Enhance your kitchen designs with latest glass cabinets & kitchen cupboards above stovetop that will give you space to fit in everything you need while cooking

 

These days, the modern Indian kitchen is becoming into the coolest place in the home with the latest fittings, equipment and technology being available to us in various options and price points. And, while these come in several finishes you can choose for a stylish modular kitchen, the recent material that’s caught our eye is glass. From glass cabinets to kitchen cupboards with clear fronts, here are the styles that are inspiring us.

1. Create a Glass Kitchen Cabinet for all your Crockery and Glassware

Probably the best part about glass kitchen cabinets is being able to immediately get a visual of everything inside it, making it one of the best options for storing your everyday dining essentials such as the plates, bowls, saucers, cups, glasses and mugs. For anyone with a couple or multiple crockery sets to choose from, immediately getting a visual of what you can use will make your decision making easier (as opposed to rummaging through drawers or opening multiple cabinets to search for the right set).

We also love the added counter space that extends beyond this glass kitchen cupboard, which makes room for whipping up a quick cuppa or space for resting things as your take them out of the cabinet.

2. Translucent Glass will keep all the Untidy Bits Hidden Away

You might want the openness of glass and the lighter aesthetic it lends to the kitchen design, but still need the privacy of keeping everything that’s stored away hidden. In this case, you don’t have to compromise, and can still have glass façades on your kitchen cabinets and cupboards. Installing translucent or frosted glass on the fronts of your cabinetry (and even drawer fronts) will do the trick. This is a clever option for cabinets fitted right above the sink, where you can stow away freshly washed dishes for drying—make sure the bottom of each cabinet is open with  mesh or wireframe inserts to let the excess water drip out.

Style Tip:

Want to look organised but can’t seem to get around to creating perfectly stacked shelves and neatly laid out drawers à la mood boards on Pinterest and your favourite users on Instagram? Frosted glass kitchen cabinet designs are the best way to create the aura of an open door to neatness, while still concealing an unsightly mess from the untrained eye.
 

3. Easy Access for all your Essentials

For anyone who cooks, the struggle for reaching out for things you need every few minutes is too real—especially if you have to scour through drawers and cabinets hoping your food won’t burn in the mean time. Instead, a row of clear glass kitchen cabinets or kitchen cupboards resting above your stovetop will give you space to fit in everything you need while cooking close at hand.

Style Tip:

A clever way to break the monotony of continuous glass kitchen cabinets is interspersing them with open shelves, which will work wonderfully for storing your mugs or glassware. However, if your kitchen is prone to too much dust, limit these to only a couple of shelves for only storing items that are used and washed every day.

4. AN All-glass Floating China Cabinet to Dictate the Style of the Room

Whether its the heirloom pieces passed down for generations in your family or the gorgeous china set you received on your wedding day, our crockery sets quietly tell a longer story of our family history, our design choices or a sentimental memory we hold close to our hearts. And, we like to showcase this to extend its design, intricate patterns, style and colour with the rest of the home. 

As the china cupboard is the best place to display these wares in the living or dining room, similarly, even in the kitchen, you can create an all glass floating china cabinet to place all your crockery and create a mood in the heart of the home.

 

Style Tip:

If you’re looking to infuse some personality in your kitchen but don’t want to add permanent additions with the colour of your paint or the finishes on your cabinet, using your glass cabinets to display your possessions is the best way to temporarily add colour and pattern to the room. You can swap what you choose to display whenever your mood changes.

6. Intersperse Wood with Glass for a Unique Look

Perhaps the monotony of all-wood or all-glass isn’t for you—then, have the best of both by pairing the doors of some of your cupboards with a wood finish for kitchen and the rest of the fronts of your cabinetry in glass. Not only will this create an interesting pattern visually, but also give you the freedom to decide what you’d like to display and what you’d prefer to stay hidden. For kitchen utilities that are essential but aren’t appealing to the eye or lend any aesthetic to your décor, use your closed, solid kitchen cabinets for storage.

 However, for your crockery, souvenirs collected over the years and mementos, the glass cupboards and displays will be a unique way to showcase this and enhance the style and mood of the entire space.

 

Another way to embellish the style of your kitchen is to add acrylic kitchen cabinets where there is space.
 

7. Get Creative with your Kitchen Cupboards

When it comes to your kitchen cabinet design, much like the rest of your interiors, your choices are limitless. From your finishes to the styles and moods you choose along with your lighting fixtures, you can mix and match several elements to create a unique look that works for you. Another great idea would be experimenting with colors for kitchen cabinets. But what if all this seems too permanent and you’d like the option of a little flexibility to move things around whenever you feel like a quick room makeover. Installing smaller cupboards that can be moved to another wall or a chest or set of drawers on wheels can help you rearrange your kitchen furniture as the need arises. Installing these with glass fronts help make them versatile so that they can be paired with anything they’re placed next to.

8. Make the Most of Every Nook and Corner with your Kithen Cabinets

When planning your kitchen design, especially if you’re living in a small-space home, it’s important to maximise every nook and corner of the room, including the lengths and breaths of the walls. This rule applies to the kitchen, as well, where a corner or niche can double as a great space for storage. However, if you feel that fitting out too many cupboards and cabinets across the walls can make a space look crammed and cluttered, swap out the wooden fronts with glass for lighter and more delicate look.
