May 4, 2007, Newsletter Issue #68: Wine Cellar Construction -- Lighting

Tip of the Week

Did you know that improper lighting can damage the fine wines in your collection?

Too much light can actually cause heat and can damage the environment you've worked so hard to create in your cellar. So, when planning your wine cellar construction, pay close attention to the lighting. You want enough light to be able to read labels. You don't want so much light that it can damage your wines.

If you want enough light to use the room for entertaining, be careful that you don't use so much that it creates heat, especially near the racks. Track lighting, recessed lighting, and sconces all work well in the right situations.

Check with a design professional before you begin your wine cellar construction to choose the lighting that's right for you and your cellar.
