This means you’ve the freedom of displaying your wine at full height running the length of an entire wall, or create a nook for your cellar.

For the Traditionalists

Alhadeff Architects

This traditional wine cellar is designed by Milan and London-based Alhadeff Architects, and resides in a converted oil mill in Todi. Umbrian limestone and double height ceilings make it exactly the kind of environment we’d happily spend a few hours quaffing Chianti in.

Wine collections have traditionally been hidden away in cellars to preserve flavour profiles, but new technology means it’s far easier to store your collection above ground now. This curved glass design in SW4 by Cellar Maison is the consummate showstopper.

If you have the square footage at your disposal (and you’re a true vinophile), the ultimate dream is this wine cellar which is wrapped around its own tasting area. A wine room designed to truly take dinner parties to new heights.

Cellar Maison, Surrey. cellarmaison.com

Created for a private estate in Surrey, this bespoke wine room was built to hold 1300 bottles. Lucy Swallow designed the interior of the property, with grey washed oak, stainless steel, white polished marble all echoed in the design of the wine room, and a backlit feature wall. Temperature and humidity control are also inbuilt, with a specialist insulated cellar door which was made to match the joinery.

A little more pressed for room? We love the clever use of the dead below-stairs space in this compact cellar. The final design also creates visual impact, demonstrating how to conjure interest to a space that might otherwise be overlooked.

Wine cellar design collides with optical illusion in this walk-in glass cabinet. Slick enough to incorporate into an open plan living area, while making use of space and scale.

Trying to configure a wine room into a contemporary barn conversion? Take a leaf from this project by Cellar Maison. Double height racks and vertical lines work with the natural proportions of the room – with barn-style beams incorporated into the design and shelving.

Cable Wine Systems. cablewinesystems.com

Backlighting, glass, and wire cabling are all elements that help to create drama and intrigue in this modern art-styled wine room, while also creating the illusion that the bottles are floating in mid air.

Smallbone wine and cigar lounge. smallbone.co.uk

We love the 1920s vintage accents in this private, Smallbone-designed home wine and cigar lounge. Evoking the aesthetic of a private bar, the joinery is crafted from ebonised black walnut and cleverly integrated within the design are double wine coolers and drinks refrigeration. Calacatta Venato Bianco superior honed marble was used for the statement bar, which is offset against the deep indigo velvet upholstery in the bespoke banquet seating area. A private lounge fit for the Orient Express.

This slick, compact wine room integrates seamlessly into the monochrome scheme of a property in Surrey, where Cellar Maison worked with interior designer Lucy Swallow Interiors.
