Wall-mounted wine racks are more than just wine storage -- they’re also part of your home’s decor. They can be a stylish feature without taking up any valuable floor or countertop space. Wall wine racks are especially useful if space is at a premium in your home or apartment.
Choosing a Wine Rack
Consider the following features when choosing a hanging wine rack: ● Capacity.
Most wall-mounted racks are designed to store 4 to 10 bottles. Any more than that can prove to be too much weight for a wall-mounted rack. For storing more than 15 bottles, consider a floor or countertop wine storage rack.
Some hanging racks can go underneath cabinets or inside cabinet doors. This is a great option to keep bottles out of sight in a cool, dark place.
● Material and Design.
Wall-mounted racks double as art in your dining room, kitchen or study. The material and design should match your personal style and decor. For a rustic home, choose a wooden wine rack
with metal accents. Or select an ornate wrought iron wine rack to make a statement in a room with lots of other artwork.
Choose a wine glass storage
rack to go with your wall-mounted wine rack.
For the optimal wine bottle storage, hang your wine rack away from heat sources and light. This will help keep your reds and whites tasting their best.
Mounting Your Wine Rack
Follow the manufacturer’s directions carefully when mounting your rack. Mount it to a stud if possible, or use reinforced drywall anchors. Pay close attention to the recommended weight limit to avoid the risk of it falling. Keep in mind that a small wine rack is best for wall display. Choose one with an upper shelf to display glasses or home decor accents.
