Is your wine collection outgrowing the kitchen cabinets? or perhaps you are a wine connoisseur in the making?

Adding a wine cellar to your home or investment property may seem a little over the top but look at the future buyers and the potential that the wine cellar means for your property. By adding a wine cellar the dollars you are asking gives your property that extra most buyers are looking for so having a wine cellar is a definite plus.
You must note that a wine cellar will not add value to the property but what it does is adds a feature that causes the purchaser to choose that property over another. If you have an investment property wouldn’t a wine cellar be a fantastic extra to increase your return on investment even more when it comes time to sell? Here are some options available in Australia.

Bookcase turned wine cellar
In some properties you have have too much ‘display space’ which turns into unusable space, well, why not turn your bookcase into a wine cellar? It’s relatively cost effective you can add doors to maintain temperature and humidity levels as well as locks to ensure safety. This way you can have your wine displayed and be utilising all available space.
