Explore the Resources That Can Help You Visualize Your Vision
Planning and designing your own wine cellar can be an exciting and rewarding project. To help you bring your vision to life, we have compiled a list of useful resources that can assist you in visualizing and planning your DIY wine cellar.
SketchUp is a free 3D modelling program for both PC and MAC. It is touted as “The easiest way to draw in 3D”. Originally from Google the program is now offered for free by Trimble. If you are familiar with software design programs, or in general are comfortable with complex software or 3D modeling concepts, then this might be the wine cellar design solution for you.

Step 1. Measure your future wine cellar as accurately as possible in all three dimensions and make notes for yourself about anything crucial like doorways, wall sockets, potential need for ventilation or cooling, etc.
Additionally, to make the process even more convenient, each of our wine cellar products comes with a SketchUp (.skp) model. This enables you to effortlessly select and plan the perfect design for your wine cellar.
Using your measurements you will create a virtual room in SketchUp to match the space you are working with. Once you have your room setup with doorways, windows, and the correct wall dimensions you can begin to fill your wine cellar with wine racking.
Paper Scale Models
Another helpful resource for DIY wine cellar planning is the use of paper scale models. These models provide a tangible representation of your wine cellar design and allow you to visualize the space and arrangement of racks, cabinets, and other elements. Paper scale models come with detailed instructions and materials to assist you in assembling and customizing your design.

Pre-Made Wine Rooms
What are the Possibilities?
This is the question most often asked by first time callers to our Design Loft. It may at first begin as a slightly different conversation with questions like:
What exactly can I do with this space I have decided to dedicate to wine?
What kind of options do I have with an Elite Kit Rack cellar?
What is the cost of an Elite Kit Rack?
Ultimately, it all boils down to the same desire to know the possibilities.
We understand that it is hard to imagine what a particular wine cellar might look like especially if, as for most people, you have never had one designed or installed for you before. Our pre-made room is offered here to give you an idea of what can typically be done in the same size space of a raw 10’ x 12’ room. As well, the PDF detailing this pre-made room will give you only a glimpse of the kind of overview and guidance you could receive by engaging the wine professionals in our Design Loft.
