Add Color to Your Kitchen

Colored glass inserts in kitchen cabinet doors, pantry doors or decorative windows can make your kitchen more enjoyable to prepare food and entertain in. Even if you prefer neutral colors or natural wood and stone for your cabinets, walls and countertops, a splash of bright color through rich decorative glass inserts can add individuality and sparkle.

Embrace Patterns

Incorporate patterns in your home’s interior design to add interest and sophistication. Coordinate patterned glass in doors, cabinet glass inserts, or decorative glass partitions with existing design elements to create well-integrated and balanced schemes. Use fluted glass to add retro-chic charm and a sense of privacy.

   customize stock cabinets

Budget-Friendly Cabinet Customization

High-quality stock cabinets from a home center typically cost 20-30% less than semi-custom or custom units of the same grade, and can look identical or better. Save by ordering stock cabinets prepped for glass and selecting your own decorative glass inserts for a custom look without the custom cost.
