Oh, a basement wine cellar is perfect! It's naturally cooler down there, which is ideal for wine storage. As far as ideas go... I guess, just decide what style you'd like it to be (i.e. modern, traditional/rustic or contemporary). If you're going for a rustic look, wood, especially reclaimed wood, is great. Traditional calls for mahogany, redwood and the like. Modern, more... glass, metal... sleeker kind of things. When it comes to how to go about it, it's usually best to hire a professional, from my experience. Vapor barriers and insulation often need to be installed, as well as a wine cellar refrigeration unit, wine racking, and so on. I'd start by picking the area. Then, make a basic design of how you'd like your wine cellar to appear. I know Coastal (winecellarsbycoastal.com) actually offers free designs, and great consultations too. You could check them out if you wanted. They have a few projects here on Houzz... I've included some in my rustic wine cellar/room Ideabook. Anyway, there's quite a lot to do, but hopefully that is some help. Good luck! :)
