Small Custom Closet Walk In Wine Cellar with Custom Cabinetry, Sink, Decanting Space, High Reveal Display, and a Custom Wrought Iron and Glass Door
This traditional custom wine cellar is gorgeous and simple too. This wine cellar has already drawn you in from halfway across the room. The striking artistic wrought iron and glass doors on this small walk-in wine cellar are magnificent. There is no door style that matches better for a traditional wine cellar like this. On a traditional wrought iron and glass door, it is imperative to make sure your glass is dual paned and thermally insulated. Glass is a poor insulator, and temperature flows through it easily. This type of door is fantastic visually, but if it doesn’t meet halfway in making the room function properly, you can expect to see problems with your cooling system much sooner than expected.

Upon seeing the location of this space within the house, Gene Walder and the knowledgeable team at Vintage Cellars knew that to really take advantage of the room provided, (which is actually below the stairs), they needed to get rid of the original door and add a brand new one facing the main living space.
