We Make It Happen With Wine Cellar Design Ideas

November 25th, 2015

Building a wine cellar is really a creative process rather than a mere technical one. Sure, you basically put together a wine racking assembly and it’s no rocket science. However, that’s not all there is to it. With a wine cellar, no matter the size and shape of it, it’s not just all about “assembling” but also about “designing.” The aesthetic aspect of a wine cellar project matters and will always matter because your total satisfaction of the end results depends a lot on the visual outcome as well.

That being said, it’s our pleasure to share with you these wine cellar construction ideas that will make your project twice as fun to build. With the help of WCI’s varied selection of wine cellar accents, you’ll not only be putting together your wine racks but giving them the essential artistic touches as well.


Let’s start off with some decorative wood trim. Now you’ve heard us point out more than once on this blog just how essential a role custom moldings play in a wine racking assembly. They help blend in any gaps between the wine racks, and the ceiling and flooring, giving your wine cellar a neat and finished look. But did you know that you can also play around with these moldings, design-wise? With some choice Decorative Moldings, you can actually add more detail and high relief to the interior trim of your wine cellar.  You can also do the same with other aspects of your wine cellar such as with wood paneling, wood onlays, wood grille covers, and more.



Speaking of wood paneling, that brings us to another decorative element in your wine cellar project – your wine cellar cabinets. Spice up those standard storage cabinets with custom panel doors! A very popular choice would be the Raised Panel Cabinet Doors since they are simple and elegant. But if you want a little more flair, try a Glass Panel Cabinet Door with custom etchings. Glass etchings give off a delicate charm and will accentuate your display of glassware really well. You can also go for Hand-Carved Panel Cabinet Doors or those with Wood Borders and Onlays. Still, there are also those who’d prefer a rocking combo of form and function in which case, transforming your standard cabinets into a Cigar Humidor would certainly be a clever move.


And now for the last designing a wine cellar tip: putting in custom wine cellar lighting! We cannot over-emphasize the importance of this design element. Custom lighting can highlight both your wine racks and bottles on display. With the right kind of wine cellar lighting, you can also create the most suitable mood for your wine room. For example, Recessed LED Downlights can spotlight your custom wine cellar ceiling while a linear LED Display lighting system will help accent your wine display racks and archways. On the other hand, if you have stained glass or other decorative applications in your wine cellar, Fluorescent Slimlites will illuminate these perfectly.
