How to Integrate Wine Storage to Your Kitchen Design

If you’re looking for some authentic and classical kitchen design theme, then you might want to consider using wine bottles. Fragile as they are, it’s possible for them to serve another purpose by integrating them into your existing storage area. So, it’s time for you to get those old wine bottles you collected for years, and let’s get started!

Important Reminders

Since wine bottles aren’t your regular kitchen decorations, here are the reminders that you need to take into consideration before starting:

  • Avoid wine bottles from being exposed to direct sunlight. Wine can taste differently based on how much exposure it received from natural light, so make sure that you put them in dark, and shaded areas.
  • Keep the wine bottles away from any sources of heat. Several kitchen appliances that can emit heat (fridge, stove, toaster, etc.) can affect the wine’s quality.
  • Always remember to put the wine bottles in a horizontal position to prevent the cork from drying out.

It is important that your kitchen can provide an environment that will be ideal for the wine bottles in retaining their quality.

Now, here are some of the unique ways of adding wine storage into your kitchen design!

Wine Island

Known for enhancing the kitchen’s functionality and overall appearance, you can further highlight the beauty of your kitchen island by stuffing it with deep, square compartments. This wine storage solution can be customized to provide slots to your wine bottles!

You can store as many wine bottles as you want, depending on the number of compartments you have. If you’re short on storage, you can limit the number of wine bottles to be put on the compartments so that you can reserve the vacant ones for your other kitchen items.

Wine Coolers

Wine coolers are designed for maintaining the quality of wine and provide ease of access at the same time. Similar to other kitchen units, wine coolers can be customized to fit your needs. For example, you can purchase freestanding wine coolers and have them mounted between the wall cabinets.

Wine on Open Shelves

Open shelving comes with a lot of benefits, with one of it giving an opportunity to test your decorating abilities. Your wine collection will surely shine and become your kitchen’s focal point if you will place them right on the open shelves. And because they often provide more storage than your regular cupboards, you can also add other potential decorations that will look good with your wine bottles such as wine glasses.

Integrating Wine Bottles to the Kitchen Layout

Finding the best location to exhibit your wine collection can be tough, especially if you don’t have a wine cooler and a dedicated open shelf. However, you can still provide your wine bottles a special place by fitting a narrow grid of compartments into any compatible area in your current kitchen layout. It can be a row of about five compartments as large as a kitchen drawer, which you can fit basically every nooks and cranny that you can find.
