Glass Display Cabinets in the Kitchen

Want to know what we here at Design Monarchy are currently crushing on? We absolutely love the idea of using glass-fronted cabinets or vitrines as additional kitchen storage. While the concept seems rather traditional, these type of cabinets can easily fit into a style of interior – anything from farmhouse to contemporary. As one blogger described it, “they are as versatile as jeans or a white t-shirt”.

A cabinet with glass doors allows for practical storage – you can immediately see what dishes you have without having to root around in the cupboard.

It also allows your dishes to become part of the show – a focal point. So much character is added to a kitchen if your gorgeous collections of china, glassware and vases are in plain view. In fact, with the current trend focus on more individual, lived-in interiors and décor, your crockery doesn’t have to be anything special or expensive. It just has to be you.

So whether they are loose-standing or fitted, that is why we have a big ole furniture crush we on glass-fronted cabinets in kitchens. How about you, do you like the idea too?
