Showcase your vino collection in style with one of these amazing built-in wine storage systems…
When you splash the cash on a good drop, you should make the most of your investment by storing it properly. You can’t go putting those bottles just anywhere, you know. Ideally, you want to find somewhere cool and dark where the bottles can rest undisturbed. Oh, and keep them sideways if possible as this keeps the cork wet. If it dries out, oxygen can get in and spoil your wine.
Here are some of the coolest designs we’ve seen…
This secret trap-door wine cellar is the stuff of dreams. It’s a guaranteed talking point at dinner parties, book clubs, or, hey, even with the postman. These cool subterranean wine cellars start at around £15,000 and go up to £70,000, depending on design, choice of door, lighting and any extra accessories you choose to customise your secret stash.
Plus if you ever had a bad day and needed a few hours to relax with a glass or two, you could easily disappear down here. One strategically placed rug and no one would ever know…

The dark polished wood and slanting shelves in this luxurious wine room have got gentlemen’s club written all over them. We can just picture George Clooney smoking a cigar on the wooden stools. The shelves are really easy to recreate on a budget and look tres chic in any home.
Wondering what to do with an alcove space? Bookshelves are nice enough, but this stunning wine cabinet adds a grown-up glamour to any shared space. The real problem is how thirsty you might get while you're watching the TV.
Now, all we have to do is buy enough wine to fill them or perhaps invest in a house with its own vineyard?
