If your a wine enthusiast, you’ve no doubt dreamed of building your own wine room, so you can collect good wine without having to worry about temperature fluctuations, sun and proper positioning. A wine cellar in NJ is within range of most homeowners and adds value to your home. However, you want to make sure that you get the most for your money. To do that, consider the following design tips:
1. Be realistic. It’s easy to get carried away when you’re making plans for wine rooms. After all, those pictures you see online are beautiful. However, will you really have the funds to keep a 200 or 500-bottle room fully stocked?
2. Choose a convenient location. Having a small wine room located right off of your kitchen (in a re-fitted pantry or closet) might make more sense than a large room in the basement. You’ll be more likely to use the room that’s close to the kitchen.
3. Don’t opt for too many accessories. Wine room features like a tasting island, glass racks, lead glass windows or even television sets can personalize your wine room. However, too many accessories can make your room look crowded and take away from the room’s primary function–to store wine.
4. Avoid UV lighting. Some wine sources feel that UV lighting can compromise the quality of the wine, just as sunlight can. Better to stick with incandescent lighting for your wine room.
