Glass Door Wine Cellar: The size of cellar is likely to be the subject of endless debate within your family. You should opt for the largest possible space you can devote to it, relative to other demands for living space and to budget available. If you are obsessive compulsive as wine lovers tend to be, the likelihood is you will need a lot more space than you think. Think of the number of bottles you would like to keep, double it and then double it again, and you will not have any regrets. The cellar can also double as dry foods storage. However, avoid storing strong smelling foods. Wines pick up odors despite corks and capsules.
Insulation and vapour barriers: A poorly insulated wine cellar will cost you more than a few ruined bottles in the long run. Storing your wine correctly means keeping temperature and humidity levels under constant control, so you’ll need to invest in the kind of insulation that’s up to task. In maintaining the correct insulation of your underground wine cellar, you’ll need to install a vapour barrier to keep your cellar free from the humidity of the surrounding area. A vapour barrier generally consists of a closed-cell spray-on insulation foam and should be placed on the warm side of your walls and ceiling. This keeps moist air inside, whilst preventing condensation developing on the outside of your wine cellar walls. Consequently, being able to control the amount of moisture in your cellar will help to conserve energy and prevent mould growth too.
