An Illuminating Experience With Custom LED Lighting

January 16th, 2013

If you’re not a wine cellar specialist, you can’t help but overlook some of the essential details when undertaking a custom wine cellar project. It’s only natural, though. Most of us are inclined to think that it’s just all about having the right wine racks, wine cooling units, and furniture. Indeed, these are the major elements when building a custom wine cellar. However, these are not the only things that count! You also have to consider right accents such as your custom wine cellar lighting.

Why it’s so important!

Why is it necessary to have the right lighting package installed in your custom wine cellars? Note that the word is “necessary.” We can give you three compelling reasons for this. First off, it will allow you to highlight your prized collection and display each bottle to maximum advantage. Keep in mind that your wine cellar is not just for storage purposes. It’s also for properly displaying your collection. But keeping your bottles in a poorly lighted space doesn’t do anything for them at all, don’t you agree? Second, it also enables you to organize and locate your bottles more efficiently. This is especially convenient for those with extensive and growing collections. Imagine what a hassle it would be scouring your cellar for vintages you want to pour because it’s lighted so poorly.

The third reason would be because of purely aesthetic purposes. Knowing how to play around with your lighting elements can allow you to create a number of moods for your wine cellar. It can also let you experiment with different looks. For example, you can choose to have a sultry aura by placing your LED display lighting fixtures in strategic locations. Or you can go for a visually stimulating appeal by putting the spotlight on your custom wine cellar ceilings with recessed LED Downlights. Then again, you might also want a romantic theme which you can easily achieve by playing around with Fluorescent Slimlites and stained glass. Glass and light combinations on custom wine cellars are highly popular and you can come up with so many designs using various decorative applications.

Last but not the least, LED lighting is also utilized to highlight not just your wine bottles, but also your wine racks, furniture, and other accessories as well. For example, you can bring more attention to an exquisite piece of wine cellar art by placing it in a beautifully lighted Archway. Or, you can accentuate the gorgeous color of your wood wine racks whether these are stained or not with a linear LED display lighting system. Indeed, there is just so much to gain from the right custom wine cellar lighting package that you cannot just make it an after-thought. So why not talk with our specialists today and make your project a more illuminating experience! ^_^
