Wine cellars are carefully designed and constructed to shelter wine collectibles against harmful external influences, while providing a glimpse into the lifestyle and personality of the wine collector. The interior appearance of a residential wine cellar is just as important as its overall infrastructure. Most wine cellar builders take a collaborative approach when developing a design for their clients, as this allows them to capture the essence of each individual, while creating the best possible storage environment.
There are four essential components to consider in wine cellar design and wine cellar construction: room size, wine racking solutions, the type of cooling system, and the type of wood material. These components will help determine the overall design and appearance of the custom wine cellar and decide the best possible way to display and manage the wine collection. Let’s take a look at two recently completed residential wine cellars New Jersey projects.
Residential Wine Cellars New Jersey Project in Short Hills
The residential wine cellars project involves converting a small room into a fully functional wine room, and upgrading an existing wine room to include an entertainment area. The wood material of choice for both projects is premium redwood.
Premium redwood is a favorite among wine collectors, because of the wood variety’s unparalleled beauty. It has color variations that deepen over time, from white, to pink, to reddish brown. The material is naturally resistant to decay and extremely durable.
The residential wine cellars New Jersey project in Short Hills has a depth of 152 inches and a width of 53 inches. A combination of single bottle racks with a high reveal display row and open diamond bins were used to maximize the storage space. Since the custom wine racks only occupied the left side wall, it created enough space to maneuver on the right side.
Custom wine racks with a lattice design using 1” x 2” redwood slats were created to allow proper air circulation in and around the wine bottles. The top row consisted of individual bottle storage that could fit most standard size wine bottles and down below are diamond bins for storing large format bottles. The back wall features a tabletop with additional storage for smaller wine bottles.
For this residential wine cellars Short Hills, New Jersey project, the client chose unfinished premium redwood. The natural beauty of the material blended well with the subtle interior and simple wine cellar design of the custom wine room.
The client was very pleased with the end result of the wine cellar construction and design project; he commended the Coastal team for their professionalism and efficiency. Although there were items that came in damaged, the team was able to replace the damaged parts in no time. Despite the geographic constraints, they were able to accomplish things through phone and email.
Residential Wine Cellars New Jersey Project in Freehold
Another residential wine cellars New Jersey project made use of premium redwood for their custom wine racks to increase storage capacity to 2,247 wine bottles. The original wine cellar design and wine cellar construction in this Freehold, New Jersey custom wine room was done by Coastal Custom Wine Cellars over 5 years ago. The client enlisted their services once more to create a display room that could double as an entertainment area.
To showcase the client’s vast wine collection, different wine cellar design elements were combined with the original wine displays to create a visually enticing storage solution. Among these are single bottle racks with universal openings that can hold 750 ml bottles, a high reveal display row with a 15 degree tilt to allow for clear visibility of the client’s finest liquid collectibles, and a horizontal display underneath that, facilitating a label forward display for wine bottles.
Additional features include a beautiful arched opening with a tabletop, a beveled glass door cabinet, a pair of drawers, and a striking full height peninsular horizontal display that exhibits the bottles sideways, with the labels in full view. Elegant furniture and accessories that complement the stunning racking solutions dot the interior of the wine room.
Glass walls surround this impressive residential wine cellars Freehold, New Jersey project. The combination of natural stone, rock walls, premium redwood storage and display solutions make for an aesthetically pleasing view of the interior.
