Open shelving makes a wonderful display area for crockery, glasses and vases that are just too pretty to be hidden away behind closed doors when not in use. The problem is, open shelves are also a dust trap. Glass fronted furniture, such as this Molly Dresser from Loaf, is a much more functional option. Get inspiration from these stylish and practical glazed cabinets.
Opt for semi-translucent glass if you only want to provide a teasing glimpse of what colourful items you have stored within. This industrial-style metal and glass cabinet from Vincent and Barn is fitted with linear fluted glass that will help to make your room feel taller too.
Glazed cabinets don't only come tall and thin, as this contemporary side board from Go Modern demonstrates. Being raised up on elegant slim legs so that you can see the floor beneath, enhances the spacious feel in the room as well.
If you don't want everything your unit contains to be out on display, opt for a glazed cabinet with some hidden storage as well. This mid-century modern style unit from Cuckooland has two deep handless drawers beneath the main glazed area. Remember, glazed units take the eye further inside and help to add depth to even the smallest rooms.
