Wouldn't a wine rack above a fridge always be a bit warm & not ideal for wine storage?

It was the best option for these clients that like to entertain and have severe space constraints.

I agree with molliemartian. While attractive, this is a very undesirable place to store wine. Heat rises so upper cabinet storage of temperature sensitive wine is a bad idea. Throw in the heat generating fridge below that and you have a double dose of wine killing temps. No matter the storage issues, wine storage in this area is not a good idea.

Yes, WAY too hot for wine storage. Unless it's mulled. ;) i prefer to add slats/dividers and keep trays and cookie sheets up there.

Unfortunately this was an extremely tight kitchen in a DC rowhome built in the 1800s and this was the only space available for the wine. With today's modern refrigerators, we find they don't produce nearly as much heat as the old versions did. Not saying it is "ideal" by any means, but sometimes you have to work with the space you have.

How do you open the refrigerator door without hitting the wall? - My refrigerator is next to a door. Each time we open the refrigerator it opens all the way and hits the door. I can open the pantry door, but this means the door is open most of the time. This does not look good with the open concept kitchen. We are trying to sell our home and need a suggested fix. Thanks for any help.

I agree with Conceptual's suggestion regarding the hinge for your situation. In future remodeling projects, you simply had a small cabinetry "filler" between the wall and the fridge so you don't run into that same situation.

I have the same design and refrigerator type. I use a clear bumper (about 1/2' square)that sticks on the wall. It prevents a ding in the door of the refrigerator and isn't noticable.

I have this fridge, it's really nice to look at but the water dispenser doesn't have the "in door" ice option. The ice maker is actually in the freezer drawer and the ice falls in it's own little drawer. It's a pain to get to it!

PS: I love this kitchen and my renovation is going to be based on this!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This built-in wine rack features a crisscross design as an unexpected geometric element. Keeping the wine rack the same color and material as the rest of the kitchen makes for a seamless design.
