Anyone can have a wine cellar nowadays!


Wine cellar locations

Traditionally, wine cellars were underground, however, these days, with climate control options available, a wine ‘cellar’ can live under a staircase, in a walk-in-cupboard, or in a roof space. Yes, you read that correctly a roof space!

Wine cellars can be as small or as big as you like! It just takes some ingenuity to find the right space in your home. 


Creating a full dedicated space 

If you have the space, a full wine cellar room is the way to go. Look around your home for spaces you don’t use often. Maybe it is the theatre room or the extra living room in your house that you don’t really use. 


Let me paint a picture for you…. Cosy up on some leather couches or around a tasting table, indulge in a platter of matching cheese and sip on your favourite bottle of Merlot with some soft music playing in the background.  Why would you not turn an idle room into a room you enjoy? If you have the space you can make the whole room into an enjoyable escape right in your home! 


Cellar styles

There are many types of styles of wine cellars. 

  • Rustic and old – using materials such as stone, old, reclaimed timbers and exposed brick 
  • Cool and contemporary – recessed spotlights, glass panels, and dark oak timber
  • Transitional – a blend of wood elements (to keep with the traditional look of a wine cellar) blended with modern elements like glass doors and modern tiles to tie the cellar’s look into the 21st century.
