Humidity control is another valid concern. Damp air keeps wine corks from drying out, which forces the cork to stay expanded and ensures a firm seal. Laying a bottle on its side will also ensure the cork remains moist on the inside, which is just as important to keep the cork swollen. The ideal humidity level for your cellar is 55%-85%. If you’re concerned about humidity, buy a hygrometer to measure your cellar's humidity level. You can always install a humidifier if your cellar is dry, but be careful not to let the humidity rise much above 90% as this will cause mold to grow on the corks.
Choosing the right door style: All the effort that goes into creating the ideal wine cellar can quickly be erased by choosing the wrong type of door or opening. More important than its aesthetic appeal, the door to your wine cellar needs to be made of material that will provide an air-tight seal and prevent cooling loss. To strike the balance between beauty and function, glass cellar doors can make a good choice. Just make sure that the glass is well insulated and also tempered to prevent shattering. A renovation builder will help you to choose the best quality materials and appropriate door type for your cellar’s entrance.
