Affordable Modular Wine Racks for the Savvy Wine Collectors
Wine racks provide an efficient storage and display solution for a large or small collection of wines. Designs and configurations for wine storage racks vary greatly. There are wine racking solutions that can be placed on kitchen countertops, and/or stacked on top of each other, while others are mounted on walls or hung on ceilings.
Here at Arctic Metalworks, we are not just an experts in wine cellar refrigeration, we also offer and install different types of modular wine racks, to accommodate various wine storage needs. We have Kesisck modular wine racks, tabletop modular wine racks, and wall mounted modular wine racks.
Discussed below are the design features of these types of modular wine racks. But first, let us discuss the differences between the three most common types of wine racking systems: custom wine racks, kit wine racks, and modular wine racks.
What are the Differences Between Custom Wine Racks, Kit Wine Racks and Modular Wine Racks?
Custom wine racks come in a range of style, depth, height, and weight options. Custom wine racks are made to fit the contours of a wine room. Various styles of custom wine racks can be combined to maximize a storage area; they can also be modified or adjusted to the constraints of a small wine storage space.
Unlike their pre-designed counterparts, custom wine racks are specially constructed and finished to match the design, theme, and unique layout of a wine room. Although these wine racking solutions are expensive, they never fail to create a distinct look within a wine cellar.
Kit wine racks, or wine rack kits, are wine racks that have specific sizes, depths, and designs. They are available in pre-designed units, but they can be modified by adding extenders, fillers, moldings, or a top shelf, in order to give them a “custom” look.
Examples of kit wine racks are single bottle, double deep, quarter round, lattice, diamond, x bins, and rectangular bins.
What are Modular Wine Racks?
Modular wine racks are another wine storage and display option, for serious wine collectors on a budget. These affordable wine racks are available in pre-designed units, or sections that provide flexibility in installation options.
The individual sections may come in one component, or a combination of various racking components, that can accommodate a range of storage needs and design preferences.
Design Specifications of Modular Wine Racks
There are modular wine cellar racks that are made up of prefabricated components and pre-sized units, that require little or no assembly. As one grows their wine collection, they can expand their modular wine cellar racks by adding more sections to the racking system.
Additional modular wine rack pieces can be stacked on top of each other or connected horizontally, depending on the size and layout of a room or wine storage space.
Modular wine storage systems are affordable wine racks that provide an efficient storage and display solution for wines, and at the same time complement any existing home décor. Modular units for wine cellars are constructed from different materials, such as wood, metal or acrylic.
They come in a wide array of styles and configurations, that allow wine collectors to create an elegant wine bottle presentation with optimum storage capacity.
Modular wine cellar racks are available in traditional and contemporary designs. They can be installed in any available space in a home, such as the living room, or in a residential wine room. There are modular wine racking solutions that provide additional features, including back options and side panels, LED lighting options, and a lacquer finish.
For wood based modular wine racks, choose a line that is constructed from Sapele mahogany, which has an even deeper coloring than the Malaysian mahogany used in most wine rack kits. The rich brown color of Sapele mahogany gets darker with time, and applying a lacquer finish to the furniture will further enhance its aesthetic appeal.
When deciding on a lighting option, always go for pre-installed LED lighting system, to save money. Purchasing and installing the light system separately from the actual modular wine cellar rack components can be a costly endeavor.
What are Kessick Modular Wine Racks?
One of the most popular line of modular wine cellar racks are those designed and constructed by Kessick. These wine cellar racks are available in two styles: the Kessick Estate Series, and the Kessick Contemporary Series.
The Kessick Estate Series is a one wall rack design, that is made out of Sapele mahogany. It consists of a group of pre-fabricated wine rack components, such as individual bottle racking, high reveal display rows, X-bin storage, stemware racking, a mahogany tabletop, and rectangular bins.
Crown and base moldings are also provided, in order to bring a customized appearance to the modular racking solution.
The Kessick Contemporary Series is perfect for a modern-themed living space or wine storage room. It comes in 20 sleek-looking racking components that can be combined to create a visually appealing wine storage and display solution. To enhance the beauty of the modular series, various finishes are available, including brushed aluminum, black lacquer, and lacquered mahogany.
What are the Other Types of Modular Wine Racks?
There are other types of modular wine rack styles that can be assembled, in order to build a wine racking solution that fits any available space, as well as to promote efficient brand recognition. Affordable wine racks with modular features not only offer ease of growing a wine collection, but also allow wine collectors to organize and manage their wine collectibles in a stylish way.
Tabletop Modular Wine Racks
Tabletop modular wine racks are excellent for small scale storage. They can be placed on kitchen countertops, for ease of access to wine bottles when preparing a meal or entertaining a small group of people.
Wall Mounted Modular Wine Racks
Wall mounted modular wine racking solutions are ideal for a space-constrained layout. These units are mounted on the wall, which frees up floor space. Should they decide to grow their collection of wines, wine collectors can simply add more units to the existing frame.
