Sometimes the direction your doors open can be an issue. When thinking of which way your wine doors should hinge, consider the positioning of your wine storage racks or accessories close to the doors, and how wide you need to open the doors should you have to bring in a crate or case of wine bottles. If you need additional clearance than the interior of your wine room can offer, make sure your doors can swing open to the outside, and don't forget a doorstop or additional add-on to prevent the doors from striking the wall. Wine doors are an essential aspect of your wine room. Selected wisely the doors can help your wine cellar function properly and create a great first impression to your visitors.
Door Sweeps or Door Bottoms? As part of your wine cellar door's weather stripping process, it should include a threshold system. Thresholds seal the bottom part of your doors. Sweeps are commonly used since they're easier to install. Sweeps are basically strips of a certain flexible material, like rubber, that are screwed to the bottom part of the door. They tend to drag on the floor a lot which is a problem because they're easily subjected to wear and tear. Door bottoms might be the better choice since they're just popping up or down, therefore there's no dragging on the floor.
