Creating a Stunning Seattle Custom Wine Cellar Design – Steps Involved

Our team at Custom Wine Cellars Seattle is dedicated to creating a unique custom wine cellar design that meets every client’s storage needs and style preferences.  The Seattle custom wine cellar design team aims to provide a  design that will help you clearly visualize the final look of your wine cellar. Here, we discuss the steps in the wine cellar design process, for you to have a grasp of how it is done.  

Step 1: Creating a Sketch of Your Seattle Custom Wine Cellar Design 

The first thing to do is to create a sketch of the space or room you want to turn into a wine cellar.  The Seattle custom wine cellar design consists of 3-dimensional drawings, showing the different elevations of the completed wine room. These images will provide a better visualization of your dream wine cellar. They include dimensions, wall labels (A, B, C, D, E, and so on), racking styles, bottle capacities, and doorway (note the direction where the door opens). 

Wall Dimensions 

For the wall dimensions, it is important that you measure the width of the wall at three points – bottom, center, and top.  The design team will need to know the smallest of the three measurements because not all walls have a perfect square dimension.  This helps the wine cellar designers determine the perfect wine rack measurements and eliminates the need for complicated adjustments during installation. 

Ceiling Height and Other Fixtures 

Our experts will create a unique custom wine cellar design for your space.

You also need to carefully measure the height of the ceiling in every corner of the room and in the center of each wall.  Take note of the exact location of certain fixtures such as light switches, electrical outlets and panels, piping or plumbing fixtures and panels, support and overhead beams, and air vents. 

We take note of these details because generally, the wine racks are installed about four to six inches away from such fixtures.  For the other details that you are not sure about, you can just take note of them on the sketch, so our designers can review it later. 

Seattle Custom Wine Cellar Design Consultation – Totally Free! 

This is the exciting part.  The discussion is usually over the phone which may take only 15 to 30 minutes. Once we have your initial sketch, we discuss with you your specific plans on how to store, display, and manage your wine collection.

Our custom wine cellar designers in Seattle will want to know your design specifications, the ambiance you want to achieve, your long-term storage plans, how you want your wine storage system to function, and the possible challenges with the design such as having an odd-shaped room. 

The Seattle Custom Wine Cellar Design Package – Another Great Deal for FREE! 

After the designers get all of your design specifications, they will make a 3D custom wine cellar design package for you to clearly visualize your custom wine cellar.  The package includes: 

  1. A Plan View 
  2. Elevations 
  3. High-Quality 3D Views 

The design already includes the dimensions, storage capacity, and of course, the proposed cost, which is highly competitive. 

Review of the Custom Wine Cellar Design 

After you receive your personal custom wine cellar design, one of our designers will give you a call to review every detail.  We need to make sure that our clients understand every aspect of the design, and that all questions and clarifications are addressed before we proceed to the next steps. You may choose to utilize our modular wine racks, 6-foot, 7-foot, or 8-foot series wine rack kits, or a completely customized wine rack design.

Take note that we also include in the plan the wine cellar cooling unit, custom wine cellar door, lighting, and flooring.  These vital elements ensure that your wine cellar functions efficiently and exudes an aesthetic appeal. 

No worries if you want to make some revisions.  The Seattle Custom Wine Cellar Design team can cater up to two design revisions for FREE. 

Project Kick-Off 

It is customary for us to make sure that all your specifications are reflected in the wine cellar design, including your revisions.  Before the products are manufactured, we need to secure your written approval and signature on the appropriate drawings.   

After this, we will wait for your initial build deposit and formal project sign-off.  Once done, we will start building your custom wine cellar in Seattle

We conduct strict quality control inspections to make sure that the products we ship are in their best form. The wood materials we use are architectural grade.  Redwood, one of the wood species we use in the manufacture of wine racks, comes from sustainable forests in Northern Washington State.   

Just like the wine racking system, the other wine cellar components like the wine cellar cooling system, lighting, door, and flooring are all project-managed.  These components are securely packed and shipped directly to you. 


Wine Cellar Builders – Installing your Custom Wine Cellar 

The wine cellar builders at Custom Wine Cellars Seattle are all bonded, licensed, and insured professionals.  Therefore, we are confident to say that our team is very knowledgeable and capable of completing your custom wine cellar project.     

Our wine racks are typically easy to install.  Some of the components of the wine racking system are fully assembled.  If you want to do the installation yourself, you may possibly do so.  Another option is to get the services of a local finish carpenter, contractor, or installer so they can finish the project for you.
