Authentic Vintage Residential Wine Cellars Design by Our Team of Experts
Adding a vintage-style home wine cellar is an ideal complement for those with a home design aesthetic inspired by 19th-century European concepts. These wine rooms have been designed to replicate traditional wine storage spaces’ features, materials, and styling while still holding purposeful design.
This client had a vast wine collection, so our team at Custom Wine Cellars Los Angeles stepped in to craft them the perfect custom traditional-styled wine room that fits with the home’s modern design. We created a traditional wine storage space that can store up to 4500 bottles – and they couldn’t be happier! They said opening the door was like stepping into an actual vintage winery, with the fresh aromas filling the air.
Designing Residential Wine Cellars with a 4500 Bottle Capacity
The limited room area can be challenging when designing the wine cellar, but we use some clever strategies to keep space requirements at a minimum while maximizing the number of items that can be stored. An example is our double-depth wine rack system.
This design offers twice as much storage capacity without taking up any extra room. Every slot has been optimized for maximum efficiency, and each depth provides 2,200 and 2,300 possible slots, respectively, resulting in 4,500 bottles being able to fit in total.
Just by looking, you wouldn’t be able to tell which type of wine is stored in a particular area. This is why the wine cellar racking system for the home have been divided into sections according to size and type of wine. The lower portion of the wine racks contains cubbyholes with specific height, width, and depth measurements.
One glance is enough to see how meticulous the client was about their wine collection. When it comes to your residence, know that we’ll ensure all of your wine cellar needs are met.
Enhancing the Vintage Wine Room Design with Traditional Wooden Elements
Custom-built wine rooms can be as simple or extravagant as desired. Many regard the installation of one as a mark of distinction and elegance, adding value to the home and providing an ideal platform for showcasing their collection of wines. Opting for residential wine cellars with unique traditional or contemporary designs is often seen as a wise choice that meets all these requirements while also increasing the worth of the property.
This client’s classical-style wine cellar project called for installing a high-capacity wine storage room within their home. There was an emphasis on simplicity and traditional style, with limited lighting and wooden elements adding character to the design. Not even the wine cellar floor was overlooked in this project. The room’s flooring was leveled inside and out and included wine barrel material for the home cellar flooring as part of its unique Early-American style.
Furthermore, an airtight wine cellar door made from Alder wood stained to match the flooring ensured that humidity levels were kept in check. The laminated wine cellar glass door also enabled viewers to observe the craftsmanship done for the wine closet.
Benefits of a Quiet and Efficient Wine Cellar Cooling System
It is a common misconception that an overly loud and bulky wine cellar cooling system is necessary for storing 4,500 bottles of wine. However, this is not the case here. The wine refrigeration system we have installed is highly efficient and operates with minimal noise levels; ideal for sustaining humidity between 60-65%, which is optimal for preserving cork health and quality.
A higher-than-usual humidity level can cause accelerated aging of wines, making it unsuitable for clients who prefer to age their wines before drinking them. On the other hand, if the humidity drops below the 50 percent range, this will dry out corks and potentially ruin pricey collections. Therefore, in some cases, a 70 percent humidity is considered an acceptable rate.
A Noise-Free Wine Room with a Ducted-Cooling Refrigeration System
From inside the wine cellar, no evidence of a loud and intrusive wine cooling unit can be seen. Instead, a ducted-cooling wine refrigeration method was employed, allowing the wine cellar cooling unit to remain out of sight. A metal grille on the wall’s upper portion serves as an air passage to the ducting.
An appealing feature of this traditional custom residential wine room is the ducting’s direct connection between the wine room and the coil on the opposite side of the wall. The ducting ensures that none of the sounds escapes into the area. This guarantees that any noise from outside will not disturb the guests from enjoying their drinks in peace.
