Classy Modern Home Wine Cellar with Standout Features
A classy modern home wine cellar was built by a team of master builders in Los Angeles, California. The homeowners are a married couple who love wine and alcohol. Their different preferences had an impact on the final design created by Coastal Custom Wine Cellars, one of our partners in wine room construction. Read on to learn more about the outstanding features of this wine cellar.
Inspiring Modern Home Wine Cellar: Incorporating Outstanding Features into the Design
When building a wine cellar, aesthetic quality and functionality are important factors to consider. Working with a professional like Coastal Custom Wine Cellars will ensure all your requirements are met. Led by Steve Pantalemon, the team offers innovative wine storage solutions for every space and budget.
In one of their projects, they helped a married couple build their dream modern wine cellar to life. The husband like spirits, while his wife enjoys wines.
The Coastal team decided to create a design for a custom wine display that could accommodate the various bottles in the client’s collection. The final design was impressive and transformed the space into a showpiece. They combined metal and glass elements, resulting in a luxurious-looking wine cellar.
Designing Metal Wine Racks Perfect for a Modern Home Wine Cellar
The wine storage system has a significant impact on the overall appearance and functionality of a wine cellar. Therefore, it is best to work with a builder with the creativity and knowledge necessary to create the most suitable design for your wine room. At Coastal Custom Wine Cellars, they interview our client’s to know their needs and incorporate them into the design.
They always want every wine room they build to add aesthetic value to a space and make the owners happy seeing a beautiful display of their collection inside their home.
Stylish Wine Display with Metal Wine Pegs
Upon entering the living room, you will be impressed by the modern home wine cellar. The top section consists of metal wine pegs that hold the bottles securely.
Steve and his team created a racking design that would maximize the storage capacity of the wine room. They utilized triple-deep peg wine racks supplied by Wine Cellar Designers Group (WCDG). Each pair of metal pegs can hold three bottles.
The glossy finish of the wine pegs bounced the light back to the wine bottles, creating a dramatic illumination of the wine cellar. The label-forward orientation of the racking shows the wine labels, allowing the owners and their guests to read the wine description easily.
The left and right sections of the modern wine display are separated by a wooden shelf that provides storage for a few bottles and a tabletop for decanting wine. The bottom section has a custom wooden racking that goes well with the metal wine racks.
Wine Cellar Lighting
The lighting system in your wine cellar has a significant impact on the overall mood and appeal of your wine room. Working with an expert will ensure that the type and placement of the lights will create a striking appeal.
In this project, Coastal Custom Wine Cellars installed an LED lighting system, a safe lighting option known for its low heat emission. The LED light panel was placed at the back of the racking, emphasizing the beautiful display of the bottles.
There is a 3/4” acrylic board to sandwich the LED lighting behind it. The panels have a subdued look when the lights are off. However, you will be impressed with the beauty of the wine cellar when the lights are on.
Steve and his team also added LED lighting to highlight the husband’s liquor collection in a specific area within the racking.
Glass Wine Cellar Door and Walls
The front glass allows the ‘floating’ wine display to be viewed from outside the modern home wine cellar. Coastal Custom Wine Cellars used thermally insulated glass panels to prevent condensation build-up inside the climate-controlled wine room. They also used metal frames to enclose the glass panels and added insulation materials to the channel between the metal frames to prevent wine storage issues.
Wine Cellar Cooling System: How Master Builders Dealt with a Challenge
The wine room is located in an area where it is exposed to sunlight most times of the day, which can affect the storage conditions inside the wine cellar. Too much heat can cause extreme temperature fluctuations and varying humidity levels, damaging the quality of the wines.
Calculating the heat load is a crucial step in building wine cellars. It helps determine the BTUs needed for a wine room, helping Los Angeles wine cellar builders determine the correct size and type of wine cooling system for each project.
After performing a heat load calculation, Coastal Custom Wine Cellars decided to install a wine cooling unit suitable for the location and size of the wine cellar, as well as the amount of glass used in the wine room. They installed WhisperKOOL 7000, a split-type wine refrigeration unit designed for wall mount installation.
The components are located separately. The evaporator was installed in a soffit and concealed, while the condenser was places on the roof. Only the vent, which can be found at the entrance of the wine cellar, is visible inside the wine room.
