Wine refrigerators can either be stand-alone or built-in, each offering their own perks. Stand-alone wine refrigerators allow you to place them almost anywhere in your house, and you can move them around whenever and wherever you want. A stand-alone unit can also help you avoid costly and time-consuming kitchen renovations. However, many people prefer the luxury of a built-in feature, which can save room and offer a sleek look to your kitchen.
Airflow and ventilation: Since wine thrives best in cooler temperatures (and ages more slowly), the importance of adequate airflow and ventilation in an underground wine cellar cannot be over-emphasised. Maintaining good airflow to your cellar will keep it free from any persistent odours and will ensure a healthy and long-life for your wines. The room adjoining your wine cellar is known as the exhaust room and if you want your cellar space to stay at a cool and constant temperature, the exhaust room will require a cooling unit. A cooling unit will blow cool air into the cellar at a 45-degree angle, which then pushes warm air to the ceiling. This warm air is then brought into the unit and passes into the exhaust room – helping to regulate the temperature in the wine cellar.
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.
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.
