When you enjoy drinking wine, especially with family and friends, you may think about improving the experience inside your home. An excellent example is grabbing a drink after a long day at work or pouring a glass after enjoying dinner with your family. While you can enjoy a drink anywhere, you can remodel your kitchen to create the perfect space for drinking wine.
Making a bar in your kitchen will provide functionality in multiple ways. For instance, you can add a multi-layer island with one side functioning as the bar. This space is where you may serve your family and guests food and drinks, including wine. An island bar is an exciting addition because it brings drinking, eating, and socializing close to the cooking and prepping.
When you already have a kitchen island, you can work with remodelers to change or replace the existing design. Mood lighting, ample countertop space, and visible wine storage are features worth prioritizing to create a kitchen bar that impresses your family and guests.
Buying, collecting, and storing wine is a natural part of being a wine lover. So, you may love to pick up different wines when you travel and find deals at local stores. Family and friends might also gift wine regularly because they know your favorites or want you to try new ones. A smart move is to add wine racks around the kitchen that allow you to store all these wine bottles.
Wine racks are advantageous in that they are on display in the kitchen. This means you can choose a design and location that allows them to boost the room's visual appeal. A substantial benefit is that you can put them almost anywhere because they do not require electricity.
While wine racks are useful, you can also install a wine cooler for chilled storage. This storage solution is an excellent way to keep wine at a controlled temperature and humidity. So, while you may find it easier to store wine in a rack, you will appreciate having both features. You can use the cooler to store and chill wine you may plan on drinking soon with family and friends.
Another strategy is to store your most valuable wine in the cooler to maximize preservation. For instance, you may want to do everything you can to preserve the flavor of a rare and expensive wine over a local, affordable bottle you like to keep on hand at all times. Work on these projects to make your kitchen ideal for drinking and storing wine.
