Any wine connoisseur would love a private wine cellar, preferably with a tasting area. This gallery should inspire you. Yes, most are on the luxury side, but it actually doesn’t take much to turn unused basement space into a custom cellar.
Look closely at some of the wine storage racks and you’ll see they aren’t that expensive to have built or build yourself. Line the walls with racks and place a small table in the center and you have your own cellar.
Of course, you can spend tens of thousands of dollars picking out the right design (several of our featured rooms are a testament to this) and that’s just the cost of the room… you still need to stock it with booze which can cost many more thousands of dollars. Another option is to buy a home bar.
If you also like fine liquors and beers, the room can easily accommodate those beverages as well. Finally, take a look at thebottom of this gallery for some very nice liquor cabinets you can get to start your collection.
