Making major renovations to your home is a big deal. It’s the kind of thing you only do once or twice in a lifetime. So, if renovations are in your near future, and you love wine, now might be the perfect time to consider some amazing wine cabinet ideas!
What’s that you say? You don’t have the budget or the space for a full-blown wine cellar? No worries, there’s a perfect solution: a wine cabinet.
What is a Wine Cabinet?
Wine cabinets are fully self-contained units designed to store wine at either long-term preservation or serving temperatures. They come fully assembled and are ready to use out of the box. The cabinets have a sleek look and are designed to stand alone out in the open, but given the proper ventilation, can be incorporated into a nook, wall, or bump-out in the room.
Wine Cabinet Ideas
For less than the cost of a vacation rental at the beach, you can have a touch of luxury in your home! Here are a few ideas for inspiration:
Home Bar and Cigar Lounge
Converting your basement or garage into a home theater, den, or game room is one the most popular renovations, and for good reason: Not only does it give you more space to use, but it can add significantly to your home’s value. Adding a bar or cigar lounge to your entertainment space can take it to a completely different level!
Imagine a space with warm wood tones and granite countertops, accented by low-voltage lighting. Leather chairs and a chaise lounge are arranged in a circle, facing each other. A counter with a sink runs along the back of the bar, and your wine cabinet stands as the centerpiece, emitting a soft glow from its interior lighting. Outfitted with our angled display racks, you can clearly see the bottles of high-end reds, aging to perfection. A cedar cigar humidor on the bar ties it all together.
Need wine storage ideas for small spaces that are a bit less permanent and more flexible? Wine Guardian units come with heavy-duty casters so you can move and reconfigure your setup as your needs change.
Level-Up Your Kitchen
According to TestHut, Americans spend about 400 hours a year in the kitchen. Kitchen upgrades are not only functional, they’re also one of the best ways to raise the value of your home. Adding a wine cabinet to the layout will transform an everyday kitchen into a focal point of the home. Especially if you love to cook, this will be where everyone gathers during parties and family affairs!
If your kitchen has an unused pantry or closet, consider using the space to install a wine cabinet. The clean, European design of our cabinets compliment almost any style of décor, from country to modern. When countersunk into a wall or nook, the cabinet becomes a beautiful display case for your collection. All Wine Guardian cabinets have adjustable temperature settings — for storage or serving — so you can use the unit as a staging area to serve wine to your guests, right on the spot!
Working with limited space? If you don’t have as much room, our Single-Zone units have a slightly smaller profile, perfect for those with smaller collections or for those with space constraints.
Bed and Breakfast Upgrades
For some entrepreneurial spirits, buying an old home and renovating it into a Bed and Breakfast or Air BnB is a life goal. Very few properties are turnkey; most often the house will need extensive work.
To provide your guests with a posh experience, why not power-up your great room or dining area with a wine collection? Or maybe you plan on having a professional kitchen with an in-house chef. All the more reason to give your guests the best. For the price, Wine Guardian cabinets are an attainable luxury, and in the grand scheme of major renovations, a small expense that will pay for itself over time.
People who love the B&B life seek rest and relaxation but also inspiration and intellectual stimulation! How about a lounge area/library with books on shelves, lots of comfy nooks and seating to curl up with a good novel, a coffee machine, teas and pastries, and there, nestled in between the shelves, a beautiful wine collection housed in a whisper-quiet wine cabinet.
If the safety and security of your guests, and your wines, are a concern, you can rest easy: every Wine Guardian unit comes with a simple-to-use door lock.
