Wooden Rack Wine Cellar: Additionally, cold goes through the floor, spreads through the earth, and could cause condensation on adjoining house walls. If your cellar is on an upper floor, insulation of the floor is mandatory to avoid condensation on the ceiling of the room below, which if it is your neighbors could lead to very unpleasant relations especially if his ceiling plaster gives way. Similar considerations apply to insulation of the ceiling in cellars built within apartments. For upper floor cellars, check the floor loading factor. Domestic apartments are not built to take very heavy loads. A case of wine weighs 40-45 pounds. A six case high stack means a load of over 220 pounds on an area about one square foot. On 10 square feet you can pile 9 or 10 such stacks! Whether it is you or your neighbor below, structural cracks are not desirable.
Depending on your preference, you can choose between a traditional swing door, or sliding mechanism, or even a motorised cellar door that can be activated using a wireless remote control. The latter can offer added peace of mind for times when you may have accidentally left the cellar door open! Once you’re confident that your chosen materials have your wine’s best interests at heart, there’s no reason why you can’t get creative with your door’s design. Your cellar door, after all, will be the first thing your guests notice, so don’t be afraid to create a custom design that is unique to your cellar. Statement door styles can include solid mahogany doors that are reminiscent of some of the world’s grandest wineries or sliding French doors for a homely yet luxurious touch.
