A serious wine collector might want to install large openwork wine racks along the wall in the game room. There are both square and diamond shaped designs for holding up to 208 bottles. If that is the size you need, make sure that there are solid side panels to bear some of the weight of full bottles. Also, be prepared to assemble these units and attach them firmly to the wall.
There are advantages to using cabinets for wine storage, whether in the kitchen or game room. As pieces of furniture, they blend into the décor as these units are available in many styles and colors. There are amusing pieces like barrel or canoe shaped cabinets and nostalgic designs such as the reproduction of an antique secretary desk. Some cabinets are dual purpose, incorporating space for a full bar service. And, they all have drawers or shelves for the glasses, corkscrews, and ice buckets you need to play host. Wherever you install your choice of wine cabinets, take note of the temperature and light conditions so your wine does not just look good, it retains its quality.
