How You Can Incorporate Wine Racks Into Your Design Without Wasting Space

Whether you’re a wine connaisseur or not, it’s always nice to have a bottle or two in the house. But where do you keep them? Well obviously a wine rack would surely be helpful. Lots of people seem to think that a wine rack is just an accessory and that it takes up space that can be used for something else. But there are ways in which you can incorporate wine racks into your interior design without wasting any space.

Depending on where you want to store and display the wine bottles, you can figure out solutions. For example, if you want to have the bottles in the kitchen, then take a look around and see where you could spare some space.

Kitchen backsplash wine storage

For example, maybe you have some room in the corner or maybe you’re not using all the space available in your kitchen island. The cabinets are also an option. Maybe there’s some space there or maybe you can squeeze a vertical drawer somewhere.

Another option is to store the bottles in the dining since you’ll most likely be using them there. Here things are not that simple but there are still lots of options.

You could have a wall-mounted wine rack on one of the walls. There are lots of designs which take up very little space and which also look great. If the dining room is out of the question as well, then turn your attention to other spaces. Don’t overlook anything. You’ll definitely find a solution so just be creative and open-minded.
