Glass wine rooms can pose a real challenge, especially when they’re placed in a brightly lit living room. With the increasing popularity of custom glass wine cellars by homeowners in California, there’s a growing demand for innovative wine cellars.
That’s exactly what the Coastal Custom Wine Cellars team, along with Bella Vita Wine Cellars accomplished with their remarkable project in Dana Point!
They took on the task of creating an impressive glass wine room in a
newly built home, fulfilling the homeowner’s desire to have it nestled in the corner of their living room. Dive into this article to uncover the fascinating details of this extraordinary and awe-inspiring custom wine room!
How Wine Cellar Lighting Enhanced the Elegance of the Glass Wine Cellars
When it comes to having a home wine cellar, every aspect of your wine room needs to be visually appealing and well-organized since everything will be on display. While the selection of wine racks plays a crucial role in the cellar’s design, choosing the right lighting can make a significant difference.
In the case of this glass wine cellar in Dana Point, Orange County, we opted for LED wine cellar lighting walls for the upper portion. This innovative wine cellar involves installing LED light panels behind white acrylic boards. The result is a sophisticated and smooth glow when the LED lights are switched on, thanks to the acrylic boards effectively diffusing the modern LED lights.
These acrylic boards are truly impressive because of their ability to be customized for accommodating metal wine peg racks. We created holes in the boards where the pegs could fit, and surprisingly, the boards held up remarkably well even when we loaded the wine rack with heavy wine bottles.
This elegant wine cellar lighting design truly enhances the beauty of the wine collection and the cellar itself. We are thrilled to introduce this new wine cellar lighting technology to more glass wine cellars across California, whether they are in residential or commercial settings. Get ready to witness the stunning transformation this lighting can bring to your wine room!
Custom Wine Racks Crafted for All Types of Wine Cellars
To enhance the modern and subtly lit ambiance of this walk-in glass wine closet, we carefully integrated two distinct types of wine racking. The lower half of the walls features a wooden wine-racking system, while the upper half showcases sleek metal wine peg racking.
Crafted from Alderwood, the custom wooden wine rack was meticulously stained and finished with lacquer. It boasts compartments designed to accommodate both standard-sized wines (750ml) and magnum wines (>750ml). By combining high-reveals, horizontal shelves, and diamond bins, we created a comprehensive wooden wine rack that can hold a significant number of bottles, especially with the triple deep horizontal racks.
For the metal wine peg rack, we selected chrome-finished, stainless-steel pegs. Each pair of pegs can securely hold three standard-sized wine bottles. These pegs offer a minimalist yet modern aesthetic. They pair perfectly with the acrylic LED light design, as they occupy minimal space, allowing the bottles to steal the spotlight.
To make a bold statement, we installed an open-metal box at the center of the rack, designed to accommodate a grand 6-liter wine bottle. These display boxes can also be customized according to your preferences and the available space.
The combination of metal and wooden racks in this glass wine room, along with the stunning state-of-the-art lighting design, truly sets this contemporary wine cellar apart. It exudes an air of sophistication and serves as a captivating showcase for your wine collection.
Wine Cellar Cooling System and Insulation
When it comes to having a glass wine cellar, it’s important to consider that glass conducts heat rapidly. To prevent moisture buildup on the glass panels caused by outside heat, it is necessary to add additional layers of material or coating. For this purpose, we utilize tempered glass that is at least ½ inch thick.
Tempered glass is highly effective in minimizing fogging and preventing moisture formation, regardless of the temperature difference between the inside and outside of the cellar. It proves to be an excellent choice for glass wine cellars.
To further enhance insulation throughout the entire room, we installed a vapor barrier behind the non-glass sections of the cellar. Vapor barriers play a crucial role in preventing moisture from penetrating through wooden or cement walls. This is particularly vital in areas with high humidity or frequent rainfall.
The level of insulation required also depends on the type of cooling system you prefer. In this particular cellar, we opted for HS’s ducted wine cooling unit. Ducted units are ideal for smaller wine cellars as they occupy minimal indoor space. They are also easy to control, allowing you to maintain the perfect cooling temperature for your valuable wine collection.
By taking these factors into consideration and implementing appropriate measures, you can ensure that your glass wine cellar remains properly insulated and protected, preserving the quality of your wines for years to come.
