You can have a wine display that stands out without spending much on luxurious features. If you are a wine collector who wants an economical yet stylish wine storage solution, will create a home wine cellar design with eco-friendly features. We have been using reclaimed wine barrels to add unique touches to wine cellars.
Your Home Wine Cellar Design Can Stand Out with Eco-Friendly Features Using Reclaimed Wine Barrels
One of the goals of wine cellar builders, including Custom Wine Cellars Denver, is to build elegant wine rooms without having to go beyond the client’s budget and help reduce waste. There are many ways to add beauty to your wine room while being friendly to the environment. One of these is by using used wine barrels.
The roles of wine barrels include fermenting and aging wines, allowing some hints of cream, caramel, vanilla, and spice to be infused into the wine. These hints enhance the flavor of the wine before it is bottled and shipped. The oak barrels also help improve the color and texture of the wine. The wine barrels have a lifespan of up to seven years. However, most winemakers replace them after every three vintages because the barrels have diminished flavors after using them. They become neutral oak. Instead of letting them be dumped into the landfill, we have found ways to incorporate them as unique features in wine cellars.
We repurpose reclaimed wine barrels to make unique wine cellar flooring, wine racks, and countertops. Learn more about the innovative designs that create exceptional wine displays.
Home Wine Cellar Design with Wine Barrel Racks
Do you want to add a vintage touch to your wine storage room? There is an easy way! Why not display your wine bottles in wine racks made from reclaimed oak wine barrels? Our wine barrel racks have been increasing in popularity.
If you incorporate these exceptional wine racks into your home wine cellar design, your wine room will have an old-world look and smell like a winery because the oak barrels retain the aroma of the wines they once held. The wooden strips that make up the side soft the barrel are used for the wine racks, lending a curved appearance.
No two planks are exactly the same because the stamps and markings left by the metal hoops on the pieces of wood are unique. You will see the reddish and brown tones caused by the grape skins rubbed by the winery on the outer parts of the wine barrels. Our wine barrel racks hold the bottles in a neck-forward orientation. We offer customization options so you can achieve the look, functionality, and capacity that you want for your wine cellar.
Wine Barrel Flooring: a Trend in Home Wine Cellar Design
The flooring plays a crucial part in the overall appearance of your wine room. Our master builders at Custom Wine Cellars Denver always ensure that your flooring complements the style of your wine room and the existing décor of your home. We also want to bring your space to a higher level.
The common wine cellar flooring materials are vinyl, tiles, marble, bricks, slate, and cork. For many years, our team has been using reclaimed oak wine barrels to create a unique home wine cellar design using an environment-friendly style of flooring. We call it wine barrel flooring, which is available in three styles. We recommend this type of flooring to wine collectors who want to create a vintage feel and old-world charm in their residential wine room.
Processes in Creating Wine Barrel Flooring
Our team breaks the wine barrels into long strips with a thickness of about 5/8 inches. We micro-bevel the planks, which come in random widths and lengths. We use a technique called Tongue & Grove to make the flooring sturdier. We install a vapor barrier before gluing and nailing the flooring.
Styles of Wine Barrel Flooring We Can Incorporate Into Your Home Wine Cellar Design
The three wine barrel flooring styles we offer are Cooperage, stave, and Infusion. The wood from the top and bottom parts of the used barrels make up the Cooperage wine cellar flooring. This flooring exhibits unique Cooper stamps, representing the name of the vineyard where the barrels originated and the content of the barrels.
Stave wine barrel flooring is made from the wooden planks taken from the sides of the barrels. The wine barrels have metal bands and hoops that leave these pieces of wood intact, leaving distinctive markings.
The Infusion style flooring is made from the inside parts of the barrels, lending reddish tones to the flooring due to the natural color stain caused by the wine. No markings or stamps can be seen.
Wine Barrel Countertops and Tabletops
We always recommend incorporating a countertop or tabletop into every home wine cellar design we make. We had many clients who loved the idea of adding wine barrel countertops or tabletops into their wine cellar to create a vintage look. The timeless appeal of these eco-friendly features makes them in demand among homeowners.
