Whether you are a wine collector, or merely wish to show your friends your wine collection, then a custom residential wine room is what you need. Custom wine cellars can be constructed in any available space within your house. While keeping your collection of wines at the desired temperature for consumption, you may also improve the visual design of the storage room itself, and entertain your guests while surrounded by your wine collection.
Collaborating with Design Rescue LA
Catherine Lamson, from Design Rescue LA, has joined with Coastal Custom Wine Cellars, to help create a stunning and interesting wine rack design and construction. In collaboration with Catherine, the Coastal Custom Wine Cellars team will be creating a 3D design portfolio, with which to show their clients the various wine cellar types available to suit their needs.
The three dimensional design provided by Coastal Custom Wine Cellars shows the multiple angles of the wine room. Also, for the clients to get an overview of what is best suited for the available space in their home before the installation begins.
For a past project, the Beverly Hills wine cellar design and construction process began in January and March of the year 2014, and was completed in June 2014. As for the design of the wine cellar, the Coastal Team proposed an area measuring 13’ wide x 4’ deep x 8’ height, and made use of a unified glass wall to further highlight the bottle of wines collected by the owner.
The Wine Racking System from Iron Wine Cellars
In the construction of the wine rack design by Coastal, Mahogany was used for wine cellar racks, with a chestnut stain and satin finish. To prevent breakage and damage, there is a 4-inch toe kick base underneath the racking system, which elevates the wine cellar unit several inches from the floor, coupled with base moldings for aesthetic appeal.
The Beverly Hills residential wine room is made with a new level of wine cellar designs. There is an open tabletop area in the top half of the wine cellar, so anyone can easily open and enjoy their bottle of wine. Respectively, a single bottle for storage measures around 3 3/4” x 3 3/4”, and can accommodate 750 ml bottles.
LED lighting is also installed, to illuminate the client’s wines. This type of lighting also enhances the overall aesthetics of the residential wine room, and minimizes power consumption.
The ease of retrieval and selection of wine bottles is made possible by several inches of horizontal openings, which display the bottles in a forward orientation. Two bottles can be stored in each opening, thereby contributing nicely to the total wine bottle capacity of the residential wine room. The bottom of the wine rack design also features more separate storage bottle openings.
The individual rectangular openings of the racking system serve as bulk storage, or may accommodate wood cases. The wine rack system features a total of 22 magnum (1.5L) bottle openings from left to right, thus adding more to the storage capacity and providing flexibility in wine collecting.
The Wine Cellar Refrigeration System from Arctic
Arctic Metalworks provided the refrigeration system for the Beverly Hills residential wine room. The refrigeration unit is an Arctic Aire split type. This innovation in split system refrigeration equipment can be remotely installed, encourage quiet and efficient operation. The unit was installed to maintain and achieve the desired temperature for wine storage within the space.
For this wine rack design extension, the evaporator unit of the atmosphere control framework is mounted just over the tabletop. With a specific end goal to hide the refrigeration supplies from view, it is secured by an operable louvered grill. The grill is built from the same wood as the wine racks, so as to blend in.
Also, the grill can be opened and shut, for ease of access when it comes to cleaning and support. A consistent glass divider and door provides a stunning view of the wines.
Configuration Rescue LA has had years of involvement in making outline answers for private redesigns. They give development drawings, furniture and fabric determinations, and improve lighting details, pipes, and apparatus particulars. The community oriented exertion between Coastal Custom Wine Cellars and Design Rescue LA brought about an exquisite and tasteful private wine enclave.
Building a custom wine room is all about controlling temperature and humidity levels and creating a dedicated space for storing and aging wines for a prolonged period of time.
A wine room that is designed and built properly should consistently maintain the ideal climate conditions for optimum wine storage, and efficiently organize and manage wine collections.
The Creative Minds Behind this Residential Wine Room Project
This recently completed Baltimore, Maryland, residential wine room project shows how bringing together the right components can create a stunning wine cellar space that not only maximizes total bottle capacity but also provides optimum environmental conditions for wine storage.
About Coastal Custom Wine Cellars
Coastal Custom Wine Cellars provides their clients with a free 3-dimensional design package that includes different views and elevations of the proposed wine cellar design.
