Wine Cellars - Raise Your Resale Value

Jun 9, 2008
Many people today have become wine collectors. This tasty hobby, once attributed only to kings and monks, has become commonplace in average American homes. But there is really nothing average about it. Connoisseurs of fine wines find they not only love to sip the beverage, they also want to build a collection of fine wines in their homes.

Collecting wine can take up a lot of space. Imagine a collection of more than 600 bottles of vintage wine. As your collection grows, small glass-fronted refrigerator units won't provide enough storage. If you have a sizeable quantity of vintage wines, you will require a larger storage area. The options when it comes to wine cellars are nearly endless, including some that use fine woods such as mahogany or premium redwood.

Installing a wine cellar in your home will allow you to handle your wine assets quite nicely. Wine cellars are now being installed in many high-end homes, and these cellars can maintain a constant temperature between 50 and 60 degrees and include racks or shelving appropriate for storage. Some of the points that will need to be considered for a storage room or cellar are temperature and humidity control, the duration of the storage of your wines, measures taken for security, and whether you would be moving away at any time in the near future.

Wine rooms and cellars are easily created during home construction. There are many types of wine cellars that you can put into your home. Some of the classiest wine cellars have huge glass doors, giving you a peek at the goods inside. One of my favorite cellars that I have seen is one that looks like a cave, fitted into natural rock on the slope of a hill. If your home has an extra room, it could be the perfect place to create a wine room. You will need a way to control the temperature as well as fancy shelves to preserve and display your collection's best wines.

You could also have your wine cellar built by a specialized company that will come in and do the job for you. If you do it this way, the result will be amazing, but expensive. Do-it-yourself kits are also available if you prefer not to hire a contractor. Personal wine cellars, no matter how they are installed, appeal to the luxury real estate market.

Wine cellars could be the deciding factor to those people looking to purchase luxury homes. It is always an advantage to have one in your home. A mature couple I once knew was looking for a home near their place of business. After looking at many up-scale homes in their area, they selected the home with the temperature-controlled wine room.

For wine connoisseurs who prefer to have their collections near them, there are few restrictions in storage as long as money and space are no objects.
