Technical Tuesday Episode #451: Seamless Proportions With Custom Racking

November 19th, 2019

Nothing beats clean, beautiful lines in a wine cellar project. It’s like that perfectly tailored suit that, of course, comes with a hefty price tag. So if you’re wanting those seamless proportions in your wine cellar, you should be ready to spend for them. But that doesn’t mean you have to go beyond your means. Here at WCI, custom wine racks can give you the wine cellar of your dreams – and without breaking the bank. Today’s Tech Tuesday will show us how it’s done:

Project # 313945
Wood: Custom/ Allheart Redwood
Bottle Capacity: 3042
Where: Kinnelon, NJ

Seamless proportions with custom rackingThis large wine room of client has an impressive bottle capacity of a little over three thousand bottles. The racking units are all custom-made to make full use of the generous space. You can see from the photo above how clean the lines are. There are no gaps in between the racks, flooring, and ceiling. And speaking of the racks, there is a nice variety in individual and bulk bottle storage. This is definitely storage designed to accommodate a robust collection. We have no doubts that the clients will have plenty of storage for their growing collection. That includes storage for wine cases or crates, courtesy of the custom rectangular shelves. We can also design these shelves to be adjustable for different storage needs.

The wood option for this project is All-Heart Redwood. To match the lighter colored interior and flooring, the wood was kept in its natural, unstained state. The natural golden brown tones of the wood mesh so well with the rest of the room. This helps contribute to that neat-as-a-pin look, while keeping a classy vibe. Also, as we earlier mentioned, there are ways to keep the cost at bay even with all these custom features. One of those lies in the assortment of wood, stain and finish options.

For example, our client chose All-Heart Redwood. But while worth every dollar you spend, it might not suit everyone’s budget. You can look into other more affordable wood choices – like Rustic Pine. Rustic Pine is a knotty grade of wood which is also of excellent quality, but at a more affordable price range. Unstained Rustic Pine sports a gorgeous, creamy color with structurally sound knots for that perfect rustic charm. If you want to stain or finish your racks, you also get a bevy of choices – one that can match your budget. Seamless proportions at the right prices – that’s WCI custom wine racks! *Cheers*
