Recently, glass became a popular kitchen and bathroom cabinet design options because of the brightness it brings into any area. Glass will naturally reflect sunlight or man-made light and as such can make a small room feel and look larger. With glass shelves inside of your kitchen or bathroom cabinets, you will find endless applications.
You can integrate glass as the shelves in your kitchen or bathroom cabinets, or as inlaid windows or panels on the cabinet doors. This does bring with it the downside of exposing all of the contents of your cabinets, unless you utilize a frosted or colored glass option. With beveled glass you can add new dimensions to your cabinet doors.
For modern or oriental kitchen or bathroom cabinet designs you can use laquered cabinets. These offer a smooth sheen for any kitchen or bathroom cabinet designs with a variety of color and finish options. The downside is that laquered items are prone to chipping and discoloration over time.
