How to Incorporate Glass Cupboard Doors into Your Home

If you want a cost-friendly way to update your home that creates the look of a larger and brighter space, add glass cupboard doors wherever you can!

Most kitchens, bathrooms, pantries, and other places in the home featuring cabinets come with standard solid doors. These are great options, but there is nothing super special about them in most cases. 

Of course, there is nothing wrong with this style of cabinet door. However, if you want to swap them out for something more modern with built-in interest and design elements, consider adding glass doors to the cupboards throughout your home. 

Switching out your clunky, solid cupboard doors throughout your home can help your space feel bigger, brighter, open, and more modern. But knowing where to incorporate glass cabinet doors in your house can feel intimidating, which is why we’re here to help you along the way.

3 Ways to Incorporate Glass Cupboard Doors into Your Property

Here are three ways you can incorporate glass cabinet doors throughout your home:

  1. Incorporate Glass Cupboard Doors in Your Kitchen 

Kitchens are the heart of the home. And with the countless hours that homeowners and their families spend in the space, the last thing they want is for it to feel dark, cramped, and have other cave-like qualities. 

One of the most effective ways to make your kitchen feel bigger and brighter without completing a major renovation is by adding glass cupboard doors to your kitchen cabinets. There are many ways you can accomplish this. Here are some of our favorites:

  • Feature Cupboards — If your kitchen has a set or two of cupboards set apart from the rest, you can swap them out for doors with glass. Whether you opt for textured, frosted, or clear glass, this upgrade will update the space and let you display your beloved dishes and other belongings. Consider doing this at your dry or wet bar, above your coffee station, or where you want to add a set of feature cabinets in the room.
  • Stacked Cabinets — If your kitchen features ceilings that allow for stacked upper cabinets, you can modernize your space by adding glass to only the higher sets. Doing this changes the look and feel of your kitchen immediately. It instantly feels like a custom kitchen with custom cabinets, which generally will cost you an arm and a leg!
    You can showcase your favorite dinnerware, china, and unique or heirloom pieces in the cupboards. Upgrade your kitchen even further by adding lights to these cabinet boxes and making your belongings focal points and art pieces.
  • All Uppers — If your ceiling height does not allow for stacked cabinets or you simply want to go another route, you can replace all your upper cabinets’ doors with glass ones. This adds variety and interest to your kitchen since your lower cupboards will still be solid. 
  • In Your Pantry — If you are lucky enough to have a pantry in your kitchen complete with cupboards, think about swapping out your standard doors with ones featuring glass.
    Glass cabinet doors will add a lot of charisma and personality to your space and make it feel a lot more customized. However, making significant changes like this can feel daunting, so start in your pantry, where it feels like less of a commitment.
  1. Add Glass Cupboard Doors to Your Built-Ins, Armoire, Sideboard, or Buffet

Does your home feature a display case, bookshelf, armoire, sideboard, buffet, or built-ins? If it does, you may want to modernize your piece by adding glass to the cabinet doors! There is no need to replace your entire piece of furniture. If you love it, just convert the current doors or swap them out for ones with glass. 

With glass doors, you’ll be able to showcase your beautiful book collection, favorite photos and memories, heirloom pieces, decor items, and more!

  1. Use Glass Cupboard Doors in Your Bathroom Designs

It is not uncommon for bathrooms to feel dark and dated or cramped and cave-like. After your kitchen, the bathroom is one of the most occupied places in your home. It is estimated that the average individual spends just over 813 days in the bathroom, which amounts to more than two years of their life! 

Since you’re spending so much time in there, it might as well be as much of an enjoyable, luxurious, and spa-like experience as possible. Adding transparent cupboard doors to your storage cabinets and vanity can instantly change your bathroom’s look, feel, and function.

You can also help your bathroom appear bigger and brighter by getting rid of your dingy shower curtain or dated framed shower doors and tub surround by replacing them with modern European doors or an upgraded version of your framed doors. Moreover, you can add a frosted or textured glass door to your water closet, instantly modernizing the space. While these changes aren’t exactly related to cupboard doors, they are a great way to incorporate glass into your bathroom design.
