How to Build The Custom Wine Cellar of Your Dreams
15 Sep, 2017 Wine Cellar
Your wine collection is growing, can your wine cellar still accommodate it?
Craig and Diane MacAllister was caught in such kind of dilemma when a limited storage hindered their quest for new wine collections. Fortunately, they found the best solution by having a custom redwood wine cellar constructed in their home in Fairfax. By then, they had a worthy trip in Europe and California because they brought home a handful of different wines.
Their 100 square foot state-of-the-art wine cellar can hold up to 1700 bottles. Made with custom redwood and mahogany racking and shelving, glass work for cabinets and doors, created with multi-tiered lighting and a 55 degree temperature needed to preserve fine wines.
Good thing the MacAllisters chose Michael Nash Design, Build & Homes, the expert in building wine rooms and storage. The client noticed the exceptional performance of the builder in a wine cellar showcased in their showroom located on Lee Highway.
How about you? Maybe it’s time to build a wine cellar which will not only secure all your treasured bottles of wines, but will match your modern lifestyle as well.
Here are some things to consider in building your dream wine room:
It is very important to choose the right flooring materials for your wine room because it serves as a base that carries the weight of the cellar. There are three things to keep in mind when you select your flooring which includes weight, durability, and appearance.
A wine cellar commonly consists of heavy stuff such as racks, cabinets, furniture and obviously wine bottles. Ideally, you should build your wine cellar at the bottom part of the house and must have a flooring, strong enough to hold up the heavy elements of the room. Apart from durability, you should also look into the style of flooring that will complement the room decors. Most preferred materials for flooring are stone, mosaic, tile and brick.
However, if you want to place your wine room at the top of your living space, then you need to consult the expert in home building and design.
Storage is the vital part of a wine room because it holds all the essential elements such as wine bottles, glasses, and bottle openers. Yet, you should also consider the style.
For items that are not worthy to display, you can store them away by building cabinets. On the contrary, for the items that you want to show off, open shelves and racks are the perfect storage.
If you’re done with the overall functionality and durability of your wine room, then move forward to the finishing touch – the decor. In this area, you can show your creativity and personal side by selecting the type of lighting, the adornment that matches the ambiance you desire, etc. Furthermore, decors can enhance the beauty of your wine room.
The required temperature to properly preserve wines is 50 to 55 degrees Fahrenheit. You need to maintain such temperature to avoid aging your wine earlier than the normal time length. Lighting also affects the taste of your wine, so make sure that your wine room is situated in an area away from the direct light of the sun.
There are still a lot of things to deal with in building the perfect storage place for your treasured wines such as electrical, cooling and moisture control.
With the right builder, no doubt you can accommodate all your precious wine collection and even protect them.
