Should you decide to build your own wine rack, there are a few factors to keep in mind:
Make sure your wine bottles will be stored horizontally. This will keep the wine in contact with the cork and keep in from drying out and allowing oxygen to enter the bottle.
Measure each aspect of your custom wine rack to be sure it can accommodate the size of the bottles currently in your collection as well as any future bottles you might purchase.
Be creative with the design of your custom wine rack. Make sure it fits the decor of the room, however, do not be afraid to use color and incorporate art elements. Flirt with different types of wood ranging from mahogany to beechwood or look at a wrought iron design.
If you are taking this on as a do-it-yourself project, make sure you understand how to build a custom wine rack. This is where a wine rack kit will come in handy. It will explain dimensions, measurements and give suggestions on materials and the type of custom rack you should build to fit the space.
