Large Wine Cellars - Over 2,000 Wine Bottles
A growing collection needs not just space - it needs adequate space. Adequate space means there should be enough for future acquisitions as well. For wine lovers who started out small but are now steadily growing their bottles, a large wine cellar is the perfect solution. Here are some great tips to help you build a giant wine cellar along the way.
How much space do you need for a large wine cellar?
A large wine cellar is one that can store over a thousand bottles. It will provide more bottle storage than a medium-sized one. That's why there should be enough space allocated in one's home for its construction. Location is important when building a giant sized wine cellar, but it's not a deal breaker. You can construct anywhere in your home where there is enough space. It doesn't always have to be the basement. Other areas in the home will suffice, such as an empty room, the garage, or even the dining area or kitchen.
Think carefully about the wine cellar theme
Put some careful thought about the kind of theme you'd want for your wine cellar. Decide on this prior to construction. There will be more elements to consider as this is a bigger project compared to a medium-sized wine room. It's not just about the kind of racking units for your wine bottles. Also think about the type of material you'd want for your wine cellar ceilings and floors, as well as your walls.
Let's say that the space you've allotted is quite narrow in terms of dimensions. You can utilize glass materials in your design to make it appear more roomy. Go for a combination of high ceilings and glass panels. We also recommend using shallow-depth wine racks that can give you more bottle storage space. Lighter-colored racks and wine cellar furniture will make your space appear larger and less cramped. So go for stains and finishes that will not deepen the colors of your wood too much. We recommend checking out our Whitewash and Opaque White stain options, as well as our photo galleries, for more stain and finish inspirations.
Select the proper wine cellar cooling unit
This is a very key detail in any wine cellar project. It becomes even more so when you're talking about bigger sized wine storage. You will have to choose the right one, taking into account the varying brands, sizes, and specs. Keep in mind the location and bottle storage capacity of your wine cellar when choosing your wine cellar cooling unit. It has to be one that can meet your wine storage demands.
The bottom line here is that the wine cellar cooling unit will be able to maintain ideal wine storage conditions 24/7. You cannot have a unit that will not be able to deliver this because that will be a huge risk on your wine bottles. But you also need to ascertain that you are not going to purchase a unit that will make your electricity bill go haywire. We suggest running a heat load and BTU cooling unit analysis prior to making the purchase. This will greatly help in selecting the best wine cellar cooling unit for your large wine cellar.
