Transform Your Wine Room Using Wine Cellar Accessories

Wine cellar accessories are wonderful additions to any wine room both for their functionality and added detail to the cellar’s interior design. Our favorite accessories include chillers and coolers, decorative metal or wooden wine racks, wine holders, corkscrews and bottle openers, and wine bar coding system, among others.

Wine coolers and wine chillers are important especially when you have a wine counter or mini bar inside the cellar. These are used for pre-cooling or pre-chilling of drinks to prepare it for serving. Wine chillers and coolers vary in sizes. If wines are served for commercial purposes, bigger capacity maybe needed.

12 Bottle Wine RackFree standing or wall mounted wine racks and holders can also be very decorative, at the same time, functional. It can hold several bottles for display on top of the bar counter. There are varieties of wonderful designs for wine racks available in the market. One can even choose to have a single-bottle capacity arched wine rack to display cherished or valuable wine collection.

Corkscrews and bottle openers are essentials in wine rooms. There are decorative corkers and openers which you can playfully have for fun and added style. These types of decorative wine accessories are perfect for special occasions, parties and other important occasions.

The wine bar coding system is also a practical thing to have to track down additional or consumed wine bottles. This is especially helpful for inventory purposes in commercial wine cellars. But collectors can also adopt this system. The bar coding system is very simple to use. The barcode tags can be personalized. Collectors can add more information on the tags. Personalized quotes or whatever they want to label on their collections can also be used.

Wine cellars must have these accessories for easy tracking of the wine collection, systematic serving and added magnificence of the room.

Creating Custom Wine Racks for Your Home

Wood Wine RacksUnknown to some, traveling can cause their wine collection to grow. Shocking, I know! When wine lovers travel to renowned areas that are known for their wine, they tend to come home with wine cases in tow. These wines are wonderful reminders of your memorable trips. Some tend to buy it as a gift for someone or for their wine collection in their homes. As the collection keeps growing, the need for custom wine cellars in their homes becomes inevitable. Wine racks end up as a necessity to keep their precious wines.

Wine bottles themselves are elegant and attractive to look at, and the right wine rack can really add beauty to the wine bottles as they await their opening day. You can easily store or display several bottles in wine racks placed in the kitchen pantry, fixed on the living room wall, positioned on the kitchen countertop or table, or arranged in the basement turned into a wine room. To sum up, wine racks are very versatile and helpful. Indeed, they are a unique solution to accommodate all your wines anywhere around the house.

Most of the prefabricated wine racks are made from hardwoods like cedar, fir and pine. Some of the finest home wine holder designs are made from metals. Whichever you opt, remember that preserving the wine itself needs proper care through proper handling of the bottles. Wine bottles must be stored in a durable and elevated section situated in a dry and cool location.

Nowadays, more people are into efficiently using every home living space. By having an affordable and efficient wine rack at home, making much of the space in the cellar is not a problem. You can even create an on-the-spot cellar space in the pantry, if you want to. So, if you’re searching for a safe and durable storage or display unit for your collection, the home wine racking system can greatly help you. Both the beginner and serious wine connoisseurs can make use of such system.

Wine racks for your homes allow you to organize your wine collection and keep it safe all year round. Theses racks come in a range of sizes depending on your style. You can also choose from freestanding, wall mounted or table top wine racks. You need to consider these, when choosing the type of wine rack to purchase.

Many people choose to use wood wine racks because these are relatively cheap, easy to assemble and best for a large collection of wine. Wood is hardy and durable. Some of the wooden wine racks are stackable, so it can grow along with your collection. In addition, a wooden home wine rack can be painted or stained to modify or customize it to match and blend with your existing home fixtures and decor.

Presentation or artistic display is somewhat important element in wine cellars. A good metal wine rack design adds artistic element combined with functionality. Some wine holders have circles or spiraling tree sculpture instead of the usual lined-up racking systems. Using a metal wine rack allows the wine connoisseur to add artwork and fashion while wooden racks are built for functionality. It is important that you buy one that is pre-assembled when purchasing wrought iron wine racks. Wrought iron wine racks are made to last. Stainless steel wine racks are more moderately priced than wrought iron wine racks, although the latter have become very trendy as well.

Whichever type of wine rack you will choose for your wine cellar, make sure you buy the best by considering not only the quality and its design but also your personal preference. That will be the most important consideration since your taste will determine your desire to keep the wine racks in your wine cellars.
