Choosing a Wine Cooler in the Kitchen Renovation Timeline

  • 2024-01-11

Are you planning a kitchen renovation? Incorporating a Dunavox wine cooler into your kitchen design can bring a touch of luxury and elegance to your home, but it can also present some challenges. At what stage of the renovation process should you choose the perfect appliance?

If you buy it too early, you might find yourself regretting your choice of wine cooler. For instance, you might opt for one built into cabinetry, only to discover later that an undercounter wine cooler would have been a better fit. On the other hand, thinking about it too late might cause you to miss out on the opportunity to integrate it seamlessly into your kitchen.

In this article, we will guide you through the steps of when and how to add a Dunavox wine cooler to your kitchen renovation timeline.


Early Planning Phase (6-12 Months Before Renovation)

Preliminary Design (4-6 Months Before Renovation)

Collaborate with a professional kitchen designer or contractor to discuss your plans and envision the integration of the wine cooler. Depending on your space and preferences, decide whether you want the wine cooler to stand freely or be built into cabinetry.


Detailed Design and Product Selection (2-3 Months Before Renovation)

As your renovation plans become more refined, it is time to finalize the details. Select the specific Dunavox wine cooler model that matches your needs and complements your kitchen's aesthetics. If you are opting to integrate the wine cooler into your cabinetry, work closely with your designer to ensure that the cabinetry dimensions and design seamlessly accommodate your chosen Dunavox wine cooler model. Confirm the direction of the door swing if applicable, ensuring it aligns with your kitchen's traffic flow.

Renovation and Installation (During Renovation)

As the renovation progresses, ensure that the designated space for the wine cooler is properly prepared. This includes provisions for necessary electrical outlets and ventilation. If your design calls for it, consider having custom cabinetry built to seamlessly integrate the wine cooler, creating a cohesive and elegant look.


Final Stages of Renovation (Toward the End of Renovation)

As the renovation nears completion, ensure that the wine cooler installation is scheduled at the appropriate time, taking into account other elements of the renovation that might affect its placement. Coordinate with the installer to ensure that the wine cooler is properly positioned, leveled, and connected.


Final Touches and Testing (After Renovation)

Once the wine cooler is in place, add any finishing touches such as decorative lighting or trims to enhance its appearance and integrate it seamlessly into your kitchen's design. Before stocking it with your cherished wine collection, thoroughly test the wine cooler to ensure it's functioning correctly and maintaining the desired temperature.
