11 Mar Changing the Way You Store Your Wines
The extended lockdowns in many regions throughout the country have changed the way we live. Interestingly, it has changed our buying habits too. People that love their wines have found that in situations like the current one, it can be a challenge to source the reds and whites they want at the time they need them.
The simplest solution to this problem is to have suitable drinks cabinets installed in your home. Experts in the wine cellar market state that over the past year, there has been a significant rise in the demand for all forms of wine storage including custom-made cellars.
Unique Wine Cellar Designs
Not everyone would have the need and space for a full-fledged, elaborate underground wine cellar. However, creative and experienced designers can easily create superb compact installations for all types of settings. Wine cellars have now become a mainstream feature in many homes in Australia.
The pandemic has acted as a catalyst to boost this trend. Some people are serious aficionados that want dedicated rooms to store and display their precious wines. Others prefer to use creative wine storage options within their interior décor scheme to make a statement. Here are some interesting wine cellar options:
- Compact Underground Wine Cellars – These installations are a smaller version of standard underground installations. A 2m to 3m hole is dug into the ground (in either the kitchen or living room). This hole is accessed via a trap door that is flush with the flooring in the room.
The trap door isn’t hidden under a rug, piece, or furniture. Instead, it is showcased to create a focal point in the room. Many people opt for glass trap doors for their wine cellars and add LED lighting inside, creating quite a stunning display once the lights are switched on and the perfectly placed bottles are a treat for the eyes as well.
- Wine Walls – This is another way to store your wines in space-saving, climate-controlled storage. Skilled designers can incorporate these wine wall cabinets into a new build design or as an addition to an existing space. The cabinets are perfect for homes without much space for a dedicated wine cellar or wine room.
Planning your Custom Wine Cellar
If you are remodelling or renovating your entire home, and need some wine storage options, this is the perfect time to install a wine cellar. If you are planning to buy more than just basic wines and store them for some time, you would need more than standard racks. Longer-term wines are typically purchased by the rack and it means the bottles would need to be stored correctly. The right temperature and humidity levels are crucial to maintaining wine quality when you store it in your home. You also need to make sure that the space where you are building the cellar is vibration free and away from direct sunlight as movement and the UV rays of the sun can affect the texture, flavour and colour of the liquid.
Discuss your requirements with the wine cellar designer and determine what type of storage would work best for you. The different options available include climate-controlled wine cabinets and walls, and wine rooms. A custom designed wine cellar is the perfect solution for serious wine collectors and those who want to ensure that their collection stays in good condition.
While you do have the option to rent space in a commercial, climate-controlled wine storage facility, it isn’t easy to access your wines when you need them. Once you have a well-designed and well-planned wine cellar in your home, you have the flexibility to get the bottle you want, exactly when you want it.
