In today’s blog post, Ryan’s all-glass is going to take a look at some of the best tips for living with cabinet glass.
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.
