Consider the space you have to work with, the size and weight of the unit and make sure to add the additional weight for the wine which averages about 3 pounds per bottle. When building a new home the best time to think or install a wine cellar would be when the home is being built, make sure the specs include such things as a cooling system, shelving and storage, if you live in an existing house find a space and make sure you plan it out well. The degree and the speed of the temperature change are critical to successfully storing and aging wine. Expertise lies in getting the temperature just right. Temperature is at the top of the list for the reason that it is the single most important factor to consider when planning or installing your own wine cellar.
To store wines in your the cellar you will obviously require wine racks. Now how you want these racks to be placed in is your own individual choice. The most common way of building these racks is having them up against the wall. You can buy already made wine racks and get them fitted in your cellar or you can custom make these racks but make sure they are made from sturdy material.
Wine Cabinet: If you are a modest collector or someone who is limited on space, a great wine storage option for you is a wine cabinet. These cabinets can hold a dozen or more bottles of wine and often have spaces for wine glasses and other accessories. You can place these cabinets in any room in the house, and because they have doors, they provide for better light and climate control than a table-top or novelty wall-mounted rack. These cabinets will probably not be large enough if you have an extensive collection, but they are a great way for you to store your wine safely if you are just beginning your wine collection.
Now that you have an idea of the quantity of wine to store, and the size of your space, it is time to start browsing. If you have a small amount to store and no floor space, a hanging wine rack would work best. You can find hanging racks made of wood or metal. Some may have shelves above for storage, or may simply hold bottles. They come in designs ranging from vintage to traditional to modern. If you have a small amount of wine and are looking for something more traditional, try a wine holder that stands. Some are made just to hold wine, or some have table tops like a small end table. You may also look into caddies that allow enough space for pouring drinks on the top surface and storage below.
