It’s a question we get all the time: “Will a wine cellar increase the value of my home?” The quick answer is yes. But there is a caveat, which we will explore below. With more people getting into collecting, storing and, of course, drinking wine, it makes sense that wine cellars and wine rooms in homes are becoming more popular. Let’s take a look at how and why you might want to add a wine cellar to raise your home’s value.
According to a 2019 article from MarketWatch.com, wine rooms in homes rank No. 3 in improvements you can add that will raise a home’s value. Statistics show that a dedicated place to store and display your wine collection can increase your home’s value by up to 31%, obviously a significant figure. But to really reap that added value, you need to make sure you do things right. You’re not going to raise the value of anything if you simply stack some bottles of merlot on a shelf in your living room closet and call it a “wine room.”
