As the name suggests, leaded glass is very rich in lead. The high content of this heavy metal is responsible for the unique look of this glass and the tint that makes it special and appreciated for its decorative qualities. Leaded glass looks elegant and has this very appealing artisanal look but it can be pretty difficult to find. Alternatives include tinted or stained glass.
White cabinets remain at the top of kitchen wishlist. The following kitchens, pulled from the most popular photos feature cabinets in various takes on wood and paint tones to create spaces that range from rich and warm to light and airy. In England, a cloudy green paint color (Sage by Neptune) establishes a soothing farmhouse vibe. Natural light shines on a copper farmhouse sink, creating an artificial sun that’s further reflected by brass cabinet hardware, only to be tamed by dark countertops.
This is a special type of glass with a very particular look. Seeded glass features all these bubbles which can be tiny or large, depending on the source and style. It’s a look that suits vintage and traditional decors but which can also look interesting in modern settings. In the kitchen, it can be used to obscure the contents of the cabinets without really hiding anything.
If you like the idea of having glass cabinets in the kitchen but you’re not completely comfortable with all the transparency and the fact that the contents of the cabinets will be put on display for everyone to see, there’s an option that might be just right. Frosted glass is sleek and cool and it looks great in modern kitchens. But while frosted glass does hide the mess behind it pretty well, it’s not completely opaque so you might still be able to distinguish the silhouettes and colors behind it.
