Factors to Consider When Buying a Wine Rack
There aren’t too many different factors to consider in your search, but each of the four main considerations you should make are important to identifying the wine rack that works best for your needs.
1. Size and Capacity
When choosing a wine rack, it is very important to think about its capacity and how much space it will occupy.
Smaller wine racks that store between four and sixteen bottles are more flexible and can be hung on your wall or ceiling easily.
If you have a large collection or aim to really grow your collection, custom wine racks or built-in wine cabinets are better suited to your needs.
You also need to consider the type of bottle you're packing into the rack. A regular size bottle holds 750 ml of wine and is 11”-13” high by 2”-4” wide, however, if you like to get magnum-sized bottles, then you’ll need a wine rack that can hold the various shapes and sizes.
2. Styles and Looks
For many buyers, the design of a wine rack might be the most important consideration, especially for wall decoration. Why not buy something that turns your wine bottles into art? You can find colorful wine racks, ones with a modern design, ones that provide a rustic look, and many that provide a touch of elegance.

The two most common materials used to make wine racks are wood and metal. Wood racks have a more traditional appearance and usually come in earthy colors that many people find appealing. Metal racks are usually black, silver or gold, but can also be found in other colors. Many of the racks that have a more modern or industrial look come in metal.
There is no definitive answer as to which type of rack is better. It mostly comes down to your personal preference and which one looks better in the space where you plan to put your wine rack.
For many shoppers, this will be one of the most common considerations. Large, high-capacity wine racks can become quite expensive – costing over $1000 in some cases. Small wine racks with a more simplistic design, on the other hand, can cost as little as $10.
When opting for a hanging or wall-mounted wine rack, it may be worth spending a bit more on really good quality ones to minimize the risk of your nice wines being destroyed if the rack falls.
