|Residential Wine Storage|
The wine racking display and wine storage components you choose are the most vital functional and decorative elements in your wine cellar. The choices you make at this stage will largely determine how your wine room will look and function. Once you have the room dimensions and door location defined, you will need to begin placing the wine storage racks, display elements and wine storage components gracefully into your wine cellar space. Our wine cellar design experts at Vigilant can get you started and work with you to come up with a design that fits your requirements.
The best way to budget the cost of the wine racking for your cellar is on a cost per bottle basis. For a basic design the estimate should start at $3-$4 per bottle. For more elaborate designs the cost can escalate to upwards of $10 per bottle. View the wine cellar planning charts to help you determine the cost of your wine racking.
Vigilant kit wine racking consists of an extensive line of pre-built wine storage racks and wine cabinets that can be combined to create a complete wine cellar storage solution. At 77.5"or 92.5" high and 13.5" deep, they are of the same quality as our custom wine racks, but have these distinct advantages.
If your needs are mostly met by kit wine racks and you are looking for a custom wine cellar feature to add into your design, the experts at Vigilant will create a design and proposal that will incorporate both our kit and custom products. This may help you get the wine cellar you want and still allow you to meet any time and budget restrictions you may have.
Function and form again take center stage when considering your options for your wine cellar door. At a minimum the door must be exterior-grade – providing insulation and the proper weather stripping. The door also is the first thing you and your guests see when entering your wine cellar and is an important part of the design.
It is preferable to have your wine cellar door swing into the wine cellar, but make sure that its swing path does not interfere with your wine racks. The positive pressure in a conditioned wine room will push the in-swinging door against the jamb and weather stripping, creating a superior seal. Before ordering your door you must determine its swing; in or out, and left or right. Make sure to provide this information to the wine cellar door manufacturer.
If choosing a door with glass, make sure that the glass panels are double-insulated and are properly sealed to the door frame. If adding sidelights to your wine room door make sure that they meet all of the same performance specifications as your door.
Vigilant mahogany wine cellar doors are designed specifically for wine cellars and provide superior performance and visual appeal. These doors are available in several styles and offer glass etching, matching sidelights and decorative trim. Vigilant also designs and crafts custom wine cellar doors of any size and style to match the interior components of our cellar.
