Cabinets with glass doors are making a comeback in modern home interior design, with frosted glass becoming the easier-to-clean, modern-looking front runner over its crystal-clear predecessor.
To get frosted glass for cabinets in your home, first you’ll need to have glass in your cabinets! Many older style cabinets have glass window panels, and this style is coming back in style in a big way. But if you don’t have glass panels, you have the option to replace your cabinets or perform a do-it-yourself project to insert glass panels into your basic wooden cabinet doors. Clearly one has the potential to be easier than the others!
Before taking the plunge and tearing out your cabinets, consider the advantages and disadvantages. You will be able to see into your cabinets. This is great so you can find and access items easily. This is also not great if your cabinets tend to be less than organized; You’ll need to keep them tidy for the modern feel to not feel cluttered or sloppy. Frosted glass creates a bit of mystery about what’s behind the glass, but the demand for organization is still there, a messy cabinet will still be a messy cabinet, even if it’s slightly disguised behind frosted glass.
If you’ve got clear glass in your doors already, getting them frosted is a simple do-it-yourself project. There are glass etching and frosting sprays and creams that allow users to easily frost the entire window or to create patterns on the glass for a personal touch. Keys to this project include ventilation, gloves, and carefully following the instructions for whatever product you choose to use.
If you decided to cut into your doors and buy glass to put in for cabinets, it will be best to get your glass cut to size at a home store to ensure you get the right measurements. Make sure your glass fits the opening well and that you can keep it in place with caulking.
Finally, if you choose to go the easy, but slightly more expensive route, you can merely replace your cabinets with new ones that come with frosted glass and get that modern trend into your home immediately.
