Glass Panels in the Kitchen

It’s true, most people associate clear glass with shower enclosures in the bathroom, or maybe even frameless glass balcony railings. But glass panels can also work beautifully in your kitchen.

With the pandemic, we have all been eating at home more. A lot more. And that, of course, means that we are all spending more time in our kitchens. (Even if it is only to grab some silverware or get the ketchup out of the frig.) 

Not surprisingly, many people are noticing that their kitchen could use a little updating. The good news is that you don’t have to embark on a complete kitchen renovation project. For a lot less money – and in a lot less time – you can give your kitchen a whole new look and feel by freshening up the look of your kitchen cabinets.

 

Kitchen Cabinet Updates

When it comes to freshening up the look of your kitchen, you have several options: 

  1. Glass-fronted cabinet doors.
    • Of course, here at Florida State Glass and Mirror, we love this option. But we are not the only ones. As HGTV notes in its write up on glass kitchen cabinet doors, “There are many benefits to adding glass doors to your kitchen cabinets, the first of which is obvious: you’ll be able to see what’s in your cabinets. This offers a stylish touch that allows you to show off attractive glassware and dinnerware,” the say. And remember, you don’t have to convert all of your cabinet doors, so you can still have plenty of storage space for things you might not want on display.
  2. Painted cabinets
    • An even easier and more affordable way to change things up in your kitchen is by painting your cabinets. You can try for something simple and fresh, like all white cabinets or explore the popular trend of using a darker color for your bottom cabinets and a lighter color above.
  3. New hardware
    • You might not pay much attention to the drawer pulls and the handles on your cabinet doors, but you would be surprised by how much of a difference installing new hardware can make – especially if you pair the metal used in your new hardware with a new kitchen faucet.

If you would like some ideas about updating your bathroom, too, we would love to show you how much of a difference a new clear glass shower enclosure or frameless shower doors will make!
