And wine is most certainly one of them!

There's nothing quite as nice as a refreshing glass of wine...

And many of us enjoy indulging in this alcoholic treat after a long day at work or on vacation with our friends.

Wine is one of the most popular alcoholic beverages in the world...

And it is often seen as a sophisticated and elegant drink that is paired with good quality and expensive foods.

Well, most of the time it is...

Perhaps it's best not to mention the infamous "wine hangover" that comes after drinking a little too much of the stuff.

Wine comes from many different regions in the world...

The nicer the quality of the wine.

This means that wines from Australia and New Zealand are considered the best in terms of quality and taste...

And they certainly don't fail to deliver!

Which is appropriately named Murray Berrill Constructions!

And when he noticed the vast amount of unused space behind his stairwell, he decided to get creative by installing his very own unique wine cellar.

Rather than building a separate cellar, Murray decided to incorporate the stairwell with individual drawers.

Speaking to The Daily Mail, he said, "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."

It took a lot of time.

"The drawers are wide width and are very strong - we spent around $500 AUD ($319) at Bunnings just on the drawers alone," he explained. "We had to work out how all the bottles were going to fit and make sure the entire design was strong enough."

The finishing result is incredible.

The makeshift cellar is well insulated and has a thermometer installed to keep track of temperature, so Murray can make sure the wine doesn't cook in the summer months.

Murray overall spent an estimated $5,000 AUD ($3,191) on his clever creation...

But this price is totally worth it to have enough storage space for 156 bottles of wine.

Of course, the wine cellar went down a treat on social media.

Commenting on the staircase cellar, one Facebook user said, "Impressive work, you are obviously a very skilled tradesman. More than one headache in there."

The staircase can store enough wine to last a very long time.

"You wouldn't want to start at the bottom and work your way up. You would be falling down the stairs before you reached the top!" another user wrote.

Murray's handiwork goes to prove that anything is possible if you put your mind to it!
