Unique Modern Touches For Your Wine Cellar

January 20th, 2020

The start of 2020 marks a definite leaning towards the modern wine cellar trend. We anticipated that this would be the case. After all, the recent years had us working on lots of custom projects revolving around this theme. That’s why today, we’re going to be exploring even more options and sharing them with everyone. Let’s find out what unique modern touches would work best with your wine cellars:

Unique modern touches with cable racking

The Cable Wine Racking System

First up is one of the most minimalistic styles you can have for your racking assembly – the Cable Wine Racking system. For those who are not too familiar with this style, let’s go a bit more into details. A cable wine system is made out of stainless steel. This makes it perfect for high humidity environments as you don’t have to worry about it rusting out. There are strong cables are attached to wood panels above and below, making for super secure bottle storage. As for the styling the racks, this will definitely be an enjoyable experience. The wood panels can be created in a variety of woods, stains and lacquer. You can also go with a blended stain option if you desire something truly distinct for your racks.

Invisible racking with acrylic racks

Invisible Racking with Acrylic Racks

Get out of your comfort zone and try something other than wood or metal for your racking assembly. Our contemporary choice is the Acrylic Wine Rack. These transparent units will make your wine bottles seem like they’re floating in the air! WCI offers what we call as our Invisible Wine Cellar Series. This system takes large sections and parses them out like a riddling wine rack concept. The neck holders give the elegant appearance of floating wine bottles. Each wine bottle is securely held via the specialized wine slots. The result is a high end modern feel to your wine room. It certainly ranks high on our list of unique modern touches for wine cellar projects!

Steel & Rod series

The Steel Rod & Wood Series

Here is another up-and-coming trend when adding modern touches to your wine cellar. The Steel Rod & Wood Series is all about combining wood and steel wine racks. Check out this arrangement that our team installed for a client in North Carolina. The stainless steel rods were paired with elegant Grand Mahogany wood option. Note that this series also carries with it a bevy of wood, stain and finish options for endless design possibilities. ^_^
