Kitchen cabinets are one of the largest investments you can make in your kitchen, so it’s important that they are visually appealing and of high quality. If the cabinets in your home are looking dated or if you need a new cabinet layout to make your kitchen more usable, we recommend you consider incorporating glass-front cabinets in your design.
Glass front cabinets allow you to show off your fine china, glassware, and favorite kitchen accessories instead of hiding them behind wooden cabinet doors. Any use of glass within the kitchen is also a fantastic way to increase the perception of space, giving the kitchen a more airy and open feel. Using glass front cabinets for a peninsula is also a great way to open up the kitchen to the adjoining room, not to mention that it helps to let in additional light.
You have some flexibility in the glass you choose for your cabinet front. If you like the look of glass and the extra light and airiness it brings to a kitchen, but don’t want to worry about keeping your cabinets looking untouched all the time, frosted, fluted or reeded glass helps to add a textured look that also obscures the contents. Stained glass can also make a beautiful front to your cabinets while hiding what you store inside. You can also opt for clear glass on a particular set of cabinets, like those above the stove or fridge, where you showcase items you love but don’t use very often.
Glass-front cabinetry is also a great way to add light to the kitchen. Installing recessed lighting in the cabinets will showcase the contents of a clear glass-fronted cabinet and it will allow extra light into the kitchen through any glass cabinet door. Some homeowners have even opted to put glass front cabinetry in front of picture windows, allowing you to see all the way through the cabinet to the outdoors.
