Custom Wine Cellar Doors – Great Selections Offered by Coastal Custom Wine Cellars
A wine cellar door serves two important functions in the overall design of a wine storage space. First, it provides a tight seal that allows the wine cellar cooling systems to function efficiently, and helps maintain the proper climate conditions for preserving the quality of wines. Second, it creates an aesthetically pleasing entryway that reflects the personal taste of the wine collector.
Design Features of Quality Wine Cellar Doors
In order for a wine cellar entryway door to be effective in its purpose, weather stripping should be installed on all sides, and around the jambs as well. An automatic door bottom should be affixed to the bottom edge of the door to prevent cold air loss. To reinforce structural integrity and add better insulation, wine cellar doors are LVL constructed and connected with mortise and tenon joints.
Laminated veneer lumber (or LVL) has uniform structural properties that make the material strong and provide better insulating qualities. LVL is an engineered wood product that consists of several layers of wood joined together by adhesives. Compared to regular lumber, LVL is less likely to warp, shrink, or twist. Mortise and tenon is an old world method of joining two pieces together. It is a simple technique, yet proven to be strong and effective.
Custom wine cellar doors are created from different materials. They are offered in a range of styles that can suit client preferences in terms of design and functionality. The basic styles for a wine cellar entry door are wood, glass and wrought iron, or a combination of these materials.

Wood Specie Used and Dual Paned Glass Features
Wood variety is an important aspect when choosing a wine cellar door. Knotty Alder, Mahogany, Cherry, and Walnut are some of the best hardwood materials for an entryway door. Stain and finishing options (such as rustic, wheat, and chappo) are available to match or complement any existing décor.
Whether stand-alone or paired with hardwood, glass wine cellar doors should be dual paned because of the material’s excellent insulation and soundproofing qualities. Dual paned glass wine cellar doors consists of two panes that are attached and sealed together along the edges, leaving a gas-filled space that helps minimize heat transfer.
