In our last blog post we talked about some of the different cabinet door styles available to customize your kitchen. Another great way to add customization and instantly upgrade your kitchen, is to add some glass doors or inserts to your cabinets.
LOOKING FOR A CUSTOM REFACE?
Glass cabinet doors add a certain beauty and elegance to any kitchen and they will work with just about any style. Glass inserts boost a kitchen’s appeal by breaking up the visual impact of cabinets that are all one color and will make the room seem bigger and more interesting.
Glass Insert Styles
Glass inserts are available in quite a few different styles. Before making the decision on what type would be best for your kitchen, think about what you’re main purpose is for your glass cabinet doors. You could choose a completely clear glass if you wanted to highlight some special vases, fine china, or champagne flutes. On the other hand, If you don’t want to worry about keeping your shelves perfectly organized, you could get a similar effect to clear glass by installing a frosted glass that will obscure the shelf contents. There are also glass styles available in many different textures, these include beveled, leaded, etched, or even patterned glass.
You don’t have to replace your existing cabinets if you are thinking about making this change, you can just modify a few cabinets in a couple of well-placed locations. For example, adding glass inserts to some of your higher cabinetry, a pantry, or just a few on two opposite ends of your cabinet banks would give a beautiful, finished look, while making a huge impact.
