Designing & Building a Wine Room

Wine cellars are unlike any other room in the house. They have specific ambient requirements and may need a unique layout and lighting to maximize the presentation. We recommend working closely with a wine room designer to make sure you don’t forget anything important. Here are the factors to consider before building your wine vault:

  • The size of your collection: For many people, installing a wine cooler in the kitchen is sufficient. Built-in, countertop, and freestanding models are available, depending on your kitchen layout, floor space, and aesthetic preferences. Wine coolers can store up to one or two dozen bottles. If your collection is larger than this, or you plan on expanding it, a dedicated wine room may be the answer.
  • The size and location of your wine room: You can store a collection of up to 250 bottles in just 30 square feet of storage space, plus an adjacent utility room. Just remember, a wine room should have no direct sunlight, so an interior room in the basement or a vault built off the kitchen is best. Then, you’ll want to illuminate the space with LED fixtures to minimize heat gain.
  • Temperature and humidity control: Maintaining the proper conditions is critical for any wine room. You’ll need a way to keep the temperature around 55 degrees F and the relative humidity near 60 percent. Adequate insulation and air sealing, plus a dedicated HVAC system, will be necessary for year-round temperature and humidity control.
  • Your personal style: A wine room isn’t just about preserving the value of your collection—it’s about creating an elegant presentation and making your prized bottles easily accessible. The Bud Matthews Services team can help you pinpoint your preferred style—modern or traditional, rustic or Tuscan—and implement it in the wine room design.

For help addressing each of these considerations, please contact Bud Matthews Services today. Our design-build experts would be happy to meet with you to discuss your wishes.
