Wine—the drink of choice for many for celebrations, dinner parties, or simply a relaxing night on the couch. Keeping an opened bottle of wine in your refrigerator works just fine to keep it cool, and putting unopened bottles on a small rack on your kitchen counter looks nice, but some wine enthusiasts might want to store their wine collection with a little more flair. An ideal place to keep wine is in a wine cellar. Fancy restaurants don’t have to be the only ones with wine cellars—you can have your very own right in your basement!
Here are a few reasons you should make a wine cellar basement your next basement renovation project in Northern Virginia:
1. Basements are Great Spaces for Wine Cellars
Basements are typically cooler than the rest of your home, which is more ideal for wine storage than a warmer environment. Having a proper storage environment is essential for the best aroma and taste of your wine. A basement is also a great place to build a wine cellar if you know you want to renovate your basement but don’t know what you want to do with the space. If you love wine and home remodeling, a basement wine cellar is the project for you.
2. Wine Cellar Basements are Unique and Beautiful
How many people do you know with a wine cellar in their basement? Turning your basement into a wine cellar is a project that will really make your home stand out and impress your visitors. This is especially valuable if you might sell your house in the future; renovation projects can do wonders to increase your home’s equity.
When designing your basement wine cellar, you can also fully customize the space to create a design that will complement the rest of your home’s appearance. Choose a solid paint color or textured wallpaper for the walls, pick between laminate or hardwood for the floors, and decide which style of light fixture to use. You can design each detail of your wine cellar and turn it into the most gorgeous room in your house.
3. Have Wine on Hand for Holiday Parties
Fall is here, and winter will be on its way before we know it. The autumn and winter season is full of holidays, and many homeowners in Northern Virginia are excited to host their own parties, with plenty of wine available for guests. With a whole wine cellar in your basement, you won’t have to worry about running out in the middle of your party. You can also be sure you’re serving your guests high quality wine from a thoroughly chilled and ventilated environment, which is sure to boost the wine’s taste and impress your guests.
4. It’s the Perfect Time for Wine!
We know what you’re thinking—what time isn’t perfect for wine? But fall and winter, with cooler temperatures and some unstable weather, is the ideal time of year to stay inside and curl up under blankets, glass of wine in hand. What better way to spend the fall and winter season than making trips down to your own personal wine cellar for delicious wine?
