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.
For flooring, cover the insulation panels with plain wood (plywood), preferably overlaid with a thick synthetic carpet which can cushion dropped bottles and minimise breakage. The optimum cooling equipment is not domestic air conditioners but industrial refrigerating compressors, situated outside the houseapartment and connected to evaporators in the cellar, which are best mounted on the ceiling to save wall space for the racking. It is better to provide over rather than under capacity of cooling because it imposes less strain on the compressor. And insist on high quality equipment, especially the controlling thermostat. A faulty thermostat could cause the compressor to operate non-stop, leading to temperatures of 50 degrees fahrenheit or more below zero, with absolutely disastrous and irretrievable consequences to your wine. Provision of an alarm set to go off if the temperature goes beyond preset minimum and maximum temperatures is essential.
