A wine fridge is an investment in fun. This is a luxury purchase that should be as fun to buy as it is to use. You want a wine fridge that will do everything you need it to do, storing your valuable wines at the perfect temperature for ideal taste and long term storage.
You know that your wine won’t taste as good as the day you opened it forever, but it would be nice to enjoy a bottle over several days rather than pushing yourself or your company to drink the wine before you have to throw it out.
A wine fridge that is too big will take up more space than necessary and you will find yourself looking for bottles just to fill the space. A wine fridge that is too small will leave you choosing which wines get the privileged fridge treatment and which have to sit in a bottle holder next to the fridge. Take an honest account of the amount of wine you are likely to go through. Think about holidays and hosting times, as well as what you and your family will consume.
Are you renovating or building a kitchen, and have a space that you’d like to fill with something more fun than more cabinet space? Perhaps you are dedicating a space in your kitchen, living room, or den to a bar area and have plenty of space to fit a stylish wine fridge that will make your space look elegant. Maybe you don’t have much room to devote to your wine fridge, and just need a small table-top variety. Whatever space you have to devote to your new wine fridge you can find a fridge that will fit your needs perfectly.
Some fridges are sleek and modern looking. Some look so classic they seem that they could have existed in the ‘20s. Wine fridges often have internal lights so you can easily identify the bottles. While most people find these lights convenient, others prefer a non-lighted wine fridge that looks more classic.
Do you want to see right into your wine fridge, or do you want the door frosted for some mystery in your wine storage? Smoked glass wine fridges conceal the contents of your fridge from guests or children, while clear glass wine fridges invite guests to your designated den or bar to help themselves to your delicious wines. Letting people see into your wine fridge or not is up to you, but is an important decision, so keep this in mind when considering a wine fridge to meet your needs.
