The wine trend has been quite popular for some time now, and consumers are still highly interested in collecting wines for entertaining and personal enjoyment. However, finding storage solutions that work with decor and volume can be a very personal choice.
From whimsical one-bottle holders and expandable cellar systems to specialty coolers, consumers have a wide variety of choices available to fit their needs. And if customized storage is more desirable, there are DIY options using a number of materials available at most hardware and home improvement stores.
PVC pipes, copper plumbing or aluminum conduit, wood, slats, hooks, and even terra cotta pipes can be used in DIY wine storage systems. For some examples, check out Decoist http://www.decoist.com/2013-05-23/diy-wine-storage-ideas/.
Some of the off-the-shelf styles include:
- Whimsical—shoes, bears, cats and dogs, butlers, and many, many more designs abound in this category. This is a fun way for consumers to display that favorite bottle of wine as well as their quirky side.
