All about the wine cellar countertop you need to konw
When you are taking notes about how to custom the wine cellar, studied the common and unique designs, have you ever missed the information about the countertop inside a wine cellar? To what conditions that we need it, and what is it made of? In this short article, I will tell you all you should know about wine cellar countertop.
Is wine cellar countertop necessary?
No. It depends on the functions and detailed design of your wine cellar. In another word, if you want it, you can have it. If you don’t like it, just forget it.
For example, if you want a table for tasting nearby the wine racks, you can design a peninsular connecting with the wine rack, or an island isolated from the rack. And both need the countertop.
And if you want to fix a sink with tap or appliances such as wine fridge inside the wine cellar, you’d better have the countertop for them. Or it’s not convenient to use them.
And since the common racks for wine are only 350mm deep, the cabinets for household use are mostly 600mm deep, much deeper than wine racks. If the wine cellar owner prefers to make the layered racks and wants to put the wine racks on the cabinets, the wine cellar countertop is the right divider for them.
What are the materials to make the wine cellar countertops?
Like the countertop in the kitchen, the wine cellar countertops are mostly made from solid wood and stone material, such as marble and quartz.
One of the advantages of solid wood countertop is that it can be perfectly integrated with the wooden wine racks beneath and above because they are made from the same wood in the same finish. Some wine cellar owners are attracted by the natural texture of wooden material or a specific variety of solid wood and prefer all the wine cellar is only made from wood, of course, the wine cellar countertop is also included.
But for some cellar owners, will prefer stone countertop, for its different color from wood, and long durability. Besides, because the stone is water-proof material, cleaning is easier than solid wood. It’s also strong enough that it’s not easy to get scratch on the surface.
