The Pros and Cons of Glass Front Cabinets

Glass front cabinets can instantly create an open and airiness to a room. Not only that, but they also create a great location to display your favorite dishware and decor. Keep in mind though, glass front cabinets always look good in photographs (as they’ve been carefully staged and designed), so making sure that glass fronts are a valuable input to your space is something to consider. A general rule of thumb is to display matching dishes that have a unified look. This will overall give a less cluttered look to the space.

Glass Options

With the many glass options for glass front cabinets, you’re sure to find one that works for you. Our options range from clear glass to frosted, to various deco patterns. Whichever one you choose; glass fronts can help to bring an open feel to any space! We’ll let you in on a little design secret… if you feel glass front cabinets would look beautiful in your space, but you’re concerned about clutter becoming a problem, then simply choose a glass that is frosted or that has an added deco pattern. This helps to obscure the view without sacrificing the look you’re going for.
