One of the most important considerations for a wine rack, aside from functionality, is its aesthetics. Of course, a wine rack should be sturdy and stable to hold your favourite vintages and the rest of your precious collection, but appearances do matter when it comes to purchasing a new wall wine rack due to the amount of space it takes up and the sort of statement it can make on yourself and any guests you may have over.

Traditional wine racks are almost always made of wood, although some are wrought iron. Wood makes sense, given its refined yet natural touch that exudes comfort and quality. Moreover, natural wood finishes contrast nicely with the bottles in your collection, creating a pleasant appearance that showcases your wine collection brilliantly.

What are some of the most elegant and timeless finishes to look for in a wine rack? Here are a few ideas to get you started:

01. Burnt Pine Wood

Balancing elegance and style with convenience and practicality, burnt wine wall racks such as our Burnt Pine Corner Wine Rack create a wonderful contrast with your wine bottles. This finish is an excellent complement with brick or other natural wall finishes that you may have in your wine cellar, including other wood species as well or earthy paint tones.

Burnt pine is a finish that can be quite versatile for a wine rack. It could lean more towards contemporary if you have other wood accents, but also traditional with relative ease.

02. Solid Oak

Few wood species have as much of a homely feel as solid oak, a mighty and noble species which we offer on product such as our Solid Oak Corner Wine Rack. This rack is a corner rack like the previous product, but we do offer a range of other wall racks in beautiful and timeless solid oak as well.

Solid oak is somewhat of a finer-grain species characterised by little specks and vibrant specks, particularly on lighter variants of oak which we use on our wine rack products. Moreover, solid oak exudes strength and “feels” sturdy, although all of our wine racks are quite sturdy!

03. Premium New Zealand Pine

As a softwood species, pine is extremely versatile and used for everything from housing construction to building furniture as well as wine racks like our Diamond Wine Rack Set. Pine certainly feels quite cosy as a finish, and its lighter colour gives it a nice pop when contrasted with a few bottles of red racked up.

Many of our wine racks use Premium New Zealand Pine Wood, a supremely refined and charming species with plenty of character.

04. Mahogany Brown (Finish)

Mahogany is certainly a finish that makes a statement, and it’s often called rich and that word certainly is apt for such an elegant species. Unfortunately, pure mahogany often comes at a premium cost, so it isn’t always an affordable solution for the typical consumer.

Our 30-Bottles Cube Wine Rack is one of our many wall wine rack sets that comes in a beautiful mahogany finish, although the material itself is premium New Zealand pine which is far more affordable.

05. Rustic Hardwood

Many of our cellar wine rack sets such as our Wine Cabinet Display Stand come in a variety of rustic hardwood species featuring varying knots and textured finishes that have an Old World feel balanced with refined modern charm when used as a wine rack in your cellar or elsewhere in your home.
