Glass Door Refrigerators Are the New Stainless Steel

If you are looking for a way to refresh your kitchen, keep an eye on the latest trend in the kitchen: fridges with glass doors. They are hot in Europe, which means that the trend should soon be landing. Brands such as Balay, GE, SubZero and Fisher & Paykel all have a version of a refrigerator with glass panels available.

The pros

Why change your stainless steel or color refrigerator for one with glass panel doors? Durability. Compared to metals such as stainless steel, glass door refrigerators do not damage so easily, especially if you use a soft towel or soft glass cleaners. Their shine makes them look new in the coming years. Glass door refrigerators come in different types of glass plates, varying from high-gloss colored glass to frosted glass to stainless steel doors with a clear glass window insert.

The cons

Fridges with glass doors often have fingerprints easily, just like stainless steel refrigerators. And if you choose to go with a clear glass panel door, be prepared to be ultra-organized, since the contents of the refrigerator are easy to see even when the door is closed.

Now that we have weighed up the pros and cons, look at these 20 kitchens with fridges with glass doors.