A 3D illustration shows in detail how every component ties together, and allows the client to make design modifications before green-lighting the project.
Coastal Custom Wine Cellars is a full-service designer, builder, and installer of custom wine cellars. The company also supplies all components of residential and commercial wine cellars, such as climate control systems, wine racking systems, flooring products, and wine cellar entry doors.
Design Specifications for this Custom Wine Cellar
All wine-racking components come in double-deep configurations, to increase the overall bottle capacity of the custom wine cellar. Various wine storage and display solutions were utilized to create a wine storage space that has a total storage capacity of 4,010 wine bottles.
All wine racks were made from architectural grade Heart Redwood, with a satin lacquer topcoat. Additionally, all components rest on a 1 ½” toe-kick that raises the bottles off the floor, protecting them against breakage.
Single bottle storage wine racks with a high reveal display row went around the perimeter of the Baltimore custom wine cellar.
A high-reveal wine display holds bottles at an angle, with the labels facing the front, providing ease of bottle recognition and identification. Aside from the individual cubbyholes for 750 ml wine bottles, the Coastal team also included single bottle openings that can accommodate a total of 136 magnums (or 1.5L).
True radius curved corners are installed in corner areas, in order to maximize every space available in the Baltimore, Maryland, residential wine room. Corner wine racks with a true radius curve provide a smooth transition between walls. Since true radius curved corners are constructed from a single piece of solid wood, they do not exhibit an angled or segmented appearance.
This custom wine cellar features a stunning 66-inch long waterfall display. This custom wine racking provides a cascading appearance that stair steps down to a small tabletop, which can function as a work area for serving or decanting wines. Additional shelves are provided below the tabletop, for storing wine bottles or other wine accoutrements.
This residential wine room project also features a total of 36 wooden case openings that will help manage and organize wood cases. The openings come with roller shelves that allow for ease of access and restocking.
A Barolo-style door was fitted into the entryway to completely seal the residential wine room and enhance the beauty of the space at the same time. To effectively prevent cool air from escaping, a wine cellar door must be weather-stripped on all sides, and equipped with an automatic door bottom.
Additionally, a wine room door must be of exterior grade quality, to prevent warping and shrinkage. If the door has glass components, the glass must be dual-paned, for better insulation properties.
Proper Wine Cooling System for a Beautiful Wine Cellar
A proper wine storage environment requires a temperature range of 50 to 55 degrees Fahrenheit and humidity levels that remain between 60 to 75 percent.
A wine cellar refrigeration system is specially designed to help maintain constant climate conditions. There are various types of climate control systems that can fit the unique needs and requirements of a wine cellar space.
For the Baltimore wine room project, the Coastal team installed a Wine Guardian Model D050. This wine cellar refrigeration system is a self-contained air handler that reliably and efficiently cools areas of up to 3,000 cubic feet. Wine Guardian cooling products are known to be noise-free and energy-efficient.
They also provide remote monitoring controls and sensors that allow the constant monitoring of the wine cellar refrigeration system, to ensure that it is performing at optimal levels.
This collaborative project between Coastal Custom Wine Cellars and Bella Vita Wine Cellars created a beautiful and elegant space that is not only ideal for storing and aging wines but also for showcasing the client’s many vintages. For this particular project, the Coastal team handled all wall preparation and installation of wine room components, while Lou handled the design aspect of the wine room.

Creative innovations in residential wine cellar and construction help build an efficient climate control wine storage space, that is functional and aesthetically pleasing at the same time.
Using unique construction materials and design elements, as well as integrating custom-designed artwork, can greatly enhance the interior of a wine cellar space.
The recently completed Coto de Caza wine cellar conversion project in Orange County, California, demonstrates how wine cellar innovations by Coastal Custom Wine Cellars made wonderful changes to a small closet space under the stairs.
The custom design created a unique and elegant wine room that provides optimum wine storage capacity. This particular project converts an under-the-stairwell closet into a 404-bottle capacity custom wine room.
