Custom Wine Cabinet Wraps the Fireplace
One of the unique things about being a manufacturer AND a custom designer is the unique ability to be able to push the envelope. One such recent design-and-build started with a blank wall and fireplace which became a 500+ bottle custom wine cabinet.
The homeowner did not have enough space for a traditional walk-in wine cellar but did allow us to go through the home to see if there was any suitable site for a wine cellar or wine cabinet. We agreed that the never-used fireplace wall was the perfect fit. The idea started when we were sitting on the homeowner’s couch brainstorming about where the wine storage would go, and the idea hit us like a ton of bricks! The fireplace!
We decided to fill the entire living room wall (floor to ceiling) and frame out the entire fireplace with a large wine cabinet (approx 20′ long) The homeowner was amazed at the bottle count and the overall design. The cabinet was built and installed with a custom split refrigeration unit and UV glass to minimize the light from the living room windows during the day. The inside wine racks and the outside cabinet were constructed out of mahogany and finished with a clear coat of lacquer. The wine racks consist of case bin storage, 750 storage, magnum horizontal displays and Bordeaux bottles. The overall footprint of the wine cabinet came in just under 26″ which allowed plenty of space for access and foot traffic. The project took just over 4 weeks and was installed in 3 days. Here is what the owner had to say:
Dear Joseph and Curtis,

We would highly recommend your work to anyone considering developing a wine cellar. Thanks again and it was a pleasure working with you. Stay in touch.
