BEFORE: a basement storage room that had just been collecting clutter for years. The family also had a great affinity for wine and entertaining and not a lot of space to do it in. Ellen Gundersen, a senior design consultant with California Closets, came to the rescue!

AFTER: This contemporary style design uses a combination of closed storage (to hide some of the old, but necessary clutter) with open, diverse wine bottle racks and countertop for mixing.

AFTER: The transformed room is design in a Roman Walnut finish and is accented with Umbrian Oak wine “x” inserts, stainless steel slide-out wine racks and hardware, and light rattan baskets.
