WCI Inspirations: Luxurious Wine Cellars Sans Luxurious Cost

October 12th, 2016

Why spend a fortune on a wine cellar project to achieve a luxurious look when you can do it at a reasonable cost? Sounds daunting? We anticipated that reaction! That’s why we’ve come up with today’s WCI Inspirations to shed light on the matter – because luxurious-looking wine cellars don’t require you to rob the bank.

Let's start with your wine cellar space...

Let’s start with your wine cellar space…

Naturally, we’ll have to start with the space in your home where you’ll actually be building your “luxury” wine cellar. Does it have to be a huge space? Definitely not! If you don’t have enough floor area in your home for a formal wine room, there are so many alternatives available as we’ve discussed in several blog posts in the pasts. Perhaps the most popular one would be to undergo a closet transformation. That’s right! Just because you’re going for a wine cellar closet doesn’t mean you can’t make it elegant. Just take a look at the number of closet transformations at our photo gallery, each one more stunning than the next.

Then move on to the wine racks...

These days, there are a whole lot more wine racking options to choose from. If you want to go with wood wine racks, there are actually wood options that can give you better value per bottle. This is especially convenient when you’re working on a budget. For example, you should check out Rustic Pine as a wood option because it offers not just quality material but an amazing price point as well. Rustic Pine will give your cellar that beautiful, old-country feel that so vintage and elegant. But, if you’re keen on spending just a very specific amount on your wine cellar project, you can also choose to go with metal wine racks or other materials such as acrylic. These wine racks are sturdy, easy to assemble, and can go anywhere in your home, not just your wine cellars. Wine pegs and wine rails are one of our favorites from this category because they add a contemporary but ¬†classy feel to any wine cellar project, particularly when combined with glass elements.

Last but certainly not the least, you have your wine cellar accessories. These can be your floors, ceilings, lighting, stain and finish options, cabinet hardware, windows, doors, and so on. If you want to accomplish a luxurious look for your wine cellar without having to spend a fortune, the key to this is diligent research. Compare various materials and products and see how they measure up in terms of quality and cost. For example, cork floors won’t cost as much as marble-tiled ones, but they exude a classy vintage feel. Glass-enclosed wine cellars for small projects won’t actually cost as much, but the elegance factor is definitely an A+.
