You don’t have to procure your own vineyard to enjoy the year-round luxury of your own private stock.
For those who are looking to incorporate a wine cellar into their own home, it’s essential to first assess your space to determine the best fit and value. Whether you opt for a seated bar, simple rack compartment, or full scale cellar, you will want to make sure you’re storing and sipping your vino in the right conditions.
From classic wine cellars to creative contemporary displays integrated into a room’s design, here are stunning wine rooms and displays that will have you thinking about whether you’ll be enjoying a glass of red or white tonight.
BENEATH THE STAIRS
Several of the most popular wine storage spaces were cleverly tucked underneath the stairs. In addition to maximizing the space, it also helps keep the wine out of direct sunlight on an upper floor.
Stone looks are a classic choice for wine cellars. Ceramic stone-look tiles provide infinite design versatility plus the durability and easy care of ceramic tile. This wine cellar features stone-look tile flooring for an old-world feel.
MAKE YOUR BOTTLES SPARKLE
One of the keys to a modern wine cellar design? Let your wine collection shine by using your bottles as the central design element. Use cove lighting or clean fixtures to highlight your bottles without distracting.
Glass doors, like the ones shown above are the fastest way to create a stunning, yet minimal entryway for your wine room while still keeping the area temperature and humidity controlled to protect your wines.
COMFY AND COZY
Such a cozy wine cellar. You can sit and sip your wine, relax and forget about the troubles of the day. Or better yet–celebrate?
Choose a racking system that places bottles horizontally. It’s how wine bottles should be properly stored to keep corks moist, and showing foil caps and corks creates cleaner lines than displaying labels.
Keep a low profile with a bump out. Tucking a narrow wine storage and display space into a wall is a great way to keep the flow of an open floor plan.
ADD STATEMENT PIECE
Want to mix styles? A single statement piece, like a luxe chandelier is a great way to bring in a traditional design element for a high style look.
VINTAGE AND RUSTIC
With many features including waterfall tier magnum racking, a gorgeous marble countertop centerpiece display, library style floor to ceiling wine racks, as well as wine case storage, horizontal and high reveal displays, and an arch covered mirror and table top, this custom wine cellars is truly a masterpiece.
Patterned tile allows you to create a completely different look and can be a great complement to the more traditional elements often seen in wine cellars.
Everything that involves a fine bottle of wine is about precision, perfection and a great deal of care. With evolving design of modern homes and more people eager to showcase their exquisite wine collection, elegant storage areas that double up as proud displays are becoming a popular trend.
