Glass presents us with numerous design options in kitchen layout now. I’ve noticed a pair of doorways above a bar area or some kind of display cabinet have become almost commonplace. However, there is so much more we could do with glass which makes its existence in kitchen layout an important option to take into account. If you’re seeking to use some glass on your kitchen, here are some methods to make the glass something special.

Light the inside of glass cabinet doors to help show off what’s in the cabinet. It is most common to use glass doorways in a bar area or display cabinet. However, don’t simply install some glass doors without even thinking about what’s inside. By putting lights within the cabinetry and using glass shelving, you can definitely highlight your “fancy” eyeglasses. This light is also perfect for producing a nightlight in a kitchen for a moody atmosphere.

Another great (and easy) bar area. Glass doors show off glasses and some prized champagne. By putting a cabinet panel on the drink fridge, all of the focus is moved up to the display area.

Use the back of the cabinet to bring some extra texture or color. Within this black and white kitchen, both top cabinets with glass doors and the display cabinet to the right of the fridge are given particular attention with a splash of lemon yellow inside.

Use glass (or wire in this instance) in a more functional area for a completely different look. Admittedly, his one may be an issue for those people who are a little OCD. However, if you’re fastidious enough, an open pantry can be very art-like. All it requires is a bit arranging to make it actually work.

Utilize glass to balance out other elements. Within this elegant and traditional kitchen, the glass cabinetry on each side of the big vent hood help balance the weight of the fixture by “extending” out the weight. In a feeling, it lessens the overall effect and produces all components feel cohesive and unified.
Venegas and Company
Highlight an intriguing architectural shape. The Gothic-inspired insets from the glass door would get lost if put on top of a door. By putting a light within these display cabinets, we may see the strong patterns of the filigree work.

In a somewhat different vein, these glass cupboards are all about bringing different feel and shape to the doorways which contrast with the strong grain pattern of the wood. By keeping all the dishes white within the cupboards, it retains the whole look from being too active.

Glass doors lighten up an whole room by dividing the surface. It’s a well-known actuality that in the event you’ve got a large surface and you throw a different substance from the combination, it will help break up the overall weight of everything. Glass top cabinets were utilized to give everything a mild visual weight in this quaint kitchen. The frosting on the glass helps hide what’s behind the doors so that it does not feel cluttered.

Use opaque glass for a very different look. Few designers as well as fewer homeowners have taken the risk is using an opaque glass in their own designs. However, it may do something which neither translucent glass nor timber can do — it provides a super durable, high gloss surface. In this dark and white kitchen, the reflective nature of the black glass uppers helps prevent them from becoming too thick. Besides, they’re sexy!
