For the flooring, tile, in the form of slate, marble, stone, ceramic, or composite, is an attractive and practical material. Linoleum or vinyl is often used, but NEVER use carpet. This will lead to rot, mold and mildew from the cool and damp conditions of a cellar. Wood flooring can be used but it can be more involved. The floor must be leveled and care must be taken to leave room for expansion around the perimeter or it will buckle when the floor absorbs the moisture. There are even new products on the market, like cork flooring.
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.
