Have a great passion for wine but very little room to display your wine bottles? That is not a problem at all. Many people can create a perfect custom wine cellar despite their limited space and budget. The following are great guidelines for turning the small space you have into a beautiful wine storage space.
How big should your cellar be?
Your cellar can be as big or as small as you like. Basements, closets, vacant rooms, or spaces under stairs are excellent residential warehouses. Simplicity will help maximize the small space you have. You can choose small metal wine racks that fits your limited space while stylishly displaying wine bottles. A larger wine storage space will allow you to store more bottles of wine, but it is not always inexpensive. On the other hand, having a reduced space is an advantage in terms of construction cost.
Which wine rack design should I choose?
There are different ways to display your wine bottles that focus on elegance, easy access, space efficiency, or personal satisfaction. Cost, size, and design will play a critical role in your choice. There are a variety of wine racks and accessories to choose from, such as:
- Individual bottle storage shelves
- Curved corner units
- Tasting tables
- Diamond bins
- Shelves for containers/boxes
- Champagne / magnum racks
- Storage of divided bottles
- Waterfall screen
- Quarter turn display
Wine bottles vary in sizes and shapes, so you should choose a wine rack system that best suits your wine bottles. The diamond container design is popular with people who have a small wine cellar because it allows them to store multiple single-size bottles of wine in each container, thus maximizing their space.
Another benefit is that diamond containers can be created using a lattice design rather than solid wood. This is not only inexpensive, but it also aids in proper air circulation in and around the bottles.
