However, much like wine racks and wine refrigerators, it is extremely important to measure and plan extensively before you break ground on this project. Many of the rules that you should consider when building a wine rack or purchasing a wine refrigerator still apply when building your own wine cellar, but there are more considerations as well. Because wine cellars are typically meant for large-scale wine storage and aging, be sure that your cellar is sufficiently insulated and protected from the elements.
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.
