Are you thinking about installing glass cabinet doors in your home?
Upgrading to glass cabinet doors is a simple and effective way to transform any room in your home. Glass doors can add a classy, modern aesthetic to your kitchen, bathroom, or bedroom.
What’s more, they’re designed to last, meaning they’ll definitely be worth the investment.
Besides these immediate benefits, there are additional reasons why you should choose glass doors over any other options for your cabinets. Read on for more insight!
1. Free Up Small Spaces
So many spaces in our homes require cabinets, especially kitchens and bathrooms. Unfortunately, cabinets do take up space simply by their nature — they are designed to store useful items.
Your kitchen may feel cramped or congested, particularly if you have an island in the middle of it. A cramped kitchen can make gatherings and other parties uncomfortable.
Luckily, you can create the illusion of larger space by installing glass cabinet doors. By displaying rather than shutting off the insides of cabinets, glass doors visually free up any space.
This is especially the case if you have cabinets along the walls at eye level. The ceiling will look more expansive with all of those gleaming, see-through doors. And visitors will feel as if they are entering a light and roomy space.
2. Display Your Dishware And Art
Glass doors offer an easy means for displaying your beautiful dishes, trinkets, and more. Your guests will be able to glimpse your wedding china on display and that gorgeous bowl from India.
In this way, glass cabinet doors are dual purpose. They still keep things safe and secure inside of your cabinets. But they can also display what you do possess, changing the visual dynamic of the entire space.
When guests at a party ask to see that new mixer, you don’t have to rummage through dark cabinets to find it. Simply point to the cabinet itself, open the door, and voila!
3. Choose From Different Types of Glass
If you’re considering glass doors for your cabinets, you have lots of options to choose from. Some people opt for smooth, simple panes of glass that clearly display the items inside of the cabinet.
But others choose panes of frosted or rippled glass to add a different aesthetic to a room. If you want to install glass doors in all of your home cabinets, you can choose different styles for different rooms.
For example, you may want rippled glass in your bathroom and clear planes of glass in your kitchen.
The variety of glasses give you a chance to pick your very own style. You’ll also be able to match your current aesthetic to any type of glass.
4. Upgrade From Existing Cabinets
You don’t have to be building a new home to be eligible for glass cabinet doors. You can install these in any set of existing cabinets.
The process really is simple. A cabinetry team simply detaches your current cabinet doors, cuts out a front panel, and inserts the glass. The re-installation process is simple and fast.
It’s important to talk to a designer before you decide to upgrade, so that you feel comfortable at every step of the way.
5. Experience Durable and Easy-to-Clean Doors
Glass cabinet doors are highly durable. Glass is one of the strongest materials out there, and so you won’t have to worry about cracking, splintering, or breaking.
You’ll also find these doors easy to clean. Depending on the type of glass you choose, you can simply spray some glass cleaner onto a rag and wipe off any dust or residue.
6. Glass Cabinet Doors Are Affordable
At the end of the day, any homeowner can afford glass cabinet doors. This is especially the case if you already have cabinets in place and are simply looking for an upgrade.
If you don’t quite have the budget for a full home renovation, choosing glass doors for your cabinets gives you an affordable way to transform the look and feel of your home.
How To Style Your Home With Glass Cabinet Doors
Unsure how to style your home once you’ve got those beautiful glass doors installed? Here are a few tips.
1. Decide What to Show Off
Take advantage of the fact that glass doors display cabinet interiors, and showcase only what you want to show off.
For other items you don’t want to display, like kitchen utensils or silverware, store these in drawers or opaque cabinets.
Choose items that are colorful, intriguing, or artful–just as if you are hanging paintings!
2. Take Advantage of the Light
Glass cabinet fronts will let in a lot of light, so take advantage of this. Display items that are colorful, shiny, or translucent.
Offset items in your cabinet by choosing bright focus pieces for counter tops. This may mean setting out gleaming vases in primary colors, or storing your kitchen supplies in see-through Mason jars.
Make sure to keep cabinet doors clean so that dust doesn’t hide what’s inside.
3. Introduce a New Color Scheme
Your new cabinet doors give you so much freedom to change up your home aesthetic. Introduce a new color scheme by bringing in new towels, dishware, or appliances.
If your colorful dishes are finally on display, choose a theme that works off of these. Introduce a new rug, hang some new artwork, or plug in a more modern-looking toaster.
You don’t have to change a lot to transform a room, particularly a kitchen.
Why You Need Glass Cabinet Doors
Glass doors offer homeowners an affordable and expressive way to transform storage in any room. You’ll be able to choose from a variety of glass types and even introduce glass fronts to all of the cabinets in your home.
Glass fronts will display dishware your guests and visitors will love. You’ll have the option to introduce a new color scheme as a result. What’s more, glass doors are easy to clean and designed to last.
