All Things Bright And Beautiful

November 14th, 2011

Once upon a time in grammar school, our teacher taught us this poem which incidentally, was the same poem taught to my brother and now my daughter in toddler school:

“All things bright and beautiful

All creatures great and small,

All things wise and wonderful

The Lord God made them all”

Well, this has really nothing to do with poem but the first line just triggered an inspiration for a blog post. Also, I’ve been wandering around downtown a lot lately and walking into commercial wine cellars by force of habit (somehow, I just get drawn in!) which made me notice a few things. One of them is the sad fact that a lot of commercial wine cellars here seem so drab and gloomy despite the seemingly lush interior. Then it hit me: the lighting was off! Literally!

Brighten up your world…

Whether you own a residential or commercial wine cellar, there’s one thing you should keep in mind: never underestimate the power of a good wine cellar lighting set-up. The right wine cellar lighting increases the aesthetic value of your wine cellar in more ways than one. In residential wine cellars, it’s all about enhancing the ambience of a custom wine cellar, making it more attractive and appealing. But in commercial wine cellars, it does more than just that. The proper wine cellar lighting serves to spotlight your most popular merchandise and increase sales activity. It also helps to highlight new products for easier sales promotion.

Because we understand the value of keeping everything “bright and beautiful” in your wine cellars, we endeavored to develop lighting packages that can really meet the desired purposes: illuminate your wine cellars and place the spotlight on your prized collection. In addition, these packages can be used in a stand-alone lighting system or in combination with each other for a more unique wine cellar display. Everything is also scaled to suit the size of your budget, an element that we always factor in with every product we offer.

With custom wine cellar lighting!

LED Downlights

LED Downlights serve to bring about a rich and warm glow to your wine cellars. When positioned strategically, the lighting system is designed to encompass the entire wine cellar by playing upon the chosen materials such as wood and metal. Our recessed LED Downlights carry a voltage of 12, wattage of 3, in warm white color in a 45-degree spread for that cozy atmosphere in your wine cellars. Owing to the tight range of the beam, our downlights appear to give as much as 40 watts of light and rated for 50,000 hours of running time.

LED Display Lighting

To enhance the natural beauty of your wine racking system and the radiance of those wine bottles, we’ve brought you the flexible LED Display Lighting package that gives more value than incandescent. This package sports a lower cost and over seven times the life expectancy with brightness rated for about 50,000 hours (or around 6 years) and will not die out on you or your wine cellars abruptly. You’ll love its flexible construction which you can adhere almost anywhere in your wine cellar, particularly those nooks and crannies that really need a “bright spot,” so to speak. The LED Display lighting package is highly recommended as a backlighting system in crown molding, perfect for archways and high reveals.

Fluorescent Slimlites

Now we all know that wine cellar accessories such as wine cellar art serve to emphasize the beauty, style, and proportion of any wine cellar, but there are ways to improve on them even more. Take for example stained glass art framed in a wine cellar archway. With the right lighting accessories, that piece of art can be showcased to its fullest as you can see from the gorgeous images here:


Fluorescent Slimlites serve exactly that purpose. These bright little wonders are excellent choices for backlighting stained glass archways, etched mirrors, and light boxes in wine cellar ceilings. The direct connectors of the lighting system provide minimal shadows and the plexiglass cover makes for easy, no-fuss cleaning of the bulbs. With the Tri-phosphor lamp, everything is quiet and flicker-free and you’re guaranteed a long bulb life, rated for 10,000 hours.

So why be contented with hiding your prized collection and fabulous wine racking system in the shadows? Turn on the light and make all things bright and beautiful in your wine cellar world by chatting with our design consultants today for the right wine cellar lighting package!
