Are you running out of space for a wine rack? Don’t worry. You don’t have to own a wine cellar to enjoy your glass of wine on that special occasion. There’s often an alternative that satisfies your taste and at the same time, doesn’t break the bank. In this post, we’ll go through some DIY wine rack ideas that have space saving potential. What we will be showcasing here can hopefully inspire you to make one on your own or have it made for you by an experienced woodworker.
So without further ado, let’s look at each one:
A-Shaped Wine Rack
If there’s no more space on the floor, why not hang it on the wall? This wine rack is relatively easy to build. To make it even simpler, you can omit the wine glass rack and just put a shelving. If you browse through the other articles on this site, you’ll find a similar variant that makes use of a single piece of wood (photo by Jessica Petersen licensed under CC BY-NC 2.0).
Strapped Cardboard Wine Rack
This is definitely the ultimate space saver. Simply put it in a corner and be done with it. Everything is easy to customize too. If you need less, just get rid of some cardboard boxes and adjust the strap accordingly. The design is so brilliant that it can hit the ceiling if you need more (photo by Andreas Hopf licensed under CC BY-NC 2.0).
Vinyl Wine Rack
This is one of the best DIY wine rack ideas we’ve seen. Each vinyl can hold a single bottle. The one in the photo holds 5 and can fit comfortably onto any shelf. The design is modular too. You can start adding to the base if you need more capacity. Cheap vinyl records are sold online, in thrift stores or in bargain bins of record stores (photo by Cherisse23 licensed under CC BY-NC-SA 2.0).
Wine Rack Made From Rods
Rods make a simplistic wine rack. You also hang them on the wall like the A-shaped wine rack. A couple of rods can hold a wine bottle pretty well. They give you creative freedom too. In picture 7 of 10 from the article here, you’ll find creative designs that make use of rods (photos by Ben Ward licensed under CC BY-NC-ND 2.0 and Chris Farmer licensed under CC BY-NC 2.0).
Compressed Wine Rack Shelf
If you don’t have room for a large wine rack shelf, then this design is something you’ll want to consider for your DIY wine rack. It doesn’t occupy much space and at the same time, is capable of holding plenty of bottles (photo by loonyhiker licensed under CC BY-NC-ND 2.0).
Riddling Wine Rack
Riddling racks are classic. If you can’t think of a DIY rack right away, this is surely the go-to design. It may not be much of a space saver if placed on the floor, but it can double as an artwork if you hang it on the wall (Photo by tadfad licensed under CC BY-NC 2.0).
