Custom Wine Cellars Chicago Illinois Design Ideas

Beautiful but affordable custom wine cellars are installed in residential homes in and around Chicago Illinois.  Check out these example local home wine rooms, they all have something in common.

All these wine cellar rooms were recently installed by local Chicago-based wine cellar builders for people passionate about their wine collections.  Chicago itself seems to be a hotspot for home custom wine cellars and wine enthusiasts generally.

See the Naperville custom wine cellar, it shows how a dull and old-fashioned corner of a basement room can be converted into a stunning wine room and entertainment area.  Complete with a wine cellar refrigeration system and glass walls, this wine cellar is both economic and great looking.

See the Palos Heights custom wine cellar, designed with unfinished premium redwood racking and concealed wine cellar lighting, this wine room is quite unique.  Check out the wine barrel table, solid display arch, and ‘X’ bin bulk storage displays. Wine cellar specialists love this wine cellar design.

See the downtown Chicago residential wine room, a wine cellar builder’s favorite type of design challenge, this room had a very odd shape.  See how size and shape constraints can be turned to aesthetic advantage. Getting really good 3D design drawings showing all elements and features of the racking layout becomes a critical part of the process to get a great result.

How do you start the process of creating and designing a custom wine cellar of your own?

Work with a wine cellar builder specialist who offers a really good, and ideally, free design process.  Their responsiveness and willingness to work with you in the design phase is a good indicator of the quality of work you can expect when the project starts for real.

Tip, ask for some example wine cellar design drawings of real wine cellars the builder has already created to give you ideas for your project.
