Having Your Own Wine Cellar at HomeJuly 19, 2012
As a luxury amenity, having your own wine cellar at home spells sophistication and a refined taste in drinks. If you’re planning on having a wine cellar custom made, the following are some tips to keep in mind:
Decide whether you want to do it yourself or hire a company.
If you’re something of a handyman, you can actually create your own wine cellar at home. There are now do-it-yourself kits for wine connoisseurs who want to build their own cellar. However, if you want a professional company to do it, look for a contractor who can create your dream wine cellar.
Think of a design.
Some of the classiest wine cellars have unique designs, such as a cellar that looks like a cave built into a hill slope. Another design worth checking out is the spiral wine cellar. A spiral cellar is actually a modular and cylindrical system that’s also watertight. It is built under your home and can be placed under your garage, living room, or kitchen. Because a spiral cellar is located underground, the system takes advantage of the natural insulating capabilities of its surroundings.
Aside from being a luxury statement, adding a wine cellar at home can actually increase your home’s value. This is especially helpful if you wish to sell your luxury home and get a good price for it.
