Stunning Wine Rooms and their Before and After Transformations

At Vigilant, we believe any space can be turned into the wine room of your dreams. Whether it’s a closet, pantry, spare bedroom, office, you name it, we’ve created it.  Our design experts can maximize the number of wine bottles stored, even in the smallest spaces. Over the past few years, we’ve worked on some amazing projects all over the country. Check out the stunning results of these wine room transformations below.

Wine cellar transformationWe’ll start with a home in Manchester, Maine where the homeowners wanted to create a functional wine room and tasting area in their unfinished basement. By insulating the walls, ceiling and floor the room was ready for storage and a cooling system. The homeowners chose a through wall cooling system powerful enough to cool up to 2,000 cubic feet. The room holds over 1,700 bottles using Vigilant’s Mahogany individual bottle racking and diamond bin storage. Additionally, the wine room features a slatted archtop with installed LED lighting over a stone counter top, hanging stemware holders and a tasting table perfect for entertaining guests.

Through a Vigilant Full Glass Square Door and sidelights, the wine room creates a nice focal point to the living room. For storage, the room utilizes our Estate Mahogany ladder racking and beadboard archtop that holds up to 581 wine bottles. Keeping the room in perfect condition is a ducted cooling system with an integrated humidifier.

Corner turned wine closetNext, we’ll head to Elmhurst, Illinois where this homeowner built a small wine room from scratch in a corner of their basement. They framed, dry-walled and insulated the 43’’ by 50’’ space and installed a through wall cooling system. They used our standard Classic wine racking, assembling and installing everything themselves. The room features an exterior grade Vigilant Classic Arch Glass Door that preserves the perfect environment and protects the wine from the elements. The wine room can hold up to 355 bottles using diamond bins and individual bottle racking with a high reveal display row.

Pantry turned wine closetNext up, is a pantry turned wine room in a home in Northpoint, Florida. The 55’’ x 60’’ closet uses a remote ducted cooling system, ensuring the wine is stored at the perfect temperature. The wine room uses individual bottle racks, diamond bins and scallop shelving and is capable of holding up to 480 bottles.

Lastly, we move to a new construction project where the homeowner’s wanted a space for their dream wine room. Using a Vigilant Arch Door with sidelights the wine room can be viewed from anywhere in the homeowner’s entertaining space. The wine room features a diamond bin, ladder racking and curved corner wine storage all made from Mahogany and finished in a custom stain and lacquer. The room is well insulated allowing efficient use of a through-wall cooling system to maintain the perfect wine storage environment.
