If wine glass storage is a problem in your home, you are not alone. I have an entire house – in the Midwest, no less – and I still had to DIY a semi-permanent solution for my collection of vintage cups and colorful tumblers. Not having an inch of available kitchen cabinet space, I went upright with staggered shelves that I cut and painted, then leveled on sturdy gold racks in my dining room. Fortunately, there is an easier way. In fact, there are four easier ways and none of them involve a saw or paint.
But before you decide how you’re going to organize your stemware, be honest with yourself about how much you really need. If you are holding on to dozens of durable wine glasses because you think you might use them someday, or because they were a gift and you feel bad about getting rid of them, maybe it’s time to let them go in favor of a few of you. I really like. Once you have downsized your rooms, you might find that you have room to store your stemmed glasses in a cabinet after all, while a new or new vintage set for you might be worthy of a shelf. opened.
Whether you want to hide them or display them, here are four easy options – and 19 products – for storing and organizing wine glasses in 2022.
Store your wine glasses on simple wall shelves
Do you also have a weakness for beautiful glassware? If so, consider storing it on a simple shelf in a prominent place. Simple shelves mounted on the wall above your home bar make it easy to rotate other items like cookbooks, decanters and plants while keeping your wine glasses, goblets and tumblers close at hand. If you like this kind of open storage, play around with the wall space you have available to integrate your glassware into your decor. If you don’t have room for a large wall shelf, a collection of offset floating shelves is a versatile and easy way to personalize your stemware storage.

Hang wine glasses upside down under (or inside) a cabinet
Should you hang your stemware upside down? This wine glass storage solution makes so much sense in a busy bar or restaurant where waiters and bartenders need easy access to a clean glass and everything needs to dry quickly. But it can also work in your home, especially if you are short on space. Hanging wineglass racks can easily be mounted under a kitchen cabinet (or in a cabinet if you have room) and will help prevent dust from building up inside your glasses.

Use a wall mounted wine glass holder
Want functional wine glass storage that is a bit more visually appealing? A wall rack specially designed to hold wine glasses is a safe way to display and store your stemmed glasses, as long as you don’t have too many. Like storing wine glasses under cabinets, these racks are designed to hold glasses upside down to prevent them from collecting dust (or other flying kitchen debris). It’s rare to find a residential wine glass rack that can hold more than 12 glasses, but many have extra shelves for wine bottles or other decor, which can be useful if you’re short on space.

Pack and store wine glasses that you don’t use regularly
Do you always keep excess stemware? If you only take out your wine glasses for big holiday dinners or if you’re not quite ready to part with the set you signed up for, you can safely pack them in a case padded specially designed for the storage of wine glasses. Another option is to use cardboard dividers in a regular moving or filing box (just make sure you label it before you stick it in the basement or garage). Whichever you choose, don’t let your wine glasses end up under a box of books.
