Kitchen Cabinets With Glass Doors

Jill Wolff Interior Design 1. Glass-front peninsula cabinets. Some kitchens have a peninsula that divides the cooking space and another adjacent space (often the dining room). Peninsulas are accessible on three sides. Although peninsula storage is practical, many homeowners feel that it can close the kitchen off. Adding upper glass-front cabinets to the peninsula allows for light and creates a more open feeling. Jones Design Build 2. Frameless glass-front cabinets. Traditional glass-front cabinets have a wood frame with a glass center panel. Frameless glass-front cabinets have just one sheet of glass for the entire cabinet front. More contemporary in design, they create a sleek appearance with their decorative hinges and lack of hardware.You may have to hunt for this style — many cabinet lines do not offer it. Stuart Cohen & Julie Hacker Architects LLC 3. Picture-window cabinets. What do you do when you have a kitchen that has more windows than wall space? Try putting your wall cabinets directly over the windows, like in this photo.Picture-window cabinets are designed with no back panel, so sunlight can flow through. 4. Sliding glass. Once popular in the ’70s, sliding cabinet doors have made a comeback in kitchens today. They glide on a recessed track (at the top and bottom) that allows two sheets of glass to travel back and forth as doors. Sliding glass doors sometimes have hardware that is drilled directly into the glass, but many simply have a finger pull cut through the glass. 5. Decorative glass. Glass fronts, whether framed or frameless, come in many different patterns and finishes. Shown here is a popular decorative glass known as seeded glass, which has little air pockets inside to create a textured appearance. You can have your cabinet manufacturer supply the glass on purchase, or you can have the door prepped for glass. This means that the door frame will arrive without glass, and you can have another company supply the glass. Frosted glass, etched glass, stained glass and colored glass are just a few other types of decorative glass for kitchen cabinetry. Danenberg Design 6. Glass-front base cabinets. Many kitchens have glass only on upper cabinetry, but it can look just as good below, too. Glass doors on base cabinets can deliver an extra visual punch and spice up cabinetry that faces other rooms. Keep in mind that when you’re sitting at a counter, feet and knees can accidentally hit and bang the glass, so it may not be the best design for families with active children. 7. Tall glass-front cabinets. Tall cabinets are used to house extra-tall items, such as brooms, mops, cleaning supplies and certain food items. With a glass face, these cabinets can be decorative, too, displaying decorative dishes and personal items. DKOR Interiors Inc.- Interior Designers Miami, FL 8. Painted glass-front cabinets. These cabinet doors are frameless, and the glass has been painted on the back side to maintain a wonderful glossy finish. This particular application is referred to as a factory finish. Heavy-duty epoxy paint is uniformly applied to the reverse side of the glass in a controlled environment to prevent imperfections. The end result is a perfect finish, seen through the other side of the glass.More: Houzz guides on choosing kitchen cabinets

From beveled glass to frosted glass, to smooth and crystal clear, glass cabinet doors in your kitchen put just the right finishing touch on any update to your kitchen. When choosing the glass for your cabinets, you need to decide exactly what the purpose of it is. A clear glass is going to show everything in your cabinets, so you probably won’t want it on a cabinet that will be storing oatmeal and cereal boxes, and other canned and dried goods. On the other hand, clear is a beautiful choice to show off your flatware and china, wine glasses and champagne flutes.

Buying Glass Most hardware stores carry clear glass ($3 per sq. ft.) and will cut it for free or a small fee. Ask for 3/16-in.-thick “double strength” glass. Order glass panels 1/8 in. smaller than the recess in the frame. To find tempered, textured or colored glass (more expensive), check the yellow pages under “glass.” We bought clear textured glass and paid the supplier extra to have the two panels tempered. Building codes require tempered glass for locations within 5 ft. of the floor.

Having glass kitchen cabinets doesn’t mean you have to replace your cabinets. If your existing cabinets are in good condition, you can install glass inserts instead. Adding muntins to a plain glass design that mimics the architectural designs and moldings of the house will add a sense of continuity and bring all the elements together for a finished look. Ultra-contemporary glass designs like river ice, spun fiber and deco add an artistic flair and convey a sense of drama. I really like this look on just one set of tall cabinets in one place to reinforce or contrast the tone and color scheme of a room.
