The Pros and Cons of Glass-Front Cabinets
If you’re considering adding new cabinets to your kitchen, one look you may consider is glass-front cabinets. Instead of having a traditional door made of solid wood, these cabinets have doors that are made of glass. They may be entirely made of glass, or they may have some combination of glass and wood features. Glass-front cabinets have become increasingly popular, but are they right for you? Here are some of advantages—and some of the potential cons to consider—if you are trying to decide if these kinds of cabinets are right for you.
Pros of Glass-Front Cabinets
One of the pros of glass-front cabinets is that they let you display the items that usually get hidden behind closed cabinet doors. If you have beautiful dishes, decorative baking or serving dishes, or glasses that you love, glass-front cabinets let you finally show them off. If you have space, you can also use the cabinets to show off knick-knacks that you don’t have the counter space to display.
Glass-front cabinets also let light reflect around your kitchen and move freely through the areas where your cabinets are. If you have a small kitchen, this can help to make the space feel bigger. Kitchens of all sizes will feel brighter with decorative cabinets.
Cons of Glass-Front Cabinets
One drawback of glass-front cabinets is that, since everything is on display, you have to keep your dishes, glasses, and other items organized and neat. Failing to stack your dishes or line up your glasses will make your kitchen look chaotic.
Glass-front cabinets also need to be cleaned more frequently, since grime, dirt, and finger smears will easily show up.
