Use the stairs to your basement as wine storage

May 20, 2013 1 min read

If you're a wine connoisseur, you might be facing the problem of finding a place in your house to keep your bottles. Even if you don't have a priceless collection, the last thing you want is for your favorite reds and whites to spoil because they have been stored under the wrong conditions. 

For this reason, many homeowners searching for a place to keep their collection of wines has decided to use a part of their finished basement for a wine cellar. Rather than portion off an area that's currently being used as living space, why not put the area under your stairs to good use holding your wine bottles?

You have a few options while doing this, depending on how you want to store your collection. If you have a finite amount that you're planning on holding, you may want to have a wine refrigerator installed here. This can be a great tactic, since all of your favorite wines will already be at the optimal drinking temperature and you don't have to worry about having them spoil as time goes on. If you're seeking a place to keep the wines that you're planning to drink more immediately, you might opt to have shelving installed to hold the bottles secure until you drink them. 

No matter what,  make sure that this new storage area coordinates with your stair parts. You can have trim installed around this new storage nook that matches your treads or handrails so that it really blends in nicely with your surroundings.
