Wine Rack Design / October 23, 2018 / Giuliana Bundy.
Finding the right storage rack takes some considerable thought and care. If you have taken the time to build a collection of fine wines, then you will want something that will protect and preserve their quality. Wine storage racks come in a variety of materials and designs. You will want to consider your decor as well as keeping your wine safe. What are the top three features to find before you head off to the store to buy your wine storage rack?
Capacity - You will need to determine how much storage you are going to need. The probably involves more than just counting the bottles of wine you have. That will work fine if you never plan to purchase another or drink any of the bottles you have. You will have to sit down and think about how many more bottles you plan to collect and whether or not you will drink them. Can be difficult, but it is an important consideration. You don't want to have to improperly store your wine just because you didn't estimate your storage needs now. You also don't want a storage rack that will sit around virtually empty. If you plan on keeping a certain amount at all times, then that is the storage capacity you will need. Stick you your plan. You don't want the rack making your decision to purchase more wine just because it is empty.
Features - The features you will require will help you narrow down your choices. The design is one feature that you should consider first. Will help you determine the material you want the rack made. You should also decide whether you want the frame to mount on the wall or a freestanding unit. Look at your available space and determine which model fits in with your room. If you are planning on a freestanding unit, take some measurements so that you won't have to guess or estimate when you get to the store or purchase online.
You may also want your wine rack to store glasses. You should determine this before you decide to purchase. If you choose that you wish to separate storage for your stemware, this will narrow down your search even more.
Size And Design - Is part of the wine racks capacity but it can also be a function of design. If your space allows, you may want a statelier piece to show off your wine. You may also want a tabletop model that will enable you to keep your wine up without purchasing a large storage rack. There are many models to choose from and having a good idea of what you are looking for is best before you are overwhelmed with your choices in the store.
Make it a point to decide these factors before heading off to the store or shopping online. Just like anything else, if you know what you are looking for it will make the search much more comfortable.
