Your Guide to Kitchen Cabinet Refacing
Customize your Home with Glass Door Kitchen Cabinets
Refacing your kitchen cabinets can give one of the most popular rooms in your home new life, but how can you make your kitchen stand out from the crowd? One way might be to add some decorative glass doors to your wall cabinets that create visual accents or allow the display of dinnerware you're particularly proud of. Glass door kitchen cabinets can be used throughout the entire kitchen or in just one area to make a statement and draw your guests' eyes.
How to Create Your Own Glass Door Kitchen Cabinets
High end custom kitchens often use glass door kitchen cabinets that come from a manufacturer, but you can create your own during your refacing project. Cabinet companies that sell doors and drawer fronts for refacing projects usually have doors available that are set up to receive glass panels, and in most cases the doors can be purchased in the same styles and wood species as their solid doors. Many companies call them mullion door panels and they can be substituted for some of the solid doors on your list. Pricing varies, but expect to pay in the range of about $15 a square foot for an oak cathedral style door set up for glass.
Glass panels are available from your local glass companies or order specialty cabinet glass from online glass retailers who offer styles such as:
Clear glass panels can cost as little as $20 each from a local company, but specialty cabinet glass can run much higher depending on what pattern you choose. Always make sure your cabinet glass is laminated or safety as a precaution against kitchen accidents.
