We’ve all seen those lavish wine cellars in magazines and on television, you know, the ones showcasing beautifully delicate wines dating over 100 years with rich blushing colors and tastes of hickory and history. I am going to share with you some beautiful wine cellars, both traditional and contemporary, that will tease your aesthetic taste buds. Of course, I know that we can’t all have one of these gorgeous architectural majesties, so I am going to pair these lavish cellars with some wine storage we can all afford!
This is an incredibly modern wine cellar, using glass to construct gothic equilateral arches that whisper of both the past and future of design. One of the most interesting things about this wine cellar is the ceiling…
Yes, the ceiling is also the glass floor of the living space, which is also an interesting mix of old and new in terms of decor. The bright blue lights bring some cool color against the beautiful wooden floor and the result is two floors of overt contemporary dazzle!
Here is a more affordable alternative that can fit on your countertop. It is bright, colorful, see-through, and quite contemporary, a fine way to imitate this style in a small way.
Here is another modern and colorful option! I just love this one, which can be mounted to the wall anywhere for easy wine storage with some flair.
Below is another very modern cellar, complete with clean lines and once again the see-through aspect which allows you to see every single bottle.
I love how the bottles on the ceiling look like they are floating.
Here is a way to get the same effect at home. Wine bottles floating in glass on your wall are sure to get some double-takes! Below is another floating option lacking in clean lines but not at all in modernity or pizzaz.
Here is a very traditional wine cellar in Hungary, complete with barrels, cold brick domes, and warm lighting.
You can achieve this effect at home by using a barrel of your own. Obviously, no one person needs 100 barrels of wine and one is an easy fit even in an apartment!
Just cut out the front and lay down some slats and you have your very own hint of traditional wine cellar in your home.
Here is another traditional take incorporates both storage and surface space. Plus it is has wheels and is easy to move around and to make space or take the party to the next room. A great mix of function and fashion, if you ask me.
I love the look of this dark wood, darkly lit, brick dungeon of a wine cellar, with thick and chunky materials for an almost medieval effect.
Here is a great way to take this style home and it is an easy DIY. Grab some 4x4s and cut them to size, then use a dark-wood finish for the same rich colors seen in the cellar.
This cellar is lovely, with some beautiful dark wood, but also some more clean lines and delicate structure than the previously seen cellar.
This is a very inexpensive DIY for the home!
I love this one! A pallet with some holes cut out and voila! A wine rack that can go anywhere.
