A wine room depends upon temperature and humidity control. Good insulation, a vapor barrier and climate control system are all key components, but a huge part of climate control comes in purchasing the right wine room door. The wrong decision can force your wine cellar cooler to work harder and allow undesirable warm air inside your wine room, defeating the rest of your careful wine room development and design. The correct wine door has a seal on the entryway when the door is closed, permitting the wine cellar cooling unit to mix temperature and humidity-controlled air through the whole wine room without fighting with air entering into the room from outside the door. Whether you choose a pre-made standard door, or have one crafted to your exact specifications, all good wine cellar doors have specific classifications that make them perfect for the climate control demands of your wine cellar.
Engineered wood is made by bonding together wood strands, particles and veneers of wood using adhesives. This composite nature is what makes engineered wood so much more resistant to warping and shrinking. One type of engineered wood, which provides better insulation than normal wood, is Laminated Veneer Lumber or LVL. LVL is made by gluing together multiple layers of thin wood. It is a fairly new technology and only a few manufacturers use this in their custom wine cellar doors.
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.
Another attractive cellar door option is the glass door. It can be plain, etched or stained. Glass etching is the roughening of a piece of glass in selected areas to create a permanent design on it, thus creating an elegant look. Doors with stained glass are also attractive and can blend with any existing decor you have. Insulated glass compared to regular glass is ideal for doors because of its improved binding capacity and ability to control climate in a cellar.
