Technical Tuesday Episode #447: Making The Most Out Of Your Space With Vintage View

October 8th, 2019

A formal wine room is indeed goals. But you don’t need one to create some great wine storage for your collection. If you don’t have room in your home for a full-blown wine cellar, it’s all about making the space that you have work for you. Today’s Tech Tuesday feature shows us how it’s done:

Project # 318937
Wood: Vintage View / Metal
Bottle Capacity: 405
Where: El Paso, TX

Vintage View metal racks in glass-enclosed layoutOur client in El Paso wanted to have enough bottle storage in their home sans the formal wine room. So our design team got to work and put together this pretty amazing set-up. It’s wall-mount storage consisting of the metal racking units from the Vintage View Series. As you can see from the photos, the wall has been sectioned off to accommodate the wine racks. Note that Vintage View offers the racks in single, double, and triple deep configurations. That increases their flexibility, particularly with tighter spaces.

Making the most out of compact spaces

Our design team transformed the wine storage into a glass-enclosed one. This was a clever move since it gives the illusion of a larger space. Of course, it’s also making more points in terms of elegance. Glass and metal are a flawless combination. That’s why more and more glass-enclosed projects are utilizing metal racking units. With Vintage View, you also get several finish options that can work well with any theme: Satin Black, Brushed Nickel, and Chrome Plated. You will also notice that the metal wine racks add a modern touch to the wine storage. Since more and more projects are now going the contemporary route, they are certainly the perfect choice.Generous bottle storage with Vintage ViewIn the last photo above, you can actually see how generous the bottle storage is. This compact cellar can accommodate a little over a hundred bottles! These racks are designed to hold standard sized wine bottles when mounted 7.5 inches apart. But you also have the option of storing split-sized bottles by mounting them 5.5 inches apart. Now while the units are meant to be attached to wall-mounted, you can also choose to display your collection in a floor-to-ceiling layout. A Floor to Ceiling Frame is needed for this and can be purchased separately. *Cheers*
