Choice of lighting
Sub Floor Wine Cellar: The major (very major) disadvantage of below ground cellars is water, water leaking into the cellar. If you are on high ground, it is less of a problem, but not eliminated entirely. The best advice is three words: waterproof, waterproof and waterproof. And do not believe your architect or contractor when they tell you that the waterproofing they have provided is the industrial standard. Do like the airlines. Operate on a 200 percent safety factor. For below ground cellars, a dumb waiter (50 kg load sufficient) may be a luxury but is an enormous help. Carrying a heavy case of wine up the stairs is not easy.
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.
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.
