Between having the classic cupboards with door and the open shelves there is a middle term made up of the cupboards with glass doors that today occupy us. They are a great intermediate solution that we can use in our kitchen. In addition there is a wide variety of crystals as we will see that will allow us to have a kitchen completely to our liking.
First of all we have the transparent crystals that allow the cabinets to become practically open shelves, at least visually. In addition we avoid that the objects that we keep in them are taking dust as when they are on a shelf.
When we have transparent crystals we have to be very careful with what we keep because everything will be seen. The prettier the saved items are, the better.
Usually the glass doors are reserved for the cabinets that are hung on the wall. In the rest it is better to use wooden doors.
Also in the dining room we can use glass doors in some furniture, for example, the one we use to store crockery or glassware.
If so much transparency does not just convince you there are crystals with less "treacherous" finishes that will partially hide what you keep in your cupboards. The frosted glass It is a crystal treated with acid that has lost much of its transparency.
There is a wide variety of different finishes with different degrees of opacity as well as different design patterns.
But even in this case we have to reserve these cabinets to store attractive objects that do not spoil the aesthetics of the kitchen.
Another type of non-transparent crystals are the Textured . Among these there is a great variety also of finishes and designs that will allow us to fulfill our expectations. You have to be a little careful when choosing the pattern you want so that it does not go too fast in fashion.
Like the frosted glass, the texturing partially hides what we have inside the cabinets.
Some are quite transparent but they always blur the shapes of what we have in the cupboards. As we see a simple geometric design like this grill type is quite timeless.
We also have crystals with finishes less seen like this one with bubble effect. It reminds us of the glass of a window on a rainy day and although they are quite transparent they diffuse a little the contents of the cabinets.
It is a crystal that goes very well with vintage furniture but also with contemporary style. The effect of light when reflected in bubbles is very interesting.
We could say that with this type of glass we have all the advantages of transparent glass but without its drawbacks. It will not be necessary to have them as clean as the transparent crystals that in this aspect are the most demanding.
Lead crystal is a type of crystal in which calcium oxide, the usual component of glass, has been replaced by lead oxide. Lead crystal is used for decorative objects such as decorative figures and also in jewelry and jewelery.
Lead crystal looks great in kitchens of classic design or retro inspiration. We can also find different finishes in lead crystal, such as tinted or stained glass.
