Soft sheer shades help bring light into a glass-filled kitchen
Dec 9 2010
Interior design columnist Mark McCauley believes glass doors shouldn't be relegated to the bathroom shower.
Glass doors and other glass features within a small kitchen will open up the space.
Glass doors in the kitchen, whether they are placed at the main entry or a doorway that leads to the next room are just the beginning of how glass can give the illusion of more space in a small kitchen.
"One of the simplest ways of expanding a kitchen is incorporating glass, which lets you see through the objects, thereby enhancing the feeling of spaciousness or what designers call 'negative space,'" he writes for HGTV.com
Glass can be incorporated into the kitchen cabinetry to display attractive dishes and cookware. There are also glass-based countertops and highly reflective glass tile available to incorporate this expansive, see-through style.
Mirrors also have a place in the kitchen either as a backsplash or as individual pieces placed around the room to lighten the look.
Windows are an obvious place to make the most of the glass in a small kitchen, but an attractive window treatment will make them more of a focal point. Soft sheer shades are a good choice because they are durable, but have an elegant look to offset the glass features of the kitchen.
