What Are Glass Panels for Cabinets?

Glass panels are custom-cut pieces of glass that fit inside a glass-ready cabinet door. Glass-ready cabinets have been a popular choice in kitchens for centuries. Glass panel cabinets can make a kitchen feel more open and airy. It’s also great for showcasing fine China, plants, and other decorations. Glass-ready cabinet doors with glass panels pair perfectly with traditional, contemporary, and vintage aesthetics. It's also a great add-in that will add depth and dimension to kitchen designs. 

Glass inserts come in a variety of styles. The most popular styles include clear and frosted. You can also invest in textured glass like reeded or seeded to add a more vintage or traditional touch.  

Installing glass panels is a relatively straightforward process. Here's how you can do it in six easy steps:

  • Remove the cabinet doors from your cabinets 

  • Measure the height and width of the glass inserts 

  • Cut the glass panels yourself or purchase pre-cut inserts from a glass supplier

  • Add the glass to the glass-ready cabinets and secure it with a silicone sealant

  • Once it's dry, rehang the cabinet doors
