4 Ways to Transform Your Basement Into A Wine Cellar
28 Aug, 2015 Wine Cellar Basement
Most homeowners place their wine bottles in their fridge because not everyone has a wine cellar. But real wine enthusiasts believe that this is a not a good idea. They understand that wines should be placed in a proper storage area such as the wine cellar. The best place to store your wine cellar is in your basement.
Take these tips on how to transform your basement into your wine storage area.
Tip 1 – Add Insulation
Now that you will turn your old, junky basement into an elegant wine cellar, you have to update your insulation. Not only would this save on energy consumption, but it will also be great for your wines. Every area needs different insulation, so have your basement assessed by your designer.
Tip 2 – Install Wine Room Specific HVAC
Heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning systems are necessary for every wine cellar because they keep the right balance of temperature and humidity. However, you set a budget for the HVAC systems – they can be costly depending on your specific needs.
Tip 3 – Use Proper Lighting
One of the best lighting expert in the country suggests using the Cree LEDLRP-38 bulb because they are cost effective, have dimmers, and are of a high quality standard.
Tip 4 – Consult With A Pro
Unless your an expert in wine cellar design, never do this project on your own. Tendency is that more time, money, and effort would be wasted if the wine cellar isn’t properly built.
Tip 5 – Select Wood For A Natural Look
A wine cellar expert suggests using wood which only needs mineral oil finish including mahogany and walnut.
