A: Wine storage cabinet styles are as varied as wine storage racks and other storage accessories found in your wine cellar. Some have better amenities and they are not all made with the same quality and artisanship. Inspect all aspects of a wine storage cabinet before you make a purchase.
What type of hinges does the wine storage cabinet contain? For example, you cannot use a piano hinge on a wine storage cabinet because it will cause the door of the cabinet to close improperly. How durable are the walls of the wine storage cabinet? This is significant because you will be storing bottles of wine, some of which may weigh up to 3 lbs each. The construction of your wine storage cabinet must be able to stand up to the weight of the wine bottles it will hold.
A quality wine cabinet will have these features:
- Insulated panel construction
- No particle board
- Insulated, low E glass
- Exterior-grade door seals
- Solid wood door frames (when applicable)
- Integrated levelling feet
- A quality cooling system
