Wine cellar lighting is an important feature of the cellar as a whole, and it can often be one of the trickiest aspects to incorporate.
Self-Contained Cooling System
Recessed Lighting: One of the most popular lighting options, recessed lighting is most often used as the main source of light within a cellar. Recessed lights are mounted into the ceiling of the wine cellar and can be found in a variety of shapes, sizes, and styles.
Display Lighting: Display lighting is a beautiful way to enhance your wine racks and showcase your favorite bottles.
Sconces and Chandeliers: For those looking to add style to their cellars, sconces and chandeliers are a great lighting option. Wall sconces attach to the walls of the wine cellar and, when installed at the proper height, can flood the room with indirect uplight. Most commonly used as a decorative focal point, chandeliers offer a way to enhance the ambiance of the cellar while brightening the room. These ceiling mounted fixtures can be found in a wide array of styles, shapes and sizes to add a unique feel to any cellar.
Dimming Systems: For the most flexibility in whatever lighting option you choose, the installation of a dimming system is a must. Whether you are conducting a tasting, entertaining, or just need to read the labels, the use of a dimming system grants you full control over the lighting level to optimize cellar temperature and create the ambiance that you prefer.
