Whether you DIY or hire a contractor, a wine wall can be a focal point of a room. First you have to decide where to build the wine wall. You want it to be accessible such as near the wine glasses or by the wet bar or in your game room and you want to consider its size based on your collection. You don't want a half full wall. Heat or direct sunlight must also be considered because either would ruin the wine in short order.
Decide on the look you are going for. Designers are great at helping with this step. Should you go contemporary matching a wood fireplace or modern with metal framing or acrylic? You might want to match an existing color scheme.
Next you need to measure your space and purchase the necessary materials. Designers would map out the display on paper and secure it to the area to visualize the size and spacing of the rack. This step calls for careful deliberation.
Ideally you could refrigerate your wine rack. A good red wine is often best enjoyed in the low 60-degree range. White wine is fabulous in the low 50s. Bubbles should be served at around 48 degrees. There are many self-contained storage fridges that can help with serving temperatures. Long term storage puts red wine a little colder and whites a little warmer than ideal serving temps. While 55 degrees is recommended, just remember that the colder a wine is stored the slower it will age. (Vintage View)
