What You Most Keep in Mind About Wine Cellar Flooring
You wine cellar flooring should be able to support the weight of your entire , the wines, furniture, cabinetry, and other items in your wine cellar. When building wine cellars above the ground, we have to follow the rule that 500 bottles is equal to approximately 2,000 pounds or a ton.

Wine Barrel Flooring Adds an Old World Feel to Your Wine Cellar
Oak wine barrels play a crucial role in storing wines before bottling. They impart flavors, tint, and texture to the wine. After several years, wineries thought of a way to recycle the used barrels. Instead of letting them go to the landfill, Classic Custom Wine Cellars and many builders in Texas use re-claimed wine barrels to make stylish wine cellar flooring. We break down the barrels into long strips and engineer them to create unique flooring. We engineer the wood to create planks with 5/8″ thickness.
Wine barrel flooring adds a historic touch to your wine room. Depending on your preference, you can choose between three kinds of barrel flooring: Stave, Cooperage, and Wine Infusion.
Stave Wine Barrel Flooring
We use the exterior parts of the wine barrel to make stave flooring. The metal hoops, which bind the staves, contain various markings that will make this type of flooring unusual.
Cooperage Wine Barrel Flooring
In addition to the exterior parts of the oak barrel, we also utilize the top and bottom sections where you will find cooper stamps that are used to iden-tify the vintage stored in the barrel and the logo of the winery. No two strips contain exactly the same markings.
Wine Infusion Flooring
The inner portion of the barrel has a reddish color. The shades of red were imparted by the wine stored in the barrel. Using the wine-infused side of the barrels creates a dark burgundy color on your flooring.
This tile floor also incorporates tiles painted with a beautiful grape vine for a stylish flare and personal touch.
