Brick Wine Cellar: Should it be above or below ground? We would wholeheartedly recommend the below ground option. Digging a big hole under your living room or in the garden outside is a major construction job. This is not to be lightly undertaken, as it involves all kinds of other implications, such as staying somewhere else for up to a year. If you have a swimming pool and have given up swimming, or do not have children who would enjoy it, or you do not like to get wet unnecessarily, conversion of the pool becomes a simple option. The advantage of below ground cellars is that the additional insulation provided by the earth around the four sides and under the floor significantly reduces the energy cost of keeping the cellar cool by approximately 25 per cent which over the years adds up to a considerable saving as well as being more environmentally friendly.
A growing trend in cellar design is for compact and hidden away cellars, such as spiral wine cellars. These are concrete, cylindrical systems that are completely watertight to keep your treasured collection safe and can store more than 1,800 bottles! Not only are spiral cellars a fantastic space-saving solution, but with a sleek trap door design, they also look ultra-high-tech. It’s not every day that a trap door in the home leads to an impressive and beautifully arranged wine collection! Since not all wine bottles are made equal, it’s also wise to consider a versatile wine rack system in your cellar design, allowing you to house bottles of all shapes and sizes. Horizontal covers are a good alternative to standard rack designs, since these can hold varied sizes of bottles securely with the labels on display.
