Building a wine cellar requires a lot of planning -- The room's location, size, and insulative properties are each important factors when putting a wine cellar together. An additional aspect of wine cellars that should not be overlooked are their entry doors -- and with multiple kinds of wine cellar doors available, it can be a little overwhelming to decide which door will work best. Here at Tuscan Iron Entries, we wanted make this process a little easier, by comparing and contrasting the various wine cellar doors that are available. Listed below are the three primary types of doors used for wine cellars:
Traditional Wood Doors
Although they're commonly used and slightly more affordable, wood doors as an entrance to wine cellars can provide mixed results. Assuming you'd want a cellar that's climate controlled, the build quality of a traditional wood door becomes very important. If a cheaper, interior grade wood door is used, there's greater chance for condensation to occur on the door, which will degrade its quality over time.
