WineWednesday: Adding VintageView Wine Racks To Your Cellar

A mix of traditional wood racks and sleek, modern VintageView wine racks can make for a cellar that will not only stand the test of time but make for a great conversation piece.

image001

Above is a cellar that we worked on with Pure White Design out of Ontario, Canada. The black stain on wooden wine racks together with the VintageView wall mounted racks in satin black creates a gorgeous, industrial style look.

The combination created a cellar that Pure White Design is proud to show off.

Your company was excellent to work with and we were so pleased with the product! It looks great in the model home! They get many compliments on them.

We for sure would like to do more business in the future.

We certainly echo those sentiments when it comes to working with Pure White Designs and we highly recommend them for any of our Canadian customers looking for an interior designer in the Ontario area.

IMG_1140 As you can see, the VintageView racks work fantastically if you’re looking to remodel your wine cellar and want to implement more than just traditional wood wine racks. The VintageView wine racks mix well  whether you desire a wall that is half wood and half metal racks or you just want to add one row of metal racks to either side to really make the space pop.

VintageView wine racks also stand alone by themselves beautifully if you’d prefer a cellar consisting only of metal storage.

The four standard finish options for the VintageView racks give you an array of color options to choose from and the racks themselves can be mounted directly to the wall.

There is also an option to use the VintageView floor to ceiling frame if you don’t want to drill into the wall or if you’d like them to be a stand alone piece that rests against the wall. The floor to ceiling frame can also be used to mount VintageView wine racks on both sides if you’re looking to have a free standing rack in the middle of your room or perhaps on top of a bar in a commercial capacity.

Thirsty Thursday: Our American Made Mahogany Racks in Mark & Toni’s Coal Fired Pizza

BrothersPizzaAndRestaurant3

While our premium cellar series racks are primarily used within the home there’s some fantastic retail applications for them as Mark & Toni’s Coal Fired Pizza found out first hand.

When Nick from Mark & Toni’s Coal Fire Pizza called in he had an idea of what he wanted but our associate Kelly Nulty was quick to assist with some additional questions he had.

The restaurant eventually decided on two of our Premium Series Full Height Solid Diamond Bin Wine Rack in mahogany and two Premium Series 1 Column Individual Bottle Wine Racks in mahogany.

As you can see, the racks came out beautifully and fit well into this upscale restaurant and wine bar. As we’ve discussed before, mahogany’s rich coloring and durability make it a popular choice for all types of projects. While mahogany is a bit more expensive than some of our other wood options the value of it is quite clear.

Wine Wednesday: A Residential Wine Cellar in Ohio

At WineRacks.com, we pride ourselves in 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 and even install. This way you know you’re receiving a quality product.

We recently worked with a design builder out of Ohio to provide them with just the racks they needed for a client’s home. The ease of our online shopping experience along with the stellar customer service they received over the phone left them with a great experience that they later shared with us in the testimonial below:

We purchased wine racks for a wine cellar that we designed for one of our clients. I used the WineRacks website to help aid in the design and was able to design the space with all standard items. When I had a question about the product, the estimated time to complete or delivery the staff was on top of things and very helpful. Communications was very good with a high level of professionalism.

It is always great to hear these sorts of things from customers and we look forward to providing this sort of experience to many future customers.

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. You can also e-mail us at Customerserv@wineracks.com.

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

Thanks Clint! It is always fantastic to see our racks in their new space and to hear that a customer enjoyed their experience with us at WineRacks.com
