Discovering the Wine Bottle Waterfall…

What better racking to accommodate uneven spaces than the Wine Bottle Waterfall? It is configured in such a way that the individual bottle storage goes down in a cascading fashion. When you stack the units together, this allows you to have your racking assembly in variable height configurations. It’s a terrific solution for wine storage beneath the stairs. In addition, you get to display your wine bottles in an eye-catching fashion. The Wine Bottle Waterfall is available with WCI’s wine rack kits, like the Vintner and Designer Series.

Metal wine racks for building storage under the stairs

Small wine racks, wine pegs and rails…

Lack of adequate space is almost always one of the main issues with under stairwell transformations. But this is actually where the fun is! Getting creating with your racking arrangement will lead to fulfilling results. So it’s time to expand your racking options and dig deeper into the details. Small wine racks come highly recommended for this kind of wine cellar project. Wall-mount metal racking is also a popular choice since it is very space-efficient. But another favorite of ours are the wine pegs and wine rails. They can be easily mounted anywhere and can really help maximize bottle storage capacity. ^_^
