Choosing the most appropriate flooring: Like the walls and shelving, the floor of your wine cellar should be incredibly resilient and resistant to moisture. Some good choices for durable floor material in your wine cellar are brick, stone and tiled flooring. More expensive, but luxurious flooring options for wine cellars, include marble and hardwood. For something a tad different, cork flooring can make for a durable, rather fitting choice! As for flooring no-no’s in your wine cellar, we should stress that carpeting of any kind should be avoided at all costs. The cool, damp conditions of the cellar will only cause mould and mildew to form – not a good look or smell for your home wine cellar.
Wine Racks and Case Storage: Avoid fluorescent illumination which ruins wine. Standard lighting is the regulation required moisture proof bulkhead lighting using normal LED lamps. Adequate lighting helps to locate bottles. Some form of racking and shelving is needed. The choice is very personal, and depends on whether it is a showcase type or a working cellar. There are designer built racks of hard wood which will provide an impressive display but are very expensive. The alternative is a mix of bins, rectangular, square or diamond shaped (recommended), and single bottle racks, with additional below counter level shelves for unbroken casesboxes.
