That being said, it is crucial that you measure your desired placement site for your new wine refrigerator before you begin any construction or make any large purchases. If you do plan on installing a wine refrigerator directly into your kitchen cabinetry, make absolutely sure that your cooler isn’t too tall, too wide, or too deep for your counter top. Choosing the wrong sized wine cooler can be a costly mistake that is difficult to fix.
Ridged Foam and Fiberglass insulation are normally used in cellar construction. It is very important that all walls and ceilings be insulated. This will ensure that the temperature will remain constant and not be affected by the outside elements. If the floor is concrete apply a sealer before applying the finish flooring. This will prevent any moisture from transmitting from the ground. This moisture will rot wood and keep mastic, used to apply tile and linoleum, from setting properly.
Lighting becomes a very important part of the decor. The possibilities are endless, but make sure the lighting is air locked or of exterior grade. Use sufficient lighting to make an enjoyable atmosphere and one that is possible to see in. While it is true that leaving your lights on for long periods will have an impact on the temperature, for short periods it will not. Install a timer light to avoid leaving the lights on by accident when you leave the cellar.
Wine rack system: The beauty of an underground cellar is the vast amount of space you have to play with when it comes to designing your storage system. Depending on how you prefer to organise your collection, you may wish to dedicate a shelf to each variety or display your youngest and oldest bottles on opposite walls. However, you choose to design it, you should let your wine cellar tell the story of your passion. Stepping apart from run-of-the-mill wine cellars can add significant value to your home that, much like the wines they house, can only get better with age!
