Classy and Functional Ways to Use Glass in Your Kitchen

The most practical way to incorporate glass into your kitchen is by opting for glass-front cabinets. These transparent cabinets can display valuable possessions and can be illuminated for ambiance. You can transform your kitchen by removing the recessed part of wood cabinets and replacing them with clear, frosted, etched, and other types of glass. 

If you’re tired of the monotonous look of wooden cabinets, check out the examples below to learn about five different styles of glass-front cabinets. 

Number One: Frameless Glass-Front Cabinets

Most glass-front cabinets have a wooden frame with a panel made of glass in the center. If you want to be the envy of your neighbors, going for frameless glass-front cabinets is the way to go. These cabinets have one sheet of glass for the entire cabinet front. 

Moreover, they’re one of the most modern glass-front options available, as they create a sleek appearance with their transparent hinges. 

Number Two: Glass-Front Peninsula Cabinets

Some kitchens boast a peninsula that divides the cooking space and an adjacent space, such as the dining room. Peninsulas are accessible on three sides. 

Although this type of storage is practical, many homeowners believe it makes their kitchen feel closed off. Fortunately, adding glass-front cabinets to a peninsula enables light to shine through and creates an open, welcoming vibe. 

Number Three: Decorative Glass

Both framed and frameless glass-fronts come in several different patterns and finishes. If you’re feeling adventurous, consider the following customized options:

  • Frosted glass
  • Etched glass
  • Stained glass
  • Colored glass
  • Seeded glass
  • Silvered glass
  • Fritted glass
  • Fused glass
  • Digital art glass

You can’t go wrong with any of these choices!

Number Four: Sliding Glass

Once popular in the ‘70s, sliding cabinet doors are in style again. They glide on a recessed track both from the top and bottom, allowing two sheets of glass to travel back and forth as doors. Best of all, a professional can drill a hole into your glass so you can enjoy a finger-pull opening mechanism, instead of installing a clunky doorknob. 

Number Five: Tall Glass-Front Cabinets

Are there big items you need to store in your kitchen, such as brooms and mops? Gone are the days of stuffing them behind your refrigerator when you invest in tall glass-front cabinets. You can use these tall cabinets to house large items that must remain in the kitchen, such as cleaning supplies, big pots, and appliances.
