Space-Saving Wine Coolers
For those of us that really enjoy wine, there is always the question of how best to store it properly. If your home has lots of space, the options for wine storage are nearly unlimited. However, in some homes, finding space for a wine cooler to store your best vintages is a challenge. Many people reside in apartments, condominiums, and other small homes that require a real sensitivity to space-saving opportunities. There are solutions to this very dilemma by purchasing a countertop wine cooler.
Kitchen countertops usually vary between 24 and 26 inches in depth. Overhead cabinets in kitchens are usually between 16 and 24 inches above the base cabinet countertop. Another critical dimension of concern is the width of the product you purchase as it relates to area you have available on your countertop. Of course, if you have some extra floor space but no countertop space, your small space-saving wine cooler can be placed on a small table. Again, the dimensions of the wine cooler you purchase are still critical to consider.
Countertop wine coolers are normally 10 to 19 inches wide, 19 to 25 inches deep and 11 to 21 inches in height. A few “tower” type wine coolers will be 6 to 11 inches wide, 20 to 22 inches deep and 20 to 26 inches in height.
One new product now available is a wall-mounted wine cooler that is 18 inches wide, 19 inches deep and 30 inches tall. This wall-mounted wine cooler can easily be mounted on any wall where you might have space.
The countertop wine cooler class has a broad array of wine bottle capacities. Wine coolers are available to store 4, 6, 8, 12, 16 or 17 bottles of your favorite vintages. Almost all of the wine coolers in this class feature thermoelectric cooling systems that use no compressor chemicals. Wine cooling results from using thermal coupling technology. Generally, the only moving part to one of these wine coolers is the fan that circulates the air within the interior of the product.
Most of the countertop wine refrigerators come in classic black. Several models sport a black cabinet but will have silver, platinum or stainless steel door trim. There is a wide range of temperature controls, door handles, and shelving styles to fit any body’s needs.
Do not let limited space in your home keep you from investing in a wine cooler that will provide the preferred storage for all your best vintages. For more information see:
