Choosing the Right Wood Wine Rack Plans for Your Home
When you’re trying to choose the right plans for your wine collection, it can be a tricky task to choose one that’s perfect for your home. Using wood wine rack kits and plans are a great alternative to buying something pre-made as you will be able to customize components to suit the surroundings of your home. Ideally you are looking for something that blends in with the room you are storing your wine in, something that compliments the natural aesthetics of the room. Of course you will also save money purchasing DIY plans but this is far from the only advantage if you are considering building a wine rack.
Below is a great video which while not directly speaking about wine rack plans covers some basic interior design principles that you should be aware of before choosing a wine storage rack for your home.
How to Choose
Choosing the right wine rack for your home is a difficult decision, there are so many options available and it isn’t an overly expensive project. When you build your own, you can give the wine storage rack itself a distinct look and finish that suits your home. Below, you’ll find a few tips on choosing the right wood wine rack plans.
- Size – For example if you purchased a winsome wood wine rack (or any type for that matter) you need to make sure that it can hold the amount of wine that desire. While this might seem obvious consider your plans for expanding your wine collection and look into modular options that will allow you to keep a consistent look.
- Design – As noted above the design is important especially if you are planning on storing your wine in a prominent position of your home. There are two approaches you can take and you should be deliberate in your choice. Choose either a style that blends in with your home (more common) or a style that contrasts in an appealing way to allow the wine rack to really stand out. Remember to take into account the entire area the rack will be stored in and not just how appealing you find the storage rack itself which is a common mistake in interior design.
- Wood Varieties – Understand the complexities and wood grains of different types of plans available. When you research the differences between wood wine rack kits and plans that are available be sure to take into account the timber the plans recommend which will often be a key component. While you don’t have to follow the plans completely remember most are designed with the timber in mind.
The Benefits of Creating Your Own Wine Racks
One of the main benefits is the fact that you can easily save money when you build your own. It’s very cost effective, not to mention you can spend the left over money on more wine! Building your own wine rack is also considered a good starting point for those interested in developing their wood working skills a little further, particularly if you are a novice. Wood wine rack plans are generally very simple and require very little in the way of tools.
