Our team of skilled joiners truly excelled themselves with this fabulous wine store.
The client’s brief
When Paul and Veronika approached us to create a wine store for their dining room, the brief was simple – it needed to store as much wine as possible!
Of course, that wasn’t really all there was to it.
The cabinets needed to reflect the contemporary style of their home and provide storage for other items, with easy access from the stunning dining table. They were also taking the opportunity to add a breakfast bar in their kitchen.
Rich textures in a contemporary style
We opted for black American walnut for the cabinetry, with a matt lacquered finish. This beautiful wood complements Veronika and Paul’s existing furniture and has a wonderfully deep, rich tone.
Darker woods can be a little imposing. To prevent this, the diamond-shaped open shelving of the wine store is backed with a vintage mirror from Rough Old Glass and the other shelves are backlit. This gives the more visible, top half of the store a les dominant feel.
Practicality and beauty
The diamond-shaped storage section doesn’t just look great; we reckon it can hold around 250 bottles of wine! More than meeting the client’s requirements.
The lower section of the wine store contains hand crafted, dovetailed walnut drawers. The drawers include bespoke divisions to help keep their contents well organised.
As a special finishing touch, one of the drawers has “Made for Paul and Veronika” engraved into its side, adding a delightfully personal touch..?
We also designed the breakfast bar with practicality in mind. We created the bar itself from 30mm Bon Accord polished granite, to complement their existing kitchen worksurfaces. This features a short upstand to protect the wall. It incorporates four subtle ventilation lines, machined into the stone, which allow the heat from the radiator below to escape.
The end of the bar is punctuated by a semi-circular double cabinet. This provides useful additional storage space and also creates a seamless transition between the kitchen and dining room.
The final result
Paul and Veronika were delighted with the additions to their beautiful home:
Would highly recommend this company’s service. Their craftsmanship and customer care is exceptional.
