Adding a wine cellar can help your home’s value when you resell your home, and it’s one of the best ways to showcase your treasured bottles of wine. You can add a wine cellar anywhere in your home — all you have to do is to find an available space where you can store your collection. You’d be surprised at what you can do with those spaces. Here are a few ideas:
Dining Room Wine Displays
What better place to show off your wine collection than in the place where you wine and dine? If you want to enjoy those lovely lunches and dinners with family and friends surrounded by wine, then a dining room wine display is perfect. Wine racks built into your dining area make a great conversation piece, not to mention make your wine bottles very accessible. You don’t want to run out of wine at the dinner table of course, but in case you do, you don’t have to run to the basement or wine room on the other side of your house to get another bottle. Whether your wines are enclosed in a glass wine cabinet or openly displayed in individual wine storage racks, dining wine displays are a great addition to your home.
Ahh, closet wine cellars. Space constraints shouldn’t stop you from building your very own space for wine, and closets transformed into wine rooms prove that. As long as you have an excellent designer who can maximize your closet space, a proper refrigeration system in place and nice, minimal lighting, you’re good to go. As for the wine racks, why, you can enjoy the wine rack styles and wood types you see in larger wine rooms too. Just remember, space is no reason NOT to build a wine cellar. No matter how small your space for your wine bottles, wine cellar designers can custom build a perfect closet wine cellar for you.
Tasting Rooms and Home Bars
So you love those fabulous wine displays in your favorite bars and restaurants? Well the good news is, you can build one in your own home. Have fun playing around with the design, because you can incorporate several wine room elements when you build a home bar. In fact, what we love about tasting rooms and home bars is that you can combine all the great elements of great wine rooms such as individual storage racks and bulk storage bins, mesh cabinets, elegant archways with a hanging wine glass rack and shiny, functional table tops. Having your very own tasting room and/or home bar will surely make your wine tasting experience and bonding moments with family and friends more memorable.
