Glass Cabinets

It's time to show off those new wine glasses you got for Christmas.  Why hide them behind a solid cabinet door?  These days more and more homeowners are utilizing glass in their kitchen cabinets to reveal their fine china, glasses and other decorations.  Some styles include an all-glass door while others simply use glass insets built into the door.  The latter is commonly referred to as mullion doors.  Either way, it's a good way to make use of the light coming into your kitchen and to give it more surfaces to bounce off of.  After all, if you spent so much money on your beautiful cookware and glassware, why hide it?  It's time to show it off!  Start by getting some ideas on current designs and trends by watching the video by Cabinets TV to your left.

As you may have guessed, there are many options for you when it comes to glass cabinets.  The most important thing to consider is the type of glass itself that you'd like.  Do you want to be able to see through it clearly?  Do you want some sort of texture in the glass?  Perhaps stained glass or a specific design to match your kitchen decor?  All of these options are possible.  As long as the cabinet door is large enough to hold the glass insert you'd like, the design possibilities are endless.  To help you understand the glass options, we have provided a basic list for you below:

Types of Glass

  • Bubbled
    • Just like it sounds-air bubbles injected into the glass
  • Camed
    • Has strips of metal between the pieces of glass
  • Etched
    • Contains unique carved designs in the glass
  • Frosted
    • Looks like frost, makes the glass not as clear
  • Layered

  • Mullion
    • Has strips of wood between the pieces of glass
  • Textured
    • Choose from a variety of textures to accent, textures make the glass less see-thru
  • Stained Glass
    • Multiple design options here-choose colors, objects and designs you'd like in the glass

Final Thoughts

There are a lot of cabinet brands out there that offer extensive lines of glass cabinets.  To research the brand that is best for you, visit our Cabinet Brands section which will give you an overview of what each can offer.  Regardless of who you choose, remember that when it comes to designing the cabinets for your home remember to also keep in mind functionality.  If you have kids who have dirty hands, remember that a clear glass pane on a cabinet is going to show all of their finger prints.  Also, if you decide to go with a stained glass look with specific colors, it is advisable to choose neutral colors in case you'd like to change the overall look of your kitchen in the future.  If you choose wild colors in your glass and you'd like to tame them down a bit, you'll need to get new glass inserts.  Pick a color or design that you're comfortable with that and will last for years to come.
