Regardless of how beautiful the new, modern furniture and other technological items might be, people still like to have wine cellars to store their favourite wines.
Although wine cellars are considered as a luxury in Singapore and only for the rich people only, it should actually not be the case – there are many different, beautiful types of wine cellars that could be acquired at budget prices as well. The more meticulous and creative people will be able to turn seemingly worthless wine cellars into beautiful and adorable décor for any type of home. In fact, I have found that for a lot of people, wine cellars are actually considered to be a key element of the home décor in Singapore as well.
Below, I will be trying to elaborate on some awesome ideas of how wine cellar décor could be used to beautify any home, regardless of the space available.
For people with limited space in their homes, the most popular wine cellars have traditionally been in the form of ready-made closets. With a large variety of nice looking wine cellar closets consisting of up to hundreds of spots for wine bottles, your home could gain that missing piece without risking its tidiness or space. Usually made of wood, the wine cellar closets are tall and narrow in order to best optimize the available space.
Alternatively for less spacious homes, a creative way to make a great use of the space beneath the stairs is to use it for storing wine – by doing that, you kill two birds with a stone as a wine cellar will beautify an otherwise barely usable space whilst also saving space from another place you would have put the wine cellar in. Although these wine cellars will likely require custom work, you might get lucky to find one that fits the triangular space perfectly with the shape of your home’s stairs.
On another side, if you are fortunate to have considerable space available for wine storing, you have more than a few options to make a customized, eye-catching wine cellar. The most popular wine cellar people – especially enthusiastic wine collectors- use are in the basement. By decorating the basement with either ready-made or customized wooden shelves, you are sure to have a part of the home you will be envied upon – not to mention the joy you will receive every time you step in there. Additionally, investing in a wine room-specific system which circulates the air and controls the temperature will ensure an even higher quality of the stored wines.
Although sky is the limit for the creative options people have when it comes to choosing wine cellars in a spacious home, another electrifying idea is to develop a hidden basement (usually with a floor door in kitchens) and invest in beautiful shelves along the stairs as well as the base room below. Circular stairs full of wine bottles stored along the way is one of the most beautiful scenes you will get to see!
Basically, whether you have limited or unlimited space for wine cellars in your home matters little, what matters the most is your will and dedication to make the best of what you have available. Being an enthusiastic wine collector and putting an effort into creating space for it will definitely be very rewarding. Your home will thank you for it!
