Wood Wine Rack Comparison

Wood wine racks come in two primary categories; kit and custom. While shopping for a storage solution, you may be wondering which is best for you. Below is a guide to help you make an educated purchase.

Kit Racking

Kit racking is pre-made. They come in a variety of different styles; from column racking, x bins, half height, to waterfall wine racks. Due to each rack being pre-fabricated, the dimensions and bottle capacity are set. You may not be able to fill your room from floor to ceiling the way you can with custom wine racking. Wood choices and stains are also pre-determined.

Custom Racking

Custom racking is handcrafted to the exact specifications of your space and storage needs of your wine collection. If you decide to choose a custom wine rack, you will work closely with a cellar specialist and our in-house design team to create the wine cellar of your dreams. Choosing custom allows for a wider variety of materials and stains. You can mix traditional wood racking with modern metal racking, and more! If you desire, you may be able to fill your entire room from floor to ceiling with wine.

Choosing between custom and kit racking is largely based on the needs of your collection, your specific style, and your budget. If you are looking for an economical storage solution that is still attractive and desire a quicker turnaround time, kit racking is a good option. If you have a specific design in mind and want to maximize your storage capacity, then custom wine racking is the best option for you.
