Hopefully the above mentioned tips have given you a better understanding of what’s needed in creating the perfect underground wine cellar for your home. To ensure your wine-cellar is quality-made and everything you hoped for, be sure to enlist the help of a renovation builder to bring your ideal wine cellar to life. The experienced renovation builder will appreciate that your wine collection is your pride and joy, and therefore will aim to deliver an efficient and high-quality wine cellar for your home.
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.
You may not be ready to construct an insulated room with a built-in air conditioner that will ensure perfect temperature regulation. The important thing is to keep temperature fluctuation to a minimum. In the summer, the temperature in your dining room may balloon to the mid-80s in the middle of the day then fall to the mid-60s during the night. Excessive temperature fluctuation will cause the wine to expand and contract in the bottle, which will draw in air through the cork and cause oxidation.
Wall, Ceiling & Floor Coverings: What type of finishing materials should be used? There are certain ones not to use, but what it really comes down to is a matter of taste and budget. The cellar usually has a decor theme that is carried throughout the interior. The walls and ceilings are often covered with drywall and then plastered or painted (when painting only use a latex covering). If drywall is used we recommend that a waterproof drywall be used for added protection. Cedar, Redwood and other wood coverings can be applied to the walls and ceiling, usually in a tongue and grove application. This can provide a uniform look to the cellar especially when the racking material is the same wood as the wall and ceiling coverings. Stone, granite or even ceramic tiles can be used as wall covering material.
