Technical Tuesday Episode #435: Strong Statements With Dark Walnut Stain

July 16th, 2019

Sunny July greetings, Tech Tuesday buddies! It’s such a wonderful time to be visiting some wine destinations, don’t you think? But you can also bring old wine country charm to your homes as well, just like our client from Atlanta, GA. Their custom home wine cellar is a beauty and we want to share the deets with you:

Project # 312363
Wood: Custom / Premium Redwood
Bottle Capacity: 1504
Where: Atlanta, GA

Strong statements in Dark Walnut stainThis wine cellar project is quite a generous one with a storage capacity for over 1500 bottles. Our clients had ample space for a full blown wine cellar and wanted to really maximize the same. So our design team was smart enough to decide on going the custom route. Custom racking units made it very convenient in designing the cellar to the clients’ exact specifications. As you may notice from these photos, there is tons of bottle storage in a variety of racking styles:

Gorgeous bold colors on the racksNow what really defines this wine cellar is actually the wood and stain option combination. The racking assembly presents strong statements with the darker hues, accentuated by the lighting accessories. Our team chose Premium Redwood for the wood and stained the racks in beautiful Dark Walnut. Dark Walnut is a rich golden-brown stain that deepens almost all shades of wood. Since Premium Redwood retains stains and finishes extremely well, it worked perfectly with this stain option:

One of the big advantages of custom racking is that you can create racking arrangements to fit any space. Everything will be streamlined to fit the desired specifications. The result is a clean arrangement, devoid of awkward gaps. Moreover, it also helps that the racks are dressed up in a uniform stain or finish. WCI provides an Interactive Wood Swatch Viewer that allows you to see samples of various wood and stain/finish combinations. This is a very handy tool that can help clients decide which look they really want for their wine cellar projects. *Cheers*
