Wine enthusiasts may want a wine rack to display their collection. Wooden wine racks are elegant and versatile enough to fit in with a variety of decorating schemes and types of rooms. However, you might wonder how to best choose the right wine rack for your home. Here are a few things to ask yourself.
What is your budget?
The good news is that you can find a wine rack for any budget. Many wine racks are reasonably priced and under $100.
What color do you want your wine rack to be?
Some companies, such as Wood Things, sell wine racks that you can request to have either in a natural color or stained. When you choose a color, think carefully about the room you are going to put the wine rack in and how it will match the rest of the decor. Another option might be to choose a neutral color so that you can move it to different rooms or change the decor of the room it is in.
How many bottles of wine do you need to store at a time?
You can buy larger or smaller wine racks or multiple racks if you find a design you particularly like that is on the small side. Another option is to have a wine rack in the main area where you and your guests tend to congregate with a few bottles and a separate wine rack elsewhere that holds more bottles.
Where will your wine rack go?
If you are short on space, you might consider a wine rack that can double as another piece of furniture such as an end table. If you have a lot of space, you might be able to choose from a broader selection.
Do you want a space to store wine glasses as well?
Some wine racks include these and it can be a great feature. All too often, wine glasses end up shoved in the back of a cabinet with other glasses and are more easily broken or forgotten.
Collecting wine can be a fun hobby, and you can start with just a few bottles at a time. Having the wine rack on which to display those bottles will contribute to your enjoyment of this new pastime.