Wine Cellar Innovations for this Residential Wine Room Orange County
- efficient custom wine room design for a small closet under the stairs
- maximized wine storage space – 404 bottle capacity
- wine cellar artwork – painting by impressionist Janina Pazdan
- cooperage wine barrel flooring
- label forward wine racks
- high reveal bottle display with LED lighting system
- x-bins and square bins for bulk wine storage
- mini split wine cellar refrigeration system
- double paned glass wine cellar door
Janina Pazdan’s Artwork on the Walls
What really makes the Coto de Caza residential wine room project stand out is the faux painting integrated into its interior walls, which was created by master impressionist artist Janina Pazdan.
The artist did a beautiful grapevine-themed design that provided a distinct appearance and lent a unique character to the custom wine cellar.
Janina Pazdan was born and raised in Poland. She finished her studies at The Academy of Fine Arts, where she spent a decade honing her skills in drawing, oil painting, pottery art, and sculpting.
Her impressionistic style is mostly influenced by several impressionist masters, such as Diego Velazquez, Edward Monet, Vincent Van Gogh, Edgar Degaz, and Henre Toulouse-Lautrec.
Sustainable Material for the Flooring
Aside from the grapevine-themed painting, the cooperage wine barrel flooring is another
wine cellar innovation idea that was added to the residential wine room. This flooring material is made out of reclaimed oak wine barrel components.
Reclaimed cooperage flooring displays stampings and markings of the corresponding winery.
Since no two barrel components are the same, recycled oak barrel flooring not only creates a distinguished look, but also brings a nostalgic vibe to the residential wine room.
The rustic appearance of the cooperage wine barrel flooring blends well with the Chappo-stained Philippine mahogany wine racking systems.
Although this traditional wine cellar had very limited space, the right combination of custom wine racks helped maximize the storage capacity of the small, L-shaped wine room.
Label Forward Wine Bottle Orientation
The left interior wall of the residential wine room Orange County custom wine room deep horizontal label forward wine racks in a stair step down design, to accommodate the change in ceiling height.
Horizontal wine racks lay the bottles sideways, and not only offer clear visibility of wine labels, but also help prevent the cork from drying out, by keeping it in constant contact with the wine.
The enclosure to the Coto de Caza wine closets project is tall enough for anyone to maneuver around, but it quickly drops to a height of 64 inches.
Beyond the enclosure is the back wall, that features a combination of single bottle storage racks with display rows and X-bins.
Openings for single bottle wine racks measure 3 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ which can hold just about any bottle size into the slots.
15-Degree Angle Wine Bottle Display with Lighting Effects
The display row has a high reveal feature that pitches wine bottles to a 15-degree angle, which allows wine collectors to showcase some of their favorite wine labels.
Wines can be stored above and below the display area, which makes this wine racking system an ideal tool for organizing and managing wine bottles.
Additionally, LED lighting is installed along the display row, which illuminates bottles that are on display, giving a dramatic effect.
Stylish Wine Bins
A series of X-bins are provided below for bulk storage. Bin components can accommodate a large number of bottles of different sizes.
Wine bottles are simply stacked on top of each other, which provides plenty of storage room for multiple bottles.
Additional single bottle openings and open bin storage are installed at the end wall, which is nestled deep in the back of the wine storage space. Square bins are ideal for storing wines in bulk or case lots.
The end wall wine racking is smaller compared to the rest of the wine racks in the cellar because the installers had to create an opening in the space right above it to accommodate the wine cellar refrigeration system.
Platinum Mini Split Wine Cellar Refrigeration System
A WhisperKOOL Platinum Mini Split system was installed to help maintain temperature and humidity at constant levels.
This wine cellar refrigeration system is compact, which makes it ideal for small wine rooms.
The noisiest part of the refrigeration equipment, which is the condensing unit, was placed in a remote location, providing efficient and whisper quiet operation. The evaporator is installed inside the custom wine room.
Double Paned Glass Door with Wrought Iron Gate
The entryway for this wine cellar conversion project is a custom-designed Seville wine cellar door with double pane glass. It features an operable wrought iron gate with grapevine detailing. Since the iron gate is operable, it has a latch that can be opened and closed for easy cleaning and maintenance.
