If you have asked yourself if you need a wine room or even a custom wine cellar in your home, then you already have your answer. Just asking the question means that you have gone beyond the normal wine drinker who may have a few bottles on hand for the occasional dinner party or night in. Because a wine cellar (and, let’s face it, wine) is an investment, you should be thinking about the type of wine room you want in your home, not just whether you want one. Your wine cellar should grow with you and your collection, and unless you’re not planning to sell your home, then your home wine cellar should be built in such a way that it will appeal to someone other than you. A wine cellar, and or even a wine tasting room may be a nice incentive for someone buying a home, so make sure it is.
One benefit to having a custom wine cellar of your own, is it allows you to buy wine in bulk. Wine by the case is less expensive than one or two bottles. Wine by the case is also less expensive when it is young, and if you know wine (and if you want a wine cellar in your home, then you must know wine), these young wines, once mature, will taste better and result in a larger return on your investment. It also allows you to purchase larger quantities of a wine that you discover and particularly enjoy, to assure that you will be able to have a stock of it for the future.
How will you use your wine cellar (in other words, what prompted you to ask the question in the first place?)? Will you use it strictly for storage, will you also use it as a tasting room, or is it to be a showplace? How you plan to use it is important to know, because that can affect the way you construct your room, or at least the size of it and how the racking is designed.
If your wine cellar will be used for storage, then think about how many bottles of wine you currently have as well as how many bottles of wine you plan to accumulate. Your cellar should be able to grow with you and your collection. Make sure you can maximize the bottle storage for the space you have. If you want a wine cellar and think that you just don’t have the space, look around at unused areas. Do you have a stairwell? And, if you do, can you build out underneath it? Unused closets? Maybe you use it to build out a cellar. At Wine Cellar Specialists we pride ourselves in our ability to transform a simple barely use closet into a stunning wine room, check the wine cellar closet conversion project called Custom Wine Cellar Dallas Texas Closet and you will be surprised what can be done with a small space.
Where you build the room will be dictated by the ability to install your climate control system. Controlling the temperature is critical to ensuring your collection is protected and continues to grow in value.
If you have considered building a wine cellar in your home, then don’t ask yourself if you should build one; ask, instead, how big you want it to be and what will go inside of it. Wine Cellar Specialist the premier Dallas Texas Wine Cellar Builder! Get a free wine cellar design today.
