Doors & Lighting: Two more elements that can have an effect on the environment of a cellar are doors and lighting. Doors must be of an exterior grade with a full weather stripping. If a cooling unit is being installed, without the weather seal the cellar will not maintain its proper humidity or temperature levels. This is the most common problem with cooling units running continually. Solid core doors, or doors with glass inserts, make sure the glass is double thermo pane and tempered, are used most often.
That being said, it is crucial that you measure your desired placement site for your new wine refrigerator before you begin any construction or make any large purchases. If you do plan on installing a wine refrigerator directly into your kitchen cabinetry, make absolutely sure that your cooler isn’t too tall, too wide, or too deep for your counter top. Choosing the wrong sized wine cooler can be a costly mistake that is difficult to fix.
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.
Things to Consider Before Building: A custom built wine cellar in the home is not as difficult an undertaking, nor as formidable an expense as you might fear initially. Ideal storage conditions for wine are simple, the bottles must be stored in a vibration free dark environment, lying horizontally and undisturbed, the temperature a constant 52 - 57 degrees Fahrenheit (10-15 degrees centigrade), and relative humidity no less than 70 percent. Where shall we put it? If one had the freedom (or luxury) of being able to carry out structural alterations (or even better, build from scratch), our personal preference would be a location with easy access from the living or dining room, preferably the former.
