Built In Wine Coolers
This type of wine cooler are primarily undercounter units designed to sit on the floor and in most cases have kitchen cabinets built around them to created a seamless look. Built in wine coolers are designed to be used as undercounter units so they can fit neatly into kitchen cabinets.
These are available in standard widths of:
150mm, 300mm, 400mm, 500mm and 600mm – however there are a selected few tall wine coolers that can be built in as well.
Built in wine coolers can also be utilised as freestanding wine coolers, the only difference being they have a vent at the front to allow for enough ventilation to cool the compressor and evaporator.

Integrated Wine Coolers
These are designed to sit inside a kitchen cabinet that is open at the back for ventilation. This type of wine cooler will sit alongside ovens, integrated coffee machines and microwaves creating a floating, seamless look.
Available in standard heights of: 455mm, 595mm, 885mm, 1234mm and 1778mm – integrated wine coolers are manufactured to match the same sizes of other kitchen appliances, such as integrated ovens and microwaves.
This type of wine cooler can also be ‘fully integrated’ with a few wine coolers allowing a kitchen cabinet door to be attached to the front of the door.

Freestanding Wine Coolers
This type of wine cooler is a great addition to any home and comes in a few varieties such as ageing cabinets and multi-purpose wine cabinets which can be used to store wines whilst holding a small selection at serving temperature.
The number one misconception in the wine cooler industry is that a freestanding wine cooler is designed to be used as an undercounter wine cooler. When utilised as a built in unit, this type of wine cooler will overheat and void the manufacturers warranty as it has no way of drawing in cool air to cool the compressor and evaporator. A freestanding wine cooler should be well ventilated meaning at least 3-5 inches around the sides of ventilation space and they should never be enclosed from above.

Luxury Wine Walls UK
Wine walls are something slightly different to a traditional wine cooler, our refrigerated systems are suitable for home use or for commercial environments.
With an array of sizes with varying bottle capacities, you can build your wine wall to fit any decor by choosing the frame, lighting options and other finishes - the possibilities are endless.
Elite Wine Fridges carries a substantial range of wine walls with some that are suitable for freestanding use only and some that have the ability to be built in with cabinetry around them, just like the integrated and built in wine coolers mentioned above.Shop Wine Walls
A wine cabinet is a freestanding unit designed specifically for the long-term storage of wine, there are two varieties with the main difference being the material they are produced from.
A typical wine cabinet is constructed from metal and are designed to maximise bottle capacity whilst keeping the bottles stored at the ideal storage temperature and humidity all year round. Some models are even equipped with a winter protection system, which means you can safely use your cabinet in colder conditions for example, in a garage / outbuilding.Shop Storage Cabinets
