Wine Wednesday: Designing a Wine Cellar for Homefront Design

At WineRacks.com, we pride ourselves on designing and building quality wine racks that our clients will be proud to display for a lifetime. All of our wood wine racks are expertly manufactured right here in the United States of America so we can follow your racking from the design stage to milling all the way through shipping. We even offer the option for install.

Homefront Design is a dealer who truly appreciates those factors listed above. When they contacted us with their newest project, they were delighted to discover that we now offer Chief Architect as one of our design software options. They sent us over the preliminary design that they had been working on and our designer Asia expanded upon it. She listened to what their needs were so that she could match them perfectly.

The result was a design the client loved that translated into a cellar that is both functional and a piece one can be proud to show off.

Testimonial from Homefront Design:

We purposely searched out an American made product. The Wine Rack product line is American made, the company provides terrific customer service and creative design solutions if you need them. The product line offers plenty of standard shapes which would satisfy most layout needs, a great variety of woods and finishes if your project calls for it. I’m looking forward to doing more projects with them.

Thanks guys!

Remember, if you like what you see but are unsure of what will work in your space then you can always request a custom design. This design is free of charge whether your space is a small wine closet or a massive retail store.

Also, if you’ve purchased a rack or installed a custom cellar from us and would like to be featured in our blog then don’t hesitate to e-mail me at Shannon@wineracks.com.

Wine Wednesday: What WineRacks.com’s Cellar Design Process and White Glove Delivery Service Looks Like

We at WineRacks.com pride ourselves on our quality crafted, American made wine racks as well as our customer service so it always means a lot to us when we hear back from a satisfied customer.

Mr. Greier of Hopewell Junction, NY submitted an wine cellar questionnaire through our website. He needed guidance on how to layout his space and our designer Asia Armstrong was quick to assist him from start to finish. Asia worked closely with him to best determine what would fit his needs and his space before coming up with the final design.


Once he was satisfied with his design, Mr. Greier also opted for our white glove install. This is a tiered service that we happily offer to our customers here at WineRacks.com. Our white glove service caters to each individual’s needs and ranges from curb side delivery to a full install. Mr. Greier decided to go with a full install and had the following to say after the entire experience:

Dear Rob, Asia & team at Wineracks.com,

My wife and I couldn’t be happier with the white glove service & treatment we received from everyone at Wineracks.com during the entire process of our home wine cellar installation. The initial design process was very interactive and helpful, as Asia was very attentive to our needs. She offered excellent suggestions to add design features that we weren’t aware of, always working with our budget. Rob added his more than qualified suggestions & added personal attention that we did not receive at any other company. He sent out wood samples and detailed the white glove installation service, which made our decision to work with Wineracks.com a no brainer. All in all, Wineracks.com exceeded our expectations at all times, and we are extremely happy with the finished product. We would recommend them to anyone considering a residential or personal cellar. We will have many years of joy & fine wine to come from the new Greier Wine Cellar, established April 2012, designed & installed by Wineracks.com!

Cheers,
The Greier Family – Hopewell Junction NY

Wine Wednesday: A View Into WineRacks.com’s Wine Cellar Design Process

As you might be aware, we offer free custom design consultations for our customers. Unlike many of our competitors, we provide this consultation free of charge no matter how small or large the space. Another thing that sets WineRacks.com apart is the fact that your Cellar Consultant IS your Cellar Designer as well.

As a result, you can be sure there is no miscommunication in the design process as you are speaking directly with the individual who will take you from consultation to finished design. Our designers will make sure that we completely understand what you want to achieve in your wine cellar and how to best achieve that. To do so, we will account for any challenges and limitations that your space may present.

All of this leads to a design that will meet your needs and that is quickly turned around to you. Typically, one of our designers will return a design to you within 24 – 72 hours.

As always, we offer these consultations free of charge, no matter how small or large the space you’re looking to rack is. We will also gladly custom design wine racks if the need arises.

We recently worked with a gentleman in Texas who was converting an old pantry in his house into a wine cellar. He submitted a questionnaire through our site that outlined his ideas so we had an idea of what he wanted. Based on his questionnaire, we knew he wanted modular racking and diamond bins. However, he needed racks at a smaller width than the standard ones we offer on our site due to his space limitations. He also wanted a wood that would match the preexisting cabinet he had in the space.

We worked with him to determine what would not only best fit in his space but what would give him the aesthetic that he was looking for. We decided on our premium modular racking in mahogany for the sides of the space, modified diamond bins in the center and a stemware rack beneath the bins to give it that finishing touch.

We also added a 3/4″ furniture grade veneer plywood back to the diamond bins to complete the look that he was hoping to achieve. The customer decided he would apply a finish to the racks on site so that their color would best match the cabinet these racks would rest upon.

After a short consultation and a quick revision, we provided the client with the SketchUp below.

The client loved the design and quickly signed off on our cellar agreement. From there, we started production on his racks right here in our facility in New York.

The end result is what you see below. The customer was kind enough to send us pictures of the finished racks in their new space as well as a glowing review of his experience with us at WineRacks.com. As you can see, our decay and moisture resistant mahogany wood took to the stain beautifully.

The installation went smoothly and I think the racks came out looking great.

Thanks for your help,

Clint

Wine Wednesday: From Inquiry to a Finished Wine Cellar

We pride ourselves on our customer service at WineRacks.com so it always means a lot to us when we hear back from a satisfied customer.

Dan from Stanford, CT came to us via our online cellar questionnaire. He needed guidance on how to rack his space and our designer Jamie Teator was quick to assist him from start to finish.

After we helped design and rack Dan’s cellar, he came back with a need for a custom stemware rack. Jamie quickly worked up a design for something custom that would also match the racks he previously purchased from us.

In the end, he was more than pleased with the entire experience and sent us a glowing testimonial.

“Wine Racks.com.. What a great find! I found many “Custom Wine Rack” builders on the internet and in Wine Enthusiast Magazine and I called or emailed several to get information on fabricating a custom cellar for me. Some never replied and others were less than professional.

I finally settled on the three that seemed to be the most professional. I provided my basic needs and the dimensions of the space that I had to work with to all three. I did in all fairness get responses from all three but that is where the similarities end. Two provided very basic cellar designs with prices and indicated that if I wanted anything further there would be a design fee. Then you have Jamie Teator from Wineracks.com…. What a star. She provided the initial consultation and then did several revisions to get to EXACTLY what I was looking for.

Once we had the design I wanted, Jamie provided a very attractive price. I felt very comfortable when it came time to sign on the dotted line and give Wineracks.com a deposit. They delivered the cellar in the time frame they promised and when I found that I needed a couple of extra pieces of trim and spacing material they sent it promptly at no charge.

A few weeks later I decided that I wanted to add a custom stemware rack. I again enlisted Jamie and she whipped up a custom design for me in minutes. I gave her the go ahead and bingo, two weeks later the stemware rack is hanging in my cellar!”

Thank you Dan for your kind words! We’re just glad we could be of assistance!
