How to Choose the Right Glass Wine Cellar Door for Your New Kitchen

When designing a new kitchen, every detail matters, and for wine enthusiasts, incorporating a wine cellar can add a touch of style and sophistication. The wine cellar door is not just a functional element; it's a statement piece that can enhance the overall aesthetic of your space. If you're considering a glass wine cellar door, here are some key factors to help you make the perfect choice.


Understand Your Space

Before diving into designs, assess the space where your wine cellar will be located. Consider the size, lighting, and temperature conditions. Glass wine cellar doors are fantastic for showcasing your collection while maintaining a controlled environment, but they need to fit seamlessly into your kitchen's design. Some kitchens may already have a void, or basement staircase that dictates the cellar door location. 

Choose the Right Type of Cellar Door

DioMet provides a variety of design options, such as a classic ring pull handle, a sleek integrated streamline handle, or a sophisticated electrically operated unit. Opt for the ring pull for a rustic or industrial vibe, the streamline handle for a minimalist aesthetic, or choose the electric system for larger doors and a touch of luxury.

Consider the Colour

Our standard offerings include steel frames and painted glass borders in classic black, yet the anthracite grey RAL 7016 is a customer favourite. We also accommodate custom orders, allowing you to select from a spectrum of specific colors to perfectly align with your kitchen's design and your personal style.

Think About Safety

Protecting your wine collection is crucial, as it represents a significant investment. It's important to secure it from unauthorized access by guests, children, Airbnb visitors, or pets. Choose lock options that blend security with aesthetic appeal. Our manual units come with standard traditional locks, while our electric systems offer enhanced security features. Select the one that best suits your requirements for safety and style. For cellar doors placed in prominent locations with higher foot traffic, our non-slip treatment is a must, and has no visual affect on the glass clarity. 

Aesthetic Appeal

The visual impact of your glass wine cellar door is significant. Decide whether you want a clear view of your collection or if you prefer a frosted or etched glass for a more subtle reveal. The door can also feature custom designs or patterns that reflect your personal style.

Installation and Maintenance

Correct installation is essential for ensuring the durability and functionality of your wine cellar door. Our units arrive fully assembled for straightforward setup by any skilled individual, yet we recommend hiring a seasoned tradesperson for optimal results. Maintenance is generally hassle-free, involving regular glass cleaning and routine checks of fixings or electrical components as advised by the supplier.


DioMet provides an array of stock hinged glass floor units, ready for immediate use, alongside the option for custom-sized orders to meet your specific needs. If time is of the essence, adapt your space to accommodate our readily available stock units. For those with the flexibility to wait the typical 8-10 weeks, a tailor-made size can be produced to your exact specifications.


Selecting the right glass wine cellar door for your new kitchen involves balancing functionality with aesthetics. It's an opportunity to showcase your personality while ensuring your wine collection is stored in optimal conditions. Take the time to explore your options, consult with professionals, and choose a door that you'll love for years to come.
