Wall & Ceiling Heights – Wine Cellar Design
Your first step should be to draw a simple sketch of the room or space you plan to convert. It doesn’t have to be a beautiful or professional work of art, just a straight forward line drawing with its dimensions. Draw it as an overhead view of the wine cellar and label your walls clearly, A, B, C, D, E, etc. Note your doorways and don’t forget to show the direction that the door actually opens. Now here is an important step and where problems can arise later if it is not done correctly. For each wall, measure the width at the bottom of the wall, also checking it at the center and at the top. Note the smallest measurement in your sketch.
We need the shortest of these three measurements. Most walls are not as perfectly square as you might think, taking this step will therefore help to make sure that your racking will fit properly without the need for tricky adjustments when being installed.
Also carefully measure the ceiling height in each corner of the room. Take the time to check the height at the center of all of the walls. Add these maximum and minimum measurements to your sketch. Note the precise locations of any items such as electrical outlets, lighting switches, overhead or support beams, plumbing fixtures or piping, soffits, electrical or plumbing access panels and of course, air vents.
Generally, your wine racking should be 4-6″ away from any existing light switches, thermostats and or door casings. If there is anything you are unsure of simply note it in your sketch to be reviewed with your wine cellar designer later.
Wine Cellar Design Consultation
Now the fun begins! Once we have your initial sketch and the dimensions, we need to take a few minutes to discuss with you how you wish to store, manage and display your wine collection.
Our designers will talk to you to learn all about what you want your wine cellar to look like, how you want it to function and to and address any challenges or limitations before the design is created. For example there may be unique constraints such as odd shaped rooms, mechanical equipment to work around or be concealed or some there may be special way you would like your room to function.
This is usually a simple phone call that typically takes about 15-30 minutes of your time.
Once we have a good understanding of your plans and any location specific challenges or limitations we will have everything we need to develop a 3D Wine Cellar Design Package. Your package will include a Plan View, Elevations and several 3D views that are designed to allow you to visualize the finished product in place.
Included with the drawings will be a highly competitive cost proposal.
The Wine Cellar Design Itself – What you get
