If you fancy yourself a wine aficionado, there are few bigger luxuries than having built-in wine storage in your kitchen. It offers instant access to your favorite vintages, makes entertaining a cinch, and ensures your wine is properly stored at the right temperature and in the proper horizontal position.
If you’re redesigning your kitchen and are in need of inspiration for your wine storage, here are a few ideas we love.
Short on space? A compact-size wine refrigerator makes it easy (and efficient!) to keep favorite bottles at hand. For a more high-end look, build it into your cabinetry design, like in the kitchen below.
A wine refrigerator doesn’t have to throw off the design of a sleek, contemporary space. Luxury cabinet brands like Leicht make custom-fit panels to disguise appliances, including wine storage,
Have room to spare? Create a wet bar area in the kitchen (preferably en route to dining or entertaining spaces) complete with a wine refrigerator or rack, a kitchen sink, and storage for glassware and bar tools.
If you prefer red wine that don’t need to be chilled, you have a large wine cellar elsewhere in your home, or you’d simply rather not install wine refrigerator in the kitchen, incorporate a built-in wine rack instead.
