Kitchen mistake
myyorkiesMarch 28, 2013
We just had our kitchen redone thanks to Hurricane Sandy and I made many mistakes due to the fog I was in but the biggest was putting clear glass doors on the top cabinets next to the stove. I could really use the space so I would prefer not to use them for decorating. Any suggestions? I don't want to use the contact like paper on the inside as the heat might loosen it. Thanks for any other suggestions.

Spray-on frosted glass paint could work. Alternatively, fit shirred curtains inside, with rods at top and bottom.

If the solutions above don't work, consider just replacing the glass in those couple doors. Any local glass shop should be able to do it and should have a variety of glass types for you to choose from.

I have seen mirrors or mirror paint used behind glass and it looks very inexpensive and gives the impression of more space....just a thought.

You can get window films to stick on as well that make the glass appear frosted. Double check with the manufacturer about heat resistance.

I think onthefence is referring to obscure glass as a retrofit. Good idea. Many kitchens now have open shelving instead of upper cabinets...or check out his kitchen with all glass door uppers. Do you notice what is inside or is it background?
