Creative Wine Racking 101
If you and your significant other have talked about creating your own wine cellar, why wait? Though Vintage Cellars’ wine racks are designed by experts, they can be assembled by novices in little time. This means, with any of the Vintage Cellars wine racking kits, you’re destined for success! Racks are designed to last a lifetime, and you can select just the right colors to match your decor. Don’t be afraid to get creative! Why, there’s no reason why you couldn’t create a wine labyrinth if you so chose!
Wine areas need not be stagnant spaces, either; you can mix and match styles of design to give a single room different atmospheres in different sections. For instance, a formal wall containing Winemaker 2 Column Open Diamond Cubes can be contrasted by an opposing lighter, playful wall featuring black metal lattice wine racks. An elegant diamond bin wine rack below a classic archway can be countered by a section of modern wine racking units, like the VintageView 3′ wine racks, and so on. You can even use different designs to house different wines: dark, rustic ones for reds, and lighter ones for whites! With so many types of wine racks to choose from, you’re limited only by your imagination.
If the above projects seem too ambitious, here’s an easy-yet-creative idea that is sure to attract attention: spell out a marriage proposal, or make an announcement with wine bottles. If the bottles are racked, you can easily spell words and messages by placing red wines, strategically, amidst a “neutral” backdrop of whites. You can even create simple images, similar to popular ASCII art we sometimes see on our friends’ Facebook posts. Because this takes a little time and planning, your message will be all the more memorable (However, if your partner is one of the many wine lovers who organizes their collection obsessively, think twice before moving their collection around. And keep in mind that unnecessary movement isn’t a great thing for stored bottles–this plan might be best executed with some of the less-collectible bottles in the cellar!).
Have fun getting those creative juices flowing!
