Some people try to stay away from dark hues in their homes because of the popular notion that they make spaces appear closed off and cramped. But that’s really a case to case basis. Darker colors give off an elegant and luxurious vibe, especially when you know how to work with them. That’s why you shouldn’t shy away from them just because you have a smaller space to work with. Take a leaf out of our client’s book and check out this stunning wine cellar closet:
Project # 266564
Wood: Gold / Vintner
Bottle Capacit: 591
Where: Lee, FL
So this compact area in the client’s home proved to be the perfect spot to build their wine cellar. The Gold Series wine racks were utilizing, along with pieces from our Vintner Series wine rack kits. A clever combination of individual and bulk bottle storage units resulted in this closet transformation that can host up to nearly 600 bottles. And that’s not all! Notice how the cellar looks roomy despite the dark stains and finishes on the wood. In fact, the Dark Weathered Stain and Finish options used on the racks served to really emphasize their classy silhouettes and make them really stand out.
Our Dark Weathered Stain and Finish options are not often used in a lot of projects, but it’s about time more wine cellar fans learn just how aesthetically pleasing these darker colors can be. The Dark Weathered Finish aims to create a time-worn look for the racks – spell “vintage.”Basically, the wood is run through a proprietary process that strips inter-grain material down below the grain in the same fashion that outside exposure striates barn siding over 50-70 years. This works particularly well with pine, redwood and oak which is perfect in this wine cellar’s case since the wood of choice is Premium Redwood. The darker hues brought about by this specific stain and finish option actually helped to enhance the properties of the wood and even better, the seamless integration of individual bulk wine racking units.
