One of the biggest trends in home décor is the addition of a wine room. Many homes are adding wine cellars for storage, so adding a seating area to enjoy it within is a natural progression.
The wine room is typically a space located right off of the wine cellar to allow for maximum convenience, but it can also be an extension of your great room. Conversational seating for tastings are usually around a table that is large enough to accommodate the wine and any food served.
The wine room should also provide durable surfaces for wine to be served. A rustic French Country home might choose a distressed harvest table surrounded by comfortable host chairs. Perhaps a round oversized table with a plank top that accents gouge marks and dings provides an inviting area for conversation over a bottle or two. For those who do not want to be concerned with maintenance issues, they may want to consider a stone or glass topped surface.
Counter height tables are increasingly popular for the wine room, surrounded by unique bar stools. Serving pieces that will store barware, glasses, and openers should also be conveniently placed in the space. Most wine rooms are not expansive areas of the home, but rather intimate spaces that allow for conversation and the total wine experience.
Depending on your style, the space might offer a tile or wood floor that can be softened by a decorative rug. If it is not large enough to accommodate a dining table, then smaller chairs surrounding a cocktail table is also a nice alternative.
Modern spaces will incorporate more metal or stone into their wine tasting areas, giving it a more hipster loft feel. Collections of glasses may be displayed on open shelves, creating a lighter feel with a sparkle from the crystal. Accessorize with books about wine or framed labels from some of your favorite past bottles.
