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?
Wine cellar doors are the first thing that guests see when they purposely visit other people's wine cellars. It is therefore important that it should impress at first glance and leave a long-lasting sense of pride and fulfillment for the owner. As aesthetically important as it is, it's also one of the most vital because it helps your cooling system in sealing in the exact thermal conditions needed for wine to mature beautifully.
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.
Time Tested Old World Methods Coupled with the Latest Technology. Wine cellar doors must be weather-stripped, insulated and durable enough to prevent warping, which can be avoided if you construct the joints properly. The most familiar types of wood joints used are dovetail, butt, tongue and groove, rabbet, dado, lap, mortis and tendon, and miter but the most widely used is Mortise and Tenon. It has been the method of choice by woodworkers for centuries because it is simple to do and yet so durable.
