Whether you're a major connoisseur or just like to entertain friends over a bottle or two, a collection of wine bottles can take up a lot of space. The good news? Wall mounted wine racks are a great way to show off your vino collection and make a design statement at the same time.

If you aren't a collector but like to keep a few bottles on hand for entertaining, you don't need a large wine rack. For a half dozen bottles, consider installing a standard shelf and adding wine glass racks to its underside, then storing bottles upright on the shelf to display their labels. Handy DIYers can embellish the basic shelf with low sides to keep bottles safer. It's perfectly fine to run to the lumberyard for new wood, but using salvaged materials can be totally chic as well. Consider repurposing a wooden wine crate for a pallet wall wine rack, or use rustic lumber from construction pallets to build a low-profile rustic wine bottle rack.

If you've developed a real love of wine, maybe you've bought a case of your favorite, or maybe your friends keep bringing you new bottles to try. If you're keeping more than a half dozen bottles on hand, you need a more serious storage system. If your house has traditional or perhaps country decor, you can make the most of your wall space with traditional boxes with X-shaped crosspieces inside. These can be stacked vertically or aligned horizontally to expand storage as needed, and they come in a variety of stains and painted finishes.

For modern homes, metal wine racks offer geometric forms or sleek curves. For connoisseurs, a minimalist wine rack can turn a whole wall into a wine cellar-worthy display of your collection.
