A wine rack must first of all fulfill its function well, but it should also be aesthetic and fit into the interior design. In addition, it's good if it doesn't cost too much and is easy to keep clean. So what kind of stand to choose?
Wine rack space
Until now, wine racks used to occupy a place in the kitchen, but nowadays many people also put them in the living room or cellar. In the latter case we only have to remember that the stand is made of a material resistant to moisture and cold. We often worry that an additional piece of furniture in the form of a stand will take up unnecessary space. However, it does not have to be like this, because a cabinet or space above the worktop or other furniture can be used for a stand in a simple way.
We also have a choice of hanging wine racks, which are very often made of beautiful wood and metal. There is also a cabinet stand that can be mounted or freestanding. More and more people also choose a very practical solution, which is to combine a wine rack and glasses. And if the rack is to be a gift for a person close to us, we can also look for personalized wine racks on which you can even engrave the names of the owners.
Modern or classic wine rack?
At present, there are many different models of wine racks, which are made of different materials. When choosing such equipment, we must first of all take into account the fact that its style matches the decor of a particular interior. When you buy a stand made of light wood, it will have a more modern style, while carved, dark wood will work well in classic rooms. It is worth buying a wine rack made of solid oak, larch, ash or beech. Very popular today are also metal wine racks, which can be made of steel or aluminum. They can take very different shapes, which will work well in both modern and classic interiors. Wine racks made of plastic are usually mainly portable equipment, which can be placed in the kitchen or living room. More and more often, especially in modern interiors, glass stands are also used, which can be combined with other materials. Style matching the decor of the whole interior is not the only aspect we should pay attention to when choosing a wine rack. Let's also remember about its colour. Although in shops you can usually find products in natural colours of wood, metal or just black, more and more often there are also products in slightly more interesting colours.
In addition, when buying a wine rack, it is worth checking out the opinions about a specific model in the network. Thanks to this, we will find out whether its quality is really good, as a result of which it will serve us for a long time.
