Under Stairwell Magic With The Vintage View Series

June 18th, 2020

Isn’t it super satisfying when a seemingly “wasted” space can be put to good use? With our Los Angeles clients, it was even more that. They turned a cramped little corner under the stairs into a stunning wine cellar! And how did they manage to do this? With nothing less than the Vintage View Series metal wine racks:

Under stairwell magic with Vintage ViewIsn’t it like magic how this tight space was transformed? Clients are indeed entitled to bragging rights over this wine storage. This small wine cellar can actually accommodate up to a little over 200 bottles. As you can see from the photos, they decided to go with the floor-to-ceiling configuration for the racks. This allowed the racking arrangement to fit into the uneven layout of the space. Note that with Vintage View, you have a choice between wall mounting the racks or assemble them in a floor-to-ceiling fashion. Naturally, you can also do both at the same time. This flexibility makes Vintage View very popular, especially with compact wine cellar projects.

Floor-to-ceiling configurationHere’s a really smart design move: the use of glass panels. Since the space is narrow, using glass elements gives the illusion of a much larger room in this under stairwell transformation. The glass also highlights the metal racking and gives the cellar a more luxurious appearance. Mixing these simple but different elements of metal and glass brings that added character to this project. Now check out the photo below. Notice that there are also Vino Pins added to the left side of the metal wine racks for good measure. These Vino Pins are able to mount directly to any wall surface with the proprietary anchor systems. This is the only metal wine rack peg system that can mount direct to drywall, masonry or wood. You don’t need even need a backer board!

The magic of Vintage View wine racksSo what about if you have more space to work with? Will the Vintage View also be able to provide for bulk bottle storage? Absolutely YES! Recently, the series has expanded to include a line of case, crate bins, and crate lockers. Check out more of Vintage View’s magic in with both small and large projects in our photo galleries. ^_^
