Have you decided to give your kitchen cabinetry an update? Perhaps you have decided to gut your kitchen and get new cabinetry? One item to think about, cabinet glass doors. Many cabinetry companies have the option of turning your wood cabinetry doors into glass doors. You may want to take it a step further to create a wow effect in your new kitchen, textured glass. Veering away from the standard clear glass can really put the icing on the cake for your remodel.
When deciding to go with a textured glass, a few housecleaning questions. Do you have some great and interesting pieces to put behind the glass? Remember everyone entering your new kitchen will immediately gaze at what is behind that glass. If you are going to have a collection of various coffee mugs, textured glass may not be a great option for you. Glass cabinetry is meant to be a showcase. Also, glass cabinetry really should have a LED puck light installed at the top of the cabinet to highlight the beautiful textured glass and the items you are showcasing. Lastly, to really complete the look the shelves should be glass to allow the light to shine through the entire cabinet.
There are hundreds of choices, below are a few of our favorites.
Seeded glass has small air bubbles in a random pattern throughout the pane, creating an interesting look especially to upper cabinets with an LED puck light.
Another option, water glass, sometimes called rain. This glass has the illusion of a rain storm, a classy way of highlighting your cabinetry.
There are many unique textured glass such as silhouette, something you don’t see in your neighbor’s kitchen. If you are looking for something unique, this is a great option.
Frosted glass is another option, one that hides a bit more but still has a ? effect. This option is a bit more lax on showcasing items in your cabinetry so still a great option for less maintenance and still make your kitchen unique.
The possibilities are endless, do your homework and you will be stunned at the extra element textured glass can add to your new kitchen!
