Can you build a luxurious looking wine cellar without having to stretch that budget thin? The answer is a definite yes! When you have enough information on your options, you can get what you want for less. Here are some very useful tips on how to narrow down those choices. Your final picks will be those that can boost your wine cellar’s aesthetic appeal at a price you can afford:
Obviously, your wine racks will take center stage in the wine cellar, next to your collection. Since they will be on of the major focal points, they have to stand out. By standing out, we do not mean that they have to be flashy. On the contrary, your racks should exude quality and style to amplify the elegance factor. That’s why it’s necessary to choose the right wood option. Just because a certain type of wood costs more doesn’t mean you have to go for it. There will be other more reasonable alternatives. In fact, wood options for your racking units are very flexible. Naturally, you’ll have to learn the features of these wood types so you can compare and contrast them. For example, Rustic Pine is a more affordable wood option than Grand Mahogany. But Rustic Pine racks can look super luxurious, especially when stained with certain stains and finishes.
Nothing says classy better than glass. That’s why glass panels, windows, and doors are a very common presence in both residential and commercial construction projects. Glass is a material that accentuates the natural beauty of other materials. Metal is a prime example of this. You can never go wrong with a glass x metal combo. Incorporating this into your wine cellar will really elevate its elegant aura. You can see this in a lot of our Tech Tuesday features. Metal wine racks are usually framed by glass panels in a stunning glass-enclosed storage.
This goes to show just how versatile a material glass is. You can also try experimenting with it for your wine cellar accents. This time, mix it up with black metal trim for a modern yet sophisticated look. For example, instead of the standard French Doors, use black metal to edge out these doors into small windows. Your wine cellar entryways will look more dramatic with the black metal trim. You can do the same with a transom or with a door with sidelights. ^_^
