This luxurious home in Atlanta, Ga., features a glamorous wine cellar. Glass doors provide beautiful views of the homeowners' collection, while black-and-white tiles ground the space. A cool, sophisticated chandelier brings in light.
A small coat closet was torn out and revamped into this refrigerated wine cellar, complete with porcelain tiled surfaces that resemble wood texture and a chrome cable system that's suspended via bolts in the ceiling and floor. The 8-foot-tall entrance is outfitted with a commercial-grade glass door and chrome frame reminiscent of what's used for hotel elevators.
Bold wallpaper and framed art set a traditional tone in this inviting wine cellar. The wine cooler is integrated into a row of cabinets with a marble countertop –– the perfect set up for a wine tasting party.
Your basement or crawlspace is usually the coolest spot in the house because of the insulating effect of the ground. That means that warm, moist air coming inside condenses on surfaces, including your pipes, causing dripping or sweating. Besides being annoying, dripping raises the humidity level in the house and increases the chances for mold growth. To reduce this problem, make sure all vents to the outside are closed, and add foam pipe insulation to the parts of the pipes you can reach.
