Decorative Wine Wall Racks: for Lovers of Wine & Style
By Alyssa Davis
Lovers of wine and lovers of style have found the perfect decorative accessory in wall mounted wine racks. Designed to hold bottles of wine horizontally, so that the cork is always in contact with the wine, wine racks will keep corks from drying out prematurely, which can impact the flavor, clarity and freshness of wine.
Whether you love wine, interior decorating with contemporary metal wall art, or both, you will find the perfect location to display a wall mounted wine rack in your home. Ideal for the wine enthusiast with a wine cellar or home bar, wall mounted wall racks are equally at home in the kitchen, dining room or any place in the home where friends gather.
Here are some ideas on how to accent your home with charming and functional wine wall racks.
Modern California Bungalow
Create a focal point in a modern dining room with the addition of a black wrought iron wine wall rack.
A mirrored tray with a clear glass decanter and wine glasses is an option for accessorizing the top of the server. A large mirror on an opposite wall will make the space feel bigger, brighter and even more inviting.
Tuscan Style Kitchen
Sunny shades of the Italian countryside and rolling hills of Tuscany inspire a kitchen drenched in shades of sienna and burgundy, with rich wood cabinetry and bright ceramic wall tiles depicting fruit and vegetables.
Other Tips & Decorating Ideas
· Make the ends or backs of kitchen cabinets more interesting and functional by hanging wall mounted wine racks on them. If the cabinet surface is not strong enough to support the weight of the rack and bottles, measure for the location of screws and install two wood blocks inside the cabinet first.
· Highlight a home entertainment or media room with the addition of a wall mounted wine rack behind the bar. Add grapevine roping, clusters of artificial grapes and small white lights to create the ambiance of a wine cellar.
· When choosing a location for your wall mounted wine rack, make sure that it is an area that is free of natural sunlight. Sunlight can increase the temperature of the wine, affecting its freshness and drinkability.
· Any style kitchen, even a small galley, can have improved storage options with the inclusion of a wall mounted wine rack which does not take up counter or floor space. Styles that range from minimalist to ornate can complement any decorative scheme.
