Types of Wine Cabinets


Many people enjoy a glass of wine with dinner or for entertaining while other people are serious wine collectors or connoisseurs. Regardless, whether keeping one or two bottles of wine on hand or multiple bottles, a wine cabinet is needed to store the wine properly. Because of this, you will find a number of different styles, perfect to match the style or décor of your room. In this article, we will provide you with some of the more popular options to help get you started.

Just as with other types of kitchen and dining room furniture, wine cabinets are available in many different colors, materials, styles, sizes, and price ranges, making it possible for anyone who enjoys wine to store it the right way. Wine cabinets will ensure the bottles lay on their side, which keeps the cork moist and easy to open. In addition, wine cabinets protect the wine bottles from damage or breakage.

? Traditional - Many of the traditional wine cabinets are made from mahogany or cherry and in the Queen Anne style. This style includes some ornate detailing, traditional style hardware, carved legs, and depending on the style chosen, the cabinet may or may not have a door front.

? Spanish - Spanish style wine cabinets are simplistic yet attractive. Many of these cabinets will have a door front with open shelving below for added storage or display. The Spanish style wine cabinet comes in a number of sizes (up to 21 bottle capacity), and features utility drawers with beautiful pulls. You will even find this style offering a place behind the doors to hang wine glasses, making it convenient and functional.

? Transitional - For this style of wine cabinet, wood is usually walnut, pine, or oak. With a place for hanging stemware above, a nice tabletop for corking and serving, and plenty of storage below for wine, this is a favorite for any style kitchen or dining room.

? Contemporary - Although you will find a number of styles that fit in with modern décor, many of these wine cabinets are constructed from wrought iron or some other type of metal coupled with glass and marble. One popular choice features an arched top, glass shelving, area for storing the wine bottles, and a locking door that allows you to peer in while keeping the wine protected.

With prices of wine cabinets ranging from $150 to thousands of dollars, you have a wide range of choices. By using an actual cabinet for your wine, not only will it keep better and thereby taste better but the various bottles can be beautifully displayed. Remember, wine cabinets come in numerous sizes so wine can be stored on top of a buffet or sideboard, or in an actual cabinet as a stand-alone piece of furniture.
