Wine cellars should be a part of every house. There, we said it.
But is it possible for every type of house, no matter how big or small, to have a wine cellar? That largely depends on your plans and what you’d like to do. This article will share some key tips, tricks, and advice on how to get started on your project of building a wine cellar at home. While we recommend hiring a professional contractor for major construction work, there are some ways to DIY your cellar too.
Let’s get right into it:
Choose where you’ll build it
Most people go with their basements when they want to build wine cellars because they’re underground, protected from heat and light, and the temperature and environment can be controlled. However, you can create one in a barn, in your pantry, or really any room that meets all necessary requirements such as lack of vibration, privacy, and environmental control.
Prepare the room completely
Next, begin preparing the room, using concrete sealant to prevent moisture from entering, using grout sealant for tiles, and plastic sheets and drywall. It’s extensive work but can be done on your own, so long as you know the right way to prepare your walls.
Some rooms may require additional insulation in order to help you maintain optimal temperatures, as well as minor electrical work, install new appliances like dehumidifiers, and more. This may take a few days to a few weeks, depending on who’s working on the project.
Top it off with fresh paint and mood lighting that gives your cellar a cozy, romantic vibe.
Invest in high-quality bottle racks
You can choose to construct bottle racks based on your room’s dimensions or get high-quality, readymade racks that you’ll only need to put up. These racks should be strong and well-designed so that they can safely hold your wine collection as it matures. The bottles should always be in a temperature-controlled space to keep the wine safe and stable.
Top it off with a wine cellar door
Last but not at all least is getting a wrought iron wine cellar door that will protect, organize, and store your wine bottles. It’s important for your bottles to stay safe but also look stylish. A high-quality door will also help secure your cellar. Not just that, but they look gorgeous and give your home an almost luxurious, restaurant-like feeling.
