However, if you never added glass panels to cabinet doors, then you may not know that this project can actually be DIY-friendly if you have a few tools, some time, and a bit of experience. -Disclosure: This blog post contains affiliate links and we may receive a small commission for purchases made.
The first, which is also the quickest and easiest, is to purchase new cabinet doors that are cut for glass inserts. The other option for installing glass inserts is to modify your existing cabinet doors. Before we get started with the step-by-step part of the guide, let’s take a moment to talk about the glass inserts. Plexiglass, also known as acrylic plastic sheeting, can be used instead of glass for your cabinet door’s panel.
You get plexiglass, and regular glass, cut to size at most hardware stores, so sourcing your material won’t be an issue. Drill a hole in the lower-left corner of the cabinet door’s panel that is going to be cut out and replaced with the glass insert. Place the tip of the jigsaw blade into the drilled hole in the lower-left corner. Now carefully cut the panel along the frame’s outline to the top left corner hole.
Stop the jigsaw and pull the blade out when you reach the top of the left corner hole. The trim makes a frame around the edge of the glass and effectively hides the fasteners.
Use silicone caulk to attach the wood frame trim pieces to the glass edges. No matter what look you are trying to achieve, placing glass inserts into your kitchen’s cabinet doors creates an appearance of sophistication or country charm.
