My clients wanted to turn this small under the stair closet into a place for wine storage. The closet opens up into the great room and kitchen area.
I spent time researching pre-fabricated components that might fit into the closet. I came up with a plan for commercial racks mounted to the wall up the side and I found the tallest wine storage piece I could that would fit with the pitched room. This was my design utilizing pre-fabricated components.
I also came up with a completely custom design that would fully utilize the height of the back wall before the pitch roof begins. Shelves on the side line up with the back piece to create a rhythm in unity of the space in order to keep such a small space from feeling too closed in. The bottles on the shelves to lie on their sides. The “top shelf” is created to stand bottles of wine and alcohol upright. Wood is finished to match the stain on the kitchen cabinets.
We contacted a local cabinet-maker for a proposal. They offered competitive pricing and the choice became clear.
Now they can see all of the labels to assess exactly what they have and what they may need to stock up on.
It was a great project and wonderful collaboration with clients and contractors.
