Glass-enclosed wine cellars are, no doubt, inherently elegant. You can’t go wrong with a glass-enclosed design, that’s for sure. But there are still ways that you can improve on that design and make your wine cellar even more turnkey. Here are some terrific concepts on how to level up on your glass-enclosed wine cellar game:
Let’s start with the choice of wine racks. Metal wine racks have always been a popular combo with glass elements in wine cellar projects. But while metal wine racks are indeed timeless, they can also be a bit predictable. So why not explore another option that will add an extra layer or two of character to your wine storage? Our recommendation: Arcylic Wine Racks. Acrylic is a beautiful material that is just as transparent as glass. Just imagine the result when you work these two together. If the bottles will seem like they’re floating on the metal wine racks, what more when they are nestled in transparent acrylic ones.
But let’s say you’re the type who really favors metal racking over anything else. What you can do in this case is explore the various finish options. A top favorite of ours is the Satin Black finish from the Vintage View series. Pair it up with glass-enclosed panels with black trim to get a show-stopping design with a modern flair. Another terrific option would be to go for custom colors. Did you know that you can have custom finishes on your metal racking units? Our Vintage View racks can be dressed up with bold pops of color such as Copper, Lime, and Rustic Red.
Lighting and flooring accents on glass-enclosed wine cellars is another clever way to bring them to another level. Recessed lighting can highlight your collection, as well as your wine racks. LED Downlights, on the other hand, work extremely well with wine displays. As for the flooring, experimenting with different materials can do wonders. Some of them really shine when incorporated into glass elements. One example is Mosaic flooring. Mosaic is made entirely by hand with a unique blend of antique fine china, stained glass, and porcelain tiles. This type of flooring will add a beautiful artistic touch to your glass-enclosed wine storage. Hand-painted tile is another flooring material that is super attractive. Glass panels will be able to showcase these tiles and turn your wine cellar into a real showstopper. ^_^
