In their recent project, they converted a tiny room into a sophisticated wine storage display. Learn more about the custom features of this Texas home wine cellar.
Building a Wine Cellar in a Limited Space
Limited space is one of the common problems faced by many wine lovers who desire to build a functional wine room in their home. Traditionally, wine cellars are located in basements to provide wine a cool environment necessary for aging.
Nowadays, a refrigerated wine cellar can be installed almost anywhere in your home such as the garage, closet, or under the stairs. An expert in wine room construction can provide a turnkey solution to the unique requirements of their clients.
Wine Cellar Specialists, a master builder in Texas, completed the installation of an attractive wine storage facility in Colleyville. They have been our partner in wine cellar construction for many years. They offer products and services that suit the unique needs of every wine enthusiast.
Custom Features of the Wine Rack System
Wine racks are not only storage units for one’s wine collection, but are also one of the factors that affect the overall appearance of a Texas home wine cellar. For these reasons, your wine racks must be manufactured using durable and appealing materials. Additionally, they must also be designed with functionality and creativity.
In this wine room conversion project, Wine Cellar Specialists designed and installed the wine racks, refrigeration system, door, flooring, walls, and ceilings. They took into account many factors to ensure that everything suited the room’s location and size, and the client’s personal preference and budget.
Visually Appealing Wooden Wine Racks with Grapevine Design
There are important considerations in creating a wine rack design. Wine Cellar Specialists spent quality time to know the aesthetic and functional requirements of the homeowner.
They used racking styles and included custom features that would suit the mood that the client wanted to achieve.
The design was also created according to the number of bottles intended to be stored in this Texas wine cellar.
Combining Various Wine Rack Styles to Create an Eye-Catching Storage Display
Known as a top-notch wine cellar builder, the team of Wine Cellar Specialists always sees to it that every design they create is incorporated with bottle orientations that create elegant and unique wine display. In this project, they combined different wine rack styles to achieve this.
The left sidewall has three rows of single bottle storage slots at the top section. Below this racking are two display rows. The first row is a low reveal display and the bottom row is a high reveal display. LED tape lighting was installed above each display row.
On the left of the individual wine rack is a window between two half-height, quarter round display racks. These quarter round storage units sit on a tabletop located below the window to the kitchen. The tabletop is made of engineered planks from reclaimed wine barrels. Two case storage bins and more single bottle storage racks were added to the bottom section of the left wall.
Just like the left wall, the right wall also consists of two display rows in the middle section. Additional slots for individual bottle storage were added to the top and bottom sections.
The focal point of this small, yet beautiful wine room is the wine rack at the back wall. Wine Cellar Specialists used an elegant solid arch incorporated with a grapevine design. They added a glass rack and slots for magnum bottles on both sides of the arch. As an additional custom feature, they also added a tumbled marble tile behind the arch. The tile matches the classic appeal of wooden wine racks.
To add functionality to this Texas wine cellar, they installed another reclaimed wine barrel tabletop with two drawers below it. The drawers were also carved with a grapevine design on the front to match the solid arch. Each of these drawers has a handle pull equipped with a European style self-closing slide hardware, which came from the Vineyard Collection hardware of Wine Specialists.
The bottom section of the back wall was installed with a diamond solid bin wine rack. This type of rack is ideal for storing wines in bulk.
Attractive and Durable Material for the Wine Racks
In addition to the design of your wine rack system, another factor that helps achieve an appealing wine storage display for a home is the material used to construct your wine racks.
Wood and metal are the most widely-used materials in manufacturing wine racks.
Most wine cellar builders recommend the wooden wine racks for residential owners who love the classic appeal of wood. Wooden wine racks are not only beautiful, but durable as well.
In this conversion project, Wine Cellar Specialists used Premium Redwood for the wine racks. This wood variety exhibits a reddish color with streaks that add character to the wine racks.
A Perfect Choice for the Flooring of a Home Wine Cellar Built in Texas
There are many factors that can help achieve the ideal environment needed by wine to age properly. One of these factors is the wine cellar flooring, which should also be chosen carefully for aesthetic and functional purposes.
Wine Cellar Specialists always recommends the addition of an eco-friendly feature in their client’s wine room. In this project, they used Cooperage flooring. It is a style of flooring, which makes use of reclaimed wine barrels. In this style of flooring, the wood pieces come from the top and bottom sections of used barrels. The wooden planks are engineered to create flooring that displays the unique stamps and markings of the barrels.
Just like the walls and ceiling, the flooring was installed with the proper insulation to prevent warm air from mixing with the cool air inside the wine cellar. Proper insulation helps regulate the conditions in wine storage facilities.
Unique and Cost-Effective Walls and Ceilings
Another feature that makes this Texas home wine cellar stand out is the Stonecoat design on the walls and ceiling. Stonecoat is a material made of crushed limestone from France. To create a gorgeous stone effect, the material is blown onto the surface and hand carved. It is then colored according to the client’s preference.
Cooling the Cellar with a Wine Refrigeration System
The most important component of a wine room is the cooling system. Its function is very important in helping wine achieve proper maturation before it is consumed.
Wine Cellar Specialists used a ducted self-contained wine cooling unit by Wine Guardian. It was placed in a conditioned space in the attic, creating minimal noise.
