Clean Glass Regularly

When it comes to the aesthetic appeal of your cabinets, nothing is more important than regularly cleaning your cabinet glass. While glass cabinets look sleeker and, in most cases, outright better than plain wood cabinets, they also get dirtier quicker. If you want to avoid smudges or stains, you will need to clean regularly. Luckily, cleaning glass cabinets is pretty easy. All you need is the right cloth and glass cleaner. If you have a stain or a scratch, however, you will need more help.

Avoid Slamming Cabinets and Use Preventative Measures

One risk of cabinet glass is the potential for the glass to shatter. This threat presents itself in a number of ways. First, with kitchen cabinets, slamming cabinet doors shut can result in the glass shattering. This is the most common cause of cabinet glass shattering in the kitchen, but they can also shatter if they are opened into an object or person. For cabinet glass display cases, they are most typically damaged by impacts or excessive pressure placed on the pane.

You can use preventative measures to keep your glass from shattering. These include careful positioning of nearby furniture, and installing bumpers on the inside of your cabinets.

Store the Right Things in Your Cabinets

You shouldn’t store everything inside glass cabinets. For example, avoid storing heavy items that might tip over and break the glass, such as trophies or tools. The most common things stored in glass cabinets include dishes and glasses. Cabinet glass is also often used to store books and decorative items.

Maintenance Tips for Cabinet Glass Features

Kitchen cabinets

If you have glass cabinets, keeping them clean and maintaining them can be more difficult than traditional wood features. The most important maintenance tip for cabinet glass is a simple one: don’t break the glass. However, there is more that goes into the process, especially when it comes to keeping your cabinets looking great. In today’s blog post, Ryan’s all-glass will take a look at a few maintenance tips for cabinet glass features.

Don’t Procrastinate

People don’t typically think of staining when it comes to cabinet glass, but glass stains are very real. With most glass cabinets being in the kitchen, it is very possible for your cabinet glass to become stained. The biggest mistake you can make with glass stains is to procrastinate when removing them. Stains can set in quickly and become more difficult to remove if you don’t take care of them quickly. If you see splatter or steam on your glass that could potentially stain, clean it immediately to prevent further damage.

Close Cabinets With Care

When you first get your new cabinets you will probably take great care of them, but as the weeks go by you might become less careful. When they’re brand new, you’ll be more likely to clean them regularly and be gentler with them. To prevent broken glass or damage to hinges and frames, you will want to close your cabinets carefully and avoid slamming them. Choosing quality cabinet door handles will help.

Use the Right Cabinet Glass Cleaners

If you want to keep your cabinet glass looking like new for months and years to come, you will need to clean it regularly. However, the careless cleaning it isn’t enough; you have to clean your glass the right way. Cheap, low-quality glass cleaners will lead to smudgy and foggy glass. Find the right glass cleaner to keep your glass looking brand new. Additionally, use the right materials to clean the glass. A cheap washcloth can smudge up your glass and even scratch it. Use soft cotton washcloths or even invest in high-quality microfiber cloth.
