Our clients wanted to include a wine cellar in their basement remodel, which was converting their basement into an adult game room and socializing space. They already had a bar and game tables, and enjoyed visiting wineries and tasting wines, and were well on their way to their own collection when they decided to convert their old storage are to the wine cellar. We included some nice touches in this project, including the faux wine barrel painting on the overhead ceiling bulkhead, and the corner cabinet that we needed to install to hide the sump pump. We also included a variety of racks, custom cut to fit the ceiling, to give them different types of storage and a pleasing pattern. Their tasting bar is decorated with a mural, and has a curved granite top and carved wooden arch that make it unique to them. The tile floor is bright and easy to clean, and resembles limestone. We also created a custom glass door motif and curved end storage shelving. The cellar has its own climate control, and the door has double paned glass with extra insulating strips around the edges to help keep the temperature constant between the cellar and the adjoining basement room.
