Lighting, flooring, and construction are all things you need to consider when you build a wine cellar. So are vibrations and odors.
If you place your cellar near a laundry room or air conditioner unit, the vibrations from those appliances could be enough to shake your wine racks and stir up sediments.
Since most wine bottles are still sealed with cork, and cork breathes, if there are odors around your wine cellar, the wine can absorb them through the cork. So, before you decide on the final placement for your cellar, do some homework and your wine cellar construction will be stress free!
