For that perfect built-in wine cooler in your home space, Enofaber can provide that perfect luxury cooler that will be the right fit for you - choose the width of the wine cooler required below for a snug fit in your kitchen cabinets.
Before you decide to purchase a built-in wine cooler you must consider your options before you jump to making a decision. Include options such as the bottle capacity needed, the storage space available to you in your home, and where you wish to place your wine cooler.
What Is a Built-In Wine Cooler?
Built-in wine coolers are designed to fit into pretty much any space within the kitchen counter or cupboard space for a seamless and professional finish. They come in a range of sizes, with different bottle holding capacities to cater for each client's individual needs and space available to them.
Built-in wine coolers are a must-have for all wine lovers who wish to store their wines at the optimum temperature for storing and serving wine, including different varieties.
The 15cm/150mm Wine Cooler
Made with a super slim and sleek design, these wine coolers are only an impressive 15cm wide. They are not only great to fill a small space or gap in your kitchen but are great for smaller kitchens that don’t have much storage space - a sleek and narrow design of a 15cm cooler will not take up much of what might be already limited kitchen counter storage space.
The right ventilation has to be considered when having a built-in wine cooler fitted into your kitchen - so you may need a professional installer to help you install your cooler to ensure the right needs are met for your new device. A lot of models these days have ventilation systems built into the front of the cooler instead of the back to maximise the potential of the cooler's ventilation, instead of it being behind where more complications can arise when being fitted into counter space.
Can These Coolers Be Freestanding?
Some of our Enofaber 15cm wine coolers operate as freestanding units also, giving you the option to choose which way you would prefer to store your cooler, for easier installation or without disturbing your kitchen counter space you can opt to keep your cooler freestanding. Place wherever you need as long as the correct ventilation surrounds the cooler, with the advantage of being able to move your cooler around. Be sure to check the specification of each cooler to make sure you can store it both ways before doing so.
What Colours Do These Coolers Come in?
The main colours that the 15cm/150mm come in are black and stainless, these both give a really smart appearance to the coolers and will look really professional in your home.
How Much Space Does My Built-in Wine Cooler Need?
Built-in wine coolers usually need at least 0.25cm on either side which fits into kitchen units. This is so the door can open fully on either side of the cooler. Some units require more space than 0.25cm so it is always best to check the details and measurements of the cooler you are interested in buying and installing before you make the purchase.
Can I Change the Way the Door Swings Open?
Yes, you can usually change over the way the door opens on its hinges as most modern coolers allow for you to do this. This way it gives you the flexibility to install it whenever you wish to in your kitchen without limitation and regardless of your kitchen layout.
What Is the Difference Between Integrated and Built-in Wine Coolers?
There is not much difference between an ‘integrated’ wine cooler and a ‘built-in’ wine cooler, and you have likely come across both terms. Both are designed to fit seamlessly into the interior of your kitchen space, built-in is designed to be installed under-counter space or inside of cabinets and integrated are designed to fit into cabinet space - so there is really not much difference at all.
How Many Standard Bottles Can a 15cm/150mm Wine Cooler Hold?
Most of the wine coolers that are 15cm wide can hold up to 9 standard Bordeaux bottles which are stored horizontally on slat shelving for optimum storage.
Can These Smaller Coolers House Larger Bottles Than the Standard?
Check the specifications, with some coolers you will be able to remove the shelves to make way for larger wine bottles to be stored and some shelving will be fixed in some coolers. Bear this in mind when you decide on your cooler and think about what you will need to store inside it.
Can the Grille Be Covered?
No, the grille is crucial for ventilation. It is what is used to expel air out of the cooler, blocking or covering it will hinder its ability to work properly and could damage your cooler and therefore the quality of your wine too.
Single or Dual Temperature Control?
Due to their smaller size, most of these coolers are single-zone units, operating at temperatures between 5°C and 20°C. If you like to enjoy different types of wine then you will not be able to store different wines at their optimum temperatures as white and red wine have different perfect storage temperatures.
Great Features of Built-in Wine Coolers
These 15cm/150mm built-in wine coolers may be small, but they still boast a range of benefits and include great features despite their smaller size compared to other coolers on the market.
Humidity control is a feature that all of our coolers have, it is essential for the storage of wine, as well as a UV-treated, double-glazed glass door so your wine does not get disturbed by harmful UV rays or other light sources, which can cause chemical reactions to the content inside of the bottle.
A digital temperature display helps you easily read and control the temperature inside the cooler at all times accompanied by internal LED lighting to show off your wine as a feature on display.
With an efficiency category rating of F or G for these small and sleek they are small so don’t use up as much energy or make quite as much noise as some of the larger models we are stock.
