No, you don’t need to undergo an expensive reno to give your wine cellar a different theme. There are ways to achieve a whole new look without dipping into your retirement savings. We’re going to talk about that today! More specifically, we’re going to show you guys how to put a vintage flair on your wine cellar. The vintage vibe is super popular and is a great way to give a standard wine room more character.
The principle is actually a lot similar to renovating a house. If you don’t want to spend a fortune, then just change up a certain section that will have a significant style impact. The flooring is certainly one of these sections. Notice how a lot of home renos start with the flooring. It’s pretty much the same with a wine cellar. You just have to be a little more meticulous with your choice of materials. Your flooring has to help out with maintaining the ideal storage conditions of the wine cellar. That way, you get to save on overall cost, especially with your wine refrigeration system. So we recommend going for our Vintage Wine Barrel flooring for that perfect vintage touch! It’s made from reclaimed wood components from wine barrels. Your flooring will be a unique work of art, with no two planks exactly alike.
Give your racks and furniture a brand-new finish…
Never underestimate the power of newly stained and/or finished wine racks! It’s like dressing them up in brand new clothing to give your wine cellar a totally fresh look. Since we’re going the vintage route, there are specific finishes that can achieve this for us. One of our favorites is the Dusty Weathered Finish. This will make your wood achieve a timeworn look. This works particularly well with pine, redwood and oak. If you want a solid, darker color to your wood, then try the Dark Weathered Finish. Another wonderful option would be the Distressed Finish. The wood is strategically gouged, dented and scratch to give it the character of an old used pieces of furniture. The result is something very classic, very “antique” and reminiscent of “old-country.”
If you don’t have a tabletop/countertop, then it’s time to add one. You can create a nice tasting or prep station in your wine cellar. It will also be a terrific spot to showcase your beautiful stemware. WCI also carries the Vintage Wine Barrel option for our tabletops and countertops. They will make for the perfect pairing with your Vintage Wine Barrel flooring. But you can also go for full length wood tabletops. Select from our stock wood options, as well as select hardwoods from our non-stock wood inventory. ^_^
