Wine cellar refrigeration systems play a vital role in ensuring that wines are stored in the right temperature and humidity so that they can age properly. A beautifully designed and well-built custom wine cellar in Chicago is useless if no wine cellar cooling unit is installed. And even when a unit is installed, if the installation process is done poorly, the wines will still be damaged. US Cellar Systems has both quality wine cellar refrigeration units and qualified unit installation professionals.
Residential Wine Cellar in Chicago, Illinois
In wine cellar construction, location is of primary importance. For this specific project, a 15 x 17 ft. billiard table room with a fire place was renovated and converted to accommodate the residential wine cellar. The fireplace was sealed up, then the insulation and vapor barrier were installed. 1000 plus wine bottles can be housed in this huge home wine cellar in Chicago. The number of bottles that the client intended to store is one of the important things discussed when the wine cellar project was planned because this determined how large the custom wine cellar would be and which location was most appropriate for the construction.
Chicago Wine Cellar Design
Custom wine cellars allow clients to choose how their wine storage rooms will look. The best wine cellar designs are those that reflect the owner’s personality and individual preference.
This custom wine cellar in Chicago had a classic and medieval ambiance. Stone work was done up to 10’ ceiling and a suit of armor was included in the décor. To accentuate the medieval style, reclaimed barn wood was used for the racking. The reclaimed barn wood was obtained from their local supplier and dated back to the 1800s.
The wine racking in this uniquely designed wine cellar includes individual storage, as well as a diamond bin for bulk storage. The four niches in the corners, 2’ in height and 6” in depth, are designed to showcase magnums. All of the wine racks used in this wine storage room are custom hand made out of reclaimed barn wood.
