Mediterranean Wine Cellar With Tasting Table and Brick Ceiling
This rustic wine cellar features glass front cabinets, showing off a floor-to-ceiling wine collection. A branch-like chandelier hangs from a brick-lined ceiling, while a dark wood tasting table sits at the center. Leather wrapped dining chairs are positioned around the table.
The user-friendly mudroom with stylish storage solutions and gray-brown vertical shiplap walls that visually makes the space feel taller includes a Scandinavian-inspired whitewashed wood floor with creamy hues.
Olive green cabinetry in this mudroom boasts ample storage for a busy family. Cubbies keep jackets and bags neatly tucked away, yet accessible. A built-in desk provides a quiet study or work space with drawers for mail and office accessories.
A finished basement is a dependable enough investment by itself — but adding a luxury wine cellar is an increasingly popular remodeling project that also adds value and is even becoming a baseline expectation in some markets. Spend your money wisely to get the best return: “The most important feature of a wine cellar is temperature control,” says Mike Tenhulzen, owner of Tenhulzen Residential, who installed the cellar shown here. “A reliable chiller with humidity control is well worth the initial investment, and LED lighting is ideal because it doesn’t give off any heat.” Also, make sure you go the extra mile to treat the perimeter of the room properly with vapor barriers, weatherstripping and insulation in order to protect your precious cargo.
Enjoy a quiet wine tasting for two or host a small dinner party in this wine cellar with brick walls and stone floors. The cozy, small space makes it perfect for intimate gatherings or romantic evenings.
Inspired by the idea of a well-traveled woman, this dressing room pairs a glamorous Victorian-style bench with two Chinese ceramic vases. The result is an elegant yet eclectic seat on which to lounge before getting ready for a night on the town. Two floor-to-ceiling armoires ensure that the lady of the house has many outfits to choose from.
Traditional black cabinets are paired with sleek white countertops in this transitional laundry room. Sunburst wallpaper bring in a fun, contemporary element, while large neutral tiles ground the space.
The vision for this ground floor sports room was to provide a comfortable space for the family while maximizing the seating for guests. Using the concepts of scale and proportion, the designers were able to accommodate seating for up to 10 people, which was far better than the five they could fit on the old sectional.
