We Dream in Red & White

Traditional Or Modern Wine Cellar Design

2016 January 8

In the past few years, wine collectors have been asking us whether to build a modern or traditional wine room. The fact that the wine storage area is its own unique space allows the design team and owner to branch out and maybe blend a little of both, which is called transitional.

The definition of transitional in interior design and furniture design refers to a blend of traditional and contemporary styles, midway between old world traditional and the world of chrome and glass contemporary. One of the main design features are the clean lines with the wine racks and displays. Color in both paint colors and flooring tends to be a background player in transitional rooms. It’s less about the material than about the color – think earth tones.

Traditional can be bold with vaulted ceilings, mosaics and, dare I say, murals. Modern or contemporary is usually minimalist…clean…peaceful. Here are a few photos of each style.

If you want to be safe try a little of both in your new wine cellar, tasting room, or custom wine cabinet – and by the way LED lighting looks great in any of them! Please contact us for ideas or if you’re ready to bring your cellar dreams to life.

Cheers!
