Replacing solid kitchen cabinet doors with glass doors can change the look and ambiance of your kitchen. Depending on your decorative preferences and storage needs, you can opt for any one of a variety of different glass and styles.

Kitchen Cabinets with Glass: Doors that Match Your Vision

Here are a few options for incorporating kitchen cabinets with glass doors into your kitchen renovation plan.

  • Clear glass: Clear glass doors are typically installed in upper cabinets and allow viewing of your cabinet contents. Glass cabinet doors can be useful in a pantry area, or for kitchen cabinets holding attractive dinnerware or unique items.
  • Textured or opaque glass: Varieties include stained glass, rippled or bubbled glass, and glass embossed with textured designs. If durability is a concern, consider installing Lexan™ or other plastic panels in place of glass.
  • Tempered glass: This glass is commonly used for kitchen cabinet doors; you can find cabinet doors entirely constructed of tempered glass. Tempered glass may crack due to its manufacturing process.
  • Opaque and textured glass is a great option for concealing kitchen cabinet contents while adding visual and textural interest to your kitchen.
  • Paned glass: Traditional decor often features paned windows, and you can select kitchen cabinet doors resembling your kitchen windows and doors.

Shop online when planning your project. You can find products and ideas that can help with improving kitchen design and functionality. Popular brands of kitchen cabinets with glass doors include American Woodmark, Ascentia, KraftMaid and Thomasville.

Costs can vary depending on cabinet door materials, the size and number of doors you'll need. Home improvement centers and online vendors can provide cost estimates.
