With the holidays just around the corner, many of us will be entertaining at home. A wine refrigerator in your kitchen remodel makes it easy to store and serve your favorite wines and other beverages to guests. It’s a small luxury that you’ll thank yourself for every time you pour a glass! If you’re considering a wine refrigerator in your whole home remodel, here are some ideas to keep in mind:
Wine refrigerators are not only convenient for entertaining, they also take good care of your wine. They offer a stable temperature zone to store and age your wines properly, plus protection from the temperature variation that happens in your regular refrigerator. Temperature stability is one the most important factors in sustaining the life and flavor of your wines. Chilling white wine in a regular refrigerator makes wines too cold, while leaving red wines at room temperature makes them too warm. Wine refrigerators, when kept at temperatures close to 55° to 57°, will give you wine that is at perfect drinking temperature.
Many homeowners opt to integrate the wine refrigerator into their custom cabinetry, while some decide to have a separate station dedicated to wine and other beverages. A professional designer can help you determine the ideal placement for the wine refrigerator in your kitchen remodel.
A wine refrigerator is just one of the thoughtful details that makes your kitchen a central hub in your home during the holidays and every day. Working with a unified team of architects, designers and construction professionals, you can find the best ways to bring a welcoming and festive spirit to your whole home remodel!
