Sometimes you just want to spend an evening relaxing at home with a nice glass of wine. It’s a timeless tradition that’s not just enjoyable but also has some great health benefits. Red wine contains healthful antioxidants – properties that help prevent your cells from “oxidizing.” In balanced amounts, wine is touted for promoting longevity and protecting against heart disease and inflammation. The resveratrol in red wine may lower blood pressure, promote good cholesterol, and even help prevent cognitive decline. Now that you know wine’s benefits, it’s time to find the right place to store it. That’s where a wine cabinet comes in. Here are our picks for best wine cabinets.
Urban meets rustic
Serving wine and cheese is easy with this design, with its built-in appetizer or serving shelf. The see-through metal mesh means you can still have your fine wine bottles on display. This Walker Edison wine cabinet features two solid mesh doors to keep your bottles safe and secure when not being used. A nice feature of this model is how the top surface acts as a shelf or table that can support up to 60 pounds. The bottom storage area can hold up to 50 pounds, with each shelf offering enough support for 20 pounds on its own. The matte black color gives a subdued look that won’t clash with other décor. We especially like the wood finish on the top shelf and backsplash that comes in a grey wash or reclaimed barn-wood shade, giving the cabinet a unique combination of an urban yet rustic feel.
Heavy duty construction
Another great choice from Walker Edison, this wine cabinet is made with high-grade MDF with metal accents. MDF is a composite manufactured from recycled wood fibers and resin, which results in a dense and stable construction that won’t warp or crack like regular wood. The top shelf holds up to 75 pounds, while the cabinet can manage 40, and each storage cubicle supports 7, so you won’t have to worry about a bottle being too big or too heavy. The cabinet accommodates up to 8 bottles and enough glasses to fit three rows of hangers. We like how the inner cabinet holds glasses and other accessories, while the outside cubbies leave room to put your finest bottles on display.
A touch of class
This wine cabinet from Convenience Concepts is crafted from a combination of MDF, hollow core, and melamine, ensuring it will last a long time without losing its structural integrity or aesthetic value. After all, wine only gets better with age, so your wine cabinet should be made to stand the test of time, too. With attractive cubbies, upper and lower shelving, two drawers for all your accessories, and a striking faux marble tabletop, this attractive furnishing is a full serving station. It’s modern, modular look goes great against any contemporary backdrop.
For more than wine
Your favorite wine or liquor bottles will look lovely displayed in the double glass door design of this dressy wine cabinet. The Home Source model features a wood-constructed frame with a subtle gray wash finish that balances between rustic and modern looks. The built-in wine rack can store up to 15 wine bottles, and the transparent glass doors with handles give it an elegant touch. The upper and lower shelving offer all sorts of options both practical and decorative, for things like plants, wine bottles, and artsy plates. The lower shelf is spacious enough to house a microwave, even though it’s much too pretty to put one there. You can also hang a dozen wine glasses beneath the top shelf, for quick and easy access after a long day at work.
A place for everything
So many possibilities. You can store wine bottles, glasses, and even full sized dishes in this versatile wine cabinet that doubles as a console table. Kings Brand Furniture created this wine rack to cater to both wine enthusiasts and casual drinkers. The espresso finish complements the overall aesthetic design of the wine rack and dresses up any interior. The crisscross patterned open center shelving houses 24 bottles of wine, so you can invite the whole wine club over with no problem. This sturdy piece weighs approximately 65 pounds and is meant to be long lasting, so it will continue to be a display piece in your home for years to come.
