Kachina Drive Wine Cellar
An used closet under the stairs is transformed into a beautiful and functional chilled wine cellar with a new wrought iron railing for the stairs to tie it all together. Travertine slabs replace carpet on the stairs.
LED lights are installed in the wine cellar for additional ambient lighting that gives the room a soft glow in the evening.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
BalustradesTraditional stair designs usually have open balustrades that reveal the outside end of the stair treads. Open balustrades with curbs enclose the ends of the treads with the supporting wall or stair structure. Closed balustrades are designed where two walls line the edges of the staircase. Open-ended treads usually cost more to build, because the detail of the edge of the tread is intricate and requires superior finish work. Curbed treads can be simpler and easier to construct. Both types can be detailed in traditional or modern fashion. Pictured here is a stairway with an open balustrade and curbed treads.
