Construction challenges did not stop a professional from building a wine cellar. Known as one of the top-notch designers and installers in Vancouver, Blue Grouse Wine Cellars was able to design and install a unique and functional wine room in a basement. Traditional and modern features were combined to meet the client’s requirements.
Conversion of a Basement Into an Impressive Custom Wine Cellar
With extensive experience in building wine rooms, Blue Grouse Wine Cellars offers storage solutions for those who dream of having a safe and beautiful place for their collection.
Recently, they have converted a large basement into a traditional and contemporary custom wine cellar in Vancouver.
After a careful assessment of the client’s aesthetic and functional requirements, they created 3-dimensional drawings of the wine cellar. The images show the plan views, elevations, and dimensions of the room.
Wine Cellar Construction
The original room had a heavy pool table and a couple of wine cabinets that had to be transferred upstairs. Blue Grouse Wine Cellars had to replace the old drywall with a new type of drywall intended for a climate-controlled wine room.
They had to add insulation on the walls and ceiling. The hidden room under the stairs, which can be accessed through a tiny door, had to be insulated as well because it will be used as an additional wine storage space.
Another challenge for Blue Grouse Wine Cellars is the window, which opened to the outdoors. They had to build a wall in front of it to prevent harmful light from coming through. After sealing the room, they started to install the wine racks, cooling system, door, lighting, and flooring.
Wood and metal wine racks were used to satisfy the client’s desire for a traditional and contemporary storage area. The wine room has two doors: one enters the residential wine cellar from the basement hallway and the other from the outdoors. They are both solid, exterior grade doors.
Sapele Wood and VintageView Metal Wine Racks
The appeal and mood of a wine room are determined by the overall design of the racking system. At Blue Grouse Wine Cellars, they make sure that the material and style of wine racks exceed the owner’s standards. They use their passion and creativity to build custom wine rooms that can be the envy of every guest.
In this wine room conversion project, wood and metal wine racks were combined to create a storage display that suits the needs of a high-end wine collector.
Stylish Wine Racks Constructed from Sapele Wood
Custom wine cellar builders in Vancouver recommend the Sapele wood wine racks because of their stability and high resistance to rot. Since Sapele is a hardwood species that has interlocking grain pattern, it is known to be harder than other types of wood. It is also widely used by manufacturers of doors and windows.
With attractive grain patterns and natural luster, Sapele can add character to your wine storage room. They left the wine racks unfinished because the owner wanted a scent-free cellar.
Elevation B is the first racking that you’ll see when you enter the door from the basement hallway. It starts with a 5-level quarter round wine rack where the client can display a few bottles vertically.
It also provides a good storage area for wine accessories like decanters and wine glasses.
