The glass insert kitchen cabinet style makes use of a glass panel instead of a full solid wood cabinet door face. Also known as the glass framed door, this type of kitchen cabinet design can use either clear glass, smoked or frosted glass, colored glass or textured glass. The most common type of glass panel used for this design is the clear glass which allows the users to see the contents of the cabinets without having to open the door. Alternatively, frosted glass can be used if you want to keep clutter out of sight while still providing variation in the finishes and breaking off the heaviness of solid wood cabinetry. Frosted glass is also more commonly used for more modern and contemporary designs.
The major drawback of thermofoil kitchen cabinets is that it does not stand up to heat well. Their poor resistance to heat causes the laminate to pull away from the MDF panel. WIth that, installing them too close to a heat source may potentially cause a problem later on, but this issue can be rectified by installing a heat shield for the cabinets. Another problem that thermofoil kitchen cabinets pose is that the light color variants tend to have some discoloration and may turn yellowish over time. However, the positive features of thermofoil kitchen cabinets till outweigh the negative ones, which make them a cost effective kitchen cabinet option.
