Glass Door Wine Cellar: The size of cellar is likely to be the subject of endless debate within your family. You should opt for the largest possible space you can devote to it, relative to other demands for living space and to budget available. If you are obsessive compulsive as wine lovers tend to be, the likelihood is you will need a lot more space than you think. Think of the number of bottles you would like to keep, double it and then double it again, and you will not have any regrets. The cellar can also double as dry foods storage. However, avoid storing strong smelling foods. Wines pick up odors despite corks and capsules.
Wooden Rack Wine Cellar: Additionally, cold goes through the floor, spreads through the earth, and could cause condensation on adjoining house walls. If your cellar is on an upper floor, insulation of the floor is mandatory to avoid condensation on the ceiling of the room below, which if it is your neighbors could lead to very unpleasant relations especially if his ceiling plaster gives way. Similar considerations apply to insulation of the ceiling in cellars built within apartments. For upper floor cellars, check the floor loading factor. Domestic apartments are not built to take very heavy loads. A case of wine weighs 40-45 pounds. A six case high stack means a load of over 220 pounds on an area about one square foot. On 10 square feet you can pile 9 or 10 such stacks! Whether it is you or your neighbor below, structural cracks are not desirable.
