There are obviously quite a few options to choose from when it comes to glass kitchen cabinet doors. It‘s important to know what you`re looking for and to have a specific purpose in mind so you can pick the best option for you and your kitchen. For example, if you want to put things on display, opt for transparent glass and turn your kitchen cabinets into display cases but if you`d rather have some privacy, then perhaps you should pick frosted or opaque glass. Let`s say you‘re quite invested in this type of look and you'd like to adopt it for your own kitchen. You don`t necessarily have to replace your old cabinets with new ones to get the look. You can just give them a makeover or you can use solid cabinets together with glass front cabinets for a contrasting look that has a big visual impact.
Actually, a quartz countertop is not going to be 100 percent quartz. The material is man-made, combining quartz with other materials. It is actually 90% ground with 8-10% resins, polymers, and pigments. The quartz minerals are mixed with the resin and then treated with pressure and heat to form the countertop material, which very hard and granite-like. How finely the quartz is ground will determine the appearance. Coarsely ground quartz produces a flecked appearance and finely ground quartz gives a smoother look. Countertop thickness ranges from ½ inch to 1-¼ inches, depending on style, brand, and size. Because the resin binds all the quartz crystals together, the end product is nonporous, making it exceptionally sanitary. There are no cracks or crevices for bacteria and germs to settle in and it serves as a perfect work surface. You can even purchase quartz countertops that are certified as food safe. It‘s also waterproof so it can be used with an under-mounted sink. Unlike natural stone countertops, quartz counters do not need to be sealed. Nonporous surfaces like quartz also help resist stains. They are easy to clean using mild soap, water, and a soft cloth. When buying natural stone, you have to choose the specific slab you want to use thanks to the variations in color and pattern that Mother Nature provides in a single slab of stone. This is not the case with quartz countertops. Because they are manufactured, you won’t have wide variations in color and pattern and can have a more consistent look.

A peninsula is pretty similar to an island but since it‘s attached on one side to a wall it doesn’t need a solid base. It can look something like this, with just a solid top and a side panel for support. Peninsulas are more suitable for small kitchens. They can extend the counter space and offer additional storage space if needed. Other possibilities include using the peninsula as a bar or as a prep area. In a way, a peninsula is just a table attached on one side to a wall or an existing piece of furniture. Peninsulas don‘t necessarily include storage underneath their tops although that too can be an option. You can use a peninsula to define the kitchen as a separate space in the case of an open floor plan or to visually separate the cooking space from the rest of the room.
