Glass Act

Last Updated on : 1st October 2019

Glass may be a humble material, but it has a myriad of uses and if there’s one trend that is catching the imagination of anyone planning a new kitchen, it’s glazing. From a Crittall-style pantry to an antique-style glazed cabinet, glass has everyone interested.

Mirrored glass is currently trending; used as a splashback it can really open up the space, creating an illusion of width. It’s particularly useful in compact or galley kitchens, where space is at a premium. A current favourite is in an antique bronze finish, which has a subtle tone that suits most contemporary schemes. Or you could take the plunge and replace your entire splashback with a window, as architect Simon Whitehead did in a recent project we collaborated on (www.simonwhitehead.com).

If you have a piece of glazed freestanding bespoke furniture, such as ahand-painted Roundhouse Nightingale cabinet,with glass shelves, an antiqued mirrored back is a beautifully decorative design detail and is a gorgeous way of displaying glassware.

Also, a huge hit with many, and hard on the heels of the trend for Crittall-style glazing in new extensions, comes the walk-in pantry with Crittall-style glazed doors. Glazing is a great solution if the walk-in pantry is designed to be off the main kitchen; installing glazed doors will prevent the space from feeling too cramped. For a pantry that’s designed to work in, rather than one that’s purely for grab-and-go storage, a bespoke glazed pantry means it won’t feel like a dark space and will also provide a view of beautiful storage within. However, because the glazing means that you can see everything inside, you will need to consider whether you mind if it gets untidy.

Many clients want glazed cabinetry in their kitchens, both for display purposes and also to help break up a bank of wall cupboards. Larders with part glazed doors are also popular, with the glazing providing a physical barrier meaning that the interior can be different, for example allowing a more industrial interior with vintage surfaces.

Whatever your style, don’t overlook glass as a beautiful addition to your bespoke kitchen.
