Tips On Choosing a Wine Rack

If you love wine or merely enjoy a glass or two on occasion a great wine rack where you can store your collection regardless of the size. Not only are wine racks functional but nowadays a wine rack is considered a great option in home decor. In order to determine the wine rack that would best suit your home we will look over the various options. 

The size of your wine collection is the first thing you should consider. If you tend to only store a few bottles at one time then maybe a tabletop rack is what would work best for you. If however you have quite a large collection then there are wine racks available that can store even thousands of your bottles at one time. You can also consider if having more than one wine rack would make sense, this would depend on your decor and your collection. 


Another factor that comes into play is your personal style and decorating preferences. Do you want your wine rack mounted on the wall? Would you prefer a discreet corner wine rack? Maybe a stylish centerpiece wine rack will suit your decor? There are plenty of options when it comes to wine racks it is up to you to consider functionality and form. 

The style and texture of your decor should also be taken into consideration. Id your decor minimalist, rustic, modern or country? You will be pleased to know that wine racks come in all sorts of compositions. Would a sleek metal brushed wine rack fit in with your home decor or would a more rustic wooden rack work? The choice is yours. Your wine rack should not only compliment your home but also express your personal style. 

Our personal preference would be a wine rack that not only will store the wine bottles but will also display and store various wine related items. I like to call it a “wine center”, a focal point so to speak where all our wine accessories and wine can be displayed in one spot. There are many stylish options on the market, options that offer plenty of storage as well as display for wine accessories, wine books, wine art and of course wine glasses. 

The easiest type of wine rack that matches just about any home decor is of course wooden wine racks, however the choice is entirely yours to make. Wine racks with a handsome, aged wood look are what we prefer due to the vibe associated with enjoying and drinking that it lets off. 

Being as there are many options when it comes to the size and price of wine racks having more than one wine rack is definitely an option. We have a wine rack that is small and reserved for certain specialty wines, we also have a rack designates to the purchases made during our travels around U.S. wine trails and part of our living room decor is our wine center piece where everything else is kept. 


There are so many options when it comes to style, size and price. When it comes to choosing your wine rack make sure you have a little fun much like you do when choosing your wines. Enjoyment and wine go hand in hand and not only will a wine rack add to your style and decor but also to your wine enjoyment so have fun.
