Entertaining in a smaller home doesn't have to feel impossible. With these creative storage solutions, you can stock up on all the barware necessities without having to sacrifice your space. Between the wine glasses, the beer mugs, the pitchers, and the bottles themselves, it can be difficult to find a spot for your must-have hostess items. Struggling to make room for your entertaining goods? Follow these four smart tips for simple, convenient storage.
- Buy clever bottle racks: For a stylish solution, try the Pottery Barn SIngle Modular Wine Rack ($12 for one), which can be secured to the wall for easy, out-of-the-way bottle storage. Not only is it a great way to keep your wine options organized, but it's also the perfect excuse to put your favorite bottles on display.
- Stow glassware under a cabinet: Rather than having your nicest glasses collect dust in the cabinet, try storing them beneath one with an under-the-cabinet rack like this Oenophilia Stemware Rack ($15). Your favorite glasses will be easy to reach while also staying clean and protected.
- Turn your bookcase into a bar: Although bookshelves may not be your first thought when it comes to storing glasses, a chic grouping of nice bottles and glassware can work as a convenient, stylish arrangement. Place a few picks in varying sizes between your favorite reads for a cool, eclectic bookcase minibar.
- Curate a few cubes: Buy a few cubes with inner, X-shaped shelves so that you can stack and store your bar bottles. The CB2 Cellar Wine Rack ($40) holds 12 bottles in each cube, so a small stack would be able to hold plenty of your favorite sips.
