Wine Cellar Inspirations: Tips In Outfitting Small Spaces

December 4th, 2019

One of the things we like about small spaces is that you can get really creative with them. Some of our most unique projects are transformations of smaller spaces. It’s pretty amazing what ingenuity can yield and we’d love to share some of those concepts with you.

When working with compact wine cellar projects, one of the things you need to consider are the angles and corners. They might seem like wasted space, but with the right racking units, you can properly maximize them. We recommend outfitting your cellar with Curved Corner Racks or 90 Degree Angled Racks to achieve this. You can go with either custom units or select from our wine rack kits, such as Vintner, which carries these curved corner racking options.

2. Try some shallow-depth racking

Do not be afraid to venture into different racking styles when outfitting a compact wine storage space. You do not need to stick to standard-sized racks all the time. Other styles may prove more space-efficient, such as shallow-depth wine racks. These are racks manufactured with shorter depth compared to standard units. When bottles are stored on these racks, you’ll notice that the necks will slightly stick out. That actually makes for a really attractive display as well. WCI carries this style of racking with our WineMaker Series and Traditional Series wine rack kits. You will be surprised at the bottle storage capacity these shorter depth racks can offer.

Another type of racking that will can work wonders on compact spaces is the “small wine rack.” Here at WCI, we actually have several options, such as our Mini Stacks, Curvy Cubes, and our Wall Mount Wine Racks. The last option is easily the most popular. Wall mount units can come in either wood or metal materials. Recently, our metal wine racking products, particularly the wall-mount ones, have really grown in popularity. Vintage View is, of course, one of our oldest and highly recommended products. But we also introduced some recent additions that are both space-efficient and super attractive. The Revue and Ultra Wine Racks collections are some of them. These wall-mount units are easy to install and you’ll have tons of fun creating eye-catching arrangements with them. ^_^
