The wine room is open to the rest of the basement and its cabinets hold approximately 750 bottles. Its appliances and a modest sink are built-in to keep the wine as the focal point of the room. Temperature, air movement, and humidity are carefully controlled within the cabinets. It is accented with slate floors, custom tile work, and a reclaimed timber ceiling. The built-in appliances help to create an inviting environment which includes a custom sink made from a wine barrel, and a serving table. The owner requested a wine room that was open to the rest of the basement. The room is modest in size but offers everything necessary for upscale and casual gatherings.

A state-of-the-art video and sound system is integrated into the new cabinetry, making it equal in its advanced technology and its refined design. The tall cabinets accommodate a widescreen TV, stereo components, a turntable, records, and RC controls.

The Murphy bed allows the owners to host occasional guests or grand-child sleepovers. When the bed is closed, the room becomes an extra play space.

Existing glass block and mosaic tiles were dated and in need of repair. A new copper Japanese-style soaking tub becomes the focal object in a suite that includes a shower, sauna, vanity area, and a built-in bench. Warm natural materials including marble, travertine, and teak help create a peaceful environment for this suite.
