Miscellaneous Concerns: Wine cellar doors ought to come with a threshold, door sweep and perimeter seal. These seals permit the door to be weather-stripped on all three sides to keep out drafts when the door is shut. Weather stripping is a necessity for the entrance to your wine room, otherwise your wine cooling system works less efficiently and your climate controlled air will move into the area outside the wine cellar. Are you purchasing a custom wine room door? You will need measurements of your door jamb or entryway and you must decide whether you need handles or locks. Some vendors will not install locks or pre-drilling. If you want to put in a lock in these cases you will need to do the job yourself based on the design specifications of a particular lock.
Understanding Cellar Door Properties: Your cellar entrance should be an exterior grade door which is very sturdy, able to withstand constant change in temperature and keep outside air from leaking in. It should be durable and insulated to avoid warping. All doors should come with automatic bottoms or combination of door sweep and threshold (to avoid cool air from escaping), and perimeter seal. These allow openings to be sealed protecting the wines from spoiling due to air leaks. In the case of glass doors, they should have dual-paned, tempered and thermal glass.
Doors that Mirror your Personal Taste and Accomplishments. Wine cellar doors are essentially stylish exterior doors. It mirrors your disposition and lifestyle so you must customize it according to your taste. Carve your family crest on the wood or etch your initials on glass and have them framed in similarly designed wrought iron. You can distress the wood further to give it the weathered look of an old style European wine cellar door. Match your French door with elegant sidelights and transoms. A good stain and finish will heighten your door's aesthetic qualities. The possibilities are limitless but the point is it should mirror you.
The most aesthetically significant part of your wine storage area is the door. Wine cellar doors are also considered important part of the design and building process. When your guests visit your cellar, the first thing they will see is your doors. In view of the fact that so many cellars are situated in the living space at the present, they are also an essential part of the overall room design.
