Wine Cellar: Wine cellars are expensive investments, but they are absolutely necessary for the wine aficionados among us. Wine cellars are a construction that can really allow for you to explore your creative freedom. Wine cellars can be in your house or in your backyard, underground or above ground, built-in or stand-alone. There are some exceptionally creative and compact wine cellars popping up all over the place these days, so don’t think that a lack of space will prevent you from realizing your desire for a home wine cellar.
Wine Refrigerator: You don’t need to be a sommelier to know that wine is picky when it comes to its storage needs. Wine refrigerators are endlessly useful for not only chilling wines that you plan on serving that evening, but also for wines that you plan to age for a significant amount of time. Wine refrigerators come in a variety of sizes, with dual-zone temperature control and other handy features. You need to have a good idea of your budget as well as your typical wine inventory at your house before you commit to one of these coolers.
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.
Easy accessibility removes any psychological (and physical) barriers to bringing out more bottles. Should the cellar be glass fronted, or have a glass door? This depends on how much you want others to see what you have (or do not have!). It is all really a matter of personal preference and lifestyle. Advances in glass technology have made it possible for double glazed glass walls or doors to be used without the exterior becoming clouded by condensation, especially liable if the livingdining room is not kept air conditioned around the clock. Incidentally, double glazing is very expensive.
