We Dream in Red & White

Basking Ridge Wine Cellar

The owners wanted to store around 1,000 bottles but did not want to detract from the rest of the basement, which has a very large 2nd kitchen, theater room, and sitting area. We decided to go wide and tall but only 48″ deep. Design-wise, the customer wanted to go traditional on the outside but more contemporary on the inside.

We kept the outside very proper with a rich traditional stain, 2 windows, and a glass door, but on the inside we used stainless steel for the displays and colored mosaics for the floor, topped off with a brushed aqua-paint finish. The climate controlled system is hidden behind a louvered grill and produces almost zero noise. Overall the bottle count came in at just under 1,100 bottles.

This particular custom wine cellar achieved every aspect of what the client was looking for: small footprint, transitional design, 1000-bottle storage, and the ability to blend in with the current basement.
