Complementing Kitchens with Stained Glass Cabinets


As a Scottish Stained Glass designer, I get to work with our clients to create the glasswork that they are dreaming of.  One of my recent projects is helping a family build their dream kitchen with our custom work to match their unique style.

Every kitchen needs a facelift at some point.  It might be adding a new appliance or two, new floors, or a new, fresh countertop.  Or, it may mean trading the out a few of the solid wood cabinet doors for some sparkle with the addition of some leaded beveled glass.

Stained Glass Can Create a Stand-Out Kitchen

Kitchen Cabinets Stained Glass ColoradoA kitchen I’m working on right now, is a 12 years old, and my clients are completely gutting it to create their dream kitchen.   Walls are coming down, sinks and appliances are trading places, and the plans to include leaded and beveled glass doors on 6 different cabinet fronts are part of the grand plan.

Two tall stained glass cabinet doors will sit aside a bar area.  They will be the showcase position and design of all the glass we are adding.  Inside cabinet lighting and glass shelves will allow design elements to stand out, such as the bevels, and the red and amber leaves that will be glowing.   The main glass itself will be mostly see through to allow the wine glass collection to show and sparkle through the beautiful cabinet door additions.

A large corner cabinet will also be lit to make the bevels chosen to be artwork in the kitchen.  Four more cabinets, set up in pairs, will be a more simple, but complimentary design to the others.   The main glass chosen for these smaller cabinet doors will be clear in color, but incorporate textured glass to obscure the view of other kitchen items.

Inspired Kitchen Stained Glass

All of the glass cabinet doors will add an extra wow factor to the newly designed kitchen.   The bar cabinets with the clear bevels and the colored leaves will complement the foyer doors to the dining room that were custom built for this same family about a year ago.   They also have stained glass in a single French door, designed with clear textured glass and bevels that sparkle to the back yard.   This glass was the inspiration for the other new kitchen cabinets.

Stay tuned, I’ll provide you with the finished photos! If you have any questions about our process, or to learn more about adding our custom stained glass to your home, contact us today.  We’ll pair you with an expert designer and get started on your project!
