When you live in a small space, you’ve got to make the most of your storage, especially when it comes to your wine. Cabinets aren’t the only option, and sure, you can find small space-friendly wine racks out there. Wall-mounted racks though? They take things up a level, literally, and anyone who has had their kiddos or pets colliding into furniture knows what I’m talking about. 

If you want to curate and display a wine collection that doesn’t collect countertop dust or take up a sizable footprint of a floor plan, wall-mounted is the best way to go with your wine storage. Before you mount that rack though, consider a few of these best practices. Look for something that allows you to store your bottles on their sides, which can prevent early spoilage. Wine can be sensitive to light and temperature, so pick a place for storing bottles that’s out of direct sun. Try to avoid any area that shakes, too, like next to a laundry machines or a speaker, which can disturb the sediments of older bottles.

All that being said, if you’re not one to have bottles hanging around the house for very long (read: wine is for drinking — not decorating), then breaking some of these storage rules isn’t such a big deal. When wall-mounted wine racks look as good as the ones I’ve found though, you might want to keep a few bottles on hand to enjoy as wall art and a conversation pieces.
