Choosing the right door for a wine cellar is important because you need something that is durable, airtight and attractive.  When comparing the different choices out there when shopping for wine cellar doors, there are a few simple tips to keep in mind.  First, consider a wooden door if you’d like to have some custom carving work done or to stain the door to match your shelves.  Plain wooden doors work as well, just make sure that they are built to be used in a wine cellar and aren’t just your cheap standard door from the local home improvement store.

Glass door might be the best option

If you opt for a glass door, make sure that it’s insulated or that it’s made from thermal glass panels.  This option will be opted in order to make it completely airtight.  Etched glass is also a great option for those who are looking for a custom design. It can also result in a wonderful piece of art that is both attractive and functional.  Wrought iron pieces can also be added to either glass or wooden doors, offering an additional level of décor.

Finishes with your personal touch

Keep in mind that no matter what type of wine cellar doors you choose,  it pays off. Invest in some engraved signage with your cellar name, add some mood lighting and invest in a few pieces of artwork to showcase along with your wines.  Before you know it, you’ll have a wonderful space to show off your wines and a safe place to store them as well.
