Normally, solid wood is used for the core of the door because it is easier to customize like hand carved wine cellar doors, hence, making them more attractive. Unfortunately, solid wood tends to warp and shrink over a long time. Using stiles and rails as reinforcements would only diminish your customization options. A choice that could be considered for a door core is Engineered Wood. Unlike solid wood doors that require wide diameter trees, you only need quick growing, small diameter trees to manufacture engineered wood.
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.
When using glass, keep in mind to use multi-paned glass, or insulated glass, to take advantage of its anti-condensation properties. Insulated glass prevents condensation by utilizing a gas-filled layer in between the panes. This sealed-in gas prevents the cold inner glass from making contact with the normally warm outer air, which causes condensation. Furthermore, multi-paned glass allows you to make use of stained glass which is basically just a single pane glass. The empty layers give you more space for the type of designs you want on your custom wine cellar door.
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.
