This might just be our most beautiful barrel for collecting rainwater.
Additionally, you can also purchase the untreated luxurious whiskey barrel or wine barrel as a rain barrel. Furthermore, we have a sturdier variant called the "Whisky" rain barrel. This one has a darker color and is finished with a brass tap. So, when it comes to a rainwater barrel, you have plenty of choices! From small wooden rain barrels to larger ones with a luxurious finish.
Easy Rainwater Tapping
All our wooden rain barrels are available with a brass tap. This tap adds a vintage and rustic look to your garden and makes it easy to tap rainwater from the oak rain barrel. Each barrel is unique, and as a result, the height of the tap varies per rain barrel, depending on the height of the iron bands around the barrel. The wooden rain barrels can be further treated with special Barrel Atelier wood stain and can be placed on a (possibly mobile) oak base. Moreover, the handcrafted rain barrels with a wood look perfectly match our beautiful selection of whiskey and wine barrel furniture. Even small water barrels fit perfectly in a country-style interior.
A Small Rain Barrel or a Larger Variant
To ensure the wooden rain barrel fits both in terms of size and appearance in your garden, it is essential to choose the right one. An authentic wooden rain barrel is a true eye-catcher, immediately drawing attention when placed in your garden. If you have a small garden, it is logical to choose a small rain barrel, unless you prefer to create contrast in your garden, in which case a larger wooden rain barrel is the better option!
A regular rainwater barrel has a capacity of around 50L, but this is generally considered quite small. In contrast, our wooden rain barrels can store 120L to 225L. This enables you to save tap water even during the driest periods. If you are looking for a rain barrel with a larger capacity, we recommend a wine barrel rain barrel with a capacity of 190L or 225L.
Advantages of Oak Wood Rain Barrels
Our wooden rain barrels are made from oak wood, known for its hard and durable characteristics. This applies to both large and small rain barrels. Both variants also share aging characteristics, such as the wood turning grey over the years. Oak belongs to durability class 2 and, therefore, has a much longer lifespan than other types of wood.
Additionally, oak wood rain barrels offer a unique look and feel. Many choose oak wood for its fine grain and flame pattern. Furthermore, oak wood naturally ages over time, providing a stylish way to collect rainwater in the barrel.
Apart from the type of wood, a rain barrel also offers the following advantages:
- A constant water supply, even during droughts
- Free water
- A decorative element in your garden
- Lime-free water, better for your garden and plants
- Environmentally friendly as you conserve water
Large and Small Rain Barrels with a Tap
Besides their appealing appearance as statement pieces in the garden, old wine and whiskey barrels also serve a very practical purpose: they collect rainwater. This water can then be used for washing your car or watering your garden.
To make using the water easier, both large and small water barrels at Barrel Atelier come with a tap. This allows you to easily tap the water from the barrel without wasting any. Once you've attached the barrel to the rainwater pipe, it will refill with water when it rains.
The Rising Popularity of Rain Barrels
Wooden barrels are a hot topic. Municipalities throughout the Netherlands are encouraging residents to disconnect their rain gutters from the sewer system, which reduces the strain on the sewage system. Wooden rain barrels offer an effective way to store rainwater temporarily for later use, such as cleaning your car or watering plants and flowers. Both large and small rain barrels can be attached to the rain gutter, ensuring you have a supply of clean and lime-free water for an extended period during the year. This is not only environmentally friendly but also economical.
A Beautiful Addition to Your Rain Barrels
In addition to our wooden rain barrels, we also create various garden items from reused wine and whiskey barrels. Feel free to explore our lounge sets, wooden bathtubs, and flower beds. A wine barrel flower bed is a stunning addition to your garden, especially when combined with a wooden rain barrel, emphasizing the rustic ambiance in your garden.
