Buying A Wine Cooler

For those who love wine, they’ll figure out fast enough that a standard fridge can’t handle a large supply of bottles of red and white and rose wines. Plus it doesn’t seem do wine justice to have it stored unceremoniously beside the jug of milk and last night’s leftovers.

If you find yourself in the situation where you need more storage for your wine bottles, you may want to consider buying a wine cooler. There are two main types of wine coolers: a built in wine cooler or a freestanding wine cooler. Deciding what type will work best for you isn’t difficult to do. All you need to do is put a little thought into what you need, what space you have and how you’d like the wine cooler to work.

Where to Put the Wine Cooler

Before going through the steps of buying a wine cooler, you need to make sure you have space for one. And if you have space for one, you need to figure out how you’re going to place the unit when you get it.

Determining the placement of your wine cooler will affect the type of purchase you make. If you have extra cupboard space, you may want to consider emptying that cabinet space and putting a built in wine cooler into the spot that was once before unused cupboard space. There are a variety of built in wine coolers and most are designed to fit into small under the counter spaces, so you likely won’t have too much difficulty finding one that meets your needs.

If you happen to have extra space on the floor or counter of your kitchen (or any room you’re planning to put the wine cooler in), a freestanding unit may be the best option. No construction is required to use this type of unit. It’s also easily moveable so if you want to redo a room and put the wine cooler in the renovated room, it’s a very easy process to do so.

How Much Wine Storage

Placement is important to consider when buying a wine cooler. So is how many bottles you want the unit to hold. If you’re looking for a unit that can hold a large variety of bottles, then a freestanding unit may be the better option for you. A freestanding cooler has plenty of space to store bottles and will also provide room to easily increase and store a collection of wines.

Freestanding wine coolers come in a variety of sizes. The more compact units will hold 20 bottles. Bigger units can easily hold more than 300 bottles.Built in units are designed to be more compact and are specially designed to fit well into whatever style your kitchen is. Built in wine coolers are generally not as large as freestanding ones. You can get units that will hold only a few bottles. The bigger, more expensive units can hold over 100 bottles, and sometimes more. Keep in mind, you will need a large kitchen in order to have a big built in that still fits seamlessly with the design of your kitchen.
