Kitchen Design: Glass Front Cabinets

There are a myriad of options to consider when selecting cabinetry for your kitchen. Wood species, finish, door style  . . . you name it. One option we often float by clients is glass front doors. Glass front doors create visual interest, can break up long walls of cabinetry, and offer a place to display pretty collections or dishware.

Whether the glass is clear, frosted or pebbled, painted a contrasting color, or even wallpapered, be deliberate about how you style those shelves. Display your dinnerware and glassware in organized stacks. All white dinnerware is always a good idea. Or, display a collection of antiques or colorful glassware.
