Wine Keepers Make the “Must Have” Appliance List
A trend in kitchen design over the last couple of years is the wine refrigerator making it on the Must Have appliance list. Protecting wine against heat, humidity, and light ensures wine integrity including taste and character. Having wine ready to drink at the proper temperature is a convenience homeowners desire today. Below are key factors when reviewing wine refrigeration units.
From a 15-inch Undercounter unit that offers 24 bottle storage to a 30-inch Full-Size Column unit that offers 146 bottle storage, there is something for everyone! Subzero wine refrigerators are well-known leaders in the market and visiting a showroom is a great place to learn more.
Primary or Secondary Residence
Vacation homes are now being upgraded with the same appliances as primary residences. Lifestyle factors of convenience and familiarity come into play here.
Footprint for Design and Usable Space
With a full range of sizing, there is a unit that accommodates your personal design.
Panel Ready Models for Custom Cabinetry Integration
Luxury appliance manufacturers expand wine refrigeration units with panel-ready options to accommodate modern kitchen designs.
Undercounter Wine Keepers are the Most Popular
The most popular wine refrigerators are undercounter units. With 15-inch and 24-inch models, these are the perfect sizes for a Beverage Bar area.
Often undercounter wine, refrigerator, and ice maker units come together in this convenient location. True Residential offers impressive products derived from their well-known commercial refrigeration business.
Having dedicated beverage space plus storage for coordinating glassware and barware, is a real lifesaver!
Full-Size Wine Columns are an Extension
of the Refrigeration Wall
Sometimes, the best wine refrigeration choice is a full-size wine column, available in 18, 24, and 30-inch widths. Wine Columns are placed alongside the kitchen’s primary refrigerator and freezer for a statement-making refrigerator wall design element.
Dedicated Bar & Wine Room Opportunities
A dedicated space outside the kitchen for wine and bar provides huge opportunities.
Here our friends from Monogram Appliances showcase a wine and refrigerator combination that is a convenient all-in-one unit consideration.
Custom Designs for Wine Lovers
We understand that wine is personal and so is the vision for a residential wine room or cellar. Extensive information gathering is needed to meet the function and deliver the WOW!
Cabinetry details like the hidden wine glass storage were thoughtful design elements. Luxury materials include brass, polished nickel and shagreen tiles that brought a stunning design to life.
Cheers to the Holidays and Merry Gatherings
As you can see there is no shortage of luxury appliances to consider for your next kitchen, bar, or wine room project. We understand why wine refrigeration units are gaining popularity and becoming essential.
