Wine Cellar Inspirations: Prepping Your Wine Cellar For The New Year

December 28th, 2016

We’re about to bid adieu to 2016! For sure, we’re going to take some really wonderful memories to kick-start our 2017. And for you, fellow wine lovers, what better way to ring in the New Year than by making sure your wine cellars are all prepped for bigger and better things. We’re here to help you out with some of these useful tips!

Weed out the old stuff!

Time to weed out the “old” stuff…

Now we don’t mean wine bottles here. Weeding out the old stuff means getting rid of wine cellar racks and/or furniture that might need replacing or refurbishing. It’s time to take an inventory of your wine cellar and see what’s up! Don’t wait until the racks get moldy or rusty (for metal ones). If a good stain or finishing job is all that is needed, by all means get to it. Nothing like the holidays to get real work done because hey, you actually have the time to do it. Of course, if you invested in really good quality wine racks, there shouldn’t be a problem – just get them nice and clean and polished (or finished) and you’re all set for the New Year.

Time to expand to accommodate your collection…

The holidays is indeed the best time to think about and actually carry out expansion projects. If you’re a certified wino, the New Year can only mean one thing – more goodies for your wine cellar. Take the time to analyze how fast your collection grew over the past year and what you need to do to accommodate future acquisitions. Also, don’t forget those huge post-Christmas and even bigger post-Boxing Day sales! If you’re going to add more wine racks, make sure to choose those that can be easily mixed and matched. That way, you won’t have any problems adding more units in the future.

"Prettify" your wine cellars!

Time to “prettify” your wine cellars…

If you think this will cost you a small fortune – don’t.¬†Updating the look of your wine cellars can be done just by investing in a few choices accents and accessories. Since the color of the year for 2017 is green (or to be more specific, “matcha” or green tea green), why not invest in some gorgeous wine cellar art depicting vineyards or scenes from old wine country. We also recommend decorating your wine cellar with flora and other greenery. These will not only give your wine cellar a nice pop of color, they will also make it look fresh. Of course, make sure to consult what type of plants and/or flowers can thrive best under wine cellar storage temperature and humidity levels.
