Everyday life is the special occasion!
May 13, 2014
Don't get me wrong, I'm far from being a wine connaisseur [although I appreciate a good sparkling rosé and a bubbly champagne like no one else you know], but I really love the mystique of a wine cellar, specially if there's a modern twist added to it. One of the things I have in mind for the new home is to create a full home bar as a way to entertain family and guests and I would love to have the extra supplies in a sophisticated wine cellar, to keep drinks at the right temperature and perfectly stored. Inspite of not being an expert at all, after doing my researches I came out with some essential steps to be taken into consideration while creating your own wine cellar:
1- analyse your space [with no direct sunlight] and sort out what will eventually fit there;
2 - invest in a walk-in cooler;
3 - maintain a consistent temperature in your cellar;
4 - control humidity levels under 57 percent so the cork gets no mold;
5 - add metal and glass finishes for a trendy look and wood and stone for a classical vibe;
6 - add great LED lightings, which emit virtually no heat;
7 - showcase your collection with a dual paned glass door;
8 - display your wine in a very appealing way and invite your friends over for a great entertaining time!
