Wine Cellar Door Construction: Custom wine cellar contractors suggest using exterior grade wine cellar doors, which are sturdy enough to withstand temperature fluctuations and keep outside air from leaking in. A good exterior grade door should be weatherproofed and acclimatized to the level of temperature and humidity in the environment where it will be installed; the humidity factor should not be ignored when picking a door. The recommended humidity for a wine room falls generally between 50% and 80%, with 70% being the optimal level. If a wine door can't survive 70% humidity without warping or added issues, it is not worth the money you paid for it.
Take the time to examine the rest of your house. You don't want the door to appear too out of place. What style of house do you own? What do the other doors look like? Is your wine cellar above ground and visible? Does it have a modern look to it that would be complemented by a modern style door? What sort of wood do you incorporate into your home?
Wooden wine doors should have rock-hard construction; by no means use a cavernous door as the entrance for your wine cellar. If you use a glass wine door, it should be double-paned to help keep exterior air out. The recommended thickness for wine room doors varies according to who you ask, but the minimum you should install for your wine cellar is one and three-quarter inches. If your wine cellar door is accessible to children or if you just want more security for your wines think about adding a lock to your door requirements.
Doors vary in that you can have several panels, panels broken up in different patterns, a smaller window, or a door that is almost entirely glass with only a wooden trim. Glass doesn't have to be transparent either. You can have glass that comes with patterns etched into it or in a frosted form. The doors themselves can come in the traditional rectangular shape or you can opt for something a little different, such as a slight arch at the top or the entire door can be arched for a more old world look.
