The Light at the End of the Tunnel -- If not in the Cabinet!



The upper cupboards of the above cabinets were supposed to have been glazed. Apparently, the manufacturer does not do these particular cabinets glazed, because they are too large.  They claim that they sent an email when the order was placed, but not being suspicious at all, I suspect they just sent the non-glazed doors without explanation...There is a way to work around this by removing the centre panels from the present doors, routing the inside and fitting glass -- this would be done by our kitchen people.

We have decided that  we will only have the cabinet on the left glazed and will leave the one over the television as it is. I have had confirmation of this plan and await work to begin . Then all that is left is to choose the colour of the paint for the walls, which we hope will be a very pale shade of salmony apricot. Whew! What a palaver!

  1. They look good, but the small print is usually so small you can't read it anyway. God luck with getting what you want. Have a good weekend Diane

  2. We love our glazed doors with glasses on the shelves behind.
    We had this problem with a previous kitchen and simply took the doors off and took them to a small local glass and window company who were happy to oblige for not a lot of money.
    Bon courage!

    1. Appreciate your encouraging words, Jean. Somebody is supposed to come by soon to remove the doors and take them to the joiner.

  3. We had glass in so many kitchen cupboard doors. We spent a lot of time keeping the contents behind tidy.

    1. Yes, keeping it all tidy is a definite must! And it helps to now be having only one cabinet with glass doors instead of two!

  6. I agree with your choice of glass on the larger doors. It will look wonderful when finished, but rather a pity that the communication (or lack of it!) let you down.

    1. One of the drawbacks to not being here when the work was done.
