Metal wine racks aren’t that cookie-cutter as some people make them out to be. There are those who tend to shy away from metal wine racks thinking they can’t do much design-wise. But that’s definitely not the case! Here are some inspirational tips to help you style yours:

Discover metal wine racks

Discover racking styles for various storage needs…

There are actually quite a number of designs you can explore for your metal racking units. Here at WCI in particular, we carry an assortment of options. Take for example our WineZone Wine Shelf system. This is probably our most versatile line. The shelves can store not just wine bottles, but a variety of other items as well, including glassware and olive oils. You can achieve this by integrating a black melamine shelf for other merchandising or storage options. Then there’s our Vintage View Series which has two configurations. You can either wall-mount the racks or display them in a floor-to-ceiling fashion. WCI also carries the STACT Aluminum Racks that are basically wall-mounted units. The panels, aluminum bottle supports, and wall brackets work together to create modern and sophisticated layout.

Combine metal wine racks with other elements…

One of the strongest features of metal racking is it’s compatibility with a lot of other material. A classic example is a glass-enclosed wine cellar. For this type of wine cellar, metal racking units come highly recommended. They will showcase one’s collection beautifully, especially if you throw in lighting accessories as well. Metal wine racks also work extremely well with their wood counterparts. In fact, a wood and metal combo brings a unique charm to any wine cellar project. We have lots of great examples of these in our photo gallery so do check them out for inspiration!

When there is room for customizing, go for it…

Remember that there will always be room to customize. Just because these are metal racking units doesn’t mean you’re without any options. You can actually choose different finishes or if not, accessorize your racks to give them more character. Our STACT Aluminum Racks are probably the best examples for this. The panels come in ten different finishes, including some really vibrant shades like Electric Orange and Citrus Green. For those that cannot be customized with finishes, you can accentuate the racks instead. Custom lighting is one of the most popular ways of enhancing them. Another is by wall-mounting the racks into an artistically designed wall or surface. ^_^
