A Guide to Glass kitchen Cabinets
We pride ourselves not only on the quality of our cabinet doors, but also the level of customisation we provide. Our aim is to be able to provide you with your dream kitchen for a great price, and we are confident that you will not find a product of the same quality for as low a price anywhere else.
Our glass kitchen cabinet doors are a popular option for a variety of different kitchen styles, and it is easy to see why. The frame is made of sustainable European oak, with the glazed panels manufactured using toughened glass to ensure they meet the highest safety requirements in both British and European standards, as well as our own quality expectations.
Shaker or Traditional?
When selecting your glass-fronted cabinets, you can choose from either our Shaker or Traditional doors, to ensure they coordinate the remainder of your kitchen. Traditional cabinet doors feature a more detailed design for a classic look, whilst our Shaker doors are the perfect option in a modern kitchen.
Our Shaker doors have a large, singular pane of glass in the centre of the frame, whilst our Traditional doors feature a classic design comprising of a number of smaller panes. Shaker doors are offered with frosted glass and traditional doors come with tinted glass as standard – however, if you prefer, you can choose to have frosted panels in a Traditional glazed door. We recommend that frosted panels are combined with lighter shades and tinted panels with darker colours for a balanced look.
What sizes are available?
We have a range of sizes of glazed kitchen cabinet doors, ensuring we have something suitable for every kitchen. For our standard 715mm-high doors, we offer three widths of 396mm, 496mm and 596mm, and you can also buy glazed doors in a size of 896mm x 496mm (height x width).
What colours are available?
espoke Farrow & Ball colour options are available on any of our glazed cabinet doors. Alternatively, you could opt to have the doors in our elegant lacquered finish. Three coats of scratch-resistant lacquer are used to finish the doors, providing a glossy, luxurious look that showcases the beauty of the timber. Before paint or varnish is applied, we meticulously sand down our doors to ensure as smooth a finish as possible whilst still allowing the oak grain to show. Should you prefer, you can choose to leave the wood sanded ready for a treatment of your own preference.
Pros and cons of glass kitchen cabinet doors
Glazed cabinet door panels are fantastic for displaying some of your best crockery or prized china – almost like turning your kitchen into a functional art gallery – and make the kitchen feel more light and airy than solid oak doors. Our toughened European-made glass is made to the highest standard to ensure it will be safe for you and your family and all our glass kitchen cabinet doors are fitted with top-of-the-range Blum BLUMOTION hinges and soft-close fittings.
As glazed cabinet doors are slightly see-through, the cabinet will need to be kept tidy and dust-free for the best effect. Their transparency means we do not recommend you put valuable or expensive items at the front of the cabinet, especially if your units are visible from a window or patio door. Our glass-panelled doors do command a slightly higher price than their solid oak equivalents, but this is due to the additional work required to create them.
