What Houzz contributors are saying:
For true wine aficionados, a full room may be required to house their collections. In the 8- by 9-foot (243.8- by 274.3-centimeter) wine cellar above, conventional wooden racks hold most of the bottles. A display rack is part of the scheme at about counter height, so that some bottles can be quickly identified. The lower back wall holds a humidor and some space for cases of wine behind cabinet doors. The racks in this arrangement are about 12 inches (30.4 centimeters) deep, so at these dimensions, there is about a 6-foot (182.8-centimeter) square space to open the door into and to move about in.The wine room below appears to be much larger than this example. Parallel racks in which the necks of the bottles overlap allows more stowage than would otherwise be available in this configuration. While this arrangement might allow less wine storage per square foot, finding a particular bottle is easier than in conventional storage.
