Man Transforms His Staircase Into Wine Cellar That Can Hold 156 Bottles

Wine lovers will love this one. Murray Berrill, 58, from Bendigo, Victoria, is a wine lover and he created the most beautiful wine cellar you will ever see.

Berrill is a wine lover from Australia, and he found the perfect way to turn his staircase into a wine cellar. Australia has beautiful vineyards, and locals and tourists get to enjoy tasty wine. A lot of Australians have a wine cellar inside the house. classy, right?

Berrill owns a construction company. He found ready-made custom sized drawers in Bunnings. It’s a hardware store that offers a great number of fancy designs.

Berrill paid $500 for 12 widened and extended drawers equipped with bottle holders and turned them into a wine cellar within ten days. Up to 156 bottles can fit in this beautiful cellar.

Are you bored? This is a fun idea to try.

Berrill’s wine cellar is well insulated and it has a thermometer hygrometer to regulate the right temperature.

“I hate dead space when renovating a house, as you’re essentially paying for nothing. So we thought of putting the wine in drawers in the staircase rather than behind it. The drawers are a wide width and are very strong – we spent around $500 (£250) at Bunnings just on the drawers alone.

We had to work out how all the bottles were going to fit and make sure the entire design was strong enough.”

Berrill used that extra space to store his wine. He is literally using every inch of his house. he shared some pics on Facebook, and people really like how the whole thing turned out.

“Ok, here’s one for the wine lovers. What to do with dead space under the stairs? Create an easy access wine cellar. Proud of this one.”

His friends praised his creativity. But, they did complain over one thing. “There aren’t enough stairs.” Hilarious, right?

“The stairs on their own constructed from Australian Mountain ash and installed cost $3,100,” Berrill said. “The Goliath heavy duty draw slides, 6×1000mm, 2×900mm, 2×700mm, and 2×500mm cost around $500, plus the ply, handles, and timber components for the draws and the structure underneath, plus the time to construct and install it all, put another $2,800 on top of the cost of the stairs. A total of $5,900 (AUD).”

You can’t just ignore this beautiful wine cellar. You just can’t. it’s beautiful, handy and really useful. Berrill has the most beautiful wine cellar we’ve ever seen. Would you do anything like this?
