kitchen island keeps the counter space open for use while cleverly turning the area below into wine storage. Also try a glass storage that can easily be interchanged with a wood storage or doors to accommodate design aesthetics.
Design Your Own Wine Room
It would be lovely to have an actual wine cellar, and sometimes all the space you have is for shelves, there is also another option. Create your own wine room. It doesn’t have to be enormous, but there are plenty of creative ways to make a special room all for your Pinot Grigio or Shiraz.
You might consider a pantry or a large closet. It goes into the wall and gives a ton of space for your wine, but remains visually pleasing by keeping a clear door. When people visit they have to opportunity to view your collection.
If you have a room with a lot more space keep the contemporary style and feeling of openness by making the room entirely glass almost showcasing the wine as an especially coveted item.
