Is your budget a little too tight for a formal wine cellar project? Don’t lose hope! You can still bring to life that wine cellar of your dreams. All you need to do is expand your imagination and rely on some DIY racking ideas. Putting together a racking assembly is not rocket science. Even if you’re a newbie, the right products and tools can give you the desired results. So don’t fret over those extra dollars! Instead, get inspired by these smart DIY racking ideas:
Dining Room Wine Displays
The dining room is one of those areas in the house that can be conveniently transformed into a wine storage space for your collection. For example, the cabinets storing dining ware sets can be converted so a portion of the same can host the wine bottles. If there is an empty wall space, you can have a compact wine cellar built into it. In the alternative, you can also choose to have racks wall-mounted onto the said space. Assembling and installing the racks can be done DIY, especially if you’re planning to wall-mount them.
Wine Cellar Closet Transformations
This is another racking concept that has become very popular in the recent years. A wine cellar closet can work in any residential setting. But it works especially well with living spaces with limited space. The great thing about a wine cellar closet transformation is that you can definitely go full DIY with it. All you need is to decide on an empty or unused space in your home that you’d want to convert into wine storage. Some of the more common ones are the coat closet, broom or shoe closet, or the pantry. But we’ve also had clients who converted an office space and even an extra bathroom. Once the space is decided, you can decide on your racking units and other accessories. Our small wine racks collection has lots of styles that will work very well with wine cellar closets.
Under Stairwell Transformations
More often than not, people love to stash their junk in that little area under the stairs. But don’t be so quick as to take that space for granted! With a bit of ingenuity and hard work, you can turn that under stairwell space into a pretty awesome wine storage for your collection. More than just a few of our clients have done this. Some have taken the professional route and had their cellars customized by design professionals. But others took the DIY route with equally satisfying results.
