When you order a custom wine rack system, make sure the components are modular. That is, they work together or separately, so you can add on other pieces as your cellar grows. If your components are all separate, you may find that when you need to add another, you can't find just the right size, wood, or stain match. If that happens your wine cellar won't look as pulled together as it could. Many companies will build a custom wine rack, but watch for quality in the construction, the right woods that will stand up to wear, and fine details, such as moldings, over-sized bottle storage, and extra stabilization to hold heavy weights. Your custom wine rack should stand up to years of use if you choose wisely.
