Transitional Wine Cellars: Innovative Solution for Wine Collections
We recently completed a wine cellar project for a remarkable home in Irvine, Orange County. Our passionate team combined glass and wood elements to develop a sophisticated design perfect for this modern residential space.
We built the residential wine room in between the dining area and the kitchen. With expertise and creativity, we came up with a custom wine cellar design intended for storing 616 bottles.
Our goals include creating modern glass wine cellars and innovative storage rooms that would highlight the client’s prized wine collection using attractive wine racks, dramatic lighting, and an efficient wine cellar cooling unit.
Custom Wine Racks with Aesthetics and Functionality in Irvine, Orange County
Designing custom wine racks requires the help of a professional who has extensive knowledge in creating attractive and functional wine storage systems.
The team always wants to meet and exceed every client’s expectations. In this particular project, we utilized wood for the wine racks. Wood has a timeless appeal that makes it a good material for creating elegant custom home wine cellars.
The wine racks are made from Alder, a wood species popular because of its many advantages. Alder is often compared to a chameleon because of its ability to mimic other hardwoods or even metal when the correct stain is applied.
Wooden wine racks made from Alder exhibit beautiful patterns when unstained. However, in this installation project, we applied black stain and lacquer on the wood to create a rustic look. The color of the racking creates a contrast with the brown back wall panels.
Wine Rack Configurations: Creating an Eye-Catching Modern Glass Wine Cellar While Maximizing the Storage Capacity
We aim to create attractive innovative wine cellars while maximizing the space. Despite the small space, our experts in custom wine cellar design came up with a wine cellar space for 616 bottles. We incorporated various racking styles to add character to the wine room.
Upon entering the residential wine cellar, you will see three levels of high-revel display rows on the middle section of the back wall.
We added a channel above these display rows to create a good source of wine cellar lighting. LED lights were installed above them to illuminate the bottles downward.
We also included individual wine racks and cubicles for case storage at the top section of the racking. The client can place wooden cases in case storage or just the bottles with the cap facing out. The bottom section consists of Y-shaped wine racks intended for storing 750ml bottles in a cork-forward orientation.
On the leftmost side of the racking on the back wall, we installed a horizontal display column wine rack that can be viewed when you walk from the kitchen or the front doors.
The bottles rest on the shelves securely, preventing them from falling out. We also added a small tabletop to provide a place for serving and drinking wines.
On the right wall, we installed another 3-level high reveal display rows, case storage bins, and Y-shaped wine racks. The end racking is also a horizontal column display rack that is visible from the dining area.
Installing a Wine Cellar Cooling Unit from a Trusted Manufacturer
A reliable wine cooling system is a requirement in building refrigerated custom wine cellars. It has a significant role in creating a stable environment perfect for wine aging.
It is best to seek the help of a knowledgeable wine refrigeration specialist to ensure the correct choice and installation of the equipment.
At Bella Vita Wine Cellars, we always make sure that we utilize the right type of climate control system in every wine room we build. Moreover, proper sizing is also crucial.
We always perform a heat load calculation to determine the correct BTUs needed for your wine cellar, considering the amount of glass used and heat sources near your wine room.
For this particular project, we installed a wine cooling system from Wine Guardian Refrigeration Systems. The unit is well-engineered to provide maximum cooling efficiency based on the size and location of the wine cellar.
Insulated Glass Door and Walls with Luxurious Touches
Glass wine cellar doors and walls created sophistication and elegance in residential wine cellars. Keep in mind that wine cellars must be installed by an expert because there are special requirements for manufacturing and installation. It will ensure that your doors will function effectively and help protect your wine collection from damage.
The team knows and understands the vital role of insulating wine cellar doors in the proper preservation of your wines. Correct insulation will help achieve the optimum wine storage conditions, helping your wine cooling unit function efficiently. A lack of insulation will force your refrigeration unit to work harder and may cause system breakdown.
