When you think about remodeling your home, you may think of updating the bathrooms or the kitchen, but how about a custom wine cellar? Not only will this increase the value you of your home, but you will also be the designated house for all parties and events. Beach Realty and Construction recently built a custom wine cellar for a client, and here are some of the cool features they included in their design!
Temperature Controlled Room
The area behind the glass is a temperature controlled room with storage for 60 display bottles, and 298 bottles to be placed in the racks. Having the room temperature controlled helps the wine in the aging process.
The floors are made from wine barrels. The barrels vary in color, texture, and some have print on them. Although the color scheme of the room is darker, the lighter pieces of wood make a nice contrast.
Lighting is important to any room in your home, and while you may want your wine cellar to be as dark as possible, you can opt for mood lighting. What we have done here is we placed several sconces around the room, and lights around the copper ceiling tiles. The tiles help bounce off the light, and create a glow in the room.
Our client also wanted to be able to use this room for entertaining, and as a bar area in general. In this room we have included bar stools with seating, a wet bar with a sink for cleanup with tools like a lemon and lime squeezer and bottle opener. There is also a flat screen, and an area where a small loveseat couch can go. Storage is also important for liquor bottles, so we placed a hutch next to the wet bar area.
