Technical Tuesday Episode #487: Quaint “Cottage” Details On Wine Cellar

August 11th, 2020

Do you want to recreate that quaint “cottage like” feel on your wine cellar project? Then this Tech Tuesday can show you the ropes on how to achieve that. The old country details are pretty authentic on this one. We love how the traditional wine cellar look is given more character with the additional accents:

Project # 319071
Wood: Custom / Vintner / DKS / Grand Mahogany
Bottle Capacity: 1503
Where: Cincinnati, OH

Quaint cottage vibesThe racking assembly is actually a mix of custom units and pieces from our wine rack kits. But because of the excellent craftsmanship and finishing, everything is so uniform and seamless. You certainly can’t tell that there are “kits” mixed into the layout. One of the advantages of combining such pieces is that the overall cost will be more reasonable. If you’re working with a budget and you want to really stick to it, this is one of the recommended solutions. Note that with our wine rack kits, you are still afforded choices such as with your wood, stain and finish options. Vintner, in particular, offers such an extensive selection that it has been called “the next best thing to custom.”

Grand Mahogany in Dark Walnut Stain Now let’s move on to the design details! Grand Mahogany was chosen for this project with a Dark Walnut stain option. Grand Mahogany works with almost all types of stains of finishes. But it also handles darker ones exceptionally well. Dark Walnut is a deep golden-brown stain. When applied, the  stain deepens almost all shades of wood. You can see that result reflected on the wine racks. The beautiful golden-brown hues stand out quite prominently against the light colored walls, ceiling and flooring.

Here at WCI, we have an excellent selection of wine cellar flooring styles for you to choose from. Not only can you have any design you want, you also have the luxury of selecting from a bevy of different materials. You can have something like this one with from our Mosaic or Hand-Painted Tile flooring options.
