Wine Cellar Inspirations: Easy, Breezy Wine Storage At Home

March 22nd, 2017

So you don’t have the time, space, or (more often than not!), the budget for a formal wine cellar in your home. Details, details! You can still come up with a suitable storage for your wine bottles. If you guys can recall, we talked about “compact and clever” wine storage last week. Today, we’re going to share some concepts on an even smaller scale: easy, breezy wine storage at home:

In your library or home office…

Wine racks in your library or home office

You will be pleasantly surprised at how convenient a bottle storage space your library or home office can make. All you need to do is do a bit of clean-up by removing old, and/or unwanted books and other bric-a-bracs in the bookshelves or cabinets. Then purchase some small wine racks or if you want, some glassware storage as well and install them in the now empty spaces. Now you can have a glass of wine or two while at just an arm’s reach while reading a good book or while working from home.

In empty corner/s in your wall…

When space becomes an issue in properly storing your bottles, it’s time to discover the beauty of wall-mounted wine racks. These days, this type of racking unit comes in so many styles, including wine rails and pegs. Because they’re wall-mounted, they can be put up anywhere in your home, particularly those empty corners or stretches of space in the walls. Here’s a fun tip: mount them next to your television or home entertainment set-up if you have one. That way you get to really completely unwind, especially on weekends.

Under kitchen benches and islands…

Customizing your furniture to accommodate your wine bottles is one of the best ways to keep them safe and comfy while working around space issues. One of our favorites is this awesome DIY from a client who customized their kitchen window seat by using small wine racks as the base. Of course, you can also do the same with your kitchen islands, tabletops and countertops, and other similar furniture.

Do you have other easy, breezy wine storage concepts to share? We’d love to hear them! ^_^
