The 15cm/150mm Wine Cooler
The array of 15cm/150mm wine coolers that are available features a super slim and sleek design whilst maintaining an impressive 15cm width. Not only are these perfect for smaller kitchens in which you’re seeking to fill a smaller space (or gap) in your kitchen - but they are ideal if you do not have much additional storage space whilst still being eager to house your favourite bottles of wines.
The sleek and narrow design of a (15cm) 150mm wine cooler is the ideal remedy for this as it will not take up much space at all while still looking amazing and providing sufficient storage space.
Prior to purchasing a storage solution for your wines, you need to take into consideration the right ventilation. As such, you may need the assistance of a professional installer to help install your new unit. Most of the models these days have ventilation systems built into the front of the cooler rather than the back to maximise the potential of the cooler’s ventilation. Units that have ventilation in the back often experience difficulties over time given the lack of sufficient space for the wine cooler.
Can These Coolers Be Freestanding?
Some of the 150mm Built-In Wine Coolers can indeed operate as freestanding wine cooler units. Allowing you complete freedom of choice relating to the location of your new wine storage unit. So long as you not potentially harming the airflow of the ventilation system - you are free to display your wine cooler in any location you choose. We do suggest that you 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 wine coolers come in are both black and stainless. These two options provide an element of elegance and smartness to the coolers as they will look fantastic in both your home and professional workspace.
How Much Space Does Your Built-in Wine Cooler Need?
Relating to how much space your built-in wine cooler needs, we often suggest at least 0.25cm on either side of your kitchen units. Doing this means that you can open the door with ease on either side of the cooler. Some units may need more than the recommended 0.25cm, hence it is always advisable to assess the details and measurements of the cooler you are interested in purchasing and installing before making your 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 you to do this. This will grant you the flexibility to install the door in whichever way you prefer without limitations and regardless of your kitchen layout.
What Is The Difference Between Integrated and Built-in Wine Coolers?
Relating to whether there is much of a difference between integrated and built-in wine coolers, essentially there is not much difference between integrated wine coolers and built-in wine coolers. This contributes to the fact you may have heard both terms mentioned whilst relating to the same product. In essence, both are designed to fit seamlessly into the interior of your kitchen space, and built-in is designed to be installed under-counter space or inside of cabinets and integrated are designed to fit into cabinet space - resulting in there not being much of a difference at all.
How Many Standard Bottles Can a 15cm/150mm Wine Cooler Hold?
Traditional 150mm wine coolers can hold up to 9 standard Bordeaux bottles, which are stored horizontally on slat shelving for optimum storage capacity. The 15cm built-in wine coolers are fantastic options to store your favourite wine bottles and having them displayed beautifully in your home.
Can These Smaller Coolers House Larger Bottles Than the Standard?
We recommend that you assess the specifications in order to determine if smaller coolers can house larger bottles. The reason for this is that you will find that in some coolers you will be able to remove some shelves to make way for larger wine bottles to be safely stored. As such, we suggest that you keep this in mind when you are contemplating purchasing a particular wine cooler and assess what you aim to store inside of the unit.
Can The Grille Be Covered?
It is strongly advised that you do not cover the grille as it is crucial for ventilation. The grille is what is used to expel air out of the cooler, blocking or covering it will hinder the ability to work properly and could damage your cooler. In addition to this, the quality of your wine will suffer as a result.
Single or Dual Temperature Control?
Due to the smaller size of the 150mm wine cooler units, most single-zone units operate at temperatures between 5°C and 20°C. This is something that you need to consider, especially if you are a lover of the vast choices of wine. These models mean you will be unable to store your various types of wines at their optimal 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 a myriad of features despite their smaller size compared to other coolers on the market.
One such feature is humidity control, something that all of our available wine coolers have. Humidity control is vital for the storage of wine as well as a UV-treated, double-glazed glass door so that your wine does not get disturbed by harmful UV rays or other light sources - this can cause chemical reactions to the content within the bottles themselves.
A digital temperature display helps you easily read the 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 stock.
