Rather than being common in kitchen design, a wine cooler serves as a storing unit for the avid connoisseur of fine bottled wines. Therefore, your need for a wine cooler could depend on how serious you are about collecting and consuming wine. If you have less than five bottles in your kitchen at any given time, then you probably don’t need a cooler; but if there are 20 or more bottles stored across multiple cabinets, baskets, and rooms, then a wine cooler could be a wise investment.
Other factors to consider include your practices as a wine consumer. Is the wine in your house generally consumed within weeks of the purchase date, or do you wish to age certain bottles? In the latter case, you’d want to ensure that the bottles are consistently stored at temperatures of 55-60 degrees Fahrenheit. Depending on the size of your house or apartment, you’d also want to consider the measurements and noise level of a cooling unit. For example, Sub-Zero has different sizes to fit every kitchen design!
