There are many ways to build a wine room with a variety of materials ranging from wood to glass.

Check out these beautiful examples we found to get you inspired!


This classic wine cellar features a solid mahogany double door, dark tiled floors with metallic accents and custom plaster ceilings. But it includes something you don’t see every day.

Using smart home technology, you can monitor who and when someone enters the wine cellar, notifying you via text.

The photo below features a 2,000-bottle wine cellar with a self-contained cooling system that keeps the temperature at 59 degrees.

The most impressive detail is the barrel-vaulted, hand-laid Italian tile ceiling, which uses a centuries-old technique to ensure even weight distribution in the design.


You can’t go wrong with a classic walk-in wine closet with a glass rack, custom bourbon room and stone walls.

It also features customized acrylic and thermal metal framing, with a black matte finish to match the custom finish on the racks.

A closet-sized wine cellar can fit nicely in a living room corner while still housing an extensive wine collection.

Be cautious of the amount of sunlight it gets…too much direct sunlight accelerates aging, so UV-filtering glass and low-voltage LED bulbs are recommended.


This climate-controlled wine room marries rustic and modern to create an amazing space complete with a tasting area.

When designing a wine room, you may want an area close by for wine tasting. This is a great example for those who love to entertain!
