Glass Front Storage Cabinet

When you need storage in your home but you don’t want to lose sight of your aesthetic knickknacks, a glass-front storage cabinet is what you need. These cabinets can protect your treasures from dust, keep them out of the way, but still keep them on display! A glass-fronted cabinet lends a certain air of formality to any room; but, fortunately, with the abundance of styles available on the market, you can easily find a cabinet that matches any aesthetic.

Here, we’ve found ten beautiful glass front cabinets to inspire you as you make your home a stylish, organized place to be.

Light wood, clear glass, two shelves and a perfect height for hip-level storage: This glass front storage cabinet is a versatile piece that would be excellent in a bathroom, for book storage, or as a cabinet next to a desk for office supplies.

Shelves like these tend to be great for books, as you can keep your favorite reads in sight but away from dust. We also like a cabinet that doesn’t sit flush to the ground, instead hitting just an inch or so of clearance; this tends to help a room feel a little airier, even with the same amount of furniture present.

Do you like the look of distressed or reclaimed wood?

If so, you can definitely incorporate that rustic feel into your home, even with the luxurious feel of glass-framed doors. This type of larger cabinets allows both materials to make a full impact—and we love the fact that even the handles on this type of cabinet have the same grey hue. This really lets the texture of the wood itself be the main player in this design.

Looking for something a little more modern than distressed wood? A wooden cabinet that’s painted in one sleek color can give you the edge that you need to take your home’s look fully into this century.

If you want to go the extra mile to reduce visual clutter even with glass-fronted cabinets, go for a frosted glass. It’ll keep the look elevated, but still allow privacy for the treasures you keep inside.

An x-frame is a staple of modern farmhouse-chic decor. However, if you already have a lot of straight lines and hard corners in your space, it may be time to soften those lines into beautiful curves.

We love this modern take on a farmhouse x-frame because it feels a little more relaxed. Take a look and see if it feels like a way you’d like to go with your decor!

Glass panels don’t have to be huge. If you’d rather smaller windows, either for decor or safety’s sake, you’re in luck. There are cabinets like this one that are painted in gorgeous colors, have intricate glass designs, and are made for storage in small corners in your home. We’d purchase a few of these to add practical storage with a soft vintage vibe, or even use them as end tables in a spare bedroom.

A full size storage cabinet with small glass windows

If you’re looking for a full-sized cabinet but don’t want glass panels that big, you can also get a large cabinet that only has smaller glass windows in the upper halves of the doors. This allows you to retain the visual interest of glass, but avoid finger smudges from curious children. This cabinet has a farmhouse feel due to the x-framing of the windows, which is a really beautiful aesthetic detail for your home!

Love the farmhouse vibe of the full-sized cabinet we just talked about, but don’t have a full wall to place it against in your home? No worries; you can get a half-cabinet that looks very similar. With just enough space for a few towels or toiletries, this could even be perfect to use in a bathroom where you don’t have enough built-in storage.

The shelves inside make it and similar cabinets an ideal option for book storage or even as a china cabinet in your modern, minimalist home.

Store your media players, games, tech accessories and more behind closed doors so they don’t clutter up your room, and instead enjoy a beautiful glass-fronted cabinet like this! 

Our advice Buying Guide

Can you put glass in existing storage cabinets?

For an alternative to buying a glass front storage cabinet, you can create a fresh modern look by putting glass panels in existing storage cabinets with a few simple steps and the right tools and supplies. First, determine what type of storage cabinet doors you have. Look for those with panel inserts that are raised or flush. Solid cabinet doors are not ideal for replacing with glass fronts.

Unfasten the cabinet doors without taking down the hinges and measure the panel areas, including the width, height, and thickness. Clamp the frame to your workspace and remove the panels with a router or circular saw. You may need a chisel to free corners and lift the panel out.

For the glass panel inserts, you can provide the measurements to a professional glazier for custom cuts. You must consider what type of glass to use. Choices range from transparent to frosted to textured glass options. Ensure that you use tempered glass for safety.

Apply clear silicone caulk around the panel frame’s edges, carefully lay the glass in place, and press. Let dry fully before rehanging. Other options to secure the glass panels include brackets or mirror clips.

What are the pros & cons of glass front storage cabinets?

A glass front storage cabinet acts as both functional storage space and an elegant piece of furniture in your home. There are several pros to glass front cabinets. They provide safe housing for delicate dishware while allowing you to show it off. In the kitchen, glass fronts allow for easy visibility of your items so you don’t have to remember which cabinet they are in and guests don’t need to hunt for cups or plates.

The only challenge with glass front cabinets is that stored items look better when they are organized. With see-through glass panels, the storage cabinet looks messy if these items are placed haphazardly. You can easily fix this with a short organizing session, which leaves your space looking refreshed.

Are glass front storage cabinets more expensive than wood?

A glass front storage cabinet will likely be slightly more expensive than an all-wood cabinet. Why? It takes time and skill to cut and fit glass panes into specific wooden cabinets, and some types of glass can simply be more expensive than some types of wood.

There’s also a process known as ‘glazing’ that a craftsman must perform to finish a glass front storage cabinet, and that takes time and additional materials as well.
